The Two Gentlemen of Verona

Event: 
Thu, 07/24/2014 - 7:00pm - 9:15pm

This summer, Animal Fire Theatre presents William Shakespeare's THE TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA. Shakespeare fans know that this comedy of love and friendship lost and found again is a true time capsule of its age and of sixteenth century ideas about how love and relationships should work. Today, some of these ideas have been discarded and others have been allowed to change form and linger. Animal Fire chose this comedy as their followup to Hamlet and Julius Caesar because it engages with issues far more present our modern world with a joviality guaranteed to please. Staged with a sharp wit and packed to the brim with comic delights, the show features some of Olympia’s best talent, music and even “a bit with a dog”. 

The Two Gentlemen of Verona runs July 24 – August 10th. During the first weekend, you will find the show at Animal Fire's old home of Priest Point Park, July 24th – 26th at 7 pm and July 27th at 2 pm. The show goes on tour during its second weekend, with two 7 pm stops on July 31st and August 1st at the Tumwater Farmer's Market, at the southwest corner of Capitol Boulevard and Israel Road, plus a 2 pm matinee at the Griswold Building in downtown Olympia, 310 4th Ave E. The troupe returns to Priest Point Park for closing weekend, with 7 pm shows August 7th, and 8th and 2 pm matinees on August 9th and10th. All shows are free to the public and guests are encouraged to bring chairs, blankets.

Theater Artists Olympia presents: Chamber Music by Arthur Kopit in our NEW HOME THE MIDNIGHT SUN

Event: 
Fri, 04/25/2014 - 8:00pm - 9:00pm

Chamber Music by Arthur Kopit
directed by pug Bujeaud


Theater Artists Olympia is proud to present Arthur Kopit’s absurdist black comedy, Chamber Music. The year is 1939 as we join the Sixth Annual Meeting of the Duly-Elected Grievance and Someday Governing Committee of Wing Five, Women's Section; and there is much to discuss. Poor Amelia Earhart just wants to go home but has been captured and left to rot in the asylum with all the other members of the committee, who unlike Amelia (?) all suffer from delusions of grandeur believing they are famous women from across the centuries. Susan B. Anthony doesn't want to hear it, Joan of Arc's pants keep rusting, and Isabella of Spain just can't figure out what to do about Columbus. While these are all compelling issues, the important topic of discussion is what to do about the threat from the men's ward…



Theater Artists Olympia (TAO) began as a group of like-minded theater folk who simply wanted to create great art and work on shows they had a passion for. The first full production ever mounted was actually Chamber Music at the Mariah Art space in fall 2003. Up to this point it's been a gypsy life, performing in 10 different venues up and down I-5 from Centralia to Tacoma.The Midnight Sun, a historic and invaluable local resource for artists, is now going to be TAO's home. Re-staging Chamber Music, our first ever show, as the first show produced in our new space seemed fitting and great way to celebrate a whole new beginning.

WHERE: The Midnight Sun Performance Space N 113 Columbia St.
PRICE: $12
TICKETS: Available at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/633277, or at INFO: 360.259.2743 or online at www.olytheater.com
MATINEE: Sunday, April 27th - 2:00-3:00 PM
