Free USO-style Show at Lake Quinault Lodge May 18

Ray Puddicomb is a Seattle resident who served as a soldier on the German Front Line during the Rhineland Campaign of 1944. He has acted in dozens of plays at the Northwest Mountaineers-sponsored “Forest Theater,” playing Merlin, the Wizard of Oz, a gorilla, a tramp, a lifeguard, a knight and other diverse roles.

Hans Brehmer has been working with Blade for ten years and has performed for more than 25 years in the Pacific Northwest. A pianist, singer, songwriter, and arranger, he has also worked as an accompanist for the jazz vocal department at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle. Brehmer considers accompanying singers to be an art form with unique demands.

Sentimental Journey follows an open house at the Lake Quinault Museum, across the street from the lodge. The performance is sponsored by the Friends of the Amanda Park Timberland Library and the Lake Quinault Museum and Historical Society. Venue donated by the Lake Quinault Lodge.
