“Pacifica” open at Six Rivers Gallery

Harbor Art Guild is presenting “Pacifica,” an art show, at Six Rivers Gallery in Hoquiam. The show is open now, and runs through Sept. 14. Exhibiting artists are displaying pieces that show influences from the Pacific Ocean and its environs. Curated by Lee Staley, the artists include Fran Allen, Sandy DeLuna, Kathleen Graddy, Mary Lou Gregory, Ken Hunt, Tina Atterbury Karvonen, Gary Douglas Lennon, John E. Miller, Robin Moore, Douglas C. Orr, Lee Staley and Jill Warber. An opening ​reception for “Pacifica” will be held at the gallery from 1 to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

Six Rivers Gallery, a project of Harbor Art Guild, is located at 210 6th St. in Hoquiam. The gallery is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and from 1 to 5 p.m. on Sundays. For more information, call 532-9979 or visit harborartguild.com.


Auditions for “Jesus Christ Superstar”

Auditions for the two male leads for the Driftwood Players production of “Jesus Christ Superstar” will be held at 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 24, and 7 p.m. Monday, Aug. 25, at the Driftwood Theatre, 120 East Third Street in Aberdeen.

The rock opera, written by Andrew Lloyd Weber with lyrics by Tim Rice, is a contemporary look at the events that defined the last seven days in the life of Jesus Christ. Jesus’ meteoric rise provides, as the title suggests, a parallel to contemporary celebrity worship as his radical teachings are ever-more embraced. Judas increasingly questions the enlightened motives of this new prophet, resulting in betrayal. Christ’s final days are dramatized with emotional intensity, through thought-provoking edge and explosive theatricality.

Director Steven Puvogel will look to cast Jesus and Judas during the auditions, looking for men in the 20- to 40-year-old range. Auditions for the rest of the cast will be held at a later date. For any questions or for more information, contact Puvogel at steven@puvogel.net.

B-25 at Olympic Flight Mueseum

The Olympic Flight Museum, located at the Olympia Regional Airport, will host the B-25 “Maid In The Shade” through Aug. 18.

The aircraft will be on display for the public, offering cockpit tours and rides. The B-25 Mitchell was made famous by the Doolittle Raiders, when sixteen of these medium bombers took off from the deck of the USS Hornet and bombed Tokyo just four months after Pearl Harbor.

The “Maid In The Shade” is owned and operated by the Commemorative Air Force-Arizona Wing, a non-profit museum of historic aircraft that often tour the United States as a flying tribute to American air power history.

Admission to the museum is $5 per person. B-25 cockpit tours are $5 per person. Rides aboard the B-25 are $395 (waist gunner) or $650 (flight deck). Hours of operation are 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For more information, call (360) 705-3925, or email inquiries to info@olympicflightmuseum.com.
