Ministers of Grace at VLT

////

While Eugene’s Very Little Theatre (VLT) is continuing its historic remodel project, that doesn’t mean that they’re not ready to return to live performances. Ministers of Grace is a parody of the classic 1984 film Ghostbusters, with a twist—the original story from the film has been adapted into the language of Shakespeare’s day! Free and family-friendly, Ministers of Grace promises to be a fun event for the Lane County community, and a welcome addition to the growing number of in-person performances that are happening in Eugene and Springfield.

“The Spy Who Loved Me” at The Shedd

////

Okay, so espionage represents a HUGE genre, and accordingly there are a LOT of spy films out there…and almost as many spy film themes, from the always intriguing world of James Bond and his many predecessors, fellow travelers and imitators to the ridiculous madcap of The Pink Panter and sundry other tongue-in-cheek agents in the shadows. Peter and Will Anderson invite you to step with them heartily into this morass of deceit, adventure and great tunes.
