PC puts on ‘Panic! At the Chalet’ for Find Your Voice Play Festival

This year’s Find Your Voice Play Festival, running March 13-16, features an original play written, directed, designed, managed and performed by Peninsula College students.

“Panic! At the Chalet,” began as a series of one acts written by individual students. The scenes were then moved through a collaborative revising process until the script came out fully developed and ready to be performed.

Three separate classes — Acting, Playwriting and Directing — meet each week at the same time to coordinate, create and orchestrate the mainstage show every quarter at Peninsula College.

Though the action in “Panic! At the Chalet” takes place at the Enchanted Valley Chalet in the Olympic National Park, the play will be performed at Peninsula College.

Show dates are March 13 at 7:30 p.m., March 14 at noon, March 15 at 7:30 p.m. and March 16 at noon, at the Little Theatre on the Peninsula College main campus, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd., Port Angeles.

The plot of this year’s show revolves around Mills, a young playwright who is holed up at the Chalet so that he can feverishly write a script in time for his publisher’s deadline. He struggles to write against a series of unexpected distractions and psychological malignancies that both inspire and derail him by turns.

From a Queen named Lana who is assured that her name will never be reversed, to a scene where two strangers blur the line between victim/victimizer, and a black comedy in which an innocent enough family dabbles with eating their own (fill-in-the-blank) to survive a long, harsh winter.

Because of the occasional graphic and mature subject matter — counterbalanced by plenty of comedic moments — this show is not suitable for children.

Tickets can be purchased at the door: $10 general admission, $5 for seniors and free to PC students and alumni.
