Richard III by William Shakespeare

Event: 
Sun, 10/07/2012 - 2:00pm

Richard III by William Shakespeare.

State Theater (downtown Olympia).

October 4 to October 27.  8 pm Thursday to Saturday; 2 pm Sunday.

Directed by Scot Whitney.

Richard is charmingly ruthless as he carves his way to the top!

One of the most famous villains in theatrical history is brought to ruthless life in one of Shakespeare's most intense plays. With wit and guile, the deformed Richard murders his way through his own family to reach the throne, only to find he has yet further need for skullduggery.

Richard is cold and calculating, while others are angry, emotional, or simply silent in the face of his atrocities. He combines an oily charm, a deliciously pitch-black wit, and the skills of an accomplished actor to achieve his ravenous ends.

Contact the Box Office (360-786-0151) for tickets or information on special student matinees.

Hamlet at Priest Point Park!

Event: 
Thu, 07/19/2012 - 7:00pm - 10:00pm

Animal Fire Theatre is proud to announce that our 2012 Priest Point Park production will be Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Often cited as the most influential piece of literature in the English language, Hamlet is the crown jewel of the Shakespearian cannon. The story is both a revenge tragedy and an infinitely complex meditation on life, death, and humanity. We invite you to see the piece that people have been fascinated with over 400 years, as we present a fast, raw, and physically intense staging of the greatest play ever written, in the beautiful setting of Priest Point Park.  All performances will be free to the public.

Directed by Austen Anderson, performances are scheduled to run for three weekends. The dates are Thursdays through Sundays, July 19,20,21,22,26,27,28,29, and August 2,3,4, and 5. All performances will be at 7:00 P.M. The location will be the same as the last 2 years, across the parking lot from the Playground at Priest Point Park.

Animal Fire Theatre is a fierce, young company, developed by Austen Anderson, whose mission is the staging of classical texts in rough, energetic, and modern ways. Comprised of young passionate artists, Animal Fire Theatre explores the breadth of human instinct and impulses in order deeply explore self and character. To find these impulses AFT members employ a number of non-traditional rehearsal methods to heighten their physical and emotional awareness, including an exercise where each actor embodies, portrays, and interacts with the other actors as an animal in order to connect to their characters motivations. This wild method of rehearsal often draws curious park-goers to investigate the source of the strange growls, howls, barks, grunts, and roars emanating from our rehearsal meadow. Yet audience and actor agree, the process creates a powerful energy that makes each AFT production captivating and memorable.

EVENT TITLE: Theater Artists Olympia presents Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus

FINAL MATINEE - August 12, 2:30 PM

GROUP WEBSITE: www.olytheater.com

PRESS RELEASE: Theater Artists Olympia is at it again! Olympia's most adventurous theater company is tackling Shakespeare's most controversial play, Titus Andronicus. Steeped in blood, passion, revenge (and a big ol' bite of cannibalism), this is the stuff TAO is renowned for, and what it does best. Director pug Bujeaud prides herself on keeping her productions fast paced and vital for the contemporary audience. With that in mind Bujeaud turned to the Hells Angels motorcycle culture as an ultimate example of a modern tribal lifestyle in America. Set in the mid 1970s, at the end of a protracted turf war between the Romans and the Goths, Titus returns triumphant, prisoners in tow, and starts a chain reaction that brings destruction to himself, his family and all that he holds dear. Bold, bloody, and beautiful, Titus is a show that should not be missed.

Satanic Prayer Vigil for Westboro Baptist Church

Event: 
Tue, 12/06/2011 - 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Please join us in a Satanic Prayer Vigil for the Westboro Baptist Church at the State Capitol Building in Olympia.

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church will be visiting Washington State to protest Gay Marriage on June 6 and 7.  We believe that the best response to this is to pray to Satan for them, and to possibly try to lure them away from their hateful ways by offering them cookies.

We may also make another attempt to lure them to the Dark Side on June 7, when they picket the King County Administration building in seattle at 10:15am

For more information, please see our blog:
