Clackamas Rep announces 2017 season
During its upcoming performace season, Clackamas Repertory Theatre will perform "Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery," "The Melody Lingers On," and "Tigers Be Still."
Ken Ludwig's "Baskerville: A Sherlock Holmes Mystery" will run from June 30 through July 23 and is a comedic take on Sherlock Holmes and John Watson's famous case about a family curse.
Irving Berlin's "The Melody Lingers on" will run through Aug. 4-27 and iss a "sweet, romantic, semiautobiographical musical" details how Berlin composed music" with a limited formal and musical education, and an inability to write in any key except F# without the aid of a transposing piano." Kim Rosenstock's "Tigers Be Still" runs Sept. 8 through Oct. 1 and focuses on a recent graduate with an art therapy degree who "retreats to her childhood bed and remains there until an unexpected employment opportunity gives her a renewed sense of purpose and hope."
"Clackamas Rep's new season has something for everyone: A comedic mystery full of unexpected plot twists, a rollicking musical packed with familiar tunes and an offbeat comedy from an up-and-coming playwright," artistic director David Smith-English said.
To allow the audience to better understand the shows, the theater will continue its tradition of post-show opening night receptions and post-show actor/director discussions. These opportunities allow theatergoers to talk to actors, artistic staff and directors.
All shows will take place at 7:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 2:30 p.m. Sundays at the Osterman Theatre on the Clackamas Community College, 19600 Molalla Ave, Oregon City. To purchase tickets, visit www.clackamasrep.org or call 503-594-6047.
