In Dacha Theatre's new devised play An Awfully Big Adventure, a small Fremont park is transformed into the world of Peter Pan. Come embark on an adventure of your own as you explore the unpredictable Never Land, where you may be pranked by faeries, befriended by the mysterious park volunteers, or even captured by the dastardly Captain Hook.
In Caridad Svich's play with songs TWELVE OPHELIAS, Shakespeare's Ophelia rises up out of the water dreaming of Pop-Tarts and other sweet things.

In this mirrored world of word-scraps and cold sex, Ophelia cuts a new path for herself.

In a world… specifically in a serene town on the Oregon coast, a formerly famous Hollywood actress, Claire Zimmer, returns home for personal reasons, and agrees to star in the Prospect Cove Summer Theatre’s production of Noel Coward’s Private Lives. Not everyone is delighted with this turn of events including the longtime local ‘star’ Leo Laraquette who will be playing Claire’s leading man. Chaos ensues when Hollywood and community theatre egos clash in this farcical tale of coming home and starting again.
February 17th and 18th, 8pm @ the Ballard Underground, tickets can be bought here.
Everyone knows the story of Icarus, the boy who flew too close to the sun, but that is only a tiny snippet of what actually happened. In this magical adaptation, the story revolves around the father, Daedalus, and his mistakes that led to the birth of the young Minotaur, to his son’s tragic death, to the suicide of the king’s daughter. His choices affected everyone around him like a rippling tide that only ends in destruction. As all the characters fight to avoid their fate, one question permeates throughout. Can people really change or all endings sketched in stone? Written by Kendall Uyeji, directed by Michael Schwartz.

Come adventure on an island alive with magic, revenge and finally forgiveness. The Tempest by William Shakespeare is known as his most entertaining and poignant play; a romantic comedy and the last play he wrote. The civilized find themselves confronting their own wickedness on an island where forces of nature, power and mystery conspire and unite to reveal the deepest truths.
A punishing storm at sea begins this tale about the outcome of betrayal, when an exiled duke uses dark powers to wreck the ship on which sails with the King and those betrayers. Not a soul perishes, and instead a romance is born between the royal magician's daughter and the Kings son.
But there are more plots afoot: drunken butlers, a spiteful island monster and supernatural creatures to carry out the twists and turns that carry us through this magical world to the sweet surrender found in the truest love at the end.
Come Celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Lee Center and see Shakespeares gorgeous play. THE TEMPEST will also tour to the Merc Theatre in Twisp, WA.
