Oct 20-Mar 31Columbia Pacific Heritage Museum: Rewind to the 1960s--Peninsula’s Past - The 1960s were a decade of change on the Long Beach Peninsula. In 1961, the loss of the fishing vessel Mermaid and the motor lifeboat Triumph became the impetus for the founding of the National Motor Lifeboat School at Cape Disappointment in 1968. Red’s Café was the place to be in Ilwaco and Marsh’s in Long Beach made an exciting new acquisition with Jake the Alligator Man. Developers “found the beach” and created new communities such as Surfside Estates and Tides West. Roads were expanded and the “new” Astoria/Megler Bridge made a great impact on everyday life. The exhibition highlights everyday life on the Peninsula in the ‘60s and documents many of these changes. columbiapacificheritagemuseum.org360-642-3446

Jan 04-Jan 27Theatre West: For Better - In this plugged-in world of email, text-messaging and camera phones, do a bride and groom really need to be in the same country to go on a honeymoon?

Mar 08-Mar 31Theatre West: Meanwhile, Back on the Couch - Psychiatrist Victor Karleen is financially pressed between the rental of his posh office apartment and his fiancée’s expensive tastes. A colleague has written a best-selling case history book and is now rolling in royalties. Good friend Parker Donnelly has rejected Victor’s similar work because the public is tired of such things and prefers torrid fiction. Needing cash, Victor reluctantly takes on a new patient who, due to love frustration, is grinding out a rip-roaring sex novel. By mistake, his nurse gives the patient’s manuscript to Donnelly believing it to be Victor’s work. Suddenly Victor has an enormous advance royalty check, a Book of the Month Club selection, and a potential Pulitzer Prize. When he discovers that it is his patient’s inviolate confidences and not his clinical casebook that has saved the day, Victor determines to keep his patient crazy until he dreams up the final chapter. Meanwhile, Back on the Couch is fast-paced, hilarious, and zany. All performances at Theatre West. Tickets: Adults $15, Seniors and Students $13 theatrewest.com541-994-5663
May 03-May 26Theatre West: Borderline Crazies - Ellen hopes to ski and put some spark into her dull marriage to Stu, an efficiency author, while at Lake Tahoe in a rustic cabin owned by Stu's publisher. They are startled when a horror author and his sexy wife also arrive at the apparently double-booked cabin. The women immediately bond but the men squabble like spoiled two-year-olds and devise several wagers to determine who stays and who goes. Before anyone can leave, a police officer reports that a snowstorm has closed the roads and an axe murderer is on the loose. Stranded with no phone, no television and no radio, the writers may kill each other before the murderer gets to them. It's an avalanche of laughter with more twists and turns than a giant slalom. All performances at Theatre West. Tickets: Adults $15, Seniors and Students $13 theatrewest.com541-994-5663
Jul 12-Sep 01Theatre West: Sylvia - Greg and Kate have moved to Manhattan after twenty-two years of child-raising in the suburbs.

Greg brings home a dog he found in the park—or that has found him—bearing only the name "Sylvia" on her name tag. A street-smart mixture of Lab and Poodle, Sylvia becomes a major bone of contention between husband and wife. She offers Greg an escape from the frustrations of his job and the unknowns of middle age. To Kate, Sylvia becomes a rival for affection. And Sylvia thinks Kate just doesn't understand the relationship between man and dog. The marriage is put in serious jeopardy until, after a series of hilarious and touching complications, Greg and Kate learn to compromise, and Sylvia becomes a valued part of their lives.
