“How do your butts feel in those new seats?” asked Tim Tamashiro as he walked onto the Anne Portnuff stage last Sunday.
Tamashiro ushered in the revamped Yorkton Regional High School theatre on Nov. 5 as he put on his “When You’re Smiling” show for a receptive audience.
Tamashiro spent the evening regaling the audience with stories about and songs made famous by Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, and Frank Sinatra. The crowd laughed and sang along with Tamashiro’s performance.
Tamashiro’s concert broke in the fully revitalized Anne Portnuff theatre. In the last two years, the space has received new carpeting, new sound systems, new lighting, new curtains, and, finally, new seats. The total project cost over $300,000.
