Does our work define who we are? And how does that identity affect our community and the people around us? In this program, we learn lessons from a prize fighter, a half blind photographer, an aging steam plant worker, a determined composer, a teenage refugee, and a depressed psychiatrist about the work we do and how personal legacy can inspire more than just individual success.
Young and old come together in this program that juxtaposes the wise nature of the elderly with the spirited vulnerability of youth. And oftentimes, vice versa.
All screenings followed by Q&A discussion with festival director (and Lincoln City native), Michael Harrington.

A Christmas Story – Adapted by Philip Grecian
Directed by Bruce Allen
Dec. 2 – 18
Back by popular demand, this beloved Christmas movie is magnificently brought to life in Philip Grecian’s adaptation of Jean Shepherd’s ‘A Christmas Story’. The story follows 9-year-old Ralphie in his quest to get a “legendary official Red Ryder 200 shot carbine action range model air rifle with a compass and this thing, which tells time, built right into the stock”. But he is only left with the same answer from his mother, his teacher and even the department store Santa Claus ---“You’ll shoot your eye out”. Memorable characters come to life on stage in this holiday classic.
A holiday family favorite comes to life on stage.
