Name: PA Community Players "To The Moon"
Date: October 6, 2023 - October 15, 2023
Event Description:
After last year's success with “Every Brilliant Thing”, the powerful one-person show that beautifully and powerfully dealt with the serious topic of suicide, Port Angeles Community Players (PACP) is again producing a gripping new social issue play in this 90 minute one-act docudrama. The PACP production, “To The Moon”, by Beth Kander will run over two weekends (and one Tuesday) from Friday, October 6 to Sunday, October 15. The show will be at the Playhouse on the main stage at 1235 E. Lauridsen Blvd. Friday, Saturday, and Tuesday performances are at 7:30 pm and Sunday matinees at 2:00 pm. Tickets are $15 for adults and $8 for students. Tuesday performances are $8 at the door. Tickets can be purchased at or at the Box Office on the day of the performance. A limited number of free passes will be available at the Box Office for anyone in need at all performances. What do a retired Jewish Mahjong player, a nursing mom, a devoted Christian, a former shelter resident, an Ivy-league trained Doctor, a LGBTQ PhD student studying philosophy, and a dance instructor/choreographer have in common? All are victims of Domestic Violence (DV) and all are characters in this new play, which premiered at the Creede Repertory Theatre of Chicago in 2021. “To The Moon” isn't about "an issue" flat and removed from actual experiences. The characters you'll meet in this play, whom you will find heartbreakingly human, are based on the dozens of real survivors who inspired their creation. The survivors who shared their stories are brave and quiet and fierce and mild and funny and as varied a community as you can imagine. Their compelling stories will keep you riveted to your seats. October is Domestic Violence Awareness month. This play is being presented in collaboration with Healthy Families of Clallam County (HFCC), in an effort to dispel old myths and raise awareness of DV. Donations for HFCC will be accepted both on-line during ticket purchases and at the Playhouse at every performance. Co-directors Mindy Gelder, Ph.D., LMFT and Ken Winters conveyed that “This is a play everyone should see. Because DV doesn’t discriminate based on economic status, educational level, ethnicity, gender, age, or religion. It can reach anyone and might be occurring right under people’s noses.” For more information call 360-452-6651 or send an e-mail to
