Clackamas Repertory Theatre launches its 2013 season on Saturday, February 2, with a one night only performance of the traditional melodrama “Dirty Work at the Crossroads or Tempted, Tried and True.”
Following the performance, the CRT’s 2013 season will be announced and guests will be invited to join the actors in the theatrically decorated lobby for a celebration complete with piano jazz.
Directed by CRT artistic director David Smith-English, “Dirty Work” features James Sharinghousen, who played the Emcee CRT’s production of “Cabaret,” as the villain Munro Murgatroyd; and Heather Ovalle, “Cabaret’s” Fräulein Kost, as the evil seductress Ida Rhinegold. The audience will be encouraged to boo loudly, cheer enthusiastically, sigh sympathetically, applaud uncontrollably and best of all, throw peanuts at the wicked scoundrels.
The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are 2 for $125 or one for $75. They are available online at www.clackamasrep.org or by calling 503-594-6047. A portion of the ticket is tax-deductible. The performance takes place in the Osterman Theatre at CCC’s Oregon City campus.
