The Triad Theater is set to begin a new monthly program of on-stage interviews of prominent community members called “Who’s Who in the Nisqually Watershed: From Mountain to Sea.”

The first interview will be with Nisqually Indian Tribe Chairman Farron McCloud 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 26. Yelm Business Association Vice President and Fulbright Scholar Steve Craig will conduct the interview.

“It is most appropriate to begin with Mr. McCloud, since the Nisqually people were the first to make the Nisqually watershed their home,” Craig said. “And, there is so much happening with the Tribe these days, it is hard to keep up. It will be great to hear firsthand about the many happenings.”

The laid-back interviews will be similar to the style used by Charlie Rose, Craig said.

Monthly interviews will be divided into a winter/spring series, followed by a summer/fall series. Each month will feature a different person with a unique and interesting background, Triad Director Cameron Jayne said. This is an opportunity for the community to hear from the people in the community who are making a difference. At the end of the interview a Q&A session will be held.

Initial sponsors of the interview sessions are the Yelm Business Association, Keystone Masonry and Olympia Federal Savings. Admission is free but donations are appreciated.
