TKM @ Taproot Theatre. Scott and Pam Nolte have done something remarkable. They started a theatre company with four other students in 1976 whose mission was to create theatre that explore the beauty and questions of life while providing hope to our search for meaning. Since then they have become the largest and most critically respected of Seattle’s mid-size theatre companies. I attended my first performance in the early 1980’s and now, even though we live on Orcas Island, Kathy and I attend every performance we can. Sometimes we do shows after the opening show and when we do you’ll hear it here!
