WTIP received tremendous support during our “All Welcome” Membership Drive. In four and a half days, we welcomed 56 new members and 215 renewing members. Altogether, we received 271 pledges of support and raised a total of $22,921!
Thank you to each of our members ~ your support strengthens our services and makes WTIP possible.
Thanks also to all our wonderful volunteers, both on and off the air, everyone who brought in food, and the talented musicians who performed live in our studios. Thanks also to Karie Wrich, who designed the artwork. It was a community effort, and many people came together to make our “All Welcome” Membership Drive a success ~ thank you!
The Grand Marais Playhouse is excited to announce its latest youth and community collaboration—Captain Louie, Jr. The play is based on the popular picture book The Trip by Ezra Jack Keats. There is delightful music by Stephen Schwartz and it spins the tale of young Louie, the “new kid” in town.
Feeling lonely and friendless after his family moves to a new neighborhood, Louie looks for something to cheer himself up on Halloween. He takes an imaginary journey to visit his old neighborhood friends on the wings of his favorite toy, his little red plane.
