  February 12th - 27th, 2016

A man is pursued by the police for a murder he did not commit, and by an international spy ring for information he does not possess. He finds himself fleeing across the desolate Scottish moors - handcuffed to a beautiful woman.

Mix a Hitchcock masterpiece with a juicy spy novel, add a dash of Monty Python, and you have The 39 Steps, a fast-paced whodunit for anyone who loves the magic of theatre.

This two-time Tony® and Drama Desk Award-winning treat is packed with nonstop laughs, over 150 zany characters, (played by a cast of four) an on-stage plane crash, handcuffs, missing fingers, and some good old-fashioned romance!

WICA is excited to offer again the conservatory class “Acting for the Camera”.  The previous class produced an original short film which has been entered into the National Film Festival for Talented Youth!

Seattle independent-film and professional actress Amanda Yeoman Brooke teaches this intensive, five-week workshop. Even if you've never acted, or been around a camera for filmmaking, you are welcome and encouraged to participate. The class will feature a heavy focus on scene study where students will learn character development and commitment, and it will explore different acting methods and how to utilize them in front of a camera.

NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE is necessary. Anyone who has the itch to create or the curiosity to commit to a character should dive in. The business side of acting will be covered as well, including the "dos and don'ts" of professional auditions and agency contact, how to develop marketing materials, and insights into college programs in film and theatre 

2016/2017 Season
call for proposals

WICA is planning the 2016–2017 season and actively seeking programming proposals for the Theatre Series and applications for the Local Artist Series. All types of productions will be considered for the Theatre Series: comedy, drama, musical, and classics, including Shakespeare.

The Local Artist Series offers a chance for local artists to perform on stage at WICA. Applications are accepted for all arts (music, dance, theatre, literature, spoken word) and are juried by a panel of community members. Artists receive the ticket proceeds from their performance, and facility rental and box office fees are underwritten by WICA. The deadline for the LAS application is May 1, 2016.

The season will be finalized by late May and announced at WICA's Volunteer/Donor Appreciation Party in June 2016.

Please contact Production and Programming Director Deana Duncan for more information at 360-221-8262 or deana.duncan@wicaonline.org.
