Our next show opens on May 10! Join us for this original play by Frank Wildingway, with Gavain U’Prichard, Adam Stanton, and Barb Andree. Using projected imagery and live acting,, this piece explores various codes of conduct for white men that shape friendships and family for generations, and shape society.

Tickets available for $5-10 at the door on performance nights.


The Operating Theatre is the in-house acting company at The Ark.  Our mission is to bring immersive, transformative experiences to the stage, in order to lend depth of thought and feeling to the issues of our time as well as the eternal myseries.  We are delighted to offer original works that draw from a range of dramatic traditions, especially ritual and mythic drama, improvisational theatre, and avant garde performance art.  We are also excited to present theatre experiences for children.
