Clackamas Rep announces new season

Enjoy 'Wing It' and 'The Actor's Nightmare'

SUBMITTED PHOTO  - 'One Slight Hitch' opens Clackamas Repertory Theatres 2016 season.

Clackamas Repertory Theatre has announced its 12th season. Included in the lineup are:

  • “One Slight Hitch,” a new comedy by Lewis Black, to be presented June 30-July 24 — It is Courtney’s wedding day, and her mom, Delia, is making sure everything is perfect. The groom is perfect, the dress is perfect and the decorations (assuming they arrive) will probably be perfect. Then, as in any good farce, the doorbell rings. Despite the family’s desperate and wacky attempts to keep the day on track — everything falls apart. So much for perfect.

  • “The Music Man” Aug. 4-28 — Trouble? Right here? In Oregon City? When “Professor” Harold Hill, the smooth-talking traveling salesman arrives in River City, Iowa, he quickly has everyone eating out of his hand, except town librarian Marian Paroo. At last, he’s met his match. But, the con man faces a tough choice: love or money? This iconic American musical is full of your old favorites, including “Till There Was You,” “Seventy-Six Trombones,” “Goodnight, My Someone” and many more.

  • “Steel Magnolias” Sept. 8-Oct. 2 — In Truvy’s beauty salon in Chinquapin, La., all the ladies who are “anybody” come to have their hair done. Filled with hilarious repartee and not a few acerbic but humorous verbal collisions, the play moves toward tragedy in Act II, revealing these Steel Magnolias’ underlying strength and love, which makes them truly touching, funny and marvelously amiable company in good times and bad.

    Season tickets go on sale Feb. 15. Prices are $75 for general admission, $72 for seniors (62 and older) and $30 for students (25 and younger).

    Those who wish to subscribe, but don’t know what dates work best, can purchase a Flex Pass. You get the same discount, but select your dates later. Flex Passes are available now.

  • Don’t miss “Wing It,” the interactive series of shows for children, ages 2-8. The next show will be held at 10:30 a.m. Feb. 13. All seats are $5 at the door.

  • Plan on attending CRT’s annual gala and fundraiser, “The Actor’s Nightmare,” on March 19.

    “The Actor’s Nightmare,” by American comedic playwright Christopher Durang, details the plight of George, a stranger who is suddenly pushed on stage to replace an ailing actor. Not only is he not an actor but an accountant, he has no idea what production he is in, and it keeps changing. The show features Jayson Shanafelt as George, Clackamas Rep company members and musical guests.

    The evening includes dinner, wine, a silent auction, a show, music, songs, a short live auction, dessert and champagne. Tickets are $60. Purchase tickets online at clackamasrep.org or call 503-594-6047.

    All CRT productions take place in the Osterman Theatre on the Clackamas Community College campus, 19600 Molalla Ave., Oregon City.
