    • Gesa Power House Theatre

    Gesa Power House Theatre presents a Power House Movie screening of the 2020 independent dance film Aviva on Wednesday, January 19, 2022 at 7:00 p.m.

    “A freewheeling blend of dance and surrealist interrogations of gender identity…entrancing.“
    – IndieWire

    “Its leaps and transitions are often mind-bending…illuminating and expansive.”
    – The Hollywood Reporter

    After meeting online, transatlantic lovers Aviva and Eden embark on a tumultuous courtship, love affair and marriage. The couple struggles, separates, and tries to get back together, as dual aspects of each one’s personality battles forces inside and out.

    Director Boaz Yakin ‘s (Remember the Titans) dreamy dance film, with choreography from former member of Israeli dance company Batsheva Dance Company and co-star Bobbi Jene Smith, tells a story that is timeless, universal and yet up-to-the-moment. The character of Aviva, played by both Zina Zinchenko (and at times by Or Schraiber), is a young Parisian who develops an online romance with Eden, played by Tyler Phillips (and at times Bobbie Jene Smith), a New Yorker. After a long courtship they meet in person and fall in love, settling into an intimate relationship that leads to marriage, but one, as many are, laced with conflicts. Incorporating exuberant dance sequences, and featuring a pair of principal characters played by four different actors daringly expressing both masculine and feminine sides, Aviva captures a restless and changing today where who we are as women and men, and how we navigate the world, is up for grabs.

    Reserved seating tickets ($15 adults, $10 students) will go on sale to the public on Friday, November 26, online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. This unrated film contain nudity, and has runtime of about 2 hours.

    If you want to purchase 4 or more titles in the Power House Movie series together and save 10%, please call the box office at 509-529-6500 (offer not available online).

    • Gesa Power House Theatre

    Gesa Power House Theatre presents two performances of Vincent on Friday, January 21, 2022 and Saturday, January 22, 2022 at 7:00 p.m.

    Vincent is a one-man play written by Leonard Nimoy (Star Trek) and stars Jean-Michel Richaud, who has performed this show for more than five years on an International tour spanning three continents. The play is set just after the death of little-known painter Vincent Van Gogh, while rumors are flying in Paris. Some say he was a penniless madman, a frequenter of prositites and soon to be forgotten artist of trifling quality. Others denounce him as a wayward priest and a foreigner. Many whisper that he took his own life in a moment of insanity. His brother Theo (Richaud), Vincent’s confidante and lifelong supporter, takes the stage in a rented lecture hall to set the record straight.

    Vincent opened in Los Angeles in 2012, where it enjoyed a 14-week sold out run, moved to San Diego for a sold out run in 2013, and then began touring the United States, including many more sold out engagements. In 2015, the play had its French-language premiere in Paris, France, where it was nominated for Best Actor and Best Author awards at the Petits Molieres – the French equivalent of the Tony Awards for small theatres. Vincent has been touring internationally in English and French ever since.

    Throughout the play more than a hundred of Van Gogh’s paintings are projected on a framed screen, providing a rich overview of the artist’s work and visual complement to the story.

    “Insightful and moving”
    – LA Times

    “A fantastic ride”
    – Le Monde

    Actor Jean-Michel Richaud is a founding member of the award-winning theater company The Next Arena, has starred in many company productions, and has appeared in numerous television and film roles, including What Just Happened with Robert De Niro, Bottle Shock opposite Alan Rickman, and Agent X opposite Sharon Stone. He is also one of the top European voice over talents in Los Angeles, and has dubbed more than 300 movies into French.

    Reserved seating tickets ($30-$25 adults, $20 students) will go on sale to the public on Friday, November 26, online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. The play runs about 75 minutes without intermission.

    Please review our current health and safety precautions, including required mask use. Ticket holders will receive an email during the week before the show with any updates.

    Gesa Power House Theatre presents a Power House Movie screening of the award-winning documentary Kiss the Ground on Wednesday, January 26, 2022 at 7:00 p.m.

    “Inspires a rare feeling of hope”
    -NY Times

    Narrated and featuring Woody Harrelson, Kiss the Ground is an inspiring and groundbreaking film that reveals the first viable solution to our climate crisis. Kiss the Ground reveals that, by regenerating the world’s soils, we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems and create abundant food supplies. Using compelling graphics and visuals, along with striking NASA and NOAA footage, the film artfully illustrates how, by drawing down atmospheric carbon, soil is the missing piece of the climate puzzle.

    Reserved seating tickets ($15 adults, $10 students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. This event will have a total runtime of about 90 minutes.

    A group of ten people gather at the mansion on Soldier Island, just off the coast of Devon. They are invited under a variety of pretenses: for employment, for a detective case, or just for a good time. Before the party truly gets under way, a recording plays that accuses each guest of murder. Baffled, these strangers realize that they have no idea who their host is, and when the first guest is murdered, they understand that they have been brought to the island by a maniac who intends to dispense his own twisted form of justice.

    Gesa Power House Theatre presents a Power House Movie screening of the 2020 documentary film Since I Been Down on Wednesday, February 2, 2022 at 7:00 p.m.

    Meet Kimonti Carter. Former president and current member of an over 40-year Washington State prisoner-initiated program, the Black Prisoners’ Caucus. At 34, Kimonti founded TEACH (Taking Education and Creating History), a remarkably innovative prisoner education program.

    Kimonti and a group of his peers maneuver through a non-negotiable pathway to joining gangs as early as 11-years-old. This is a community profoundly impacted by the city’s disinvestment in housing, education, and employment as well as our policies in the 1990’s

    Since I Been Down is told by the people who have lived these conditions, unravels intimate stories from interviews brought to life through archival footage, cinema verité discussions, masquerade, and dance , unravelling why children commit violent crime and how these children – now adults – are breaking free from their fate by creating a model of justice that is transforming their lives, our humanity and a quality of life for all our children.

    Reserved seating tickets ($15 adults, $10 students) will go on sale to the public on Friday, November 26, online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. This event will have a total runtime of about 2 hours.

    With his theatrical company a local success, Buster Moon is dreaming of bigger things. Unfortunately, when a talent scout dismisses their work as inadequate for the big time, Buster is driven to prove her wrong. With that goal in mind, Buster inspires his players to gamble everything to sneak into a talent audition in Redshore City for the demanding entertainment mogul Jimmy Crystal. Against the odds, they catch his interest with some frantic creative improvisation and even more desperate lies like personally knowing the reclusive rock star, Clay Calloway, who has not been seen in 15 years. Now faced with a tight production window with only a vague story idea and dire consequences for failure, Buster and his friends must all stretch their talents put on a show against all odds. In that struggle, the gang's challenges seem insurmountable, but each of them finds new inspirations and friends where they least expect them to pursue an artistic dream worthy of them.

    Gesa Power House Theatre presents Psychic Comedian Peter Antoniou on Saturday, February 5, at 7:00 p.m.

    Fresh off of his star-making run as a semi-finalist on the 2021 season of America’s Got Talent where he revealed never before known information about Sofia Vegara’s engagement among other “wow” moments, Peter Antoniou is on his first US tour, giving the public, and Walla Walla, a chance to experience what they saw on television for themselves!

    “I’m so excited to get out and meet people in Walla Walla and show them what I can do,” says Antoniou. “It’s easy to dismiss the things you see on TV as being set-up or having people in on it, but giving people a chance to experience the mind reading for themselves is my favorite thing to do. And having the opportunity to tour America is a dream come true!”

    Combining comedy and a stunning ability to read minds, Peter will perform his full show, which involves members of the audience in mind reading demonstrations. Peter knows what is in your brain. Think of a question: it can be silly or serious; about your past, your present, or your future; it could be about your love life, or even just what color your underwear is. It doesn’t matter what it is, just think of it and Peter will look inside your mind and give you the answer. Part comedy, part mind reading, this fully interactive show will leave you asking, is your mind safe?

    Reserved seating tickets ($30 adult, $20 student) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.

Now faced with a tight production window with only a vague story idea and dire consequences for failure, Buster and his friends must all stretch their talents put on a show against all odds. In that struggle, the gang's challenges seem insurmountable, but each of them finds new inspirations and friends where they least expect them to pursue an artistic dream worthy of them.

    A group of ten people gather at the mansion on Soldier Island, just off the coast of Devon. They are invited under a variety of pretenses: for employment, for a detective case, or just for a good time. Before the party truly gets under way, a recording plays that accuses each guest of murder. Baffled, these strangers realize that they have no idea who their host is, and when the first guest is murdered, they understand that they have been brought to the island by a maniac who intends to dispense his own twisted form of justice.

    Gesa Power House Theatre presents a Live Cinema screening of The Royal Opera’s current production of Tosca, on Wednesday, February 9 at 6:00 p.m.

    Into the romantic world of an idealistic painter Cavaradossi and his sensuous lover Tosca comes the malevolence of Baron Scarpia, Chief of Police, with fatal results. Elena Stikina, Bryan Hymel and Alexey Markov bring to life one of the best loved operas in The Royal Opera repertory: Puccini’s Tosca. From the demonic chords with which it famously begins to the violent twist of the opera’s shock ending, the tension never lets up for a moment. Love and evil come – thrillingly – face to face in Jonathan Kent’s intense production.

    Filmed during a live event, the Live Cinema Series broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with incredibly detailed close-ups of the performers. The Live Cinema Series is sponsored in part by Shakespeare Walla Walla.

    This screening has an approximate runtime of 3 hours, 25 minutes, including an on-screen introduction and two intermissions. Beer, wine, popcorn, and snacks will be available for purchase, and may be taken into the theater.

    Reserved seating tickets ($15 adults, $10 students) will go on sale to the public on Friday, November 26, online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.

    Gesa Power House Theatre presents a Power House Movie screening of the 2021 short documentary film Takeover on Wednesday, February 2, 2022 at 7:00 p.m.

    In 1970, a group of young Puerto Rican activists took over a decrepit hospital in New York City, launching a battle for their lives, their community, and healthcare for all.

    Takeover explores the twelve historic hours on July 14, 1970, in which fifty members of the Young Lords Party stormed the dilapidated Lincoln Hospital in the South Bronx, drove out their administrative staff, barricaded entrances and windows, and made their cries for decent healthcare known to the world. They raised the Puerto Rican flag atop the building, as well as a banner reading “The People’s Hospital” – a nom de guerre still used today. Through archival footage, seamless reenactments, and modern-day interviews, we follow the Young Lords’ resistance against institutions curated by wealth and white supremacy, and their fight for the most basic of human rights: the right to accessible, quality healthcare.

    Takeover endeavors to capture the imagination of a new generation of activists, and suggest actions that ordinary citizens can take to change the conversation — and the country. It is more vital than ever before that the bravery and behavior of the Young Lords be shown, celebrated, and built upon today.

    Reserved seating tickets ($15 adults, $10 students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. This event will have a total runtime of about an hour.

    Challenges in life and love test the resilience of a mother-daughter relationship. Though Emma is often exasperated by her highly-opinionated mother, Aurora, they talk every day about their problems, from Aurora finding unexpected love even as she becomes a reluctant grandmother, to Emma's struggle in her troubled marriage. But when they need one another most, will they be able to find courage in each other? This funny and touching story captures the delicate, sometimes fractured bonds between mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, and lovers, both old and new.

    When the S.S. American heads out to sea, etiquette and convention head out the portholes as two unlikely pairs set off on the course to true love, proving that sometimes destiny needs a little help from a crew of singing sailors, a comical disguise and some good old-fashioned blackmail. This hilarious musical romp across the Atlantic, directed by the multi-award-winning Broadway director and choreographer Kathleen Marshall, features Cole Porter’s joyful score, including “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “You’re the Top.” and the show stopping “Anything Goes.” Anything Goes will take you back to the Golden Age of high society on the seas from the comfort of your cinema seat.

    Gesa Power House Theatre presents a Live Cinema screening of The Royal Opera’s current production of Rigoletto, on Wednesday, April 13 at 6:00 p.m.

    Gesa Power House Theatre presents a Power House Movie screening of the documentary Charm Circle on Wednesday, June 1, 2022 at 7:00 p.m.

    Oscillating between present day and decades-old home videos, filmmaker Nira Burstein returns to her childhood home—now crumbling from the inside out—to explore the circumstances in which her parents live. Prolific musical expression and creative resourcefulness punctuate an otherwise tumultuous environment. With the announcement of her younger sister’s polyamorous wedding, refueling tensions threaten to sever what’s left of the family bond.

    Burstein’s brave, wryly-amusing first feature is a tender, unpredictable portrait of a family struggling against an array of issues with honesty and a steely sense of humor. Going beneath the surface of the social struggles of its subjects, the film reveals people as more than the problems they experience and the labels applied to them.

    Gesa Power House Theatre presents a Power House Movie screening of the documentary All Ages Show on Wednesday, July 6, 2022 at 7:00 p.m.

    All Ages Show is a new documentary film about the history of the music scene in Tri-Cities, Washington, that began in the mid-1980s and continues today. While Seattle’s music scene, was changing the world in the early 90s with “grunge,” Tri-Cities had its own thriving music scene inspired by Washington DC Hardcore, a scene that many didn’t think could exist in a smaller community. The film also asks the question: with music now so accessible, band exposure so saturated, and record companies on the decline, could there ever be a thriving music scene again?

    All Ages Show is directed by Tri-Cities native Tony Moser, who worked in Los Angeles editing behind-the-scenes featurettes for feature films (The Amazing Spider-ManMen in Black 3), before moving back to his hometown to work as a video producer for a local media company.

    Reserved seating tickets ($15 adults, $10 students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. This event will have a total runtime of about 90 minutes.
