Seven Ways To Get There by closes THIS WEEKEND!
“The writing is superb, probably Willis’ best play yet, and pacing, blocking and interaction of the seven men and one woman is like the smooth running of a complex machine – thanks in large part to excellent direction by Pug Bujeaud.
This play is a showcase of ensemble acting at its best. No one actor stands out, and each is in top form.” Alec Clayton, The Weekly Volcano.
Do not miss your chance to see this wonderful play featuring some of Olympia’s BEST.
Remaining performances: Thurs May 19, Fri May 20, Sat May 21 at 8pm
Words, Words, Words: An Aural Celebration Series:
THE ELIZABETHAN POETS
Some of the most sonorous verse ever composed in the English language, from poets such as Sir Edmund Spenser, Christopher Marlowe and of course The Bard himself. These are words that have been stirring love and passion for centuries, and continue to do so due to the profound resonance the poets felt with the human heart and soul.
Our readers so far:
Scott Douglas, Brian Hatcher, Em Donkin Jones, Maddox Pratt, Lynn Couch, Christine Goode, J Benway, Jamie Jenson, Heather Christopher…AND MORE TO COME!
Please join us to Enjoy the Words at The Midnight sun on May 27 & 28 at 7:30pm.
We look forward to seeing you there!
OPENING JUNE 10!
The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged)by The Reduced Shakespeare Co.
Excuse me, do you have a moment to talk about our lord and savior? From the people who wrote The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) comes an irreverent roller-coaster ride through “the greatest story ever accepted as fact.” The Bible, in its entirety, is condensed into 90 hilarious minutes. From fig leaves to final judgement, this breakneck comedy makes the good book better. Join us as we put the *fun* in fundamentalism!
Rebecca Rogers, Vanessa Postil, & Lauren O’Neill

Theater Artists Olympia (TAO) is a certified 501(c)3 non-profit organization who, for the last 14 years, has been committed to making accessible, underrepresented, and “untamed” theater for the Olympia and greater Thurston County community. TAO is operated and maintained solely by a volunteer Board of Directors and staff dedicated to the mission and vision to produce great theater. Two years ago, we inherited stewardship of The Midnight Sun Performance Space, an established institution in downtown Olympia and one of the only dedicated all-ages venues in the area.
Any donations made to TAO are tax-deductible.
