Greetings from Keith Dixon, Artistic Director

After several months of planning, packing, moving and general anticipating, I’m happy to say that I’m now a resident of the great Inland Northwest and am getting acclimated to Spokane and more importantly Civic.  It’s great to be here.  I’m looking forward to the new season and bringing the best of community theatre to our region.

“Community.”  An interesting word, isn’t it?  It implies so much, but to me what stands out is the general sense of belonging – belonging to something that is greater than oneself, something that is greater than the sum of its parts.  That is what theatre is: a collective effort in storytelling.  We create from disparate parts a production that entertains and sometimes enlightens; and it is this group effort in which the magic of theatre truly occurs.

It is my hope that you take the opportunity to be a part of our community, as a volunteer, patron, donor or in whatever capacity you are able.  It’s because of you and others like you that Civic thrives.

If you’re looking for that opportunity, don’t miss out on our upcoming auditions: Fiddler on the Roof auditions begin Monday, so come join the fun.  Also, if you’d like to learn a new skill or brush up on some old ones, our Academy programs aren’t just for kids.  We offer classes and workshops for all ages.  Check out all the info here.  Either way, let us know how you’d like to play a part.

See you at the show!
