The Harmony of the Gorge chorus presents its annual musical show, “Radio Daze,” on Saturday, Nov. 17, at Columbia Center for the Arts in Hood River. The comedy takes place on a day in the life of a rogue radio station as it might have been in 1947.
The Tualatin Valley Harmony Masters men’s chorus will also be featured on the show with their vaudeville act.
Attendees will become a “live studio audience,” cued for applause, laughter or boos. The audience can also join in a sing-along if they wish by trying to stump accordionist Carol Bales with a song she doesn’t know.
There will be a matinee at 2:30 p.m. and an evening show at 7 p.m. Tickets bought in advance are discounted by $2. Regular ticket prices are $10 adult, $8 senior and $8 children. Tickets are available at Klindt’s Booksellers in The Dalles, Waucoma Bookstore in Hood River and Postal Connection in White Salmon, or from any Harmony of the Gorge member.

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue
Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
