This year, Civic Rep Theatre ensemble has begun a “residency” at Open Space for Arts & Community. Their first production here, Dragon Country, opens November 8. This is an important milestone for Open Space and a key partnership that all of Vashon will enjoy.
Who is Civic Rep?
Civic Rep is dedicated to the art of theatre. They are committed to the craft and practice of compelling and intimate storytelling. They seek to contribute to the cultural life of our community with work that is accessible, relevant, and engaging.
What do you mean by “residency?”
In the same way that artists sometimes are in residence, arts organizations can be as well! Our shared values and love of theatre and performance made this a natural fit for bringing vibrant and interesting theatre to Vashon.
When will they start?
The first performances at Open Space for Arts & Community begin November 8 – 18, with Dragon Country—four short plays by Tennessee Williams.
