Dead Ringer Opens March 20th!

Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA) and Cyndi Lewis of Rob Trost Real Estate are excited for the opening of Dead Ringer, written by Gino DiIorio and directed by Robert Buckingham.
Opening March 20th, Dead Ringer is a dark comedy set in an abstract Wild West. This wickedly twisted curiosity of a play was a winner in the 2005 BBC International Playwriting Contest.  
The play centers around Tyrus Cole, a horse trainer, who lives on a ranch with his invalid sister, Mary. Because he can’t watch her during the day, Tyrus confines Mary to a root cellar. When Dwight Foley arrives at the ranch seeking help with his horse, he and Mary fall in love and begin plotting the demise of Tyrus and their eventual escape. Their plan escalates and
in the end, the three find themselves trapped in a complex web of greed and secrets. This production is intended for mature audiences only.
The cast (Robert Kratz (Tyrus), Rikki Reid (Mary), and John Davy (Dwight)) have been hard at work bringing the characters to life . With an incredible set built by Richard Coon, Diane Kreider, and Robert Buckingham, the Wild West goes on a wild ride in what The New York Times called a “winning combination of film noir westerns”.
Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased/reserved by contacting Diamond Art Jewelers, 503-842-7940.
This show can be seen March 20th, 21st, 22nd, 27th, 28th, 29th, April 3rd, and 4th. Friday and Saturday shows start at 7:00 pm, and Sunday matinees start at 2:00 pm. The doors open 30 minutes prior to curtain.
