Radium Girls

Posted on:

Come see the dramatic, historical production of Radium Girls, November 3-5 at Alpenrose Dairy Opera House, presented by students of Westside Christian High School.

Inspired by a true story, the play depicts the lives of working class women in the 1920s who, by painting the dials of “glow-in-the-dark” wristwatches, begin to fall mysteriously and fatally ill due to the radioactive paint they handled. This intriguing story prompts viewers to consider both past and present labor and worker safety issues,  scientific discovery, and consumerism in America.

Dates and showtimes are: Friday, Nov. 3, 7 pm; Saturday, Nov. 4, 2 pm and 7 pm; and Sunday, Nov. 5, 2 pm.

Admission is $6 for students and seniors, $8 for adults.  Tickets can be purchased at the door  at Alpenrose Dairy Opera House, 6149 SW Shattuck Rd, Portland.

Radium Girls was written by D. W. Gregory and first published in 2003.

“The Curious Savage” at the Alpenrose Opera House, located at 6149 S.W. Shattuck Road, Nov. 13 (7 PM), Nov. 14 (2 PM matinee and 7 PM), and Nov. 15 (2 PM matinee).

“The Curious Savage” is a play about a widow, Mrs. Savage, whose husband leaves her 10 million dollars. In spite of her grown-up stepchildren’s efforts to get their hands on it, she wants to make the best use of her inheritance the way she sees fit. With her money in negotiable securities, her stepchildren commit her to a sanatorium in hopes to “bring her to her senses.” There, Mrs. Savage meets a group of social misfits, whose quirks make it difficult for them to adjust to life. Driven by greed and dishonesty, the stepchildren are led on a merry chase in search of the bonds. With the help of her newfound friends, Mrs. Savage rids of her stepchildren and is enabled to establish her fund to help others pursue their hopes and dreams.

Through its quirky characters, we see how friendship, kindness, and affection is not entirely lost in a world so driven by dishonesty and greed.

The cast includes Hannah Badgley as Florence, Philip Mesa as Hannibal, Mercy McVicker as Fairy May, Christopher Kaetzel as Jeff and Sarah Moshofsky as Mrs. Paddy. Miss Willie is played by Ashlyn Carlisle and Dr. Emmett is played by Jonathan Saks.

The Savage Family includes David Madison as Titus Savage, Hannah Gouge as Lily Belle Savage, Jack Reese as Samuel Savage, and Natalie Brown as Mrs. Ethel Savage.

Tickets are available through the Westside Christian High School office and at the Alpenrose Opera House box office before each performance. Tickets are $8.00 for adults; $5.00 for seniors/students. For ticket questions, call 503. 697.4711.
