(Cue soap opera music here) The last time we checked in with Lori Kempton and Vicki Main of Twin Ports Stage, they had to cut the call short - they were in the middle of a meeting about trying to secure the Dunbar Building in downtown Superior for a multi-use arts facility (theatre, gallery, music venue, bar and cafe).  Join us now as we welcome Lori and Vicki for an update on that project, their radio soap opera and more!
