“What a way to make a living!”

Our spring musical takes us back to 1979 and to the corporate workplace with Violet, Judy and Doralee as they live out their wildest fantasy: giving their boss the boot! Nominated for four Tony Awards and based on the 1980 movie of the same name, the comedy is full of hum-making music and plenty of laughs as the women turn the tables on their obnoxious and chauvinistic boss.

Director Margaret Hall says the play shows just how far women in the workplace have come since 1979. “Those of us who were working at that time, really did experience such circumstances,” said Margaret. “In a very humorous way, the story sends a message of the importance of taking control of your own life.”

Thursdays - Saturdays May 21*-23, and 28-30 at 7:30 p.m.

Cardboard Camp is an opportunity to explore corrugated cardboard at length. Students will learn about the many things we can do with this ordinary material by creating various projects such as self portraits and more. We’ll touch on some basic anatomy, color theory and perspective in this compact Cardboard Camp !

Brook lives on Orcas Island, where she continues her work in 3-D sculpture, paints and draws the beautiful local landscapes. Her drawings can be found at Crow Valley Pottery on Orcas. She teaches art workshops for children and adults at The Funhouse and at Orcas Art Studios.

Kids should wear clothing that can get a bit messy with glue, paint and oil pastels. All they need to bring is a snack (we take a snack break at the half way point) and a positive attitude !

Maximum number of participants: 12.  Registration deadline: May 16.

Extraordinarily sensitive woodcut impressions created by New Jersey artist Luigi Rist (1888-1959), using a refined Japanese style of printing, are generously presented from a private collection on San Juan Island. Challenged by fruit, vegetables and flowers as subject matter for these delicate images, Rist required seven to twenty-seven blocks to complete each piece. Numerous woodcuts by Luigi Rist were featured within or on the cover of the Christian Science Monitor.

Open 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Thursday through Monday.
