Why did Waubgeshig Rice throw in the towel at CBC Radio? When will John McHenry unlock the doors at Sudbury Theatre Centre? Did musician Matt Foy really compose an original piece with his young son, Ziggy? Is it any good?

STC proudly presents Arts at 9 on CKLU 96.7 FM Wednesdays at 9am beginning 30 SEP. Join host Judi Straughan as she digs into the Sudbury arts scene weekly. Music, theatre, visual art, writing, dance… the Nickel Capital is overflowing with creativity. Sudbury Theatre Centre’s Artistic Director John McHenry pulls back the curtain weekly with revelations that sometimes shock, sometimes amuse.

Early guests include dancer Denise Vitali, artist Ra’anaa Brown, theatre sensation Alessandro Costantini, historical fiction and Harlequin romance writer Rosanna Battigelli and sculptor Tyler Fauvelle. Hear each artist’s unique story, learn what they’re working on and find out what’s next.

Happily, even a few downtown businesses are hip-deep into the arts scene.

Beginning 30 SE, it’s Arts at 9 Wednesday mornings on CKLU 96.7 FM.  It’s better than water-cooler chit chat.
