SILENT SKY – January 21-February 6, 2022
The true story of a brilliant, history-making woman, hitherto unknown to many of us.
This true story of 19th-century astronomer Henrietta Leavitt explores a woman’s place in society during a time of immense scientific discoveries, when women’s ideas were dismissed until men claimed credit for them. Social progress, like scientific progress, can be hard to see when one is trapped among earthly complications; Henrietta and her female peers believe in both, and their dedication changed the way we understand both the heavens and Earth.
A CHORUS LINE – March 11-April 3, 2022
This ONE singular sensation is back to finish its run!
From the pen of legendary composer Marvin Hamlisch comes this Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning singular sensation! Casting for a new Broadway musical is almost complete, and for 17 dancers, this audition is the chance of a lifetime and what they’ve worked their whole lives for. A Chorus Line brilliantly evokes both the glamour and grind of showbiz, and is the musical for everyone who’s ever had a dream and put it all on the line. With its celebration and true-to-life depiction of performers and their struggle to achieve greatness on the Broadway stage, A Chorus Line has earned unanimous praise as one of the true masterpieces of live theatre.
THE HAPPIEST SONG PLAYS LAST – April 29-May 15, 2022
Tacoma Little Theatre and University of Washington-Tacoma join together!
In a barrio living room in North Philly, an activist-turned-music-professor moonlights as the local soup-kitchen queen, cooking free rice and beans for any hungry neighbor. Halfway around the world, her cousin relives his military trauma on the set of a docudrama that’s filming in Jordan. With the Egyptian revolution booming in the distance, these two young adults try to sing a defiant song of legacy and love in the face of local and global unrest.
THE LUCK OF THE IRISH – June 3-June 19, 2022
What would you do if someone claimed your home was theirs?
When an upwardly mobile African-American couple wants to buy a home in an all-white neighborhood in 1950s Boston, they pay a struggling Irish family to “ghost-buy” a house on their behalf. Fifty years later, the Irish family wants “their” house back. Moving across two eras, The Luck of the Irish explores racial and social issues and the universal longing for home.
