Clue – On Stage! – May 1st – May 24th (2020)

Based upon the popular board game and adapted from the cult classic movie of the same name, Stageworks Northwest is pleased to present the Pacific Northwest debut of Clue on Stage. On a dark and stormy night, six iconic guests – each with an alias – plus a butler and a maid, and an odd assortment of potential weapons assemble for a dinner party at the home of Mr. Boddy. When their host turns up dead, it is clear that no one is safe! Clue is the comedy whodunit that will keep you guessing (and laughing) to the very end. *Comedy - Rated PG-13 – Adult humor and mild violence

Arsenic and Old Lace – July 10th – July 26th (2020)

One of the most popular dark comedies ever written. Two sweet little old ladies seemingly take pity on lonely old men, then murder them with homemade elderberry wine laced with arsenic and have their slightly batty nephew – who thinks he’s Teddy Roosevelt – bury them in the cellar. Another nephew, Mortimer, who’s engaged to the minister’s daughter next door, learns of their enterprise just as third nephew, the evil Jonathan, decides to use their aunts’ home as a criminal hideout *Dark comedy - Rated PG-13 – Dark Humor

The Columbia Theatre:

Disenchanted – Saturday, April 4th (2020)

Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ’em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in the hilarious hit musical that’s anything but Grimm. Forget the princesses you think you know – the original storybook heroines have come back to life to set the record straight. These royal renegades tossed off their tiaras to bring their hilariously subversive, not-for-the-kiddies musical to you – and what you thought about princesses will never be the same! *Contains Mature Content
