The Gothard Sisters – November 18, 2018
The Gothard Sisters are a dynamic group of three sisters, whose impressive array of
talents have set them apart as one of the most refreshing and compelling acts in Celtic
music today. The sisters' unpredictable and theatrical flair brings a youthful splash to the
time-honored tradition of Celtic folk music, bridging the gap between modern Pop and
Folk-Rock with a sunny, optimistic style that has been described as "beautifully-arranged,
melodic-minded Celtic Folk-Pop.”

Stageworks Northwest, Longview Theater:
Time Stands Still – October 26 – November 11, 2018
When photojournalist Sarah and her journalist boyfriend James come back from covering
the Iraq War, they are physically bruised and emotionally beaten, and they find
themselves examining their own relationship and way of life. Is it possible for two people
who are used to living in dangerous conditions to carve out a normal life? Can they stay
together amidst unspoken betrayals and conflicting ideals? Time Stands Still answers
these questions, while leaving unanswered qualms regarding the way America deals with
war and tragedy coverage.
