The time is 1874, Baltimore, twenty-five years after Edgar Allan Poe’s death. Women gather at Birdie Toynbee’s manor to honor Poe and also give voice to feminist/suffragette concerns. Most of the woman are spiritualists or mediums, except for one who is skeptical and NOT a Poe fan. Not only does an unplanned séance occur but the women become involved in a grave political dilemma to save the life of one of their own.

String and Shadow Puppet Theater presents their 5th annual giant puppet show, Or So It Would Seam: a Giant Puppet Voyage into the Hidden Universe.

Between interdimensional subway cars, expanding black-holes, and giants who weave the fabric of space-time, Or So It Would Seam will take audiences out of this galaxy to contemplate the intricate and unexpected ways we are all connected to one another. Filled to the brim with giant puppets, original storytelling, and live music, Or So features a cast of 13 performers/musicians - and you, the audience!

Wacky drunken hijinks and tense political machinations trade off in this new conflated adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Henry IV Parts 1 and 2. King Henry IV of England is at his wit’s end with his first born son, Prince Henry (aka Hal). Instead of, ya know, learning how to rule a country, Hal instead spends his days hanging out with the notoriously witty drunkard and all-around scoundrel Sir John Falstaff and his merry band of borderline criminals. Meanwhile, rebellion is brewing—Harry Percy (nicknamed Hotspur because she has no chill) and her family are mustering an army to move against the King. Can Hal leave behind his wastrel ways in time to reclaim his country, his father’s respect, and his birthright? Or will Sir John Falstaff drag him down into a life of infamy, folly, and hilariously biting insults?

 

PG: Crude Shakespearean humor, depictions of alcohol use, sword fighting, bloodless onstage deaths

It’s Los Angeles in the Spring of 1943 at the studio of the radio program “Dead Serious.”  What happens when a murder actually takes place on the set of this popular murder mystery program?  When a poorly disguised man appears at the door of private detectives, Gail Bennett and Rita Miller, the story begins to unfold - revealing more questions than answers.  A meddlesome tabloid reporter, a vindictive sister, a couple of thugs with issues, and you’ve got the makings of a romp through the black and white world of noir – but this time in living color and with laughs along the way.

Lovers, fairies, and clowns inhabit this, the most magical of Shakespeare’s comedies! Three intertwined stories weave in and out of the trees of the mysterious Midsummer forest—as four young people find their feelings for one another tangled in a complicated and drama-filled quadrangle of affection, deep in the woods, the King and Queen of the Fairies are themselves engaged in a quarrel of their own. Meanwhile, a group of bumbling (but enthusiastic!) community theatre actors are trying their darndest to rehearse a play in honor of the Duke’s wedding. That famous trickster Robin Goodfellow, aka Puck, is determined to play pranks on them all, throwing their lives (and the plot) into a delightfully comedic fit of Midsummer madness.

After the collapse of civilization, a group of survivors share a campfire and begin to piece together the plot of The Simpsons episode “Cape Feare” entirely from memory. Seven years later, this and other snippets of pop culture (sitcom plots, commercials, jingles and pop songs) have become the live entertainment of a post-apocalyptic society, sincerely trying to hold onto its past. Seventy-five years later, these are the myths and legends from which new forms of performance are created.

Whenever we bring comedians to town we always ask them “Who are the best new stand-ups we need to know about?” And for the past couple years they’ve all said the same thing, “Maddie Wiener. Maddie Wiener. Maddie Wiener.” Still in her mid-twenties, she’s already opened for everyone from Dave Attell to Nikki Glaser, done a set for Comedy Central, and been named to Just For Laughs’ prestigious New Faces lineup. Originally from Chapel Hill, North Carolina, Maddie Wiener is now one of the most buzzed-about comedians in New York and a regular at the world famous Comedy Cellar. It’s always so cool to get to see a young comedian who’s really taking off, and we are so happy to have that chance here in Corvallis!
