Until the Flood
ACT Theatre - Jun. 8 - Jul. 8, 2018

The latest work by award-winning playwright, performer and Pulitzer Prize finalist, Dael Orlandersmith focuses on the social unrest following the fatal police shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. This one-act, one-woman drama surrounds eight composite characters from the St. Louis region, examining the issues of race and social unrest from a variety of perspectives.

Hairspray
Village Thatre – July 6 – 29, 2018 (Everett)
"This all-new stage production will be bursting with Village Theatre’s unique flair, as Hairspray gives new meaning to BIG entertainment. Tracy Turnblad is a big girl with big hair and an even bigger dream: to dance her way onto national TV, dethrone the reigning teen queen, win the affections of the local heartthrob, and integrate a TV network... all without denting her 'do! The Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning Best Musical teaches us to look past skin color and size in the fight for equal rights."

Sweet Land
Taproot Theatre Company – Jul. 11 – Aug. 18, 2018
"In this sweeping musical that soars like the Minnesota skies, a young German woman crosses the sea to marry a man she’s never met. What should be their happy ending is met with suspicion and prejudice as friends and neighbors abandon them. But when hardship befalls the community, Inge and Olaf sacrifice everything to save their friends."

Lauren Weedman Doesn’t Live Here Anymore
ACT Theatre – Jul. 20 – Aug. 12, 2018

"With her hair bigger than ever, Lauren Weedman (and her alter ego Tami Lisa) and her fine band are ready to take you on a journey of heartbreak, laughter and fresh starts. “While the plot of the show centers on the issues of being betrayed and getting divorced, the themes are applicable to most anyone, for example, discovering who you really are, or finding yourself alone, or perhaps realizing that you're not who you thought you were. This universality is what makes Lauren Weedman's brand of comedy / performance so funny and so emotional. Whoever you are and whatever your life has been like, I'm betting you'll find something in this show that hits close to home.” – Broadway World

Skylight
ACT Theatre – Sep. 7 – 30, 2018

"A man and woman reunite after several years apart. Is the gap between them unbridgeable, or can they resurrect their relationship? An intensely clear-sighted, complex, and thought-provoking drama about power, politics, and a love affair."

Ken Ludwig’s Baskerville
Taproot Theatre Company – Sep. 12 – Oct. 13, 2018

"Sherlock Holmes is back and searching for clues to explain a mysterious death on a haunted moor. Five fearless actors conjure over 35 characters to deliver laughter and chills in this dizzyingly inventive adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles. Bite your nails and howl with delight as Holmes and Watson face their most diabolical case ever."

OSLO
ACT Theatre – Oct. 12 – Nov. 11, 2018

"OSLO tells the true—albeit little known—story of Norwegian diplomat Mona Juul and her husband, Terje Rød-Larsen, who together coordinated top-secret peace negotiations between Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and Palestine Liberation Organization Chairman Yasser Arafat in the early 1990s. Their efforts culminated in the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1993. A deeply personal story set against the background of a high stakes political thriller about the individuals behind world history and their all-too-human ambitions."
