Shakespeare In Love @ Valley Center Stage (North Bend) (PWYC)
Feb 29 @ 7:30 pm

Penniless and indebted to two demanding producers, struggling young playwright William Shakespeare is tormented by writer’s block until he meets the beautiful Viola de Lesseps, daughter of a wealthy merchant, whose fiery passion for poetry and drama leaves her secretly longing to be an actor. Both are despondent when they learn that Viola’s father has promised her to the stuffy Lord Wessex in order to gain a title for their family. Under the veil of secrecy, Will and Viola’s passionate love affair becomes the basis of the very play he is writing – Romeo and Juliet. With opening night – and the wedding day – fast approaching, the plots race toward a parallel conclusion. Will it all work out in the end or are the two star-crossed lovers for tragedy?

In a post-apocalyptic world, environmental damage has turned air and light into poison. To appease the gods in keeping with ancestral traditions, regular “sacrifices” are made in the form of young villagers being thrown into a deep crater called the Sunless Scar, from which there is no escape. But instead of certain death, the Scar turns out to contain safety, community, and light in a way that the harsh surface never could. Should the denizens of the pit try to climb out and escape? And what exactly will they be escaping to? Join us for a thrilling speculative fiction adventure that explores how we honor ourselves and our past, and what we’re willing to risk for an uncertain future.

An unconventional satire of small-town life.

Anyone Can Whistle – Reboot Theatre Co. @ Theatre Off Jackson (Seattle – Int. Dist.)
Mar 16 @ 7:30 pm

This wacky, intelligent, highly unconventional musical points ahead to Stephen Sondheim’s groundbreaking work in the 1970s, even as it keeps a foot firmly rooted in musical theatre’s “golden age.” Anyone Can Whistle tells the story of a corrupt mayoress who fakes a miracle to revitalize her bankrupt town, and the ill-fated romance between the rational nurse, out to expose the fraud, and the easygoing doctor who is determined to enjoy the chaos that it brings. An unconventional satire of small-town life.

Music and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, book by Arthur Laurents. Directed by Jasmine Joshua, music directed by Kaelee Bolme, choreographed by Harry Turpin. Co-presented by Reboot Theatre Company and Theatre Off Jackson.

Tickets $6-$106 (sliding scale available for all) here.

 

Darby O’Gill and the Good People (staged reading) @ Valley Center Stage (North Bend)
Mar 16 @ 7:30 pm

This history sets forth the only true account of the adventures of a daring Tipperary man named Darby O’Gill among the Fairies of Sleive-na-mon. When O’Gill is imprisoned by the fairies of Sleive-na-mon in their home under the hollow mountain, he starts a lasting friendship with their King Brian Connors. In this series of tales of Darby and King Brian’s adventures, we follow Brian as his fairies are banished from Heaven for not taking sides as angels wage war against each other, and we follow Darby to face the Banshee in Croaghmah, the realm of ghosts and the final destination of the spectral death coach driven by its headless horseman.

Join Darby as he matches wits with the crafty Leprechaun, and join King Brian as he debates philosophy with parish priest Father Cassidy. Written by Herminie Templeton Kavanagh.

A staged reading means there is not a full set, but lights, sound and some costuming will be incorporated. Actors dramatically read from scripts to present the full story.
