2016 Season

A Light in the Attic
Script by Tom Diffee, Words and Music by Steve Richards
Directed by Tom Diffee

For 2016, Catalyst Theatre will be kicking off the Christmas season at Cedar Park by presenting A Light in the Attic, written and directed by Tom Diffee (who also wrote and directed Katie’s Hope), composed and orchestrated by Steve Richards (who orchestrated the music for Katie’s Hope).

Set in two time periods a hundred or so years apart, A Light in the Attic tells a story of dealing with uncertainty in a changing world.  In the present day, Jeff Williams is dealing with being laid off when he stumbles on an old diary in his attic written by his great grandfather John MacFie.  As it turns out, John is going through a crisis of his own as he has to figure out how to raise money to keep his company going without laying people off.  Set in 1899 with rich Victorian-era costumes and sets and all the music of that era, A Light in the Attic is a fun but thoughtful look at what happens when we are faced with changing times.


All performances will be offered on the main stage at Cedar Park Church in Bothell, WA.
