HERE ON THE FLIGHT PATH
WRITTEN BY NORM FOSTER
DIRECTED BY WILMA KELLER
Hailed by critics as “a play to make spirits soar" (Hamilton Spectator) and “fall down funny, heart-tuggingly sad and wildly romantic” (Mississauga News), HERE ON THE FLIGHT PATH is a hilarious and heartfelt romantic comedy that follows John over the course of three and half years as he interacts with three neighbors from his apartment balcony: Faye, a practicing member of the world’s oldest profession; Angel, a somewhat naïve aspiring musical theatre performer; and Gwen, a recently divorced homemaker. Sex, love, life and loss are all discussed with big laughs and a few tears in what many describe as Norm Foster’s funniest play ever.
“Fasten your seatbelts and prepare for a lively trip. The laughs are nearly non-stop." Simcoe Reformer

DIRECTED BY CRAIG BRAUNER & ANGELINA ANELLO-DENNEE
Noted as one of Broadway’s most original musicals and the winner of five Tony Awards, FUN HOME is a groundbreaking story inspired by Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic memoir. Refreshingly honest and emotionally charged, you won’t want to miss the musical that The New York Times calls “extraordinary,” and “a rare beauty.” We are honored to partner with Little Town Productions and Musical Impressions Studios on bringing this piece to life.
In conjunction with performances of FUN HOME, we will be offering various programs and partnerships to bring awareness, voice and support to our LGBTQ2IA+ community as part of our Immersive Production programing. Additional details to be announced soon!

“Lauren Gunderson’s luminously beautiful play SILENT SKY is an intellectual epic told on an intimate scale. Bottom line: Heavenly.” — Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Full of wonder, humor, and heart, SILENT SKY is the remarkable true story of Henrietta Leavitt, a pioneering female astronomer in the early 1900s. A decade before women gained the right to vote, Leavitt and her team of female astronomers transformed the science of astronomy. This inspiring, music filled drama explores the determination, passion and sacrifice of the women who forever changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.
This production is part of the ETC Roadshow Program which sees our productions touring across multiple venues throughout Central Oregon.
CRAIG FOX HAD A WIFE
WRITTEN BY BEVERLY ALLEN
DIRECTED BY DEBBIE LEVIN
Craig Fox Had a Wife is an autobiographical new play by local playwright Beverly Allen. The play recounts the story of how a veteran, a widow and a Vietnamese tour guide found healing decades after the war.
Our production of Craig Fox Had a Wife will be part of our 2022 PTSD Awareness Project, a multi-faceted program intended to promote community understanding of the effects of war on military personnel, families, and communities.
The centerpiece and culmination of this project will be the presentation of Craig Fox Had a Wife on Veteran’s Day, November 11, 2022 and run for 8 performances.
Our hope is that through these and other community engagement activities around PTSD, we will not only drive attendance and participation but most importantly a deeper awareness and understanding of the effects of war and the many faces of PTSD.
CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION
WRITTEN BY ANNIE BAKER
DIRECTED BY CRAIG BRAUNER
September 2 - 18
Hailed by critics as “the kind of unheralded gem that sends people into the streets babbling and bright-eyed with the desire to spread the word”, CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION follows a group of five strangers who have enrolled in a six week “Intro to Acting” course at a local community center. As time passes, they gradually learn more than just acting... Through a series of touching and often comic exercises, they reveal their true selves through the work and to each other. Touching, heartfelt, humorous, and experimental, Annie Baker’s play is unlike anything you have seen or experienced before.
