It takes a team of actors to bring War Horse to life

War Horse started as a children's novel, has since appeared on the silver screen and Broadway and is opening Tuesday night at the INB Performing Arts Center for a limited engagement.

The star of the show is Joey, a half draft half thoroughbred that comes to life on stage. The magic behind what these puppeteers do to accomplish that is something you just have to see to believe.

"War Horse is a story of friendship and love between a boy, Albert, and his horse Joey," actor Adam Cunningham said. "The horse is sent off to war and Albert heads off to war to bring him home."

To bring Joey to life on stage it takes three people to operate the puppet.

"It's a story about friendship and love and it takes an incredible amount, a large cast, twenty separate kinds of puppets in the show to bring this huge story to life," Cunningham said.

And the more you see the actors put �Joey through his paces on stage as a horse the less you see him as a puppet, due in no small part to the work of the actors behind the horse.

Demoted police employee files claims against city

Departmental reorganization, a demotion and a claim that he threatened to "go postal" has put Scott Stephens at odds with the Spokane Police Department, an organization he once ran as interim police chief.

These claims come from attorney Bob Dunn, who spoke with KXLY Tuesday to explain the circumstances surrounding his client being placed on administrative leave last December and the city's move to conduct an independent internal affairs investigation into Stephens.

Mayor David Condon, at an afternoon media briefing held after Dunn held several interviews with local media Tuesday morning, said the decision to bring in an outside party to investigate the Stephens matter was because the city wanted to have transparency and confidence in their review of the matter.
