Theatre presents Heathen Valley Oct. 21-29

A well-meaning Episcopalian preacher tries to convert an isolated community in 1840s Appalachia.

Pacific University’s Theatre & Dance Department presents Heathen Valley as its fall theatrical production.

Performance dates are Friday through Sunday, Oct. 21-23, and Friday and Saturday, Oct. 28-29 at the Tom Miles Theatre in Warner Hall. Performances begin at 7:30 p.m., except for a 2 p.m. matinee on Sunday, Oct. 23. 

The cast and production crew will take part in a question-and-answer session with the audience following the Sunday matinee.

Written by the recently deceased Romulus Linney and directed by Pacific staff member Windy Stein, Heathen Valley centers on a well-meaning Episcopal Bishop who attempts to bring religion to an unspoiled Appalachian community in the mid-19th Century.

General admission is $7. Students with photo identification and senior citizens age 65 and greater gain entry for $5. 

Tickets may be purchased in advance by calling the Pacific University Box Office at (503) 352-2918. Box Office hours are Mon.-Fri. from 1 to 5 p.m.
