Sokolsky on the Arts and Entertainment
A weekly program focusing on the arts and entertainment
Arts and Entertainment Editor Bob Sokolsky pays tribute to Jane Margison, Marian Carter, Richard Stover,and Gary Scultz, four notable members of the Inland Empire's arts community who died this month within a few days of each other.
The quartet joins a list that includes Joan Wing, T.E. Foreman and Patrick Flynn, notable individuals who did so much for the regional arts.
It's difficult, he declares, to avoid using standard clichés when we think of them and their many contributions to the area cultural scene. "But in this case, those clichés fit."
Sokolsky says Jane Margison was in a class by herself with her work for the Riverside Community Players, the USO and the Mission Inn. Marian Carter made her portrayal of the ill-tempered Señora Moreno in “Ramona” her signature role.
Dick Stover left his stamp on Performance Riverside, the Big Band All Stars and just about everything associated with RCC. And Gary Schults possessed a treasure chest of theatrical knowledge he willingly shared with everyone.
All four, Sokolsky adds, were amazing, talented people, who will be missed.
