According to critics, Gypsy, with music by Jule Styne and lyrics by Steven Sondheim, is considered to be the "greatest American musical" ever written in the history of musical theater. The stage play is based on memoirs of Gypsy Rose Lee and takes place when 1920´s vaudeville reigned. It follows the journey of the famous striptease artist and her mother who attempts to raise two daughters to become stage performers. The role of Rose has been made famous over the years by Broadway veterans Ethel Merman, Angela Landsbury, Bernadette Peters, and Bette Midler. Gypsy´s memorable songs include: "Together Wherever We Go," "Everything´s Coming Up Roses," and "Let Me Entertain You." The Civic Theatre´s performance of Gypsy is directed by Spokane´s own Troy Nickerson.

Spend a summer evening sipping champagne and mingling with other SpokAnimal supporters at the first annual SpokAnimal Wags to Riches Benefit Auction, July 18, on the beautiful campus of Mukogawa Fort Wright Institute next to Spokane Falls Community College. On a bluff overlooking the Spokane River, you will be treated to live music, passed appetizers, a selection of wonderful silent auction items, and the chance to try your luck at the Wall of Wine and 50/50 raffle beginning at 5pm. At 6:30pm, guests will sit down for an amazing four-course meal prepared by Sylvia Fountaine from Feast Catering featuring fresh summer ingredients, along with a selection of wine. Shortly before 7pm, a short video presentation will kick off the exciting live auction featuring Auctioneer Kip Toner where you will have the chance to raise your paddle for some outstanding trips, experience packages, and unique items- all to benefit SpokAnimal.
This year, the Wags to Riches auction was designed to bring in revenue mid-year as adoptions sometimes slow and families take their vacations. Projected to raise 10s of thousands of dollars for the shelter and clinic, we hope that this gala fundraiser becomes a mainstay in the SpokAnimal annual event lineup.
To add your name to the invitation list or to purchase a seat, please contact Shelley Sharp, director of development, at 534-8133, ext. 209. We are also looking for all kinds of items and services that could help us to raise money, as well as businesses to become Wags to Riches sponsors for a variety of benefits. If you would like the chance to participate in the bidding, but won't be able to attend, please call Executive Director Gail Mackie at extension 202 to make arrangements.
