Stageworks Northwest, Longview Theater:
Maybe This Time – February 7th – February 16th (2020)
A comedy-drama about searching for the perfect mate in the online, app-driven world. First dates have become interesting in and of themselves because of the dynamics of two strangers meeting and trying to make a good impression. Maybe This Time explores this new approach to dating, the things we tell ourselves, and the things we tell others. *Comedy/Drama - Rated PG-13 – Mild sexual references
Euripides’ Trojan Women – February 21st – March 8th (2020)
The Trojan Women touches on darker, universal themes that can be seen in modern society. The story is influenced by the events of the Trojan War and its aftermath. It centers around the women and children survivors who are now hopelessly reduced to slavery and exploitation. Although written almost 2500 years ago, the play explores the darker nature of humanity created by unspeakable horrors of war and is still relevant to the events we see today. *Drama - Rated PG-13 – Adult themes
The Columbia Theatre: Celtic Illusion – Wednesday, March 4th (2020) Cleverly fusing electrifying modern Irish Dance with mind-blowing magic and grand illusions, the spectacular stage show has now returned to Australian stages for limited tour,

Catapult Dance – Friday, March 20 (2020) Catapult is, technically, a shadow dance company. What it really is: a theatrical art form that is an amazingly imaginative combination of dance, story-telling, and sculpture. An America’s Got Talent finalist from Season 8!

Sail On (Beach Boys Tribute) – Friday, February 14 (2020)

Sons of Serendip – Sunday, March 29 (2020)
Sons of Serendip create beautiful music through the use of harp, piano, cello and voice. This Billboard charting quartet is gaining popularity since appearing on season 9 of America’s Got Talent as finalists. Their program is a fresh mix of emotionally expressive popular music, engaging stories, and audience participation. Musical serendipity.
LCC Center Stage Theatre:
Number the Stars – February 28 – March 7 (2020)
During the German occupation of Denmark during World War II, the Nazis closed down Jewish-owned businesses and began to round up the Jews for relocation to concentration camps. Danish freedom fighters of all ages risked everything in daring attempts to smuggle the entire Jewish population across the sea to Sweden and safety. In this stirring play, young Annemarie risks everything to help her friend Ellen Rosen escape. But will the 10-year-old girl have the courage and ingenuity to succeed and escape capture herself? Based on Lois Lowry’s national best seller and Newbery Award winning juvenile novel of World War II.
