Corinna, Corinna Gets Busy in Seattle

The life of Corinna Lapid-Munter, who’s the musical director and conductor for many of Ovation! Musical Theatre Bainbridge‘s productions (including the upcoming “Fiddler on the Roof“), just got a lot busier. And the business will involve a lot of ferry rides back and forth to Seattle.

Lapid-Munter just was cast in the 5th Avenue Theatre‘s upcoming production of “Candide,” according to a note on her Facebook page. And her Ovation! cohort Marijane Milton informs that Lapid-Munter will also be in Seattle Children’s Theatre‘s “Pero” this winter.

“Pero” plays Jan. 14 to Feb. 14, and “Candide” comes to the 5th Avenue for a May 25-to-June 13 run.

Double congrats to Corinna !!

Tavis Swims to Help Keep Ovation! in the Swim

Tavis Hamilton, a senior-to-be at Bainbridge High School and a frequent castmember in shows produced by Ovation! Musical Theater Bainbridge, is going the normal volunteer route one better.

On Aug. 15, Hamilton will swim from Alcatraz to San Francisco in the Shark Fest Swim, as a way to drum up donations he’s designated to help fund Ovation!’s upcoming productions (including “Fiddler on the Roof” in December).

“Your donation can be addressed to Ovation! MTB, 5967 Rose Loop NE, Bainbridge Island 98110, or by credit card at ovationmtb.com; click on “donate.”

Have fun, Tavis, and remember to swim fast … they don’t call it the Shark Fest for nothing.
