SEQUIM — Cheer the hero, boo the villain and sigh for the damsel in what Olympic Theatre Arts representatives call a “hilarious, over-the-top melodrama based on the mythical history of the Pacific Northwest and Sequim.”
OTA’s Lavender Melodrama hits the stage at 7 p.m. on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. on Sundays, during its run that begins this Thursday and goes through July 24 at the theater, 414 N. Sequim Ave.
Tickets are $20, $15 for students.
Sequim Lavender Weekend will be from July 15-17 this year.
Written and directed by Executive Director David Herbelin, the purpose of the Lavender Melodrama, OTA representatives said, is pure entertainment.
“This is sure to become a new annual tradition getting more convoluted year after year as the myths live on,” they said. “Filled with music and mayhem, this action-packed, suspense-filled tale is a laugh a minute.”
Supported by the local lavender community, OTA’s Gathering Hall will act as an information center to learn more about the local farms and industry.
