"Our Country's Good" is a testament to the power of the human imagination to overcome prejudice. Based on a historical incident that occurred during the colonizing of Australia, this play explores the causes of racial, class and gender violence in a story that is frightening, funny, romantic, and uplifting.

In February The Willamette University Theatre will present its "Spring Dance Concert", directed by Virginia Belt. Productions will run Feb. 12-15.

If you have any questions regarding any of the productions this season, please call 503-370-6222.
