Theater will soon present offbeat comedy
Clackamas Repertory Theatre will soon present "Tigers Be Still," written by Kim Rosenstock.
The offbeat comedy follows Sherry Wickman, who expected her life to come together after she gradated with a degree in art therapy. However, unemployment eventually leads her back to her childhood home.
Things eventually brighten up once she finds work, but she still needs her first therapy patient to do one of his take-home assignments, her new boss to leave his gun at home and someone to catch the tiger
that escaped from the local zoo.
Clackamas Repertory Theatre's production of "Tigers Be Still" features Heather Ovalle as Sherry Wickman and Annie Rimmer as Sherry's sister. Additional cast members include Michael Lissman, a graduate of the theater program at Portland State University, and Tim Blough, who has appeared in TNT's "Leverage" and NBC's "Grimm."
The show's production team includes director Jayne Stevens, costumer Anna Franz, sound designer Marcus Storey, scenic and lighting designer Christopher Whitten and properties designer Jennifer Whitten.
Rosenstock is a writer and producer for the popular Fox television sitcom series "New Girl," starring Zooey Deschanel. "Tigers be Still" was her first play.
