The Last World Octopus Wrestling Champion
Book, music and lyrics by Justin Huertas
Gregory Award-winning playwright of LIZARD BOY
Senior year (and falling in love) is hard enough, but when the discovery of her mother’s old trophy throws open the locked doors of the past, a young girl must reckon with a world turned upside down – and the arrival of strange new abilities that seem to hint at a destiny beyond her wildest imaginations. Taking rich threads of Puget Sound history and folklore, musical mastermind Justin Huertas weaves a thrilling modern myth of love, family, and transformation.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm
“Justin Huertas is one of those people who seemingly can do everything.”
“[Huertas’s] songs liven up the action…His talent for choruses and his humor shine.”
– The Stranger
