“visiting mr. green”

Olympia Little Theatre is staging a comedy worth a look. “Visiting Mr. Green” follows the story of, well, Mr. Green as he wanders into New York City traffic and is almost hit by a car driven by Ross Gardiner, an ambitious and hard-working corporate executive. What starts as a comedy about two men who do not want to be in the same room together becomes a heartwarming and moving story as the two misfits get to know each other, come to care about each other, and open old wounds each has been hiding and nursing for years.

[Olympia Little Theatre, through Nov. 25, 7:55 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, 1:55 p.m. Sunday, $10-$12 available at Olympia’s Yenney Music Co. or, 1925 Miller Ave. N.E., Olympia, 360.786.9484]


“fiddler on the roof”

Saint Martin’s University Department of Theatre Arts in collaboration with the South Puget Sound Community College Theatre Department and Opera Pacifica, is staging “Fiddler on the Roof,” the story of early 20th century Russian Tevye, a dairyman, and his search for appropriate husbands for his three eldest daughters.

[Kenneth J. Minnaert Center, Nov. 16-17 8 p.m., Nov. 18 2 p.m., $15, 2011 Mottman Road S.W., Olympia, 360.596. 5501]

“the velveteen rabbit”

Olympia Family Theater presents “The Velveteen Rabbit,” a coming-of-age classic about a stuffed rabbit striving to be real only to find that being “real” might also mean staying stuffed.

[South Puget Sound Community College Black Box Theater, Nov. 15-16 7 p.m., Nov. 17 1 and 7 p.m., Nov. 18 1 p.m., $8-$15, 2011 Mottman Road S.W., Olympia, 253.596.5501,]
