The Tillamook Association for the Performing Arts (TAPA) is pleased to announce the cast for the charming dramatic comedy, “The Octette Bridge Club”, written by P.J. Barry, and directed by Brenna Sage. On alternate Friday evenings, eight sisters meet to play bridge and gossip. The first act takes place in 1934; the second ten years later during a Halloween bridge party where each
acts out her costume’s persona. The emotionally distraught youngest, who does a hilarious Salome belly dance, has just gotten out of a sanitarium and knows that she must cut the bonds to her smothering family and strike out on her own. Don’t miss this sentimental comedy about American life in a bygone era.

The cast of “The Octette Bridge Club” includes TAPA veterans Caryn Backman, Karen Downs, Sandra Koops, Kimber Lundy, Margaret Page, Ben Ruderman, Carolyn Olsen, and Cynthia Jones. Making her acting debut is Carina Grossman.

“The Octette Bridge Club” opens August 26th and runs through September 10th. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:00 pm, while Sunday matinees begin at 2:00 pm. Doors open one half hour prior to curtain.
