Local musicians and beloved community members Jim and Betty Lightner will host an evening of music—new, original, old standards and even sing-along songs—performed by a stellar lineup of local musicians at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 15  in the Whidbey Children’s Theater auditorium.

The event, “Summer Strike!” is a benefit concert and wrap party for the 2014-2015 Whidbey Children’s Theater season. In theater terms, to “strike the show” is to disassemble the entirety of the set, return all equipment to storage and leave the venue as it was before the show was set up.

Tickets are available at the door for $5 (Youth) and $10 (Adults).

The lineup features local artists such as: Harbor Lights (Jim & Betty Lightner), The Shifty Sailors, Karl Olsen (The Brothers Four), Kaj Lund-Olsen, Steve Showell and JoAnne Rause, Andy Walker, Richards Sisters (Renee and Reed Richards), June Shellene and Arne Bergstrom.

“Summer Strike!” is a benefit concert for Whidbey Children’s Theater, a 501(c)3 non-profit arts organization. Whidbey Children’s Theater has provided training for youth in performing arts for over 30 years. Learn more about the magic and how to be a part of it at: www.wctmagic.org.
