Admiral Adds Second ‘Bjorn Again’ Show

Bjorn Again … Again.

The Admiral Theatre, to no one’s surprise, has added a second show for the ABBA tribute “Bjorn Again: the ABBA Experience.”

The added show will be Thursday, April 29 at 7 p.m. The original show is April 30 at 8 p.m., with a dinner option (served at 6:30 p.m. with reservations). But tickets for the original must’ve been getting pretty scarce, hence the second show.

Let’s think about this for a second … Death Cab couldn’t get a second show at the Admiral, so this is pretty impressive …

Port Orchard Woman in Top 10 for Spot on ‘Survivor’

A note from our friend Amy Anderson, who we’ve been enjoying in shows at Western Washington Center for the Arts in Port Orchard:

My name is Amy Anderson and I have just been chosen from 2,100 applicants as one of the top 10 to win an audition for the TV show “SURVIVOR.”
I live in Kitsap County, and I would like to get the word out that I need votes to move on in the competition.
The link to vote is: <;vs=Default&amp;play=true&amp;section=videos>
I have also competed in the Port Orchard Idol (third place) at the Bayview Java Deli and have participated in community theater at WWCA — (“Fiddler on the Roof,” “Steel Magnolias,” “A Year with Frog and Toad” and coming soon in “Harvey” and “Guys and Dolls”).
Wouldn’t it be great to see a local person on “Survivor?”
