Eleemosynary" at OutCast Black Box Theater at the Fairgrounds November 25 – December 3
Staged with utmost simplicity, using platforms and a few props, "Eleemosynary" by playwright Lee Blessing probes into the delicate relationship of three singular women: the grandmother, Dorothea, who has sought to assert her independence through strong-willed eccentricity; her brilliant daughter, Artie (Artemis), who has fled the stifling domination of her mother; and Artie’s daughter, Echo, a child of exceptional intellect—and sensitivity—whom Artie has abandoned to an upbringing by Dorothea.
One theater goer said of the show, "It's been awhile since I've seen a show where every element was so carefully considered and presented; so creative. Of course, the script is tasty. but all three actors just knocked it out of the park!"
Directed by Patricia Duff, with Shelley Hartle, Marta Mulholland and Rysha Maier through Dec. 3 at OutCast. This show is selling fast, so don't wait to buy tickets!

WIDT presents its 30th annual Nutcracker
Among the whirlwind of the holiday season, there is that undeniably lovely and tempestuous affair fluffed with snow and tulle and cute children in creature costumes that few can resist. That is “The Nutcracker,” of course, and Whidbey Island Dance Theatre (WIDT) is back on the SWHS Auditorium stage with the holiday ballet.
WIDT is particularly excited to present its 30th season of “The Nutcracker” which opens Friday, Dec. 9 and runs through Sunday, Dec. 18.
The company manages to combine the traditional and the deliciously daring in a production in which more than 75 characters come to life. As always, WIDT’s production is full of color and fun, newcomers and familiar faces, and new twists in choreography, along with the artistry of several professional guest dancers and the charming collective of an all-ages cast. Don't miss this Whidbey Island treat!
