"Lulu's Back In Town" opens Oct 7th

TAPA presents Lulu's Back in Town, a musical revue that pays tribute to those crazy ladies (the Lulu’s we all love) who have inspired song after song since the 1920's. Ladies such as Miss Otis of Miss Otis Regrets, Delta Dawn, and Edie Bouvier Beale from Grey Gardens to name a few. Jazz classics like Twisted are on the menu, and the show also features songs that have been reinterpreted to take on a new (dare we say) hysterical, meaning. Did you ever think that the Partridge Family's I Think I Love You would be interpreted from the perspective of a stalker? Accompanied by Kathy Gervasi on the piano, TAPA veterans Brenna Sage, Margaret Page, Julie Bucknam, Steele Fleisher and Carina Grossman will be featured in this hilarious revue.

Lulu’s Back in Town opens October 7th at 7:00 pm.  Additional performances will be held October 8th, 14th, & 15th, all starting at 7:00 pm. Performances are held at the Barn Community Playhouse located at 1204 Ivy Ave in Tillamook and the doors open 30 mins prior to curtain. 

Join us for our Opening Night Gala where each ticket purchase includes one free beverage of choice and complimentary hors d’oeuvres. Tickets are on sale now at Diamond Art Jewelers in Tillamook, (503-842-7940) and can also be purchased at the door.  Adults tickets cost $15, children 12 years and under are $10, and a family of four are $40.

"Dear Santa" Open Auditions

Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA) has announced open auditions for the holiday production “Dear Santa” written by Rob Frankel and directed by Ann Harper.  "Dear Santa" is composed of a number of short scenes that range from the hilarious to the touching.  Santa and his helpers shed light on many of the mysteries surrounding him, including why you don't always get the gift you ask for, how Santa delivers all those gifts in one night, how he finds children spending Christmas away from home, and how his power transcends the boundaries of race, gender and religion. In the end, it is the faith of the many that sustains Santa.
TAPA is looking for six to eight (6-8) women and six to eight (6-8) men, ranging in age from children to adult, to fill the roles of this family-friendly production. No previous acting experience is necessary!
Auditions will be held at the TAPA’s Barn Community Playhouse, located at 1204 Ivy Ave in Tillamook, on Saturday Sept 17th and Sunday Sept 18th starting promptly at 1:00 pm.

Performances will run December 2nd – 17th.

Auditions packets are available here:  Dear Santa audition packet or by e-mailing TAPA at

The Octette Bridge Club cast

 “The Octette Bridge Club”, written by P.J. Barry, and directed by Brenna Sage, is set in Providence, Rhode Island in the 1930s and 40s. On alternate Friday evenings, eight sisters meet to play bridge and gossip. The first act takes place in 1934; the second ten years later during a Halloween bridge party where each acts out her costume's persona. The emotionally distraught youngest, who does a hilarious Salome belly dance, has just gotten out of a sanitarium and knows that she must
