An Ideal Husband

By Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde’s smart social satire centers around a powerful politician and his high-minded wife who are beloved by London society. When a mysterious woman arrives to blackmail Sir Robert with damning evidence of a past misdeed, his career and marriage could be destroyed if she makes good on her threat. With his signature wit, Wilde pulls the curtain on the affluent, moralistic Victorian society. Hypocrisy, love put to the test, and scandal hold the intrigue in this timeless comedy — and only by way of enduring friendship and forgiveness do we discover love has little to do with ideals.

Starker Auditorium
Tickets: $10

Our loving (and legal) parody of the 90s nerd fave “Mystery Science Theatre 3000” features our local improv-ers and actors cynically disemboweling golden age science fiction films and PSAs no matter how loud you scream, “Down in front!” See it live, loud, and weeeeeeird at The Majestic!

I Am My Own Wife

Majestic Lab Theater
Tickets: $14

Back for a Limited Engagement at the Majestic!

We live in unsettled times, we have lived through unsettled times.

We question, we fret, we worry and we struggle to make sense of it all in a world gone mad.

We long to believe what we want to believe and we need to believe in something.

Our hope is Charlotte leaves you with something to believe.

"I Am My Own Wife" is the fascinating true story of Charlotte von Mahlsdorf, an elegant and eccentric 65-year old German transvestite and antique collector who, against all odds, hid from Nazi and Communist regimes in plain sight as a woman. A celebration of the perseverance of the human spirit, this play features one actor playing more than 30 characters. Winner of the 2004 Tony and Pulitzer prizes. Performed by Michael Winder and directed by Harriet Owen-Nixon.

Since moving to Los Angeles to chase the dream, Matt has recorded stand-up specials for Comedy Central and Netflix, appeared on countless TV shows, and become one of the most consistently entertaining, enjoyable stand-ups working today.

Robopocalypse: the Musical!

by Puppeteers for Fears

October 27 @ 7:30pm
Starker Auditorium
Tickets: $14-16

Banks. Bridges. Cars. Artificial intelligence will be running all of them before long. But what happens when it all goes wrong?

Hilarity ensues, complete with singing puppets.

Since 2015, Ashland's Puppeteers for Fears have electrified audiences and sold out venues in every major market on the west coast with innovative and hilarious takes on mummies, werewolves, serial killers, sasquatches, UFOs, cosmic horror, and more. But for the big bad of their next show, they move from the supernatural to the completely-plausible: the technology we create that could one day replace us.

Jolie Daniels, teen hacker extraordinaire, tries to build a sentient robot for the school science fair as a means to reconnect with her father (who is still reeling from the death of Jolie’s mother) but she accidentally births a malevolent artificial intelligence in the process that she alone has the ability to stop—if she can avoid the army of self-driving cars and web-connected smart gadgets that the A.I. has weaponized against her that is.

But this is a Puppeteers for Fears show, which means all that havoc plays out in song, and those songs are all 1980s-style synthpop that will have audiences struggling to stay in their seats instead of getting up to dance.

Two years in the making, Robopocalypse: the Musical!, is the biggest show Puppeteers for Fears has ever done, with a new cast of hand-and-rod puppets, 13 new songs written and performed on analog synthesizers by a live band, and fully immersive digital backdrops that allow the show to take place both in virtual reality, and IRL. It's got singing puppets, Minnesotan robots, talking cars, rap battles, the cast of Friends.... everything!

Equal parts Neuromancer, Max Headroom, and Liam Lynch, Robopocalypse: the Musical! is the cyberpunk puppet extravaganza you never knew you needed until now.

NOTE: Attendees should be aware that though this is a puppet show, it is NOT a children's show. The material is R-rated, and children should be brought only at parent's discretion.

Seeking fame and fortune, precocious teenager, Frank Abignale, Jr., runs away from home to begin an unforgettable adventure. With nothing more than his boyish charm, a big imagination and millions of dollars in forged checks, Frank successfully poses as a pilot, a doctor and a lawyer – living the high life and winning the girl of his dreams. When Frank's lies catch the attention of FBI agent, Carl Hanratty, though, Carl pursues Frank across the country to make him pay for his crimes.

Material Witness

November 6th @ 7:30pm
Starker Auditorium
Tickets: $8-10

The School of Language, Culture, and Society and the College of Liberal Arts at Oregon State University present “Material Witness", an Aanmitaagzi and Spiderwoman Theater production.

Three generations of Indigenous women bring forth their personal stories, investigating violence and healing in their lives. These stories burst onto the stage in absurd, raucous, and highly energized storytelling, dance and music. An unknown ancient woman rises out of the earth and conjures the space where the women tell their stories. She witnesses their intimate secrets as they navigate a path through their lives. "Material Witness" is the journey of their healing.

In 2012, Aanmitaagzi and Spiderwoman Theater came together on Nipissing First Nation to begin the creation of Material Witness, a project born out of Spiderwoman's very first show, Women In Violence. Over the next four years, the companies and artists travelled between Nipissing and New York City, developing the production. In tandem with the show, they developed the "Pulling Threads" Fabric Workshop which travels to Indigenous communities, where they create the story quilts that are woven into the set and installation of Material Witness.

“Grief turns out to be a place none of us know until we reach it.” In The Year of Magical Thinking, Joan Didion takes us through the disconnect between the mental toll of tragic personal loss and the actual reality that everyone else is living. The sudden loss of a loved one—a husband, a child—throws us into “the shallowness of sanity” where we believe if we do certain things the deceased will come back because they can’t have truly been gone: where Didion can’t give away all her husband’s shoes because “he would need shoes if he was to return.”

Portland Cello Project performs Radiohead’s OK Computer

March 8th at 7:30pm
Starker Auditorium
Tickets: $45-50

Portland’s premiere alt-classical group brings a huge, orchestral ensemble (including brass, percussion, and guest vocals by Patti King of the Portland band The Shins) to perform a night in homage to Radiohead. Expect an evening of unique renditions of classical Radiohead pieces that wander from truly epic to breathtakingly intimate.

OK Computer is a historic album that has proven over the years to yield an infinite variety of artistic inspiration to people of all walks of life. Cello Project first performed the record in its entirety in 2012 for the 15th anniversary of the album’s release, and ever since then, pieces of it have remained in the group’s repertoire as constantly evolving musical meditations.

All of the cellists in the group are classically trained, and yet, all of them seem to find a unique connection between Radiohead and their musical foundation. The deep layers of sonic ecstasy are reminiscent to all of so much late-19th-century music of the Western Classical Tradition, but beyond that, each of the cellists have worked to bring out subtleties they discover that hint at everything from Bach counterpoint at times, to rhythms they initially learned counting and performing Stravinsky.

By far the best and biggest reason, however, is how excited the band are themselves. It’s the combined commonality and diversity of background and influences that fuels Ímar’s unmistakable synergy, centered on the overlapping cultural heritage between Scotland, Ireland and the Isle of Man. All three places once shared the same Gaelic language – the name Ímar comes from a 9th-century king who reigned across this combined territory – and a similar kinship endures between their musical traditions.

Snowed in overnight at a middle-America airport, college lovers Elena Carson and Reed McAllister have an unexpected and life-altering reunion. Elena has stayed true to her hippie-ish, counter-culture path, while Reed has gone predictably corporate and conservative. As the night gives way to laughter, banter, remembrance and alcohol, Elena and Reed revisit a past that holds more surprises than they imagined—and a present that neither of them could have predicted. This is a bittersweet romantic comedy about the middle days of our lives, and how we got there.

A playful new adaptation of Jane Austen’s beloved novel follows the fortunes (and misfortunes) of the Dashwood sisters—sensible Elinor and hypersensitive Marianne—after their father’s sudden death leaves them financially destitute and socially vulnerable. Set in gossipy late 18th-century England, with a fresh female voice, the play is full of humor, emotional depth, and bold theatricality. SENSE AND SENSIBILITY examines our reactions, both reasonable and ridiculous, to societal pressures. When reputation is everything, how do you follow your heart?
