OTA offers ‘Tale Spinners’ on Oct. 30

Olympic Theatre Arts Center seeks to give to the community a comfortable, safe storytelling evening for grown-ups with “Tale Spinners” — a new, monthly event that debuts at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 30, the day before Halloween.

Storytellers and listeners will meet in the Gathering Hall, a newly revamped and cozy space for intimate events. OTA invites the public to come share and hear “Scary Stories,” the first theme of the series.

Costumes are encouraged to get into the Halloween spirit.

Hosted by Star Pittman, the event features seasoned local storytellers as well as “walk-in” storytellers from the public. OTA invites everyone to come hone their ability to recount fun events from their lives.

“I believe that each of us has a story to tell,” Pittman said.

“I recently moved to Sequim and love to walk the beaches and trails. I am amazed by the conversations I have with random strangers who have the most interesting tales to tell.

”My desire is to have a safe, comfortable place to share little pieces of our lives.”

Refreshments will be available. Tickets are $10 online at or at the door. All proceeds go to fund OTA’s “Deck the Walls” exterior embellishment project to restore the exterior of the theatre’s historic building.

Proof of vaccine or negative PRC lab test less than 72 hours old is required for admittance to the theatre; face masks are mandatory.

For more information, visit or call the box office at 360-683-7326 between 1-4 p.m., Tuesday-Friday.

Right: Pieces of Civil War veteran Moore Waldron’s headstone can be seen in the right-hand corner of this photograph. Historical preservationist Mick Hersey, left, and the Taylor family of Gig Harbor returned the pieces to the Pioneer Memorial Park of Sequim for their friends the Englands (Moore’s descendants). The Englands read in the Sequim Gazette about the Sequim Garden Club’s preservation efforts at the park and decided to return these pieces for restoration. Moore now will have two markers in the park, as the Veteran’s Administration commissioned a new stone for Waldron in 2017 — an article about which can also be found on the Sequim Gazettte’s website. Moore moved to Sequim with his family in 1905 and died in 1908. Moore had five children and has descendants in Sequim and Pierce County as well as other places. Moore’s great-grandson is the founder of the Waldron Endoscopy Center in Tacoma, according to Cheryl England. Sequim Gazette photo by Emily Matthiessen
