New musical comedy takes the stage at Ballard Performing Arts Center

While school may be out for the summer, student performers have been hard at work in preparation for a set of shows at the Ballard High School Performing Arts Center (1418 NW 65th St) over the next two weeks.

“Emerald City,” a new musical comedy written by Ingrham High School senior Travis Frank, along with book-writer and lyricist Nora Germani, follows the trials and travails of Jonathan Small, a newly-minted college graduate from North Dakota, who is presented with an opportunity to work at Microsoft in Seattle.

“Jonathan believes he will create a new, normal life for himself in Seattle, but of course, the Emerald City has never been quite normal,” reads a description on the production’s website.

The show features students from Ingraham, Holy Names, Ballard, and Roosevelt, among other local high schools.

With any opening night jitters now in the past after last night’s performance, the remaining shows are this Friday and Saturday, and next Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (July 25-27) at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 for students (those under the age of 21), and $20 for adults.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    Is this possible? I am following two Blogspot accounts using my Twitter account. But when I look at my Twitter news feed, I never see updates from either of these Blogspots (and they have been updated). Is there a setting I need to change, or is this not even possible to do?.

    Presumably the magazine doesn’t do deals with each source that it reproduces, so how does copyright law allow them to re-print editorial content that they don’t own without paying royalties?. . Also, can this law be applied internationally?.
