Upcoming Events

Are you a teen or an adult looking for a chance to volunteer?  Join us any or all Fridays from June 21 to August 30 for collecting seeds on the Prairie, 10 AM to 2 PM.  One group will head out to the Prairie around 10 AM and another group, if we have enough volunteers, will head out around 12 PM

This is a great chance to get outside and see how nature changes over the course of eleven weeks.  

We recommend wearing leather or rubber shoes that go to the ankle or above, long pants, and a hat.  Dry grass seeds can easily make their way into mesh and fabric shoes and socks, and there is no shade on the prairie.  

We also recommend bringing water, sunscreen, and even a friend!

At Whidbey Island Center for the Arts

SWING STATE - STAGED READING | NEW WORKS

This new American play recently closed in New York City and is making it’s way to our stage in a professional stage reading directed by Vito Zingarelli. In ‘Swing State,’ Rebecca Gilman looks for hope to outweigh despair in this contemporary portrait of America’s heartland in a time when it feels like everyone’s way of life is in danger of disappearing.

Recently widowed, Peg tends to the 40 acres of native prairie that rises behind her rural Wisconsin home. Her solitary days are interrupted only by visits from Ryan, a family friend with a checkered past. When her late husband’s footlocker is ransacked in her barn, she places a call to the local authorities—unwittingly setting off a series of events that will forever change their lives. As Peg and Ryan fight to regain each other's trust, they learn how to help one another in a new and meaningful way and how to forge a sense of hope.
