Dukesbay Productions Presents JAVA TACOMA: TO BEAN OR NOT TO BEAN

Dukesbay Productions presents Java Tacoma: To Bean or Not to Bean by Aya Hashiguchi Clark.

Something unique is happening in Tacoma theatre: an original situation-comedy for the stage about three life-long friends who meet every day at a Tacoma coffee house, will tickle our collective funny bones for an eighth time.

Jeri, Kate and Linda join forces one last time to commit comic mayhem over at Tacoma's Perky's Coffee House. This time, the ladies do battle once again with an unscrupulous real estate investor over the ownership of the historic building that houses Perky's. Watch as the BFFs team up with family members and newfound friends to outwit the business mogul at his own double dealing game. And maybe, they'll find a happy ending to their own stories. Loosely inspired by William Shakespeare's "Hamlet," JAVA TACOMA is a celebration of friendship, middle-aged womanhood and Tacoma.

JAVA TACOMA: To Bean or Not to Bean is the eighth and final installment of an original sitcom for the stage that began in 2011, presented by Dukesbay Productions. This theatrical serial is generously peppered with Tacoma humor. It is rated PG for occasional adult humor.

Review: THE WIZ at The 5th Avenue Theatre Photo
L. Frank Baum’s classic fantasy “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” is the gift that just keeps on giving. From its 1901 origins to the 1939 iconic film to any number of sequels, movies, and even a Broadway musical or two, we always seem to want to hear more and more about the magical land of Oz. And no small part of those tales is the fabulous William F. Brown and Charlie Smalls, Tony Award winning musical, “The Wiz” from 1974. And now the 5th Avenue Theatre has brought this green gem to vivid life with their current delightful production.

Review: THE WICKHAMS: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY at Taproot Theatre Photo
Christmas is a most favorite holiday to many, and the Jane Austen fan base has never been stronger. What could be more perfect than to revive some of Austen’s most beloved characters (and some of her most notorious) in a delightful Christmas setting? THE WICKHAMS: CHRISTMAS AT PEMBERLEY is a holiday treat. The production blends the lavish frippery of the Regency era with dollops of modern humor that is sure to please both traditional and contemporary tastes.
