Theater, dance and opera around the region


Everett Community College: The theater arts department at EvCC offers “Stage Fright: The Wilde Liaison” by Clayton Weller at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 16-18 in Baker Hall, Room 120. Admission is by donation. Not suitable for children. Directed by EvCC instructor Beth Peterson, the cast includes Neal Akins, Jameson Cook, Devon Crabb, Genie Hopewell, Matthew Horsley, Sonja Kinzer, Cai Minto, Rachel Primrose and Chloe Rockwell. Commissioned specifically for the students of EvCC, the play was written in collaboration with the students. The story involves a drama club’s Victorian melodrama, which has not been produced since the late 1800s when it disappeared from public use under mysterious circumstances. During the production, mysterious events occur, forcing the actors to decide if they must discover the source of the treachery, or continue with the performance. The students are forced to overcome personal and literal obstacles in order to ensure that the show goes on.
