Making ARt -- Michael Weaver's new Actors' Repertory Theatre of the Inland Northwest has established a home and announced a new season.

Most important, there will be a half-dozen more professional theatrical productions on the Spokane theater scene in 2004-05. Beginning late this summer, ARt will present five shows at Spokane Falls Community College. The shows, dates and descriptions: Alan Ayckbourn's How the Other Half Loves, Aug. 27-Sept. 12 (a sex farce with dual dinner parties); Claudia Shear's Dirty Blonde, Sept. 24-Oct. 10 (the life of Mae West); Tom Mula's Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol, Nov. 26-Dec. 12 (Scrooge's business partner's side of the story); a play to be determined, Jan. 14-30, 2005; and Noel Coward's Blithe Spirit, April 8-24 (a novelist's first wife shows up for dinner -- as a ghost).

SFCC's Spartan Theater has recently undergone nearly $150,000 in improvements to its lighting and sound systems, and the college offers acres of free parking. In cooperation with William Marlowe, director of theater at SFCC, a Young Artists in Training program will allow three college students an opportunity to work behind the scenes on ARt productions.

For season tickets, which begin at $55, visit www.actors or call 838-4013.

Head Case -- If you didn't get a chance to see Seattle artist Scott Fife's talk last week (he was here as part of EWU-SFCC-and-the-MAC's Visiting Artist Lecture series), fret not. He'll be back Tuesday, May 25, to take the place of scheduled artist Andrea Zittel, who had to cancel for health-related reasons. Fife -- whose edgy, iconic cardboard heads were profiled in last week's issue -- was happy to take her place. In addition to an upcoming show at the Tacoma Art Museum, Fife has exhibited with Ed and Nancy Keinholz at the Redmann Gallery in Berlin. Call the MAC at 456-3931 for more information.

Oops, We Did It Again -- A special section has yet to go by without a few mistakes, and our summer camp guide is no exception. Camp Sweyolakan's resident camp for kids in grades 1-12 runs from July 5 through Aug. 23, and the day camp (for grades 1-6) will run from June 14-Aug. 20. The dates for Holy Names Music Center's piano camp were wrong, as well. The camp will run from June 28-July 2. Holy Names will also hold a String Ensemble Camp from July 5-9. For all of her mistakes, we've rolled our calendar editor through poison oak. How's that for a summer camp-style punishment?
