New lighting at Civic’s Main Stage Concessions!

We’ve been busy!

If you’ve attended a show at Spokane Civic Theatre this season, you’ve most likely noticed we’ve been busy making a variety of changes in our concessions area, from new LED lighting and paint to updated archive photos and seating areas.

What you may not have noticed are the new local food and beverage offerings in our concessions area!

Partnering Local

As a community theatre, we have the great opportunity to partner with and support various local businesses throughout Spokane and surrounding areas. Through these partnerships, we are able to feature incredible local bakeries, wineries, breweries and other food establishments at our productions.

If you haven’t been to our concessions counters lately, here are two new products and local businesses you should come see:

Local Spokane Brewery: No-Li

The Company: No-Li Brewhouse – Spokane, WA
The Products: “Rise and Grind” coffee ale and “Born and Raised” IPA

No-Li is synonymous with the Spokane area, and bringing on a couple of their beers resulted in one of the most positive vocal responses we’ve had in our concessions area.

No-Li is an internationally award-winning brewery headed by Brewmaster/co-owner Mark Irvin. No-Li prides itself in crafting Spokane-Style innovative beers made in Spokane, by Spokane residents, using ingredients sourced from within 300 miles of Spokane.

Look for more No-Li beers throughout the season!

Local bakery Deer Park Farmers Market!

The Company: Deer Park Farmers Market and Bakery – Deer Park, WA
The Products: Various baked goods, from huckleberry lemon bars to salted caramel stuffed brownie bites.

Located just north of Spokane, the Deer Park Farmers Market and Bakery truly embraces the spirit of local.

What drew us to the business is their exclusive use of simple, quality local ingredients, with a mission to support the many local farmers and food artisans in this area. We also love them because their products immediately transport you back to grandma’s kitchen.

Just ask our artistic director, Keith Dixon, about their caramel apple cheesecake bars – he ran off with the sample all to himself and refused to share! It was that good!

In addition to these two fantastic local businesses , we plan to feature many more local favorites throughout the rest of the season!
