Award-winning actress/playwright Chris Black enters the ring for a dramatic one-woman show in Tough, which is inspired by the life of famed boxer John L. Sullivan, who traveled coast-to-coast challenging people to fights. While Sullivan's background, rise to fame and decline motivate the performance, Black's interest also lies in what it means to be strong and how athletes and performers harness that "special something" to become extraordinary. Black opens the show by throwing her hat in the ring and announcing the rules of the game, all while enjoying some good whiskey. Don't miss this unique, gender-bending performance that mixes power and poignancy. Learn More

From the Novels by Beverly Cleary
Her big sister, Beezus, thinks she exaggerates, but what’s a girl to do when she’s bursting with imagination? Effervescent, independent Ramona Quimby is about to start third grade — and what a year it will be. She immediately gets into trouble with her stern teacher, Mrs. Griggs, and her life on Klickitat Street changes dramatically when her dad loses his job and her mom goes to work. Through a series of vignettes drawn from Beverly Cleary’s Newbery honor books, meet Ramona, and follow her heartwarming and funny adventures with her family, friends, and neighbors as she tries in her own way to grow up.
