Inspiration can strike from anywhere. Reading the obits one day, Kenneth Jones came across the story of Emily Wheelock Reed, a librarian who lived and worked in Alabama during the 1950's and 60's. Trouble began for her when she added illustrator Garth Williams' book The Rabbits' Wedding to her stacks, a book that portrays the marriage of a black rabbit and a white rabbit.

It was a busy week at the state capitol in Des Moines. Four hearings were held on issues including minimum wage and worker’s compensation, as well as a voter ID bill and a plan to do away with a local water authority in Des Moines.  Hundreds of constituents showed up the hearings, mostly to voice their opposition.

House File 516 would require Iowa voters to present ID’s at the polls. It would also change some of the voter registration requirements.

For their Projects of Hope, Lamb Arts Regional Theatre presents "Metamophoses," May 6. The play brings Ovid's tales to life, and this first night of its run will help to breath a little life into art as all proceeds benefit the Sioux City Art Center. Lamb's Russ Wooley and the Art Center's Erin Webber-Dreeszen joined SPM's Gretchen Gondek.

SPM’s Gretchen Gondek speaks with Diana Guhin Wooley about the world premiere of her musical “They Called Her Beautiful,” running November 20 through December 13 at Lamb Arts Regional Theatre.  The production is based loosely on Hans Christian Anderson’s story "The Little Match Girl."

Tonight Lamb Arts Regional Theatre presents the world premier of Stephen Dolginoff's musical Monster Makers. The work brings the audience to three eras of monster movies: the silent era, Hollywood's black-and-white frighteners, and the British Hammer horrors. SPM's Mark Munger went behind the curtain to see just how it was all brought to life... to life... to LIFE.

"Let's make a show." With those words, as if by magic, LAMB Arts Regional Theatre came to life 36 years ago. Along the way, Russell Wooley and Diane Guhin Wooley have formed a creative relationship with playwright Stephen Dolginoff, with whom they have worked closely in premiering two of his works: Flames and, this season, Monster Makers, which has its world premier this Friday at LAMB.
