COMMUNITY EVENTS
Harlequin Productions presents The 2nd Annual South Sound Improv Comedy Festival featuring some of the most acclaimed improv troupes from the Olympia area and the Puget Sound region. Troupes set to perform include Unexpected Productions, Jet City Improv, Fools Play, Olyimprov, Generation Friends, Hat Trick Pony, and Harlequin’s own improv troupe, Something Wicked. Local favorite comedian Morgan Picton serves as Master of Ceremonies. Last year, the festival sold out completely forcing the theater to turn patrons away. This year, it's a two-night affair, Friday night and Saturday night at 8:00 each evening at the State Theater in downtown Olympia. The two days feature two different lineups. Harlequin is offering both single-day tickets and two-day passes. For more information and to purchase tickets, see harlequinproductions.org.
There are 21,000 eggs filled with candy and prizes, and the Easter Bunny is on hand, as well. It's the Olympia Eagles #21 Annual Easter Egg Hunt at Priest Point Park in Olympia. It's free and it's happening Sunday afternoon starting at 2:00. Best to be there early as ages up to 12 all hunt at 2 o'clock sharp. To find out more, contact the Olympia Eagles.
It's Laughing Stock by Charles Morey at Olympia Little Theatre. It's a funny and genuinely affectionate look at the magic that lies at the heart of the theatrical world. When a rustic New England summer theatre schedules a repertory season of Dracula, Hamlet, and Charley's Aunt, predictably, confusion ensues. The show runs through Sunday the 19th. Olympia Little Theatre is Olympia’s oldest live theatre, providing quality entertainment at affordable prices since 1939. It's at 1925 Miller Avenue in Olympia (off Bethel on the Eastside). Lobby doors open 45 minutes before show time. For more information, visit at olympialittletheatre.org or call 360.786.9484.

Here's an idea: Have lunch at the South Puget Sound Community College restaurant, The Percival Room. They're open for business and there's lots of talent in the kitchen. They serve great food Monday through Thursday from 8:30 to 12:30, they take reservations, and also cater to large parties with an extensive menu. On the menu, you'll always find a crispy pecan and tabasco fried chicken breast with whipped potatoes, slow stewed greens and red eye gravy. You can also enjoy the Clipper Burger -- a fresh house ground sirloin, with Tillamook Sharp cheddar cheese, tomato, and caramelized onions, arugula, and a Dijon aioli on a brown butter toasted brioche bun. Other than that, it's a revolving menu according to the seasons. For more information, visit them here or call 360.596.5404.
