Spotlight On: Mock Turtle premieres 'Morningtime of Now'

Wednesday, May 21, 2014 by ELIZABETH OUELLETTE Special to The Press in Focus

Around 1906, an exceptionally smart little girl named Opal Whitely was living in the middle of Oregon in a lumber camp. She grew to love the animals and nature that were all around her and wrote about her days roaming the woods in her diary.

"The Morningtime of Now," a world premiere puppet play based on Opal Whitely's diaries, is being produced by Mock Turtle Marionette Theatre, 8 p.m. May 22 - 25 and 2 p.m. May 25, 26, Charles A. Brown IceHouse, 56 River St., Sand Island, Bethlehem

Cherry Poppin' Daddies a band of many music genres

Wednesday, May 21, 2014 by CAMILLE CAPRIGLIONE Special to The Press in Focus

The Cherry Poppin' Daddies was founded in Eugene, Ore., in 1989 by singer Steve Perry and bassist Dan Schmid. The group's music is a mix of swing and Ska, influenced by funk and punk rock, and noted for a prominent use of horns.

Their wildly successful 1997 single, "Zoot Suit Riot," on the album of the same name, showcased the band's ability to revive swing in the musical mainstream. They were referred to by the Phoenix New Times as the northwest's "alternative to alternative."
