Mayor Mary Verner has declared March 11 as Julia Sweeney Day in Spokane.
Why? Because that’s the day that she’ll be at the Bing Crosby Theater performing her “Jill & Julia Show” with Jill Sobule.
The mayor’s proclamation mentions Sweeney’s “poignant, comedic and entertaining takes on everyday life” and her support of local causes, including the Inland Northwest Cancer Society, The Martin Woldson Theater at the Fox, Spokane Public Radio and KSPS-7. Sweeney is a former “Saturday Night Live” cast member from Spokane.
Tickets to the show are $27, available through TicketsWest outlets (800-325-SEAT, www.ticketswest.com)
