MOSES LAKE — Columbia Basin Allied Arts will celebrate a decade of dining and dancing to support the arts at the annual fundraising soirée, 6:30 p.m. Friday at the ATEC building on the Big Bend Community College campus. The soirée celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2019. “Red” is the theme.
Violinist Geoffrey Castle will perform live before dinner, and the classic rock and blues band Foolish Fortune will be playing dance music after dinner. The evening also features a live auction.
A private performance from Castle will be among the auction items for 2019, said CBAA director Shawn Cardwell. Other items include tickets to a Rolling Stones concert, tickets to a Washington State University football game and tickets to a Seattle Mariners game.
There’s also a helicopter tour of the Lower Coulee Corridor, “wine packages and nights on the town, both local and in Spokane,” Cardwell wrote. Early artwork by former Moses Lake artist Kim Matthews Wheaton also will be up for auction, as well as tickets to a Yakima Symphony concert.
Tickets are $75 per person, $500 per table, and are available at the CBAA website, www.cba-arts.org.
The allied arts season still has one Premiere show in the 2019 season, and one in its Green Turtle series for children.
The Missoula Children’s Theater will return for the second performance of the season next week. Auditions for the MCT production of “The Pied Piper” are set for Feb. 11. Rehearsals begin immediately after auditions and continue all week, with two performances Saturday.
The company brings two lead actors, the script, props and costumes, and casts 50 to 60 local children in the production.
The Rainbow Dance Theater will bring its “ILumiDance” performance to town March 1. The company mixes electro-luminescent wire, fiber optic fabric, black light and other optical special effects in its routines. The March 1 performance interprets the beginnings and evolution of life.
