Ballerinas to take the stage

Isadora Kolmorgan’s Dance Isadorable students will take the stage at The Rogue Playhouse the 4th weekend of September, Saturday, September 25 at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday matinee, September 26 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 and are available at outlets – Gold Beach Books and Jerry’s Roguejets Museum and Gift Shop, and at the door. Or email

Tiny dancers

Showcased will be the Honey Bees, ballerinas ages 2-5 years, and the older dance group ages 6-11. Come enjoy their recital as these Blossoming young ballerinas experience the thrill of dance performance before a live audience. That’s you, community supporters of the performing arts. You will help these children continue their love of dance (and performance) into their future, and help support Ellensburg Theater in its mission to support and produce performing arts.

Come what May

Make that April or maybe end of March and perhaps “Ideation” will be Ellensburg Theater’s spring production. This may work out better for some of our cast members’ schedules. And it’s an exciting change from the usual fare. Director Phil Dickson and assistant Michael Hall, along with cast and crew, are ready to do this once things open up.

June proposal

“The Curious Savage” by John Patrick. The unexpected twists and turns in some lives. The humorous situations. I haven’t seen the script yet, but director Debbie Roush, who directed Ellensburg Theater’s August production, “The Red Velvet Cake War,” has already come up with a late spring comedy proposal featuring 5 men and 6 women. Debbie is what we might consider a snow bird. We tried to discourage her from heading south this fall to return in the spring, but some things must be. Definitely something to look forward to for next June performance. And that leaves time for another production to take place in August, if we can come up with enough actors, and of course, another director.

Holiday production TBA

At this time we don’t have a performance scheduled for the holidays. Usually early December between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Perhaps a fundraiser concert for Ellensburg Theater to help with overhead expenses. We did this in 2020 right before “Just the Ticket,” and having 2 performances in one day enabled patrons to social distance while enjoying the performance of a variety of local talents. If you would like to lend your talents to this benefit concert, please contact me at or text me at 541-698-6792 and I’ll return your call.

Open Mic/Jam night

Still waiting for word of this weekly Thursday evening event to re-start. We’ll keep you posted so you’ll know when you can once again bring your varied talents for your time at the mic, or share the stage with other musicians.

Side note

The new side by side refrigerator freezer looks good in our kitchen. Takes a lot of effort, muscle and determination. And a friend with muscles to assist. I can only stand by and watch and keep out of the way. Men at work. Works for me.

Change is good

Maynard… ? He’s oblivious. Comes to life when bacon’s cooking. Knucklehead… ? Not overly impressed with the new solid block deer feed. The doe and fawn love it. Fawn over it. He just stares at the French doors as if to say, “Where’s the tomatoes and apple slices, and cooked veggies?’ Yes, cooked. Prefers that to raw. He still appears when Dick gets home, but seems perplexed at this change in his routine. A theater friend of mine (Erika) once told me, “change is good,” but I’m with you, Knucklehead. Too many changes. Soon enough you’ll be off to rut. We hope you make it back again next spring.

See you at Theater!
