Popular music of the 1930s and 40s will be highlighted.
We are looking for four women and three men to fill the roles of this production. One male and one female are over age 60, one male and one female are 35-60, one male and one female are 18-30 (some dancing will be required of these two), and one female is 25-50. No previous acting experience is necessary, although a willingness to work together and learn is highly encouraged.

Performances will run May 4 through May 20.

“The Edge of Darkness” sounds like a pretty ominous title for a play, until you find out it’s a psychological thriller written by the talented Brian Clemens. Directed by Steele Fleisher this can’t-miss production opens January 12th and runs through January 27th.

This dark and sinister thriller is set in the early days of the 1900s, with a daughter who has amnesia and a fear of knives and silver bells…but why? Who is the mysterious handyman, what secrets are the parents hiding, and why does the young woman sleepwalk...while talking fluent Russian? From an expert at the art of thriller writing with over fifty years of screenwriting experience...this is excellent entertainment for the dark winter nights of January!

 “The Edge of Darkness” opens January 12th  with a Gala Celebration, and runs through January 27th. Friday and Saturday shows start at 7:00 pm, Sunday shows start at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $15/person and available at Diamond Art Jewelers, 503-842-7940. For more information, email info@tillamooktheater.com or find us on Facebook.
