Our Next Production:
Come see a great comedy called Double Crossed in The Dalles. This melodrama shows an entertaining tongue in cheek look at the colorful history of our little corner of the world. The story is set in the early days of The Dalles when the town was the hopping end of the Oregon Trail, a promising and thriving political seat ready for the big time. The heroine of the show finds her naive self in the clutches of the villainous salon owner, Double Cross. Our heroine, Cherry Pitts, is befriended by a couple of local madams who are tired of turning a blind eye to the evil Double Cross's ways. In rides our hero, Randy Orchards, and the rest, as they say, is history!

Cherry crisp with ice cream will be served during intermission.

This play is recommended for 21 and over, due to content and innuendo.
