MEMORY


The Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA) and TLC Federal Credit Union are pleased to announce the cast of the upcoming production of Memory, TAPA’s 3rd production of the 2012-13 season.

Memory consists of two one-act plays written by different playwrights, both exploring memory and growing older in different ways. In I Can’t Remember Anything (written by Arthur Miller) two old friends trade lighthearted banter and stinging exchanges to express their conflicting views of “life’s truths”. At the same time, they reveal to us their enduring mutual affection and the importance of companionship as the shadow of mortality lengthens. In The 75th (written by Israel Horovitz) two classmates reconnect at their high school reunion 75 years after graduation. Now in their nineties, the two, Arthur “Cookie” Silverstein and Amy Chamberlain, don’t even remember each other at first, but, as they review their memories and recall old friendships, the past begins to clarify and emerge. The cast of Memory includes Robert Kratz, Sandra Koops, Terri Winkle and Bill Farnum.

The director of Memory is Bill Farnum. Bill has been involved in theater since 1980 in California and since moving to Oregon and becoming involved with TAPA, he has directed two other productions (Sylvia and Scotland Road) and has been on stage acting and singing.

Memory opens on February 22 and runs through March 9. Reserved seating will be available at Diamond Art Jewelers, (503) 842-7940. For information, please visit them on facebook, or contact info@tillamooktheater.com.
