It's 1968 and Reed, a member of Seattle's Black Panther Party, must juggle the demands of a new marriage and a baby on the way, yet still find time to fight for liberation and dream of creating a better world. When her best friend Marti moves in, there is yet one more thing on her plate. Reed is unaware of the forces that will eventually destroy the Party, as well as the the ones that threaten her happy home. It will take 31 years before she discovers the betrayal that was at the root of a dream deferred.Find out more

ORCAS STORYFEST- "Shadows, Secrets and Other Stories"
Between shadow and light our human endeavors have endlessly sought to answer the questions: "Who am I? What’s this life all about?" The Orcas StoryFest spends Saturday evening at the Orcas Center, and will offer stories and songs that will explore a taste of our human journey: a tale of surviving cancer, boyhood days growing in Brooklyn, and a murder mystery of Chicago Chinatown circa 1920's.
Funny, profound and provocative, this adventurous road trip through memory lane conjures up the choices we make that shape our lives forever - and the friendships that hold us up when we can’t walk on our own. The Lost Virginity Tour is a comedy about four women recalling their first time, mining the importance of female issues and the progress made in the past few decades.Find out more
Orcas Center is pleased to welcome the performers of the San Juan Community Theatre to Center Stage for a special one-day-only production of A Christmas Carol. The story of Scrooge and the ghosts of Past, Present, and Future has been told dozens if not hundreds of times in various forms—even the Muppets did a take on it! It’s also known that Dickens himself toured around after the story was published doing public readings for enthusiastic crowds. Our version is much simpler than the Muppets. Five actors play all the parts in a 90-minute show that is produced simply because everything has to fit in the trunk of a car when we visit Lopez and Orcas islands. It features Brad Fincher, Kate Luebekman, Chelsea Parrot, BooBoo James, and Jim Hooper in a magical story of greed and redemption. It’s great for the whole family - see you there!Find out more
