Music, improvisation, fossils on tap for this weekend

A worldwide Broadway-style musical revue, a youth-oriented dinosaur exhibit and a chance to watch a play unfold on the spot are among the art and entertainment opportunities this weekend.

Venues in Clallam and Jefferson counties — along with the internet — are opening up, with safety protocols in place for attendees and performers.

Here’s a sampling of things to do.

• “All Together Now!” is an online musical revue from Ghostlight Productions, livestreamed from the Lincoln Theater in Port Angeles at 7 p.m. tonight and Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday.

Songs from “Rent,” “Les Misérables,” “Into the Woods,” Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast,” “Fiddler on the Roof” and many other shows fill up the production, for which tickets are at ghostlightwa.org.

Ghostlight joins more than 2,500 theatrical organizations around the world in staging this celebration of local theater. At the same time, the Ghostlight organization is renovating the Lincoln as a venue for its future live productions.

For more about the project, see gotothelincoln.com.

• “Dig In!,” a traveling exhibit from Seattle’s Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture, arrives Saturday at the Jefferson Museum of Art & History, 540 Water St., Port Townsend.

Dinosaur and fossil lovers of all ages are invited to explore the interactive exhibit — 540 million years’ worth of plate tectonics, dig pits and creatures from the Paleo- Meso- and Cenozoic eras — from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Admission is free and masks are required; for information see JCHSmuseum.org.

• Imagined Reality Improv will return to Olympic Theatre Arts Center, 414 N. Sequim Ave., Sequim, for a show at 7 p.m. Saturday.

In this evening of short-form “games” or scenes, four women and three men appear in a romp with no scripts. The ensemble is made up of actors from varied walks of life — a scientist, two lawyers, a classical musician, a human resources guru, a marketing expert and a teenage student – each bringing something different to the performances. Everything is made up on the spot from audience suggestions.

Tickets are $10 at olympictheatrearts.org or at the box office, which is open from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. today.

While all ages are welcome, show content is typically rated around PG-13. Proof of vaccination or a negative COVID test plus a matching photo ID are needed to enter the theater.

A jazz concert with flugelhornist Dmitri Matheny and the David P. Jones Trio starts at 7 p.m. Saturday at Maier Hall on the Peninsula College campus, 1502 E. Lauridsen Blvd., Port Angeles.

This ensemble features jazz musicians from around the Puget Sound region: David Jones on piano, Ted Enderle on bass and Mark Ivester on drums.

Tickets, $12 general and $5 for students, will be sold at the door only for cash or check; no credit or debit cards. Attendance will be limited to the first 40 guests, who must wear masks in the building at all times.

Attendees should space out between households in the theater and in the lobby. According to a press release, while organizers think vaccination is a very good idea, they will not ask attendees to provide proof of vaccination for this concert.

• The Northwind Art Virtual Auction continues through Sunday with dozens of experience packages and works of art at Northwindart.org.

Art lovers can support the nonprofit organization’s programs by bidding on paintings, photography, jewelry, ceramics and many other offerings. Fund-a-need donations are also needed for children’s art supplies and art teachers.

• “Chasing Shadows,” a multifaceted exhibition at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, 1203 E. Lauridsen Blvd., Port Angeles, is in its final days.

Admission is free to see the show, which includes paintings, photography and other media, all in the center’s Esther Webster Gallery.

Hours are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. today through Sunday while information about the exhibition — and about the Wintertide Festival later this month and next month — awaits at PAFAC.org.
