Ten Tiny Dances® presents edgy new work as dancers face the challenge of performing on a stage that is 4 feet x 4 feet x 1.5 feet high. Director Mishele Mennett explains the “less is more” principle brings an intense focus to the contained dances. Originally created in Portland, Oregon, in 2002, by Mike Barber, Ten Tiny Dances® continues to be produced by Mr. Barber, and others, with permission. Ballet, modern, contact improv, tap, jazz, and traditional Hawaiian dancers (along with an OSU robot) will all express the theme – POETRY – through their individual dance forms. The companion Tiny Art Show, coordinated by AliceAnn Eberman, will sell miniature artwork before the show. We invite you to share in this community multi-art event, all to benefit the Majestic Theatre.


Truman Capote’s brilliant, crisp writing, his colorful personality, and his craving for attention peaked in his drive to associate with the heights and riches of the social elite. He was allowed to gaze behind their masks. They gave him what he craved—if not love, at least a surrogate: their fascinated draw to his charisma. All the while, he was gathering material for his long-promised and self-proclaimed masterpiece, Answered Prayers. In TRU, Capote grapples with the self-inflicted loss of some of his super rich friends that he’d gutted through a published excerpt from Answered Prayers. And, it has the mirror effect of baring himself in much the same way as he had revealed them.


Shook Twins are a festival favorite indie-folk music group originally from Sandpoint, ID and currently based in Portland, OR. Formed in 2004, the nucleus of the band consists of identical twin sisters Katelyn and Laurie Shook.


Join us for a fun, zesty deep-dive into that most enigmatic of super-star composers, Mozart.

In The Hatmaker's Wife, a young woman moves in with her boyfriend expecting domestic bliss, but instead has trouble getting comfortable.

Everyone who ever died is still here, just in a different part of here. Linda can communicate with them. And if you believe, she can make you hear them, too -- in the thin place, the fragile boundary between our world and the other one.


Join us for a night of sensual-yet-sagacious stand-up comedy from some of our favorite acts from around the state. A perfect date night for that software-writing sweetie you've had your eye on, steamy belated Pi Day gift, or special someone from your Dungeons and Dragons campaign.


An infamous tale, Sweeney Todd, an unjustly exiled barber, returns to nineteenth century London, seeking vengeance against the lecherous judge who framed him and ravaged his young wife. The road to revenge leads Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop, above which he opens a new barber practice. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people of London lining up... and the carnage has only just begun!

Don't miss our fun VIP Meat and Greet event on opening night, where you can indulge in delicious meat pies and wine.

If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.
