A smash musical, an all-time holiday favorite, and three exciting Black Box shows. The STAGE is rolling again — get on board!
Last season, Willamette STAGE Company made its first appearances at the Majestic Theatre in downtown Corvallis, with productions of Charles Dickens’ beloved classic, A Christmas Carol, and P.G. Wodehouse’s hilarious The Play’s the Thing.
For our 2011-2012 season, we returned to the Majestic for the first of our five shows, the smash-hit musical, I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, by Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts, featuring Harriet Nixon, Aubrey Peterson, Eric Hadley, Jonathan Pederson under the musical direction of Eric McKirdy. Photos of this show are here.
We continue in December with an adaptation of the perennial holiday favorite, It’s a Wonderful Life, staged as a radio play on the Mainstage at Corvallis High School. Watch our newsletter or this site for an announcement of the cast!
Our first STAGE Showcase event of the season, staged adaptation of Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw, will be performed in the Black Box over Thanksgiving weekend, Nov. 25-27. Don’t miss Willamette STAGE Artistic Director Robert Hirsh, Harriet Nixon, Barbara Berge and special guest artist Miles Fletcher in this limited-engagement production.
In April, we return to the CHS Black Box Theatre with Yasmina Reza’s Molière, Olivier, and Tony Award winner, God of Carnage., followed by Peter Sinn Nachtrieb’s quirky post-apocalyptic boom, opening May 18.
(Rescheduling of our production of Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, originally announced for February, will be announced soon.)
We’re also planning some very exciting STAGE Showcase events, which we’ll be announcing in the near future. Stay tuned!
