This delightful revue takes us through some of the most memorable music the Broadway stage has offered us...and more!

The cast features: Jennifer Purcell, Margaret Page, Lisa Greiner, Kathy Gervasi, Kayla Cooley, Abby Absher, Kelli McMellen, Jerilee Henderson, Wally & Diane Nelson, Bill Farnum, Fred Casey, and Joni Sauer-Folger.

It is strongly recommended you call and reserve your tickets early. Ticket price is $15.00 with the usual opening night gala.

This is a musical evening that will entertain young and old alike – so bring the entire family and join us for an evening of song and dance, as we support TAPA and celebrate the incredible phenomenon that is musical theater.

Cast & Crew of "After Hours" performs June 22nd & 23rd at 7:00 pm

The Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA) annual children’s theater camp is holding their performances this weekend. This year’s play, “After Hours” by Kevin Stone, follows two mannequins who come to life once their store closes for the day. Their evening shenanigans are interrupted by burglars, a night security guard, and evening window shoppers. With great comic dialogue and stage action, you won’t want the curtain to close on this crazy award-winning comedy, popular with all ages!

Directed by Diane Cross, the cast of this fun-filled production includes Kiara Carver, Ruby Gardner, Monica Brown, Keara Jacob, Marisa Walling, Samuel Smith, Kiera Walling, Nicolas Smith, Devin Reiff, Jaena Jacob, Kayden Edwards, Lilly Smith, Joey Reiff, Brynn Kelly, Davyn Wynia, and Devon Reiff.
