Winter Quarter Play
Our Winter Play, which will go up in mid-January 2016, will be the raucous mystery-comedy, But Why Bump off Barnaby by Rick Abbott.
This lunatic show poses a fascinating mystery. When Barnaby Folcey is murdered at a family gathering at Marlgate Manor, it transpires that he had a motive to murder everybody else but no one had a reason to want him dead. (from Samuel French’s website)
Performance Dates: January 14th, 15th, and 16th, 2015, at 7:00

Spring Quarter Musical
Our Spring Musical, which will go up in late April, will be the hilarious, yet touching, 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, with music and lyrics by William Finn and book by Rachel Sheinkin.
Winner of the Tony and the Drama Desk Awards for Best Book, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee has charmed audiences across the country with its effortless wit and humor. Featuring a fast-paced wildly funny and touching book by Rachel Sheinkin and a truly fresh and vibrant score by William Finn, this bee is one unforgettable experience. An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home life, the tweens spell their way through a series of [potentially made-up] words hoping to never hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming “ding” of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. (from MTI’s website)
Performance Dates: April 28th, 29th, and 30th; Thursday, Friday, and Saturday
Performance Location: Recital Hall, COM Building, The Evergreen State College
All performances will begin at 7 pm.
