The Big Apple

Washington is known worldwide for its apples, but did you know that the largest contiguous orchard in the United States is located right here in Walla Walla County?

Broetje Orchards has over 4,300 acres stretching nearly 10 miles along the Snake River northwest of Eureka. We will tour the orchard and learn about the planting, growing, and harvesting of the fruit. We'll also see their storage facility that can hold over 500 million apples, and the packing lines that grade, sort, and package the fruit. The Broetje operation is unique in the apple industry in that the fruit is grown, stored, and packed at the same location, then shipped all over the world.

Following a nearly life-long dream of owning an orchard and helping children, Ralph and Cheryl Broetje have built a community as well as a business. To provide safe, affordable housing for its workers, Broetje built a community adjacent to their orchards named “Vista Hermosa,” or “beautiful view.” They provide recreational opportunities for families, medical care and educational programs for children, youth and adults, and promote leadership among their workers.

Broetje Orchards has received numerous awards for environmental excellence, community philanthropy and social outreach, promoting agriculture, and providing a high quality of life for their employees.

Old-Time Harvest

Old-Time Harvest

In the spring of 1919, a farm equipment exposition on Russell Creek Road attracted over 15,000 people from across the nation, most traveling by train, to the three-day event. At a time when agriculture was transitioning from horse-drawn to combustion-engine farm machinery, thousands of farmers and their families throughout the Northwest were anxious to view the latest innovations in modern farming. Come learn about the ag expo and see vintage farm equipment in action, just like in the old days at McKinney Farms.

Our hosts, Robert, Brandon and Bret McKinney and Sabrina Clinehens will share the history of the wheat harvesters as they transitioned from horse-drawn harvesters to self-propelled combines, to the computerized behemoths they are today. Guests will also see five restored vintage combines, followed by a presentation on the 1919 Expo by Sabrina. Climb onto the operator’s platform of a John Deere, if you like.

Next, we’ll view a rare demonstration of harvesting wheat using a vintage binder and stationary thresher. 

After, in the cool shade along Russell Creek, enjoy a sack lunch while listening to stories of old-time harvests told by local farm folks and their descendants. You’d be remiss to miss this farm day event!

This event is made possible by the generous support of Packaging Corp of America.

Gone Fishin’

Gone Fishin’

Come August, Chinook salmon are spawning in the Walla Walla river. That wasn't the case 14 years ago. Salmon disappeared from the Walla Walla basin more than 80 years ago, destroyed by a combination of development, water diversion, and reduced flows. Since 1987, the Tribes have worked to restore fish habitat and passage, including the removal of two dams. Finally, in 2004 spring Chinook returned to the Walla Walla River thanks to the tribe’s reintroduction program and its Umatilla Hatchery. In 2010, for the first time in nearly a century, the tribe opened a tribal fishery on the Walla Walla.

We will visit the Umatilla Hatchery Satellite Facility, located on the South Fork of the Walla Walla River, to learn about the fascinating life-cycle of the salmon and witness the hatchery spawning process. This hatchery is operated by the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation.

After, we will visit the Kentch restoration project that was completed in 2015. For over 100 years, the Kentch Reach on the South Fork Walla Walla River has been subject to extensive human-disturbance. Subsequently, the river channel was straightened out, isolating it from its historic flood plain. The result was a fast-moving channel devoid of any native fish spawning and rearing habitat. Ali Fitzgerald, a fish habitat biologist with the CTUIR, will share the history, process, and outcome of the Kentch Reach restoration project.

We will end the tour at the Frazier Farmstead in Milton-Freewater. You can visit the museum and enjoy your picnic lunch on its beautiful grounds.

Every Brilliant Thing

7:30pm 7:30pm

Every Brilliant Thing

Every Brilliant Thing is a one-actor play, adapted by playwright Duncan McMillan from his own short story Sleeve Notes. British comedian Jonny Donahue, who originated the role, shares in the writing credit. The play’s title refers to a list — of everything wonderful in the world — that the narrator writes in response to his mother attempting suicide. He starts the list at age seven with items like “ice cream” and “staying up past your bedtime”, and as the narrator grows older, the list grows longer.

The play’s story spans nearly three decades and several life-changing events, evoking laughter and tears in equal measure. The play has received critical acclaim in London, Edinburgh, and Off-Broadway in New York City.

Every Brilliant Thing invites some audience participation, primarily through asking people to read a few words aloud during the performance from slips of paper they are given as they enter the theater. A few audience members are incorporated into scenes, with the actor doing most of the heavy lifting. The play will be performed “in the round” with on-stage seating.

Kevin Loomer is a familiar face on Walla Walla’s many stages — under the spotlight and behind the scenes. He last performed on the Gesa Power House Theatre stage in Such Sweet Thunder in 2015, and as the title character in The Merchant of Venice in 2013. Kevin is the Director of Theatre Arts at Walla Walla Community College.

Director Nancy Simon is Professor Emerita at Whitman College where she taught theater classes and directed at Harper Joy Theatre for nearly 50 years. Following her retirement, she remains active in the local theater scene. She directed a staged reading of Pat Henry’s play Auschwitz and After at Gesa Power House Theatre in 2016.

Common Ground

On this excursion, we will journey to the Glass Project located on the Umatilla National Forest in the looking glass drainage. Still in the early phases, the project is being planned in collaboration with the Umatilla Forest Collaborative Group (UFCG). UFCG, formed in 2012, is a group of public, private and non-profit stakeholders representing a variety of backgrounds, including environmental groups, counties, loggers, public agencies, and wood product industries.

This tour will explore how these groups from divergent interests came together to find common ground on the forest management of this project that will provide wood products, employment opportunities and revenue to counties, while also improving forest health, protecting water quality and fish and wildlife habitat. 

The tour will include a walk around some of the potential units with a discussion of varying levels and methods of harvest and treatment. Protection measures and mitigations for sensitive species and riparian areas will also be explored.

Rim Trail Family Hike

This hike takes place in the Umatilla National Forest on Ridge Rim Trail deep in the Blue Mountains. The hike provides spectacular views of the forested canyons of the Umatilla River in their fall colors. Initially, the trail traverses on a level path through meadows overlooking the canyon of Lake Creek.

Looking across the canyon we may hear elk bugling or see a Black Bear with cub foraging on the mountainside. It is common to see Pileated Woodpeckers and Red Breasted Nuthatches in the forest bordering the meadows. We will descend on Nine Mile Ridge Trail into the old growth forest in the North Fork of the Umatilla Wilderness Area. Finding a comfortable overlook, we will stop for lunch and discuss our surroundings and identify future hiking possibilities. 

All of the animals of the wilderness - bears, wolf, cougars, elk, deer, coyotes and mountain birds are present here. Luck and our mindful powers of observation will determine what we see. The Western Larch will be turning gold on the mountainsides and fall mushrooms will be hiding in the forest. This is a wonderful hike to experience the beauty and wildness of the Blue Mountains.

The Magic Flute — Royal Opera

This production is filmed live in London and rebroadcast internationally to select screens. Mozart’s glorious opera "The Magic Flute" is brought enchantingly to life in David McVicar’s production with beautiful sets by John Macfarlane.

Prince Tamino promises the Queen of the Night that he will rescue her daughter Pamina from the enchanter Sarastro. He begins his quest, accompanied by the bird-catcher Papageno – but all is not as it seems…

David McVicar’s classic production embraces both the seriousness and comedy of Mozart’s work. The audience is transported to a fantastical world of dancing animals, flying machines and dazzlingly starry skies. 

This screening runs about 3 hours 10 minutes including one intermission and a 15-minute introduction. Beer, wine, and snacks will be available for purchase.

General admission tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.

Raptors of the Region

Raptors of the Region

Barn owls are an elusive and fascinating bird of prey. While barn owls are found around the world, many areas are experiencing a severe decline due to urban sprawl, habitat destruction and the use of agricultural poisons and pesticides. One way to encourage their population growth is through the installation of nest boxes on property— a current project of the Blue Mountain Audubon Society. 

On this excursion, we will visit Welcome Table Farm to see an active nesting box and learn more about the program from Chris Howard of the Blue Mountain Audubon Society. 

After, we will hear from Lynn Tompkins, Executive Director of Blue Mountain Wildlife, Lynn has helped rehabilitate sick and injured birds for over 30 years. In this lecture, you will meet some of their resident raptors. Lynn will share their life histories, their role in a healthy environment, and our role in helping to maintain a harmonious coexistence with our native wildlife.

Lynn will also discuss the harmful effects of lead ammunition on our regional raptors, in particular bald eagles. Bald eagles are America’s pride and joy. However, our beloved bird is treated better as a symbol than as a species.

Today, 10-15% of bald eagles die in the first year because of lead poisoning. Last year alone, sixteen bald eagles were tested for lead poisoning by Blue Mountain Wildlife. Lynn will share ways in which we can reduce the harm and help.

Coriolanus — Royal Shakespeare Company

This production is filmed live in Stratford-Upon-Avon and rebroadcast internationally to select screens.

A full-throttle war play that revels in the sweat of the battlefield, "Coriolanus" transports us back to the emergence of the republic of Rome.

Caius Martius Coriolanus is a fearless soldier but a reluctant leader. His ambitious mother attempts to carve him a path to political power, but he struggles to change his nature and do what is required to achieve greatness. In this new city state struggling to find its feet, where the gap between rich and poor is widening every day, Coriolanus must decide who he really is and where his allegiances lie.

Rome Season Director, Angus Jackson, completes the Royal Shakespeare Company’s collection of Shakespeare’s Roman plays with a visceral production which sees Sope Dirisu ("One Night in Miami") take on the title role.

General admission tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. Beer, wine, and snacks will be available for purchase.

La Boheme — Royal Opera

When Rodolfo, a penniless poet, meets Mimì, a seamstress, they fall instantly in love. But their happiness is threatened when Rodolfo learns that Mimì is gravely ill.

Acclaimed director Richard Jones (Boris Godunov, Il trittico) directs a new production of Puccini’s La bohème. Irresistible in its witty, passionate blend of comedy and tragedy, the opera focusses on the lives of a group of young artists as they eke out an existence on the bohemian fringes of Paris, the capital of the 19th century. Jones brings his characteristically acute insight to this much-loved classic, visualized in Stewart Laing’s spectacular, stylized 1850s setting.

Puccini’s romantic depiction of bohemian Paris, with memorable music and a love story drawn from everyday life, has captivated audiences around the world, making La bohème one of the best-loved of all operas. It was first performed in Covent Garden in 1897 and has had more than five hundred performances there since.

This production is filmed live in London and rebroadcast internationally to select screens.This screening runs approximately 2 hours 35 minutes including one intermission and an onscreen introduction. Beer, wine, and snacks will be available for purchase.

General admission tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland — Royal Ballet

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland — Royal Ballet

At a garden party on a sunny afternoon, Alice is surprised to see her parents’ friend Lewis Carroll transform into a white rabbit. When she follows him down a rabbit hole events become curiouser and curiouser…As Alice journeys through Wonderland, she encounters countless strange creatures. She’s swept off her feet by the charming Knave of Hearts, who’s on the run for stealing the tarts. Confusion piles upon confusion. Then Alice wakes with a start. Was it all a daydream?

Christopher Wheeldon’s "Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland" burst onto the stage in 2011 in an explosion of colour, stage magic and inventive, sophisticated choreography. Joby Talbot’s score combines contemporary soundworlds with sweeping melodies that gesture to ballet scores of the 19th century. Bob Crowley’s wildly imaginative, eye-popping designs draw on everything from puppetry to projections to make Wonderland wonderfully real.

Alice encounters a cast of extraordinary and instantly recognizable characters, from the highly strung Queen of Hearts – who performs a hilarious send-up of The Sleeping Beauty's famous Rose Adage – to a playing-card corps de ballet, a sinuous caterpillar and a tap-dancing Mad Hatter. But the ballet does not avoid the darker undercurrents of Lewis Carroll’s story: a nightmarish kitchen, an eerily disembodied Cheshire Cat and the unhinged tea party are all here in vivid detail. The delicious result shows The Royal Ballet at its best, bringing together world-class dance with enchanting family entertainment.

This screening runs approximately 2 hours 50 minutes including two intervals and an onscreen introduction. This production is filmed live in London and rebroadcast internationally to select screens. Beer, wine, and snacks will be available for purchase.

General admission tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.

The Nutcracker — Royal Ballet

The young Clara creeps downstairs on Christmas Eve to play with her favourite present – a Nutcracker doll. But the mysterious magician Drosselmeyer is waiting to sweep her off on a magical adventure. After defeating the Mouse King, the Nutcracker and Clara travel through the Land of Snow to the Kingdom of Sweets, where the Sugar Plum Fairy treats them to a wonderful display of dances. Back home, Clara thinks she must have been dreaming – but doesn’t she recognize Drosselmeyer’s nephew?

Peter Wright’s nigh-on definitive production for The Royal Ballet ranks as one of the most enduring and enchanting versions of The Nutcracker. With its festive period setting, dancing snowflakes and enchanting stage magic, Lev Ivanov’s 1892 ballet has become the perfect Christmas entertainment, with Tchaikovsky’s sumptuous, sugar-spun music the most recognizable of all ballet scores.

Loosely based on the story by E.T.A. Hoffmann, the ballet opens with a lively Christmas party, its Victorian setting captured in opulent detail by Julia Trevelyan Oman’s designs. Wright’s choreography ingeniously incorporates surviving fragments of the ballet’s original material, including the sublime pas de deux for the Sugar Plum Fairy and her Prince. But in emphasizing the relationship between Clara and the Nutcracker Prince, the production also gains a touching subtext of first love.

This production is filmed live in London and rebroadcast internationally to select screens. This screening runs approximately 2 hours 15 minutes including two intervals and an onscreen introduction. Beer, wine, and snacks will be available for purchase.

General admission tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students/Youth) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.

A Very Sordid Wedding — Washington Film Premiere
Sep
15
7:00pm 7:00pm

A Very Sordid Wedding — Washington Film Premiere

Two of the filmmakers, Del Shores (writer/director) and Emerson Collins (producer/actor) will be in attendance.

"A Very Sordid Wedding" (2017) is a direct sequel to "Sordid Lives" (2000) and takes place seventeen years later in the same small Texas community with many of the same memorable characters.

As the sordid saga continues, an anniversary memorial service is being planned in honor of Peggy at Bubba’s Bar while the Southside Baptist Church is planning an "Anti-Equality Rally" to protest the advancement of same-sex marriage. Both events are to take place on the same night, so the cast of colorful characters are all on a collision course for shenanigans and fireworks!

As the original film dealt with coming out in a conservative southern world, "A Very Sordid Wedding" explores the questions, bigotry and the fallout of what happens when gay marriage comes to communities and families that are not quite ready to accept it. Bigoted “religious freedom,” marriage equality and cultural acceptance are all explored with Del Shores’ trademark approach to using comedy and his much-beloved "Sordid Lives" characters to deal with these important current social issues and the very real process of accepting your family for who they are instead of who you want them to be.

"A Very Sordid Wedding" is unrated, but does contain adult language and situations. Recommended for 18+. The film runs 1 hour 50 minutes and will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmakers.

Reserved seating tickets ($20 Adults, $15 Students - for both films) will be available to the public on Saturday, July 29 at www.phtww.com or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. A $40 VIP Package is also available with tickets to both films, private meet and greet reception with the filmmakers.

Sordid Lives — Film

Sordid Lives is an independent film released in 2000, written and directed by Del Shores, based on his play of the same name. The film follows a gay West Hollywood actor as he returns home to his small Texas town for his grandmother’s funeral. Three generations of his dysfunctional family collide and the hilariously trashy truth of their lives are revealed.

The film’s remarkable cast includes Olivia Newton-John (Grease), Delta Burke (TV’s “Designing Women”), Bonnie Bedelia (TV’s “Parenthood”), Beau Bridges (TV’s “Masters of Sex”) and Leslie Jordan (TV’s “Will and Grace”).

“Sordid Lives” was followed in 2008 by the television series “Sordid Lives: The Series” which expanded on the events of the original film and included many of the original cast members. A sequel film “A Very Sordid Wedding” is currently in limited theatrical release and the September 15 screening at the Power House will be the official Washington Premiere of the film. Filmmakers Del Shore (writer/director) and Emerson Collins (producer/actor) will be in attendance.

“Sordid Lives” is rated R (language, nudity).

Titus Andronicus

Titus Andronicus

Join us for a screening of the current Royal Shakespeare Company production of “Titus Andronicus” which is filmed live in Stratford-Upon-Avon and rebroadcast internationally to select screens.

The decay of Rome reaches violent depths in Shakespeare’s most bloody play.

Titus is a ruler exhausted by war and loss, who relinquishes power but leaves Rome in disorder. Rape, cannibalism and severed body parts fill the moral void at the heart of this corrupt society.

Shakespeare’s gory revenge tragedy presents us with murder as entertainment, and, as the body count piles up, poses questions about the nature of sexuality, family, class and society.

General admission tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. Beer, wine, and snacks will be available for purchase.

May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers

Filmed with extraordinary access over more than two years, “May It Last: A Portrait of the Avett Brothers” is a deeply intimate and revealing look at the Grammy Award-nominated North Carolina band fronted by Seth and Scott Avett.

Directors Judd Apatow and Michael Bonfiglio chart the Avett Brothers’ decade-and-a-half rise, while chronicling their 2016 collaboration with famed producer Rick Rubin on the critically-acclaimed album “True Sadness,” released on American Recordings/Republic Records. Using the recording process as a backdrop, the film depicts a lifelong creative partnership put to the test as band members undergo marriage, divorce, parenthood, illness, and the challenges of the music business. More than just a concert documentary, “May It Last” is a meditation on family, love, and the passage of time.

Reserved seating ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online, by calling the box office at 509-529-6500, or at the door.

Ancient Palouse

Join retired Whitman geology and environmental studies professor Bob Carson as we explore the history of the first human settlement in this region.

First, we will visit the Marmes Rockshelter, which despite worldwide news coverage when discovered and excavated, is relatively unknown today. Finding Glacier Peak ash associated with human remains established this cave as the home of the earliest known people in the Western Hemisphere. How did these folks migrate from Asia: by land or by sea? Bob will help us uncover this question. 

After, we will travel to Palouse Falls, where Bob will take us back over 15,000 years, before the end of Earth’s largest floods. At that time, the Palouse River flowed west to join the Columbia River watershed in the Pasco Basin. Discharges of cubic miles of water per hour caused the river to overwhelm a drainage divide, heading south to join the Snake River at Lyons Ferry. How did water and sediment rushing south along the new river course cause Palouse Falls to originate and migrate north? You'll also learn how Palouse Falls became Washington State’s official waterfall.

Bob Carson has led numerous field trips in and outside the U.S. and has been an extraordinary Learning on the Land educator. He has published several books including, Where the Great River Bends and Many Waters: Natural History of the Walla Walla Valley and Vicinity.
