SPOKANE, Wash., Sept. 01, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RLHC (Red Lion Hotels Corporation) (NYSE:RLH), is embracing more than fall foliage this season with The Living Stage, the brand's community centric performance stage. Providing local performers an arena to showcase their creativity to local audiences and Hotel RL guests around the country, the Living Stage is devoted to community and innovation. Scheduled performances and open mic-style sessions provide a venue for people to share their creativity, innovation and to spread awareness about their passions.

"The Living Stage is not only a brand differentiator, but an industry game-changer," said President and CEO Greg Mount. "It is more than just a stage as it is meant to spark discussion, inspire people to engage and exchange ideas and bring together the thinkers and creatives alike."

The program features local artists from all walks of life, designed to benefit the community as well as hotel guests. Living Stage performances can already be seen live at Hotel RL Baltimore, Hotel RL Spokane and Hotel RL Olympia and will be an integral component of each Hotel RL property across the country. Guests can look forward to upcoming performances this month, such as:
  • September 1: Hotel RL Baltimore - 7 p.m. - Nathan Couser: TheArtistExchange Radio Show presents the "FireStarters Series," a collection of interviews that spotlight the artists, entrepreneurs, and community leaders from The DMV area.

  • September 7: Hotel RL Olympia - 7 p.m. - Rebecca Hom: Rebecca Hom never knew she would be a storyteller, but for 25 years the thread of story has connected her with people across the country and six continents.  She loves stories from all genres—folktales, Greek myths, legends and personal stories—and often mixes them together in a single telling.  From grade school assemblies of 600 to quiet campfires of six, rain forest to desert, Rebecca tells stories whenever the time is right.  Together teller and listener create a new, unique reality that is never the same twice.  Old stories, new stories, fib or fact, they are all part of the human experience.  And that is what Rebecca finds delightful.
  • September 24: Hotel RL Baltimore - 7 p.m. - Seema Reza and Amelia Bane: Seema Reza is the author of "When the World Breaks Open," a memoir of essays and poetry published by Red Hen Press.
