The Broken Badge- A Christmas Melodrama-
It’s Christmas Eve, 1939 and people are gathering around the radio as the cast of the “Longview Radio Theater” is about to go “On the Air” with their broadcast of A Broken Badge Christmas. This is the story of a small western town in 1896 that will eventually be called Longview. It is a story of lost love, a jilted woman, a “rehabilitated” villain and of course our hero Justin Credible and our Heroine “Longview Lacie” for this retelling of a completely true tale of the old west… well… that’s our story and we are sticking to it. Be ready to cheer our hero and boo at our villain. POPCORN THROWING WILL BE MANDATORY!

Clue - On Stage!-
Based upon the popular board game and adapted from the cult classic movie of the same name, Stageworks Northwest is pleased to present the Pacific Northwest debut of Clue on Stage. On a dark and stormy night, six iconic guests – each with an alias—plus a butler and a maid, and an odd assortment of potential weapons assemble for a dinner party at the home of Mr. Boddy. When their host turns up dead, it is clear that no one is safe! Soon the guests are racing to find the killer and keep the body count from stacking up. Clue is the comedy whodunit that will keep you guessing (and laughing) to the very end.
