The Credeaux Canvas
by Keith Bunin

2nd draft (2)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 centuryCredeaux 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 CredeauxCanvas…and discover the naked truth.

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!

Starring:
Lauren O’ Neill, Rebecca Rogers, and Vanessa Postil

Directed by Mark Alford

An Improbable Peck of Plays 5

This year will mark the fifth annual incarnation of “An Improbable Peck of Plays” 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. 

Submit Scripts and/or Director Requests HERE
Submissions are due by August 10, 2016

AUDITIONS will be held in August or September 2016 – More information coming soon! 


… AND MORE TO COME!
