A young princess named Show White finds herself in peril when her step-mother, the Queen, is told by her Magic Mirror that the princess is fairer than she! Aided by her two Henchmen and a band of evil Bats, the Queen plots to get rid of Snow White.

Snow White escapes from the Queen and from the Black Forest Creatures with help from Witless the Woodsman, and finds a home with the Seven Dwarfs. When the Queen learns of Snow White’s whereabouts, she attempts to poison Snow White. But, the Queen’s evil plans are thwarted when Snow White’s fearless Forest Friends, her father King Backwards, the Seven Dwarfs and the Prince come to her rescue.

Wednesday, July 17 | VIREO: The Spiritual Biography of a Witch’s Accuser

The LCCC is proud to present a screening of the ground-breaking “Vireo”, an episodic made-for-the-screen opera composed by Lisa Bielawa on a libretto by Erik Ehn and directed by Charles Otte. This screening will also feature a discussion and Q & A with the composer, coming to Oregon just for this event.

The eponymous heroine Vireo, played by soprano Rowen Sabala, is a fourteen-year-old girl genius entangled in the historic obsession with female visionaries, as witch-hunters, early psychiatrists, and modern artists have defined them. Based on Bielawa’s own research at Yale, then freely adapted and re-imagined by librettist Ehn, Vireo is a composite history of the way in which teenage-girl visionaries’ writings and rantings have been manipulated, incorporated and interpreted by the communities of men surrounding them throughout history. From the European Dark Ages, to Salem, Massachusetts, all the way to 19th century France and contemporary performance art, Vireo provides a thoughtful, sometimes-humorous look at the universal issues of gender identity, perception, and reality.

This special event will begin at 6 pm, with a break at 8 pm. Dinner orders will be available, and there will be beer and wine for sale. To learn more about the creative team and this innovative approach to operatic storytelling, head to www.operavireo.org.

Friday, July 19 | Sourdough Slim

“There’s no one else out there like Sourdough Slim. An accordion playing, yodeling, tongue-in-cheek, cowboy-dressed entertainer deluxe. Catchy, uplifting, irresistible, jolly fun,” says Darrell Arnold of Cowboy Magazine. Sourdough Slim, aka Rick Crowder, will transport you to a whimsical world where vaudevillian camp and cowboy lore intermingle to produce grins galore.

Show starts at 7 pm. Tickets are $18 for adults, $16 for seniors, and $12 for youth.

Wednesday, July 24 | In Concert: Men of Worth

Back for a fifth concert at the LCCC, Men of Worth is one of our Celtic favorites. Donnie Macdonald comes from the Isle of Lewis, one of the Hebridean Islands off the west coast of Scotland. Writing tunes and original songs in both his first language Gaelic and in English, Donnie presents the music from his native Scotland with passion and humor. James Keigher was born in CountyMayo, in the west of Ireland, and he’s a singer, writer and collector of folk music. Between them, they play eight traditional Celtic instruments, from the mandolin to the bodhran. With a simple presentation and a wealth of stories, Men of Worth will leave you smiling.
