This year’s Peninsula College Find Your Voice Festival creative team has woven together monologues submitted for this year’s production to create a tapestry of revelation, tears and laughter.
Set at a wake in 1994 at a San Francisco North Beach bar, “I Never Told Anyone (But I’m Going to Tell You)” opens March 17 at Studio Bob in downtown Port Angeles.
Under the artistic direction of Dr. Lara Starcevich, drama department head, the PC Find Your Voice Festival has evolved into an event that gives current and former students, as well as community members, the opportunity to take the words of the writer from page to stage.
Out of the 42 submissions, the creative team narrowed the field to the 15 that will be performed at Studio Bob. The emphasis this year has been on collaboration among the writer, director and actor.
“I Never Told Anyone (But I’m Going to Tell You)” will be performed at Studio Bob, 118 ½ E. Front St., Fridays and Saturdays from March 15-April 1. A $5 preview will be performed on March 16. Regular $10 shows begin Friday, March 17; tickets will be available at the door.
The festival introduces another level of collaboration this year with the addition of live music. Sequim resident Tom Darter is providing improvised piano music behind the monologues. Darter, a composer, has played on Jerry Goldsmith film scores and arranged and adapted all the material on the Kronos Quartet albums Monk Suite and Music of Bill Evans.
