The Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA) is pleased to announce the opening of The Orphans written by James Prideaux, directed by Chris Chiola and produced by Rikki Reid. This touching and funny production opens at The Barn Community Playhouse, located at 12th & Ivy in Tillamook, on May 22nd with an Opening Night Gala celebration.
family fortune, or so they think. They have secluded themselves in a room of New York’s once grand Chalfont Hotel and have lived in near isolation for those years. The hotel and its guests have steadily declined in stature, but with an energetic floozy next door and a gossipy operator constantly on the phone, there is seldom peace. Mr. Ervin, who has handled the ladies’ business affairs for years, comes to visit and warns of a claim to their family fortunes. Distrustful and afraid of the outside world, Lily must cope with protecting her sister from the fears of the world while Catherine yearns to break free and explore life.
Reservations for TAPA’s 35th Birthday Party are also now open at Diamond Art Jewelers. Celebrate 35 years of community theater at our Picnic Under the Stars on July 25th at the Port of Tillamook Bay’s Officer’s Mess Hall. Grab your friends, reserve your table, plan your perfect picnic and come to the party ready for good times. Our goal is to raise enough funds to add new restrooms that are ADA compliant and with more fixtures for our patrons.
