The Other Country, a community-based theatrical event for all ages, was staged at the historic Foss Waterway Seaport in August 2017, with five sold out shows. Luckily for those who could not get tickets or who were out of town, a video of the play has been created and is ready to share with the community. The Blue Mouse Theatre (in Tacoma's Proctor District) will open their doors to a benefit screening on Thursday, May 17 at 7pm. Admission at the door of $5 + donations will benefit the Tacoma Historical Society.
