“Into the Woods” by CHS Theater is the blending of several fairy tales into one story. The Baker and his Wife, Jack and the Beanstalk, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood and others are all on their quests to see their greatest wishes granted.

Along the way, they cross paths with often hilarious results. In the end, all is mended, but the journey becomes quite a bit more complicated than anyone ever dreamed. With giants, witches, wolves, princes, and magic beans bouncing around all over the place, it’s no wonder that they all get much more than they bargained for.

The show begins Friday at 7 at CHS Theater.

Into the Woods

Only two days left of this amazing play by the Camas High School drama team. Final performances are November 16 at 7 pm and November 17 at 2 and 7 pm at CHS Theatre (aka Camas High School).
The play is directed by Sean Kelly, and the actors have done a fabulous job portraying Rossum’s characters. Kudos also to the set design team, the construction team, and those involved with creating the costumes for this play.
The Camas High School drama team has been working on this play for the past couple of months, and have worked closely to prepare for a great start. They accomplished their goal, and want to make sure the final two performances are their best.

About Robots

R.U.R. is a 1920 science fiction play by the Czech writer Karel Čapek. R.U.R. stands for Rossumovi Univerzální Roboti. However, the English phrase Rossum’s Universal Robots had been used as the subtitle in the Czech original. It premiered on 25 January 1921 and introduced the word “robot” to the English language and to science fiction as a whole.

Vancouver, WA – Vancouver’s newest theatre, Pacific Stageworks, opens its doors with the well-known script of Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest. Directed by Vancouver’s own Tony Bump, the production features a cast of seasoned performers acting “in the round” at the Heathman Lodge (7801 Northeast Greenwood, Vancouver, WA 98662), July 6-8. Performance times are: Friday July 6, 7:30 pm; Saturday July 7, 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm; Sunday July 8, 2:00 pm and 7:30 pm.

Adopting the mottos, “A great city deserves great theatre,” and “We take the drama out of drama,” the new theatre wants to lure in a younger generation of audience member and make their theatre a cultural center-point for Vancouver. Currently looking for a permanent home, the decision to perform The Importance of Being Earnest in a non-traditional venue shows that Pacific Stageworks is not afraid to think outside the box.

The cast includes: Kevin Gordon, Brett Johnson (of Camas), Will Johnson, Julie Dole, Ashley Hall, Kathleen Jung (of Ridgefield), Mike Heywood and Jillian Sternke (of Portland).

Though Earnest is officially a fund raiser, the theatre is keeping ticket costs low to make art more accessible to the community in this financially difficult time. Tickets are $12 (adults) and $10 (students/seniors). General seating tickets can be purchased at the website, www.pacificstageworks.com, or at the door with cash/check. Donations will be cheerfully and enthusiastically accepted at the performance.
