Oct 20 - Nov 18: Kris Knutsen in W(H)ACKED!

Kris Knutsen is a well-known, much-loved pal o' PT. She's managed our box office, apprenticed, and acted on our mainstage. Remember LAST TRAIN TO NIBROC? Colin Thomas wrote;
"Just a year ago, they were junior actors. Now they look a lot like stars. Adam Bergquist and Kris Knutsen, who participated in Pacific Theatre’s apprenticeship program last season, deliver confident, subtle—and ultimately very moving—performances in Arlene Hutton’s romantic two-hander, LAST TRAIN TO NIBROC.... Knutsen has a sly way of letting the sun of May’s smart, adventuresome spirit shine through the bars of her fear and narrow-mindedness.... Pacific Theatre is a Christian company. Perhaps that has something to do with one of their great gifts: they’re not afraid to present innocence on-stage."
Alas, Kris moved back home to Seattle, and (not alas) is currently onstage...

Maybe it's time for a road trip!

Want to see CARIBOO MAGI for free? Want to usher?

A note from Alison Chisholm, who runs the box office at Pacific Theatre;

Pacific Theatre is presently searching for volunteers to do some ushering for our upcoming show CARIBOO MAGI. This is going to be an amazing and VERY busy show (we're expecting a majority of sold out performances), so I strongly encourage you to take this opportunity to see this show for FREE. The show runs from Nov. 23rd to Dec. 30th with shows Wednesday to Saturdays at 8pm as well as matinee showings at 2pm on Saturday afternoons. We will also be adding two matinee performances during Christmas week. These performances will take place at 3pm on Dec. 27th, 28th. We could really use some help with the first week of the run (Nov. 23, 24, and 25), but all other timeslots of the run also need to be filled, so any help would be appreciated.

If you are at all interested in volunteering to help with this show, please email me ( with the dates and times when you would like to usher. Please remember that if you have any friends that would also like to usher, we can book you together (for a total of no more than four people working each performance).

I'd like to thank you in advance for your support and contributions to the theatre. Volunteers are vital to the success of the theatre.

All the best!

Alison Chisholm
