Olympic Theatre Arts sets Talk Back night for ‘Death of a Salesman’

Olympic Theatre Arts is hosting a special “talk back” performance of “Death of a Salesman” on Thursday, March 14 with an early curtain time of 6:30 p.m.

As in past shows such as “Sylvia” and “Bakersfield Mist,” OTA officials say, this is a special chance to sit down with the actors and some of the production team to find out more about the show, or about live theatre in general.

Patrons who choose to participate are invited to stay after the show for usually about a half-hour to chat informally about the performance.

“This is what puts the word ‘community’ in community theatre,” OTA Executive Director Carol Willis said. “We have had really great responses to this addition to our programming and I have personally learned a great deal about what makes our actors tick.

“I have also been amazed about what they take-away from the experience. I think it is easy to overlook the fact that these performers ‘become’ the characters they are portraying. In the process, they learn in a very special way the message that the play brings to stage.”

The beverage bar remains open during the “talk back,” and complimentary snacks will also be served.

For more information or tickets for the performance, call the OTA business office at 360-683-7326 or visit www.olympictheatrearts.org.
