Inland NW Opera to Perform at SGS on May 23

May 20, 2019

SGS parents and families are invited to a free performance of "The Toy Shop" by Inland Northwest Opera on Thursday, May 23, from 2-3pm in Founders Theater.  Students in grades K-7 will attend the performance.  

“The Toy Shop” tells the tale of a toymaker and two of his mechanical dolls who wish they were real.  All the while, a troublesome magician plots to steal the dolls from the shop, according to a preview in the Spokesman-Review.  The cast includes local performers as well as opera students from the University of Idaho and Eastern Washington University.  “It’s got a lot of comedy, props and good actors," says Dawn Wolski, the company’s general director, in another S-R story.  "They’ll be in the audience a little bit, enlisting the kids help, and really helping them see that art is fun.”  The show is travelling to other local schools as part of INO’s Opera-tunities program.
