2024/25 Season

October 13 – November 10, 2024

Welcome to Cabbotville! Step right into this quaint Oregon town grappling with hard times since the logging mill closed. Enter Rudy, a queer kid whose disappearance leaves the whole town flummoxed. Did he run away? Perhaps he rode off on a magical ostrich? Or, could his disappearance be linked to something a little more out of this world–like a close encounter of the Third Kind? The Event! is a delightfully playful experience (maybe with a slight naughty twinkle) filled with surprising twists and turns. If you need a play that will be a sanctuary of laughter and optimism, this is the show for you!

February 23 – March 23, 2025

Elsa is a primatologist studying the language abilities of orangutans like Wookie, who she’s training to speak. More comfortable with her subjects than she is with most humans, Elsa’s world gets uncomfortably messy when her cousin’s child AJ, who is neurodiverse and often nonspeaking, starts an unlikely friendship with Wookie. Warm at heart, Sapience is an imaginative, theatrical exploration of different kinds of intelligence and the universal desire to be understood.

Experience the enchanting journey of The Storyteller, a captivating story that dives into the depths of imagination and the allure of storytelling. Seventeen year old Randi has lived her entire life secluded and off the grid with her dad on an old rotting houseboat, and like a typical teen, she’s sick of it. She’s ready to know her story and embarks on a journey of self discovery and freedom. Inspired by Shakespeare’s The Tempest, this spellbinding play unravels the magic and power of the tales we weave. Come immerse yourself in a world where reality and fantasy intertwine. Winner of the Oregon Book Award for drama, the International Thomas Wolfe Playwriting Competition, and a finalist for the O’Neill Center’s National Playwrights Conference.
