Kelli McMellon, Rodney Dahl, Mallary Josi, Jeremy Gilhousen, and Mike Critelli in "Suitehearts"
We are excited to announce the cast of the upcoming comedy “Suitehearts”, written by William Van Zandt and Jane Milmore, the creative team behind many hit plays and TV sitcoms. Directed by Chris Chiola and produced by Diane Cross, this production also serves as a fundraiser for the Tillamook Animal Shelter and United Paws of Tillamook. $1.00 from every ticket will be split and donated to these organizations that benefit the safety and welfare of animals in Tillamook County. There will be other opportunities to donate to these organizations, as well as information on their mission, in the lobby of the Barn Community Playhouse during the run of the show.

The cast of “Suitehearts” includes TAPA veterans Kelli McMellon and Jeremy Gilhousen. Mallary Josi and Rod Dahl return to the stage after appearing together in TAPA’s fall comedy, “Money Matters”. And making his stage debut is Mike Critelli. 

The show starts with newlyweds Timothy (Gilhousen) and Elizabeth Taylor (Josi) being taken

Auditions: Moonglow

TAPA is holding open auditions for the production “Moonglow” written by Kim Carney and directed by Ann Harper.  "Moonglow" is the story of feisty Maxine and widower Joe as they and their children live through a year of fading reality. Memories and their present circumstance intertwine in this account of life in an adult care facility. Several points of view on aging and dementia are presented. 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.
Auditions will be held at the Oregon Coast Dance Center at 106 Main Avenue in Tillamook on Saturday February 24th and Sunday February 25th starting at 3:00pm.

Performances will run May 4 through May 20.
