The Communication and Creative Arts department at PNW typically produces two productions a year. In the fall the department hosts a play and in the spring they host a musical. Shows are directed by faculty and/or students and the productions are cast with PNW students.
PNW students, faculty, staff and local community members are encouraged to attend.
The PNW Theatre Organization put on a one-act play by Carlos Reyes on April 20 and 21, 2022.
In a law office, several employees argue over the news that a rhinoceros is trampling through the town square. Is this true? Is it a hoax?
Although Eugene Ionesco wrote this play in 1959, in our world it can be challenging to understand if something is a conspiracy, a fact, an alternative fact, or a delusion.
The play explored ideas of mob mentality, cultural conformity, mass movements and fascism.

A Comedy by Mary Lynn Dobson | Directed and Designed by Zachary Gipson
A frantically funny, Monty Pythonesque retelling of the classic.
This time around, the legendary legend, in his never-ending quest to aid the needy, encounters a lovely damsel-in-distress (oddly obsessed with skin conditions); an everscheming sheriff who would rather bowl a strike than hit a bull’s-eye; a gold-hoarding, badguy monarch wannabe; and a good-natured “Town’s Gal” who manages to make his way into every scene, whether he belongs there or not. Combine them with an expandable band of spoon-wielding Merry Men whose collective IQs equal six, and you’ve got an irreverent jaunt through Sherwood Forest you won’t soon forget!
