“Eatonville High School’s centennial will be centerstage May 21 during a decade-by-decade musical revue of 100 years of historic events in the lives of local citizens.

“Timber Town Tales” will be performed at 7 p.m. in the school’s auditorium. Advance tickets are on sale.

The production, a partnership of Eatonville Community Foundation and the Eatonvllle School District, is based on a play written by Puyallup resident John Colgan, whose son, John Paul Colgan, is the high school’s principal.

The cast of more than 100 local folks and students includes (pictured from left) Eatonville School Board member Ronda Litzenberger as the “Gibson” girl, Kirk Heinz as Doc Bridges, Karen Andrascik as a pioneer woman, Pat Van Eaton as a Tacoma Eastern Railroad conductor, Steven Sorenson as a World War I soldier, Kathy Malcom as a 1920s flapper, Eatonville Mayor Mike Schaub as “The Cruiser,” Dan Painter as a World War II Navy sailor, LaNorma Predmore as a bobbie sock girl, Lucy Fountain as a 1970s professional woman, Mike Knelleken as “skate board guy,” and Chris Bivins as a 1970s hippie.

Bob and Linda Miller, who are affiliated with the Pacific Lutheran University music department, have recruited musicians, singers and dancers for the performance, which will include Chris Anderson and Phil Moore.

The show’s sponsors are LeMay Family Collection, Northwest Costume, Spilled Ink Studio and Hemlock Productions, in addition to the school district and Eatonville Community Foundation.

Proceeds will support the foundation, a new charitable organization working to enhance the community.

Tickets ($20 general admission, $15 seniors and military, $10 children under 12) are available by calling the high school at 360-879-1200 or Lynette Henricksen at 253-219-6178.
