The Peking Acrobats @ Pantages Theater
Jan 26 @ 3:00 pm

The Peking Acrobats are a South Sound favorite! They perform daring maneuvers atop a precarious pagoda of chairs; are experts at trick-cycling, precision tumbling, somersaulting and gymnastics; and defy gravity with amazing displays of contortion, flexibility and control. Masters of agility and grace, they push the envelope of human possibility. Often accompanied by live musicians playing traditional Chinese instruments and high-tech special effects, this show delivers an exuberant performance, with all the excitement and festive pageantry of a Chinese Carnival!

Oleanna @ Theater on the Square
Feb 6 @ 7:30 pm

Named one of Time Magazine’s “Ten Best Plays,” Oleanna is a seething investigation of sexual harassment, political correctness, and the irreconcilable differences between men and women. Pulitzer Prize Winner David Mamet pulls us into a provocative power struggle where “he said, she said” reaches deeply personal and explosive levels. This two-person story focuses on a university professor and his student as they view their out-of-class meetings from two drastically different perspectives. The audience will be challenged to decided what it means to be right or wrong in the midst of individual interpretations. This drama shines a spotlight on gender politics, privilege, status and power. Oleanna may provoke more arguments than any play you will see this year. For mature audiences. Talk-back with Director and Actors on February 23 following the 3:00 PM show. Preview Night: Thursday, February 6 at 7:30 PM. For complete performance schedule, visit tacomaartslive.org or call 253-591-5894.

Disenchanted! @ Pantages Theater
Mar 14 @ 7:30 pm

Poisoned apples. Glass slippers. Who needs ’em?! Not Snow White and her posse of disenchanted princesses in this hilarious hit musical that’s anything but Grimm. Forget the princesses you think you know – the original storybook heroines have come to life to set the record straight. These royal renegades have tossed off their tiaras while comically belting out the truth. Named the “Best of the Year – Theatre” in Playbill, this enchanted evening will not disappoint! Oh – and it’s not for the kiddies, folks!

Tribes @ Theater on the Square
Mar 26 @ 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. His parents and siblings fiercely cling to their funny, quirky, and politically incorrect world-views, but, Billy has adapted brilliantly to his family’s unconventional ways. And yet they’ve never bothered to return the favor. It’s not until he meets Sylvia, a young woman on the brink of deafness, that he 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. For detailed performance schedule, visit tacomaartslive.org.

Finding Neverland @ Pantages Theater
Apr 5 @ 7:30 pm

The winner of Broadway.com’s Audience Choice Award for Best Musical, this breathtaking smash “captures the kid-at-heart,” says TIME Magazine. Vogue cheers, “It’s a must-see you’ll remember for years to come!” Originally directed by visionary Tony®-winner Diane Paulus and based on the critically acclaimed Academy Award® winning film, FINDING NEVERLAND tells the incredible story behind one of the world’s most beloved characters: Peter Pan. Playwright J.M. Barrie struggles to find inspiration until he meets four young brothers and their beautiful widowed mother. Spellbound by the boys’ enchanting make-believe adventures, he sets out to write a play that will astound London theatergoers. With a little bit of pixie dust and a lot of faith, Barrie takes this monumental leap, leaving his old world behind for Neverland, where nothing is impossible and the wonder of childhood lasts forever. The magic of Barrie’s classic tale springs spectacularly to life in this heartwarming theatrical event.
