“Life is a Dream” Theatre Performance at the University of Puget Sound @ Norton Clapp Theatre at the University of Puget Sound
Oct 29 @ 7:30 pm

The University of Puget Sound in Tacoma is presenting their fall mainstage show, Life is a Dream. Twelve student performers will play multiple roles. Audience members must be 13+ years old. Tickets can be purchased online at www.tickets.pugetsound.edu.

In Nilo Cruz’s sublime translation of Calderón de la Barca’s classic Life is a Dream, the question of whether life is a dream or an illusion takes on a renewed relevance and urgency. Astrological omens predict that if King Basilio’s son Segismundo is crowned, he will become a horrible tyrant who will bring destruction to his kingdom. Basilio imprisons Segismundo for life, but decades later decides to let his son prove his ability to defy the stars. Allowed to rule the palace, Segismundo wreaks bloody vengeance on the kingdom, confirming the prediction of the stars, and the prince is returned to his prison.

All audience members must wear masks indoors on campus but proof of vaccination will not be requested. Non-campus community members will be asked to provide contact information. Student actors will not be required to wear masks during the performance.

Tacoma Arts Live presents Tribes: A Play by Nina Raine @ Theatre on the Square
Nov 4 @ 7:30 pm

We inherit our first tribe, the family. Our tribe speaks their own language, both literally and emotionally. Billy was born deaf into a hearing family, but raised to fit into the hearing world. Her parents and siblings fiercely cling to their funny, quirky, and politically incorrect world-views, but, Billy has adapted brilliantly to her family’s unconventional ways. And yet they’ve never bothered to return the favor. It’s not until she meets Sylvia, a young woman on the brink of deafness, that she finally understands what it means to be understood, to be seen, to be honored. Comic twists mix with charged emotions in a play that universally speaks to all of us. Each show will be ASL interpreted. For complete performance information, visit website.
