BY DIANA SON; DIRECTED BY JENNIFER DOLPHIN

Sara and Callie are walking through New York City's West Village very late at night, when they share their first kiss. This leads to a vicious attack by an angry bystander, in which Sara is horribly injured. She falls into a coma, which becomes one of the major subjects of the play. George, Callie's good friend, tries to help with the situation, but there is little he can do. Peter, Sara's ex-boyfriend from St. Louis, comes to help nurse her back to health. Throughout Stop Kiss, relationships are explored, formed, and even ended. Diana Son elaborates on the depths of human emotion and compassion in this play. 

OCTOBER 13-NOVEMBER 4

Currents Gallery

They work in different artistic media, but have been sharing ideas and mutual critique for many years.  It's no surprise then how their work blends in concept, color and design.   Marlene is one of the gallery's owners, and makes one-of-a-kind wall art, pillows, purses, and screens, with themes ranging from extreme abstract to extreme realism.  Sheuses appliqué, free-hand machine embroidery, mosaic and quilt piecing techniques using the finest quality fabrics.  She also makes her own fabric from original art, both hand-dyed and printed.  Daria paints with watercolor, acrylic, oil, pastel and ink, alone, and in various combinations to create art with a unique emotional perspective.  The show opens on October 16th and goes through November 12th. The public is invited to the opening reception during McMinnville's Art and Wine Walk on Saturday, October 21st.

BASED ON THE DREAMWORKS ANIMATION MOTION PICTURE AND THE BOOK BY WILLIAM STEIG, BOOK AND LYRICS BY DAVID LINDSAY-ABAIRE, MUSIC BY JEANINE TESORI, ORIGINALLY PRODUCED ON BROADWAY BY DREAMWORKS THEATRICALS AND NEAL STREET PRODUCTIONS, ORIGINAL PRODUCTION DIRECTED BY JASON MOORE AND ROB ASHFORD; DIRECTED BY ROBERT SALBERG

"Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek..." And thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking Donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you've got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand... and his name is Shrek.

Linfield Theatre Presents "An Evening of Short Plays" by Lauren Gunderson
Sep
21
to Sep 23

Linfield Theatre Presents "An Evening of Short Plays" by Lauren Gunderson

Join Linfield College for a fun night of theatre!  

The Theatre Program’s 98th season and 15th season in the Marshall Theatre opens with An Evening of Short Plays  by Lauren Gunderson, featuring Damsel and Distress Go to a PartyOr NotTwo Chairs, and Two Pigeons Talk Politics. Linfield alum and Adjunct Professor of Theatre Douglas Soderberg ‘79 directs. Performance dates are September 21, 22, and 23 at 7:30 p.m. in the Marshall Theatre in Ford Hall.

 

In these plays, Gunderson displays her enormous wit and biting satire. In Damsel and Distress Go to a Party, three women (played by Savannah Morton, Jennifer Furrow, and Adele Stireman) are getting ready to go out on the town. As they apply their make-up, they kvetch about the many faces – like "Pretty Face" or "Power Face" or "Political Face" – women are expected to wear to meet the world. Gunderson explores what happens when a modern day Horatio faces interrogation about the death of Hamlet in Or Not (featuring actors Koa Tomich and Robert Santos). In Two Chairs, Gunderson looks at "the short way to a happy ending" by chronicling, in a matter of minutes, the lives of Jake and Gretchen (played by Elise Martin and Nathan Dillon) from first grade to twenty-two years later. High above New York City, Gary and Paul (Christina Godinez and Claire Hamada) ponder the meaning of it all in Two Pigeons Talk Politics. Throughout all of these plays Gunderson entertains and challenges worn out stereotypes. Produced by special arrangement with The Gersh Agency, New York.

 

Tickets:

Tickets are all $5, with a special price of $3 for students on opening night (age 10+, any school). Seating is reserved. Tickets are available online at http://tinyurl.com/yaok2bsg and are available at the Marshall Theatre Box Office. Located in Ford Hall, the box office is open Monday through Wednesday from 3 to 5:00 p.m. and Thursday through Saturday from 3 to 7:30 p.m. These plays contain strong language. For more information, call 503.883.2292. The Marshall Theatre is fully accessible.
