Olympic Theatre Arts’ 2019-20 season opens this September with a continued spirit of collaboration in the community.
This season features biting comedies taking a poke at “the system,” period dramas shedding delicate light on women’s roles in American history, a tongue-in-cheek look at rural America, an alternative tale of Christmas and more.
OTA has once again gathered community artists to collaborate with the theater. These have all created original artwork to go with a production of this promising new season. Their original artwork will be used as the centerpiece for each production’s visual marketing materials and will be raffled off during the run of the show to the benefit of the contributing artist.
The contributing artists are:
Suzan Noyes — Greater Tuna – October 4–13, 2019
Priscilla Patterson — Silent Sky – November 8–24, 2019
Gail McLain – Another Night Before Christmas – December 13–22, 2019
Debbie Harding – Quilters – February 21–March 8, 2020
Jim Bradrick – A Facility for Living – May 1–17, 2020 – June 19–28, 2020
David Willis – Let Me Down Easy – June 19–28, 2020
Sharman Owings – Miss Lillian, A Life of Some Significance – an OTA Special Event, January 18-19, 2020
OTA is also continuing its long standing community outreach campaign with other area nonprofits, having approached organizations such as the Sequim Food Bank, Story People of Clallam County, and the Sequim PC Users Group in the hopes that theatergoers might become more aware of the various needs of the community by having a presence at the theater.
“Season tickets are on sale now for this exciting new season during which OTA is celebrating its fortieth anniversary,” stated Carol Willis Executive Director. “We encourage our patrons to make live theatre a part of their lives by buying tickets now and also taking advantage of the discounted prices offered to season ticket subscribers.” Individual ticket sales will become available in early August. Memberships for the new season are also available, granting reduced ticket prices, voting privileges and member invites to special events.
