Island Shakespeare Festival
Island Shakespeare Festival is about people. Well, and Shakespeare. But also, artists, community, learning, connections, collaborations, music, art, life, the Pacific Northwest, and, oh, yeah, we truly believe that everyone should be able to see quality theatre. Performances are “Pay what you will.” We “pass the hat” after performances and appreciate donations. Shakespeare and classical theatre are what we do, but it really is more than that. In some ways, one could say that to us, theatre is sacred.
OutCast Productions is a private, 501(c)(3), not for profit theatre company incorporated in Washington State. As a theatre company that focuses on producing “theatre with a social conscience,” we strive to bring to our audience productions that encourage critical thinking about the social issues of our time. Our goal is to provoke a dialogue about such issues as oppression, human rights, politics, and the psychological and emotional worlds of human beings at large.
We welcome the opportunity to earn the trust of the community and deliver a product that serves and includes them.
Ned Farley and K. Sandy O’Brien are the managing partners of OutCast.

Whidbey Island Dance Theatre
Whidbey Island Dance Theatre (WIDT) was founded in 1993 with a love for dance. Back then it was known as Whidbey Dance Theatre, and it began with the idea of creating a new and exciting opportunity for young people in its community; young creatives of all ages, who also loved dance, could find their place on stage with their peers.
Hard work paid off. As the company moved forward and found its legs, it provided real, pre-professional dance experience to outstanding young dancers. Its participation in the wider world of dance followed. The juried, national association of ballet companies, “Regional Dance America,” chose WIDT as an RDA performing company from 2001-2012.
Since 2000, WIDT has performed throughout Washington, as well as in Arizona, California, Utah, Oregon, at the National Dance Festival in Pittsburgh, PA, and in Montreal, Canada. Through the years, both professional and community choreographers have expressed their appreciation for the generations of talented dancers they’ve worked with at WIDT.
Each year, WIDT graces the stage with two major productions, “The Nutcracker” and “A Celebration of Dance,” its springtime choreography showcase. Both highlight the diverse talents of its broadly trained dancers and feature the works of both resident and guest choreographers.
These productions are a gift, 28 years of WIDT making the creative, athletic, joyful and fun-to-watch magic that is dance!
The company’s main performance venues are South Whidbey High School Auditorium, a 400-seat theater, and Whidbey Island Center for the Arts, which holds 250 seats.
WIDT and Island Dance are located at 714 Camano Avenue in Langley. Office hours vary. Please call in advance to arrange a time or confirm when we are open at 360-341-2221 or email email@example.com.
