Vagabond Theatre returns with new one-man play


Vagabond Theatre is presenting a new, one-man play called “France to Vietnam: Nightmares of a Baby Boomer.” It is written, directed and performed by Jim Watkins. Performances will be at Dukesbay Theatre, 508 6th Ave., Tacoma. Performance dates are as follows: Feb. 9, 7:30 p.m.; Feb. 10, 7:30 p.m.; and Feb. 11, 2 p.m. Tickets are $5 and can be bought ahead of time at For reservations, call (253) 561-7633. Running time is about 55 minutes with no intermission. There will be a discussion period immediately following each performance, which is open to all.

Vagabond Theatre was formed in 1980 by Jim Watkins and Byron Gangnes, theater students at the University of Puget Sound’s theatre department, who wanted to create additional opportunities for students to make and perform theater. Vagabond went dormant after about four years as founding members started graduating from UPS and went on to their careers. Watkins has returned to Tacoma after many years — including almost 20 years working and teaching theater — and has resurrected Vagabond Theatre to once again provide opportunities to those who are looking for an interesting and professional approach to producing theater works, both new and published.
