Remember Rob Reiner’s classic fairy tale, “The Princess Bride?” You can watch it for free under the stars on Sunday on the lawn of St. John’s Cathedral. The event, called Bishop’s Lawn, begins at 7 p.m. with free hotdogs and beverages. The show starts at 8 p.m. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets.
Also on Sunday, “Experiencing God,” a musical by the Associational Choir, can be heard at Dishman Baptist Church. The community is invited to the performance, which begins at 6 p.m.
And, since we’re talking about entertainment, I may as well mention “Twelfth Night,” which isn’t hosted by a church but is still a good opportunity for some family fun. Hosted by Friends of Pavillion and Montana Shakespeare in the Parks, the play will be Saturday at 5:30 p.m. at Liberty Lake’s Pavillion Park.
William Brown, the director, explains the play this way, “Illyria is the foreign setting for Shakespeare's glorious comedy ‘Twelfth Night.’ It is a land in the grip of a kind of carnival madness where love is caught as quickly as the plague, identities are mistaken, songs are sung, liquor is drunk, duels are fought, and grown people make fools of themselves longing for what they cannot have. Join us in Illyria.”
It’s back to school time in Spokane and Gonzaga Prep has a new principal. Cindy Reopelle is the first female lay principal in the school’s 126-year history. You can bet we’ll be bugging her for a story soon.
Gonzaga Prep’s freshmen class, by the way, saw a 13 percent increase from last year. That brings total enrollment to 875 students.
Finally, a wildly popular story from SpokaneFAVS this week comes from Kyle A. Franklin, our newest contributor. He wrote, “Agnosticism vs. Apathy,” which is blazing its way across the Web at this very moment. Give it a read, we’d love to hear your thoughts.
