Live Comedy: Susan Rice

The last time Susan Rice played Walla Walla, there were only 32 wineries.

The phrase "pretty funny for a woman" no longer applies in this day and age. Susan has earned her place in comedy by hard work and bringing her unique perspective to the stage night after night. She subscribes to the belief that funny is funny no matter who delivers the joke.

In 1983, comedy was just beginning in Portland, Oregon. Rice, a classically trained actress, was working a $3.85-an-hour job at a bank and hating every minute of it. Her only creative outlet was her bus rides to and from work. There she would engage and make people laugh. She was in the process of writing her one-woman show and needed an audience.

She was coming to end of her bus pass life when a notice in the local arts paper captured her eye. Open Mic. Comedians wanted. This sounded like the perfect venue to work out her material. On March 16, 1983, she stepped on the stage of the Leaky Roof Tavern and never looked back.

Her most recent credit was on Portlandia for IFC. She has been seen on HBO's Comedy Festival Caesars Palace, Comedy Central, ABC & CBS. She was voted Portland, Oregon's Funniest Person by Willamette Week and her peers and patrons in 2015.

Living History Performance: Governor Isaac Stevens

Living History Performance: Governor Isaac Stevens

Meet Washington Territory's first governor Isaac Stevens, who served from 1853 to 1857. Stevens was a very controversial figure during his lifetime as well as after. According to one historian, Kent Richards, “Isaac Stevens was most often the center of activity, providing leadership, spewing out orders and ideas, or creating controversy. He was a man either loved or hated.”

During his tenure as territorial governor, he believed that he could successfully quell the problems between the white settlers and the Indian people by negotiating treaties. The Treaties of 1855 with the Yakama, Umatilla, Nez Perce, Walla Walla and Cayuse Indians were negotiated in Walla Walla. These treaties established many important rights for Indian people and helped them maintain their traditions and culture. Additionally, the treaties led to the territory outside of reservations being populated by white settlers from the eastern part of the United States.

Governor Stevens is portrayed by Ron Klicker.

Living History Performance: Cushing Eells, Protestant Missionary

Pioneer missionaries Cushing and Myra Eells arrived in the Valley in 1838. They settled among the Spokane Indians until the tragedy at the Whitmans' mission in 1847, when they moved to the Willamette Valley.

They returned to the Walla Walla Valley at the close of the Indian wars in 1859 to reclaim the mission grounds at Waiilatpu, the Whitman Mission site. There, Cushing decided to found an educational institution, the Whitman Seminary. In 1883 it became Whitman College as a result of the Eells efforts that continued throughout their lives.

Reverend Eells is portrayed by Whitman College Professor of Roger Miles.

Live Music: Festival de Friends

The Friends of Children of Walla Walla are bringing in Banda Los Recoditos for a family festival celebrating the Latino Culture in Walla Walla.

Banda Los Recoditos is a Mexican band formed in Mazatlán, Sinaloa. It was founded in 1989 by friends and family members of Banda el Recodo by Cruz Lizárraga. Alfonso Lizárraga and Pancho Barraza, the first vocalists, were two of the more than dozen bandmembers comprising the original incarnation of the band. After releasing several albums, in 2010 the band released their album ¡Ando Bien Pedo!, featuring the single of the same title, which became a number-one hit on the Billboard Hot Latin Songs chart. Banda Recoditos is considered one of the top bands in Mexico and a favorite of Latinos in the United States as they play to sold-out crowds across the country.

The band was nominated for two important Latin-category Grammys in 2016 with their album Me Está Gustando. Banda Los Recoditos was also nominated for "Band Of the Year" in the Premios de La Radio awards.

Brodeck & Co. Photograph Gallery and the People Who Worked There

Many people have collections or access to collections of old photographs. Typically, we try to figure out who is in the photograph and when and where it was taken. But…who was behind the camera?

The subject for this discussion is the Brodeck & Co. Photograph Gallery. Henry H. Brodeck announced the opening of his business in September of 1878 and the business continued, even after his death in 1886, to about 1892 or 1893. His wife, Amelia, son, David, and brother, Albert, all ran the business at some point. Other known photographers, artists and retouchers included John R. Cawthon, Ernest H. Price, Benjamin Taliaferro, H. Schemel, W. B. Smith and Martin Wagner.

Who among this group eventually became an Episcopal priest? Who had a half-sister named “Mademoiselle Fanny,” who was an actress, danseuse, and singer on the French stage in San Francisco? Whose father died in a Civil War prisoner of war camp? Who did some early photography in Alaska? Who was five feet, four inches tall, with a high forehead, straight nose, broad chin, long face and dark complexion and wore a mustache? Who came to be involved with mining and banking interests? Whose father was a Judge and the Indian Agent for the Umatilla Indian Reservation?

Museum After Hours is a free monthly lecture series that is open to the public.

Live Cinema: Swan Lake — Royal Ballet

Live Cinema: Swan Lake — Royal Ballet

Swan Lake has had a special role in the repertory of The Royal Ballet since 1934. This Season The Royal Ballet creates a new production with additional choreography by Artist in Residence Liam Scarlett. While remaining faithful to the Petipa-Ivanov text, Scarlett will bring fresh eyes to the staging of this classic ballet, in collaboration with his long-term designer John Macfarlane.

Prince Siegfried chances upon a flock of swans while out hunting. When one of the swans turns into a beautiful woman, Odette, he is enraptured. But she is under a spell that holds her captive, allowing her to regain her human form only at night.

Swan Lake was Tchaikovsky’s first ballet score. Given its status today as arguably one of the best-loved and most admired of all classical ballets, it is perhaps surprising that at its premiere in 1877 Swan Lake was poorly received. It is thanks to the 1895 production by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov that Swan Lake has become part of not only ballet consciousness but also wider popular culture. That success is secured not only by the sublime, symphonic sweep of Tchaikovsky’s score but also by the striking choreographic contrasts between Petipa’s royal palace scenes and the lyric lakeside scenes created by Ivanov.

Film: I’ll Push You

I’ll Push You is an up-close and personal look into the dynamics of a life-long friendship between two best friends, Justin Skeesuck and Patrick Gray, as they travel across El Camino de Santiago. This feature-length documentary covers the struggle of the 35-day, 500-mile wheelchair journey across mountains, deserts, hills, and valleys and features perspectives from family and friends.

Even though the story begins with the challenge that comes with Patrick’s willingness to push Justin in a wheelchair across northern Spain, I’ll Push You also explores the struggles related to Justin’s rare neurological disease. The parallel paths of Patrick’s experience in Spain and Justin’s life journey come together in a singular moment to reveal their similarities where Patrick discovers he’s both the pusher and the pushed.

The story’s beautiful cinematography is set to poignant music tracks that underscore, perfectly, the inspiring example of love and vulnerability on display.

Their trek in 2014 captivated individuals around the world. Since returning from Spain, Justin and Patrick have been sharing their message of hope, faith, and community worldwide.

At age 19, Kevin Hines attempted to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate Bridge. Seventeen years later, he still struggles with many of the same symptoms that led him to attempt to take his life, but he is on a mission to use his story to help others stay alive. Kevin has also been one of the key catalysts in helping end a nearly 80-year long fight to construct a suicide prevention net on the iconic San Francisco bridge.

Kevin takes a journey to better understand the ripple effects his suicide attempt had on his family, friends, and the first responders who helped save him. He’s also working to shine a light on inspirational individuals, families, and organizations who are using personal pain to help others find the hope they need to heal.

A community conversation will be held following the screening.

Live Theater: Every Brilliant Thing

Every Brilliant Thing, starring Kevin Loomer, is adapted by playwright Duncan McMillan from his own short story “Sleeve Notes.” British comedian Jonny Donahue, who originated the role, shares in the writing credit. The play’s title refers to a list — of everything wonderful in the world — that the narrator writes in response to his mother attempting suicide. He starts the list at age seven with items like “ice cream” and “staying up past your bedtime,” and as the narrator grows older, the list grows longer.

The play’s story spans nearly three decades and several life-changing events, evoking laughter and tears in equal measure. The play has received critical acclaim in London, Edinburgh, and Off-Broadway in New York City.

Every Brilliant Thing invites some audience participation, primarily through asking people to read a few words aloud during the performance from slips of paper they are given as they enter the theater. A few audience members are incorporated into scenes, with the actor doing the heavy lifting. The play will be performed “in the round” with on-stage seating.

It’s the funniest play you’re ever likely to see about depression, and also the most moving

Chase Padgett in Nashville Hurricane

About 40 years ago, a mysterious acoustic guitarist appeared from nowhere, conquered the music industry, and vanished without a trace… until now. Chase Padgett becomes a manager, a mother, a mentor, and the guitar prodigy himself as each one tells their side of the rise, demise, and resurrection of the best guitar player you’ve never heard of: the Nashville Hurricane.

During the course of this one-man masterpiece, the audience learns about Henry Waltrip (the Nashville Hurricane) from his humble trailer park beginnings with his mother, Brenda, to crazy gigs on the road with his blues-playing mentor, Tyrone. The stories and songs unfold into hilarious rants on love and music, a riveting tale involving the dark side of show biz, and blazing guitar work leading up to the finale: a one-man acoustic rendition of “Devil Went Down to Georgia.”

Manon’s brother Lescaut is offering her to the highest bidder when she meets Des Grieux and falls in love. They elope to Paris, but when Monsieur G.M. offers Manon a life of luxury as his mistress she can’t resist. With the Lescauts’ encouragement Des Grieux cheats at cards in an attempt to win Monsieur G.M.’s fortune. They are caught. Manon is arrested as a prostitute and deported to New Orleans, followed by Des Grieux. On the run, Manon dies from exhaustion.

Kenneth MacMillan’s source for "Manon" was the 18th-century French novel already adapted for opera by Massenet and Puccini. The premiere was given on March 7, 1974, with the lead roles danced by Antoinette Sibley and Anthony Dowell. The ballet quickly became a staple of The Royal Ballet’s repertory, and a touchstone of adult, dramatic dance.

MacMillan found new sympathy with the capricious Manon and her struggle to escape poverty. Designs by his regular collaborator Nicholas Georgiadis reflect this, depicting a world of lavish splendor polluted by miserable destitution. MacMillan’s spectacular ensemble scenes for the whole Company create vivid, complex portraits of the distinct societies of Paris and New Orleans. But it is Manon and Des Grieux’s impassioned pas de deux — recalling the intensity of MacMillan’s earlier Romeo and Juliet — that drive this tragic story, and make Manon one of MacMillan’s most powerful dramas.

Pride Party: Film, Drag Show, DJ, and Dancing

The fun begins with the screening of the new film Saturday Church, followed by a drag show hosted by Chardonnay and a few of her friends, and finally a dance party with music by DJ Lotek.

Saturday Church is a musical film written and directed by Damon Cardasis. It tells the story of 14-year-old Ulysses, who finds himself simultaneously coping with the loss of his father and adjusting to his new responsibilities as the man of the house alongside his mother, younger brother, and conservative aunt. While growing into his new role, the shy and effeminate Ulysses is also dealing with questions about his gender identity. He finds an escape by creating a world of fantasy for himself, filled with glimpses of beauty, dance, and music. Saturday Church, released in January, received numerous awards at film festivals. It has a runtime of about 90 minutes.

The fun continues with a 60-minute drag show hosted by Chardonnay and a few of her Walla Walla friends. Chardonnay is a sassy drag queen with a big heart filled with love and laughs. She got her start here in Walla Walla in 2014 and is now the drag mother of the “Haus of Tannins.” Chardonnay is a frequent performer around the Pacific Northwest and in Walla Walla.

The party continues with dancing and music by DJ Lotek. All entertainment will be appropriate for ages 14 and up.
