The Spokane Civic Theatre might be precluded from its usual live on-stage performances and off-stage classes right now, but they’re not giving up their development of new talent, nor their ability to reach an audience. This Saturday is the first Civic Presents online original show, Young Artists Showcase. The Civic reached out to performers between the ages of 12 and 19 who have been in a previous show or class at the theater and asked them to contribute up to two minutes of a monologue or song “introduced or inspired by” something the kids experienced during the pandemic. The contributions have been edited together into a seamless showcase of the region’s young stage talent, and you can watch it for free Friday night at the Civic’s website.
