A WCT MAINSTAGE PRODUCTION

The age-old myth of Robin Hood has been told in legend, song and visual story in a thousand iterations. Robin's quest to offer justice to a populace burdened by the fatigue of war and the poverty that comes from an unfair class system is at the heart of most of these stories, which are framed by daring sword play, witty repartee and  the sound of arrows singing through the air.

In WCT's version, written and directed by our own Cait Cassée, we are given a beautifully written, critical lens to look at the powers of good, evil, and everyday heroes from a rich and historically accurate perspective. Richard I has just died, after 10 years of being an absentee king - off fighting his blessed/cursed Crusades and getting kidnapped and held for ransom by the King of Austria. He wasn't a great king. Neither was his brother, John I, who had installed himself as regent for most of that time and done a bang up job of alienating everyone from the church and barons "down" to the commoners. Everyone is disgusted by his overzealous taxation, luxurious tastes, and failed attempts to reclaim hereditary lands in France. The commoners are starving and exploited. Luckily, there are heroes among the common folk who emerge to use their gifts, and help themselves and their people out in these bleak times.

Robin and his band of merry folk offer hope and justice to their country, and to all of us who have ever felt like "the little guy" in our own lives. We welcome you to Sherwood Forest. Let the arrows begin to sing!

Jonas' world is perfect. Everything is under control and safe. There is no war or fear or pain. There are also no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community. But when Jonas turns 12, he is chosen for special training from The Giver—to receive and keep the memories of the community. The Giver is the only person who holds the memories of real pain and real joy. Now Jonas will learn the truth about life—and the hypocrisy of his utopian world. Through this astonishing and moving adaptation, discover what it means to grow up, to grow wise, and to take control of your own destiny. The Giver was commissioned by Oregon Children's Theatre

WCT's Summer Classic 2018
featuring a Cast of both youth and adults!

The musical begins as the bells of Notre Dame sound through the famed cathedral in fifteenth-century Paris. Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer who longs to be "Out There," observes all of Paris reveling in the Feast of Fools. Held captive by his devious caretaker, the archdeacon Dom Claude Frollo, he escapes for the day and joins the boisterous crowd, only to be treated cruelly by all but the beautiful gypsy, Esmeralda. Quasimodo isn’t the only one captivated by her free spirit, though – the handsome Captain Phoebus and Frollo are equally enthralled. As the three vie for her attention, Frollo embarks on a mission to destroy the gypsies – and it’s up to Quasimodo to save them all.
