“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.”

Dates & Show Times:

Friday & Saturday, May 15-16 at 7:30 p.m.
Thursdays - Saturdays May 21*-23, and 28-30 at 7:30 p.m.
Sundays, May 17 & 24 at 2:00 p.m. 

Adults $22/ Student Reserved $11/ $5 Student Rush available at door only

San Juan Islands Museum of Art

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.

Opera’s most enduring tragic double bill returns in an evocative new production from Sir David McVicar, who sets the action across two time periods but in the same Sicilian village. 

Marcelo Álvarez rises to the challenge of playing the dual tenor roles of Turiddu in Cavalleria Rusticanaand Canio in Pagliacci

Rae Smith (War Horse) has designed the moodily atmospheric 1900 village square setting of Cavalleria, which transforms to a 1948 truck stop for the doomed vaudeville troupe of Pagliacci. 

Eva-Maria Westbroek (Cav) and Patricia Racette (Pag) sing the unlucky heroines, and Met Principal Conductor Fabio Luisi is on the podium.
