Book-It Rep Theatre brings “Shadow Catcher” to stage
December 12, 2013
Actors from Book-It Repertory Theatre will bring photographer Edward Curtis’ adventures to life in a presentation at 7 p.m. Dec.12 at the North Bend Theatre, 125 Bendigo Blvd. N., North Bend. The show is based on Timothy Egan’s award-winning book, “Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher.”
Curtis traveled around the United States in the early 20th century, documenting and photographing more than 80 Native American tribes.
According to its website, The Book-It Theatre adapts literature for the stage, preserving the narrative text as it is spoken. The technique is a dialogue by the characters in the production. It has been developed over the last two decades and encourages audience members to participate by using their imagination.
“Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher” is presented by the 4Culture’s Historical Performance Program, the North Bend Theatre and supported by the Snoqualmie Valley Historical Museum.
