The works of Neil Simon, Steve Martin and more will make their mark in the coming year at Sequim’s Olympic Theatre Arts, 414 N. Sequim Ave.

Directors and actors made the announcement of eight productions for the 2014-2015 season with song and dance followed by a showing of the Tony Awards at the members-only event Sunday, June 8.

The Main Stage productions include “The Good Doctor” by Neil Simon and Anton Chekhov, which runs Sept. 5-21, and is directed by Karen Hogan; “Harvey” by Mary Chase (Nov. 7-23) directed by Olivia Shea; “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” a musical by Joe DiPietro and Jimmy Roberts, (Jan. 30-Feb. 15, 2015), directed by Pat Owens; “Steel Magnolias” by Robert Haring (April 3-19, 2015), directed by Larry Harwood; and “Picasso at the Lapin Agile” by Steve Martin (July 10-26, 2015), directed by Anna Andersen.

Heidi Hansen, chairman of the theater’s board, said she thinks they have an exciting group of plays for this upcoming season.

“Tom Darter, a member of our board, and his committee worked hard to find plays and playwrights that would have name recognition for our local audiences and which would meet the needs of our theater,” she said.

The theater also is incorporating its Second Stage productions into its regular season for the first time.

Those include “Holidays on Stage and Screen,” a musical revue on Dec. 12-14,  to be directed by Jaie Livingstone; “The Vagina Monologues” by Eve Ensler (Feb. 27-March 8, 2015), directed by Karen Hogan; and “The Birthday Party” by Harold Pinter (May 8-17, 2015), directed by Loren Johnson.

“With Second Stage, Olympic Theatre Arts is working toward offering a wider range of theater experiences at reduced prices,” Darter said. “Our coming season will feature a full roster of three Second Stage productions, in addition to our regular complement of five Main Stage productions.”

Season tickets are now on sale, with a variety of plans, prices and dates available. If ordered by July 10, purchasers will receive one bonus ticket and choice of seats in the theater for Main Stage productions for each ticket purchased. Second Stage productions utilize open seating. Tickets to individual shows will be offered after Aug. 1.

“Sherlock Holmes: The Final Adventure” runs July 11-27.
