Racine & Me September 17, 2017: Tiny Homes Project, Racine Theater Guild's "Boeing Boeing", and B-boys at Party on the Pavement

Jacob Kittilstad welcomed a boost in viewers who are tuning in early before the NFL games on Sundays. He also welcomed Veterans Outreach of Wisconsin to the program to talk about the final piece of Operation Tiny Home. The host of Tiny House Nation, Zach Giffin, will be back in Racine in honor of the construction of the last home in the project. The goal of the housing is to help homeless veterans in the community - and a ribbon cutting is planned after the final tiny home is completed. Click here for more information


Next, the Racine Theater Guild joined Jacob to talk about the opening of the next show "Boeing Boeing". It's the first time the guild has put on the production and the creative director describes the comedy as a "sexual farce". According to the show's description, Bernard is a man with three fiancees - each is a stewardess for different airlines and they are blissfully unaware of each other. One evening, his careful juggling act gets away from him as all three women arrive in town simultaneously. Click here for more information

Two actors in the in the play - depicting the characters Bernard and Robert - also perform a brief scene from Boeing Boeing before answering some questions about their preparations. Click here for more information

Sweatshop Motion - a non-profit teaching hip hop dance styles in Racine - is a group that's helping coordinate this aspect of the event. In addition, B-boy Yasho Antipov held a special in-studio performance for the views of Racine & Me.
