Experience the struggle to escape oppression and discover life at Ellis Island during its busiest years, and the fears and dreams of every hopeful American immigrant.

Leah is a ten year old Russian Jewish girl growing up in a shtetl in the Pale of Settlement at the turn of the 20th century, who dreams of going to school like all of her brothers. When her oldest brother deserts the Czar’s army, Leah’s parents reveal a plan for the whole family to escape to America. Leah and her family face a long and risky journey, through Russia to their ship in Germany, and across the Atlantic Ocean to the New York Harbor. But when Leah alone is detained at Ellis Island, she must confront her biggest obstacle yet: what if she is sent back?

Student Tickets $5 (Call Box Office 360.373.6743)

New York Gilbert & Sullivan Players present an all-new touring production of “The Pirates of Penzance.” Set sail with this classic musical comedy that boasts one of the most famous patter songs in musical theatre history, “The Very Model of a Modern Major-General.”

Gilbert and Sullivan’s hilarious, hopeful farce follows young Frederic, an orphan who has mistakenly been apprenticed to an ineffectual but raucous band of pirates until his twenty first birthday. Helping Frederic to deal with this unusual predicament are the brash Pirate King, Ruth - the pirate maid-of-all-work, romantic Mabel, and the delightfully stuffy Major-General Stanley.
