This is a video sent by Angie Fisher the actress cast as our Fanny Brice in the now-canceled May-June 2020 production of “Funny Girl” at Lakewood Theatre. Ron Daum, the director of our production of “Funny Girl,” asked if she would record a song from the show as an opening night gift to the cast and crew. We were so touched by her song and asked Angie if it would be possible to share with you our subscribers and single ticket buyers. She heartily agreed and hopes you will enjoy it. We are saddened the show can’t be staged but her poignant version of “People,” is just what we need to hear today … and every day!
This is a musical review featuring the musical hits by Buddy Holly, the Big Bopper, and Ritchie Valens. The event was designed to raise funds for Lakewood programs. The evening featured Matthew McClure as Buddy Holly, Matthew Snyder as Ritchie Valens, and Eric Furuheim as the Big Bopper.
An original play written and directed by Cynthia Whitcomb
Set in a haunted theatre, where a group of interested characters hires a medium to try and lay the ghost of theatre impresario David Belasco to rest so the theatre can reopen. They successfully make contact but things go hilariously astray. A farce in the style of Noises Off and The Play That Goes Wrong.
Written and Directed by Terry Lomax
An original play based on German pastor and theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s true-life story, writer and director Terry Lomax has written a fictional account of the last hour of Bonhoeffer’s life.
Music, Lyrics and Direction by Matthew Capurro
Musical Direction by Jeffrey Michael Kauffman
Every relationship’s story has at least two sides. This highly anticipated song cycle featured in sneak preview last summer at Portland Playhouse explores stories of romance, family and friendships from their many sides, as characters share their sometimes poignant, sometimes comical perspectives.
an original musical By Hayley Green (Book and Lyrics) and Jean Lee (Music)
A man who will never leave the woman he loves. A woman who will not let herself see the truth. When July Abernathy is faced with a series of events set into motion by the one person that she could never live without, she is forced to see life from the other side of the coin and accept all of the reality that comes with it.The sweeping, melodic score composed by New York songwriter, Jean Lee, helps to create a deeply moving story that lingers with the viewer long after the last note fades.

American folk-rock story of family and alcohol in early Oregon
An original musical by Brian Harrison, Composer & Musical Director
Brian Harrison’s original musical is a vivid mixed media walk through time telling the story of Oregon’s wild past through the eyes of 2 children. A family must immigrate from Europe to Portland. A young brother and sister endure unthinkable events and struggle to overcome the darkness of greed, alcohol, abuse, and labor to save their grandfather’s fortune. Brian Harrison’s interest in Oregon history and his folk-rock sensibilities along with his classical training in piano and guitar shine in this musical’s elegant compositions.
