Save America

I read your paper because it’s free and I enjoy the ads. But I struggle through the left wing tripe that fills every page, from political cartoons to the vitriolic pen of Mr. Tuttle. What a shame this beautiful area of the state has such an abundance of Socialist/democrats. Or perhaps the silent majority chooses to stay silent...

Doom, Yet a Cup Half Full

In the news we are told of the civil unrest at Ferguson, Mo; ISIS war radicals in Iraq and Syria; the great corporate tax heist at home. You name it. Trouble, trouble, everywhere. It seems to me the U.S. Congress is partially to blame...

Uncomfortable Questions

defending the positions of the Israelis vs Hamas are far too narrow. Even Mr. Tuttle seems to have failed in looking deeply into the divide. American media is not biased against Israel, nor or are they pro Palestine or Hamas...

The Evolution of Man Revisited

As the expectations of manhood evolve, so too do the rules of love. In Mr. Holmes’s statement [from “Our Therapist Will See Us Now” in last week’s issue] he narrows the key to a successful relationship to the basic need to have your wants and needs understood, and it is on this point I expand...

Radio Redux: Sound of the 40‘s Lights up The Trillium

- March 10th, 2005
It‘s World War II and Big Band music is all the rage on the airwaves. Do you have any clue as to where you are?
Possibly at the Trillium Restaurant at the Grand Traverse Resort and Spa, which is hosting “The 1940’s Radio Hour,” a dinner theater musical set in a small New York City radio station way back when.
The show is the first production of the new theatre company, Theatre North TC. Co-founded by Mike Kelly, who serves as director of the show, and by WTCM’s John Dew, who is acting in the production, this is Theatre North TC’s first production.
The show centers around a group of nine performers and their attempts to make it to the “big time” during the backdrop of World War II. Diners become part of the show as they take on the role of a 1940’s radio station audience.
The production includes such greats as “Ain’t She Sweet,” “Blue Moon,” “Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Old Black Magic” and approximately 18 other numbers of the era.
Playing a supporting role with a delicious part is a four-course dinner with an entree choice of Ancho Grilled Top Sirloin of Beef, Grilled Chicken, or Soy Glazed Salmon.
You can see “The 1940’s Radio Hour” as a dinner-theater production from 7-9 p.m. every Friday and Saturday through April 9. Tickets for dinner and the musical are $35 per person for adults, $18 per person for children 12 and under, plus tax and gratuities. Reservations are recommended by calling 800-748-0303. Overnight accommodations in the Resort’s Hotel, Tower, or Condominiums are available.
