It has been a long two years’ wait for those of us who enjoy visiting the community theaters in the area. Many of the actors and staff with a few exceptions are unpaid volunteers whose dedication to their craft never ceases to impress me. The hours of preparation are obvious in the professionalism of the productions. If like me, you haven’t been able to experience locally performed little theater recently, here is an idea of what is going on:
Port Gamble Theater
Port Gamble Theater will be performing Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella from Friday, December 2 until Sunday, December 18 at their historic theater located across from the General Store. As a special treat they will serve a delectable dessert after the show on Saturday, December 17.
The Jewel Box Theater
The Jewel Box Theater in Poulsbo always puts on an excellent show. Miss Bennet: Christmas at Pemberley is a sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice and will be performed on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, December 2, 3, and 4.
Key City Public Theater
Key City Public Theater in Port Townsend will be introducing us to a World Premier when New Moon plays from Thursday, December 1 until Friday, December 23. And they will even manage a production of The Christmas Carol on Tuesday and Wednesday, December 20 and 21.
Olympic Theater Arts
Finally, Olympic Theater Arts in Sequim will offer The Best Christmas Pageant Ever from Thursday, December 1 – Sunday, December 18.
