Loveland

“One of the most talented and innovative performers in the country” (LA Weekly), writer/performer Ann Randolph brings her latest solo show, Loveland, to WICA direct from a two-year sold-out San Francisco run. Randolph’s triumphant play is an ”unforgettable, over-the-top comedy that forces people to think” (The Huffington Post). Loveland follows the journey of irreverent oddball, Frannie Potts, as she flies cross-country to attend a family member’s funeral. She breaks down while soaring over the nation’s heartland and Randolph brilliantly portrays a plane full of hilarious characters in a show that is both outrageously funny and achingly poignant. Randolph’s fearless performance exposes the laugh-out-loud combination of absurdity and wrenching emotion that results when grief strips us of our inhibitions. "Compared to Gilda Radner," (The San Francisco Examiner) and hailed as "a genius" by comedy master Mel Brooks, Randolph is one performer not to miss. Category: Arts & Entertainment. Audience: Singles. College Students. Dads. Moms. Seniors. Cost: $20; $18 students and seniors (+$1.50 WICA ticket fee). Contact Name: Peggy Taylor. Contact Email: peggy@whidbey.com.

Movie Matinee at the Library

This is the incredible true story of the seven art historians and museum curators who went behind enemy lines during World War II on a mission to recover some of the world's greatest works of art. Determined to prevent 1000 years of culture from going up in flames, American president Franklin D. Roosevelt approves a proposal to form a task force comprised entirely of art experts to enter Germany, recover the works of art, and ensure they are returned to their rightful owners. With little knowledge of modern weapons or warfare tactics, the ragtag squadron has their work cut out for them. Popcorn provided by Friends of the Freeland Library. No registration required.
