PORT ANGELES — It’s harvest time, Sarah Tucker declares, at Studio Bob’s two fields of play.
Tucker is manager of the Alle Stage, a space for experimental theater and performance art, and publicist for The Loom, the adjacent bar. At both venues inside Studio Bob at 118½ E. Front St., “creative ventures have taken root and are flourishing,” Tucker said.
Tonight on the Alle Stage, for example, a 24-hour theater project will begin. This means actors and scene writers of all levels are invited to gather at 8 p.m., from which time they will craft an original play with producer John Manno and director Annie La Fritz.
After 24 hours of writing and rehearsing, a performance of the play is set for 8 p.m. Saturday on the Alle Stage, with admission a suggested donation of $5 to $10.
At The Loom, a lounge space next to the stage, “Drink and Draw” happens from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. each Thursday. This activity has clothed models posing for 20 minutes each, art supplies provided and several kinds of beverages, including the non-alcoholic ones.
Drink and Draw has no cover charge and, Tucker noted, “is being attended by skilled local artists as well as out-of-towners and novice art students.”
Also at The Loom, every third Wednesday is Life Drawing night with a nude model. This coming Wednesday, Aug. 21, the Studio Bob doors will open at 6 p.m.; admission for artists will be $10, or $5 for students. Doors will be locked at
6:30 p.m. and art-making will continue till 8:30 p.m.
The stage fires up again at 8 p.m. next Saturday, Aug. 24, as dancer Merryn Welch, master of ceremonies Richard Stephens and a collection of music-makers and performance artists present “Sideshow: Mutiny on the Alle Stage.”
Admission to this all-ages event will be $10 — or $8 for those who arrive in their finest steampunk attire.
