Boeing Boeing

March 11 & 12, 2016 at 8pm.

It’s the 1960s, and swinging bachelor Bernard couldn’t be happier: a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But Bernard’s perfect life gets bumpy when his friend Robert comes to stay and a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in town simultaneously, timid Robert is forgetting which lies to tell to whom, and catastrophe looms.

Private Cocktails

by

John Ruoff

March 31-April 30, 2016

Thu-Sat at 8pm, Sun at 2pm.

Private Cocktails is an original comedy by Seattle playwright John Ruoff. While each attempting their own illicit affair, Lord and Lady Dropbottom become entangled with two mysterious Americans. A hidden fortune, secret pasts, and an oddly familiar troop of servants turns an evening of cocktails into loopy chaos. Private Cocktails parodies 1940s pulp fiction and classic drawing room farce with plenty of Ruoff’s off-beat and clever wit.

THIS WEEK AT ECLECTIC THEATER: Keep Film in Wa!

Hello theatre and film aficionados,

I have a huge favor to ask, specifically Washington residents and friends.

Visit the website for Keep Film in Washington.  Absolutely, sign the petition–if you haven’t already–and share the link with your voting-aged friends and family members. We need to let our legislators know that film production in Washington State is important. And, good for the economy. For every $1 invested, motion picture production generates more than $10 of benefit.

Eclectic Theater has been rented for casting, production office, background holding and as a location over the years. This has kept us in business.

Currently, Washington’s motion picture competitiveness program (MPCP) allows $3.5 million annually in incentives for production companies. Washington Filmworks coordinates, so a company films a project here, using our resources and labor, staying in our hotels, eating at our restaurants, and we’ll give them back a portion of their expenditures. It’s a win-win, but the money goes so fast.

Washington State currently has only one television series filming: Z-Nation. While it is great to have this production, the one series occupies 49% of our MPCP’s available funds. The remaining funds are distributed to various film and commercial projects, but, alas,few and far between. With the existing cap, in 2014, all available funding was dedicated before May, and in 2015, March.  With incentive funds depleted, Washington State lost over $65 million in potential economic activity. That’s a lot of jobs–that didn’t happen.

Keep Film in Washington hopes to change this. As I invited earlier, please visit the site and show your support.

In addition, Thursday, January 21, Washington will celebrate Film Day in Olympia. Supporters of the cause will be meeting with legislators to discuss House Bill 2542, which seeks to raise our MPCP cap to $10 million and to extend the program through 2023.

If you’re available, join us!  Sharing with your elected officials is important. Mine have told me that in-person meetings do carry an impact. If you can come, be sure to RSVP before 5pm Tuesday, January 19.

Not available on Thursday, no worries. You can still send your support via email or phone calls to your district representatives at http://app.leg.wa.gov/districtfinder.

Thanks for reading,

Rik

Boeing Boeing

March 11 & 12, 2016 at 8pm.

It’s the 1960s, and swinging bachelor Bernard couldn’t be happier: a flat in Paris and three gorgeous stewardesses all engaged to him without knowing about each other. But Bernard’s perfect life gets bumpy when his friend Robert comes to stay and a new and speedier Boeing jet throws off all of his careful planning. Soon all three stewardesses are in town simultaneously, timid Robert is forgetting which lies to tell to whom, and catastrophe looms.

Rumor has it that Improv Conspiracy consists of John Araya, Alex Choi, Thad Hitchcock, Kara Pomeroy, and Parker Thompson.
