Ghosts walk the roads of modern San Juan Island in Departure, the latest outing by local author Anne L. Watson. The novella—part ghost story, part historical novel, part fable—features Henry, a worker of the Roche Harbor Lime & Cement Company, and Charlotte, the young daughter of a Friday Harbor merchant, as they search for clues to how they died and why they haven't been taken off. Along the way, they try to understand the curious changes in Island life and customs in the time since they lived.
The Bolshoi Ballet's panache and excellence are combined in Fadeyechev's critically acclaimed staging of Don Quixote, presented in HD at San Juan Community Theatre on Monday, April 18 at 7 p.m.
The Spring Street International School students take us into a George Orwell classic inside San Juan Community Theatre's Gubelman Theatre on Friday and Saturday, April 15-16 at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 17 at 2 p.m. Directed by Krista Strutz and adapted by the Shake & Stir Theatre Co., Animal Farm dramatically illustrates how greed and absolute power corrupts absolutely and, with devastating consequences, can change the course of history. Revolution has taken place at Manor Farm. The pigs have assumed control and under the principles of 'Animalism' a better life free from human service is promised to all. Guided by a simple set of rules and an unrelenting respect for authority, it is not long until the rules that promised freedom become the chains that bind the animals once again. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students.
