Bonners Ferry Summer Youth Theatre

BONNERS FERRY, Idaho. -  David Carpenter, who is the high school drama and choir teacher as well as the junior high choir teacher, has donated his time, the entire summer to putting on performances for our community. He works with kids from 4 years old up through high school doing all types of musicals and drama plays. His wife, Dawn Carpenter also donates her whole summer to doing the same. They have spent upwards of 12 hours per day getting ready for these shows, which are totally run by students whom he teaches. They are taught the technical side as well as the dramatical side of their performances. Tonight, Friday the 13th and Saturday the 14th are our last two performances of Back to the 80's which is a 3 hour production with totally awesome music and choreography. We are trying to encourage people from all over to come see our shows. The theatre survives on community support and we do fundraisers to raise money for the purchase of the lighting, microphones and whatever other needs that have to be fulfilled. This year our goal is to raise enough money to build a storage onto the back of the stage area for all the props and equipment. The theatre is not funded by the school district or anybody else, just the kindness of the community.
 
I believe that Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter should be honored for their dedication and education of our youth in this community. Not many people would spend their entire summer working with a bunch of kids. They have been doing this for the last 3 years and have put on many excellent shows for our community, including Aida, Pirates of Penzance, Peter Pan, Grease, 101 Dalmations, and others. It is truly amazing the quality of the performances these kids put out, you would think they were professionals by the time they are open to the public.

For more information contact Kathy Scott at 208-267-8285 or cell 208-290-8267. Or you may also contact the Carpenters', who would be overjoyed to share with you their experiences with our kids, at 208-946-3659. Mr. Carpenters email is davcarpy@yahoo.com.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - From the outside, the Repeat Boutique looks like a lot of other thrift shops in Spokane.  Inside, some might describe the stuff for sale as old, used, discarded garbage -- but store manager CJ Curtis sees its potential. And just like the goods in her shop, CJ is on her way to a new life, one far from the one she once lived.

    SPOKANE, Wash. - "He told me to pull over, and my jaw just dropped," a Spokane woman, who says a fake police officer tried to pull her over, doesn't want to be named. In fear, this could happen again. "It really scared me and kind of threw me off that night. I don't even want to drive by myself anymore," she said. She tells me that she was driving around North Spokane at night on her way home from work.
