San Juan Community Theatre

San Juan Island’s community chorus celebrates America in all her glorious music with a concert full of all-American songs about our homes, our lives, our neighbors, our work and our play. (With one notable exception which you will simply have to come hear it to know about it!)

From the grand music of Aaron Copland's Tender Land to the simple strains of America the Beautiful, the rugged beauty and the boisterous energy that underlies our American culture is captured in our music. Drawing on music written by Copland, Leonard Bernstein, Scott Joplin, and Paul Simon, to name a few, this program is full of lively tunes and beautiful melodies.    

Show Times:  Saturday, April 11 at 7:30 p.m.  and Sunday, April 12 at 5:00 p.m.

San Juan Community Theatre

The Grim Reaper meets his match in Mrs. Fischer, a stubborn senior whose will to live is a force to be reckoned with….

Equal parts hilarious and touching, this award-winning physical comedy by the mask imagineers of the WONDERHEADS is the story of a tenacious granny who comes face to face with the Grim Reaper himself and must put up the fight of her life to escape his definitive grip.

Grim and Fischer is one of three main-stage productions from the multi-award winning Portland physical theater company that has been touring throughout North America since 2009. Specializing in mask performance and visual storytelling for adults and children, their work is presented in full-face mask, whimsical and wordless—described by audiences as watching a living cartoon, or live-action Pixar.

Grim and Fischer is recommended for ages 10 – adult.
