The cast and production crew will take part in a question-and-answer session with the audience following the Sunday matinee.

Written by the recently deceased Romulus Linney and directed by Pacific staff member Windy Stein, Heathen Valley centers on a well-meaning Episcopal Bishop who attempts to bring religion to an unspoiled Appalachian community in the mid-19th century.

General admission is $7. Students with photo identification and senior citizens age 65 and greater gain entry for $5. Tickets may be purchased by calling the Pacific University box office at 503-352-2918 Monday through Friday from 1 to 5 p.m.
