Seven Ways to Get There by Bryan Willis and Dwayne Clark
Directed by pug Bujeaud
Join the guys of an ongoing men’s support group and their female therapist as they work though their various, difficult, and often hilarious issues. Seven Ways to Get There is based on one man’s journey and gives us a look behind the door. Both joyful and tragic, this is a play that will surprise you with it’s laughter and move you with it’s honesty.
Need: 7 Men, ages 25 – 65
In 1906, a French painter named Jean-Paul Credeaux created a series of nudes, twelve remarkable works he traded away for the sum of his gambling debts. Six months later, he was dead, and for over a century Credeaux was obscure, forgotten. That’s about to change. In five years, Credeaux will be famous, and each of his nudes will be worth millions of dollars. If you knew that–and could paint a fake Credeaux that would fool even the wariest art buyer–would you do it? If you were asked to pose nude for it, could you? Beginning March 25, secrets will be told. Three young lives will be changed. Steal a glimpse of The Credeaux Canvas…and discover the naked truth.
Starring Mark Alford, Alayna Chamberland, Amanda Stevens, and Christopher Rocco
All performances at 8pm: March 25, 26, 31 (Pay-What-You-Can), April 1,2,3,7,8
CALLING ALL PLAYWRIGHTS!
This year will mark the fifth annual incarnation of An Improbable Peck of Plays, our annual One Act play Festival produced with the Northwest Playwright’s Alliance, and to mark the occasion we’d like to something special. This is an official open call to all local playwrights interested in submitting: we would love to curate a collection of shows specially written to commemorate our half-decade mark, but with an added twist to keep it fun: the number five must play some prominent role in the script.
Take that idea for what you will. Let your imagination run with it and see what sort of odd and fantastic creations you can bring to life with that thought in mind. We can’t wait to see your talents at work and to begin shaping the next celebration of Olympia’s own special brand of theatrical gifts.
We are collective of local artists committed to producing high quality theater. TAO’s focus is on producing more thematically provocative materials, and experimental interpretations of classics than generally found in the Olympia area. Our mission is to present creative theatrical pieces that are under-represented in the community.
