KHT’s Revolutionists arrive this weekend

Kristin Andree as Marie Antionette

Keizer Homegrown Theatre’s three-weekend run of The Revolutionists kicked off Thursday, June 4. 

Performances are slated June 4-5, 10-12 and 17-19. Showtime is 7 p.m. each evening outside on the patio behind the Keizer Cultural Center. The audience will be socially-distanced and masks are required. Seating is limited and tickets are $15 and available at Chairs will be available, but the troupe recommends bringing your own for maximum comfort.

Jessica Cavanaugh as Olympe De Gouge.

The Revolutionists revolves around Charlotte Corday and three other women – playwright Olympe De Gouge, Marie Antoinette and Marianne Angelle – in the center of the French Revolution and trying to find a way forward. The play is mostly a comedy and some of the language might be considered too harsh for children.

Performers will be unmasked (all are fully vaccinated) and have individual microphones to overcome the occasional gunning engine that passes by.
