    Saw a very moving and well-acted Diary of Anne Frank at the school this past week. Minimalistic set (for obvious reasons, based on the setting for the family), emotional scenes, some interesting directoral descions (which made the play even better). Best dramatic play I've seen done at the high school since I've been there (11 years now). Bravo!

    I realized I hadn't posted about my most recent play attended: a high school production called Boeing-Boeing. It was about a playboy who juggles his three flight attendant fiancÚs' off-duty schedules, set in 1960s Paris. Funny farce style that made me actually laugh aloud (not just for politeness or smiling). This was about a month or so back.

    On its last day at the Pantages (the matinee showing, evening one was the last last show), I saw The Book of Mormon. Uncomfortably funny at times, very funny at others (I began reacting too soon at a joke once, apparently, based on no one else in the audience laughing ), quite a few SW and sci-fi references throughout, good songs. I enjoyed it.

    School performance of The Women of Lockerbie, based on the plane that crashed in the area around Scottish town, back in the 1980s. Very good job by all involved.

    Our local community theater is really good: saw a very good children's (so the playbill said) The Prince and the Pauper. The stage effects were great, actors were spot-on, nice blend of humor and emotion, great crowd reactions. No intermission, but it was around and hour and a half, so not long at all.

    Realized I never posted about a high school production of Arthur Miller's A View From the Bridge, which was the best accent-heavy play I've seen the school perform (it's set in Brooklyn, NY).

    And while not a play, per se, I saw Colin Mochrie and Brad Sherwood (of Whose Line is it Anyway? fame) in a hilarious improve comedy show. Have not laughed that much in a long time. Rigged! Avon ladies! Snoqualmie! Hungarian backpacking! Philosophy competition! (if you were there: those make PERFECT sense)

    In my area, there are a couple of theatrical traditions. For Halloween, it's Dracula. It's very good. We saw it a couple of years ago. The production company shakes it up very few years, and when that happens we will go again.

    At Christmas, it's A Christmas Carol. Again, the set was changed just in the last year or so; we saw it the last year before the change. We'll go again in another year or so.

    The ballet troupe does the Nutcracker. I've seen that several times. Local known landmarks are incorporated into the stage background.

    Guys On Ice a musical set in NE Wisconsin about wait for it.... guys ice fishing. Pretty good although they crank up the "Wisconsinisms" a bit too much. GOI was written and originally performed about 2 hours away from where I am currently sitting. In 2014 Wisconsin Public TV recorded a performance for broadcast.

    If you've gone through life wondering if you'd ever hear a song about a snowmobile suit than this show is for you!

    An improv show called Fairytales Unscripted, which wasn't about any specific tales, but used the motifs, character types, and imagery associated with fairy tales. It was three "stories" based on audience participation (my idea for place as a swamp was accepted for the first one). Pretty good.
