The Niceties @ Lakewood Playhouse (Lakewood)
May 31 @ 7:30 pm

At an elite East Coast university, an ambitious young Black student and her esteemed White professor meet to discuss a paper the college junior is writing about the American Revolution. They’re both liberal. They’re both women. They’re both brilliant. But very quickly, discussions of grammar and Google turn to race and reputation, and before they know it, they’re in dangerous territory neither of them had foreseen — and facing stunning implications that can’t be undone. A compelling depiction of racial and generational divides as it asks who gets to tell the story of America, and how.

Written by Eleanor Burgess; directed by Michelle Matlock.

Fairview @ University of Puget Sound (Tacoma)
Jun 7 @ 7:30 pm

The Department of Theatre Arts is excited to be partnering with Tacoma’s empathos theatre company to produce Jackie Sibblies Drury’s Pulitzer Prize-winning work. Fairview, a challenging play about contemporary Black experience, will be directed by empathos Artistic Director Chevi Chung, with a cast and design team drawn from local theatre professionals and students.

Fairview inventively presents the dilemmas of race, perception, and representation, as one family’s birthday celebration for their matriarch becomes the occasion for appropriation by characters who want the satisfaction of stereotypes. The violence at the heart of racialized imaginations emerges in theatrical ways. How do the things we watch on television and movies make us think we know about marginalization and identity? Who is playing what roles? Who is watching and being watched? What happens when we change our vantage point?

Location: Norton Clapp Theatre in Jones Hall (UPS campus)

Jun 8 @ 7:30 pm

The Addams Family, a comical feast that embraces the wackiness in every family, features an original story and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family, a man her parents have never met, and begs her father not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before: keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s “normal” boyfriend and his parents.

The Niceties @ Lakewood Playhouse (Lakewood)
Jun 8 @ 7:30 pm

At an elite East Coast university, an ambitious young Black student and her esteemed White professor meet to discuss a paper the college junior is writing about the American Revolution. They’re both liberal. They’re both women. They’re both brilliant. But very quickly, discussions of grammar and Google turn to race and reputation, and before they know it, they’re in dangerous territory neither of them had foreseen — and facing stunning implications that can’t be undone. A compelling depiction of racial and generational divides as it asks who gets to tell the story of America, and how.

Written by Eleanor Burgess; directed by Michelle Matlock.

The Prom @ Tacoma Musical Playhouse (Tacoma)
Jun 9 @ 2:00 pm

Four eccentric Broadway stars are in desperate need of a new stage. So when they hear that trouble is brewing around a small-town prom, they know that it’s time to put a spotlight on the issue … and themselves. The town’s parents want to keep the high school dance on the straight and narrow, but when one student just wants to bring her girlfriend to prom, the entire town has a date with destiny. On a mission to transform lives, Broadway’s brassiest join forces with a courageous girl and the town’s citizens, and the result is love that brings them all together. The Prom captures all the humor and heart of a classic musical comedy with a message that resonates with audiences now more than ever. Book and lyrics by Chad Beguelin, book by Bob Martin, music by Matthew Sklar.

Tickets ($35) here.

 

Fairview @ University of Puget Sound (Tacoma)
Jun 9 @ 2:30 pm

The Department of Theatre Arts is excited to be partnering with Tacoma’s empathos theatre company to produce Jackie Sibblies Drury’s Pulitzer Prize-winning work. Fairview, a challenging play about contemporary Black experience, will be directed by empathos Artistic Director Chevi Chung, with a cast and design team drawn from local theatre professionals and students.

Fairview inventively presents the dilemmas of race, perception, and representation, as one family’s birthday celebration for their matriarch becomes the occasion for appropriation by characters who want the satisfaction of stereotypes. The violence at the heart of racialized imaginations emerges in theatrical ways. How do the things we watch on television and movies make us think we know about marginalization and identity? Who is playing what roles? Who is watching and being watched? What happens when we change our vantage point?

Location: Norton Clapp Theatre in Jones Hall (UPS campus)
