Remember Bush-Cheney Does anyone remember George W. Bush and Dick Cheney? They were president and vice president a mere eight years ago. Does anyone out there remember the way things were at the end of their duo? It was terrible...

Mass Shootings And Gun Control The largest mass shooting in U.S. history occurred December 29,1890, when 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee in South Dakota were murdered by federal agents and members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms “for their own safety and protection.” The slaughter began after the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms...

Families Need Representation When one party dominates the Michigan administration and legislature, half of Michigan families are not represented on the important issues that face our state. When a policy affects the non-voting K-12 students, they too are left out, especially when it comes to graduation requirements...

Raise The Minimum Wage I wanted to offer a different perspective on the issue of raising the minimum wage. The argument that raising the minimum wage will result in job loss is a bogus scare tactic. The need for labor will not change, just the cost of it, which will be passed on to the consumer, as it always has...

Make Cherryland Respect Renewable Cherryland Electric is about to change their net metering policy. In a nutshell, they want to buy the electricity from those of us who produce clean renewable electric at a rate far below the rate they buy electricity from other sources. They believe very few people have an interest in renewable energy...

Settled Science Climate change science is based on the accumulated evidence gained from studying the greenhouse effect for 200 years. The greenhouse effect keeps our planet 50 degrees warmer due to heat-trapping gases in our atmosphere. Basic principles of physics and chemistry dictate that Earth will warm as concentrations of greenhouse gases increase...

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.
