Happy Holly-days from TAPA

Turn your holiday humdrums into holiday cheer.  Come visit the funky little railroad depot in the funky little town of Holly, located at the edge of  town, in a little red barn in the middle of the stage at TAPA’s Barn Community Playhouse.

Hilda, the railroad station manager, as well as the train depot she manages, have seen better, days.   The attempts to cheer her up, by the colorful townspeople,  fall flat and leave everyone a little less in the holiday mood,  that is until a stranger arrives on The Christmas Express.

With the purchase of your train ticket (available at Diamond Art Jewelers) you too can discover the answers to such questions as:  Exactly why is Donna Faye taking the train home to mother?  Will her hapless husband figure it out before it’s too late?  Will the railroad station really be closed for good?  Can Myrna get a little cooperation from the locals and will Penelope discover the real story behind the new man in town?  

Stay tuned for the answer to these and the question that’s  on everybody’s mind, "can a girl from a small dairy town in the West find happiness behind the ticket counter at the Holly train depot ?”

The Christmas Express runs from the Tillamook Barn Community Playhouse in Tillamook Dec 7,8, 14,15,21,22 at 7:00pm and Dec 9 and 16 at 2:00 pm.   Tickets are available in advance at Diamond Art Jewelers 503-842-7940.
Join us for a champagne reception on opening night. Purchase of a ticket includes a complimentary beverage and finger foods. Reserve your ticket today by calling diamond Art Jewelers.
