Scappoose Theater presents their fall show. “The Diviners,” written by Jim Leonard Jr, tells the story of a young man with an acute fear of water who is guided by a disillusioned preacher. It takes place in the 1930’s during the time of the Great Depression. The Diviners will be performed October 25-27 at 7 P.M. and a matinee performance on October 27th at 2 P.M.

The Diviners has a small cast comprised of 11 people. Mr. Olson commented, “I actually did this play myself in high school, I played one of the two main characters, the same one Steven Hilts plays (Buddy), so I have a pretty deep personal connection to it, already knew this story and it was incredibly meaningful to me at the time. So I just wanted to share that story and that experience with the actors.”

Steven Hilts, one of the main characters says, “I play Buddy Laman, he has a developmental issue, and he contributes to the whole play because everybody surrounds him with love. I just feel like he’s always a part of this, of this community.”

The cast, crew, and director have been working hard on this play since early October.  Mr. Olson mentioned, “… A diviner could either be someone who is looking for water or it could mean someone who’s just looking for something and so I challenged the actors to think about what their characters were divining for.”
