In brief: Whitworth presents ‘Wizdom’ at the Bing

 

SPOKANE – Whitworth University will present “Wizdom: Making Dollars and Sense” at 7 p.m. on May 6 at the Bing Crosby Theater in downtown Spokane.

The script is based on stories students heard in workshops from people who have faced poverty. The hour-long performance will be followed by a discussion with the actors and with director Brooke Kiener. Admission is free. For more information, call (509) 777-3707.
