Our in house ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW cast the Denton Delinquents will shadowcast GREASE on Saturday night! Doors and pre-show at 8pm, the film will start around 8:30pm! Rydell High's most famous graduating class is coming back to the Kiggins! A newly restored digital print brings the highest-grossing musical of all time, "Grease" (1978), back to school and back on the big screen, this time as a sing-along! Join Danny (John Travolta) and Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) and their T-Birds and Pink Ladies for Greased Lightning, Beauty School Drop Outs, and a carnival ride back to those amazing Summer Nights! Dressing up is highly encouraged. Grease is the Word!
Come raise a glass with Clark County Historical Museum and the Kiggins Theatre as we explore the history of the Pacific Northwest! Now in its third season, History on Tap looks at how the past influences our present and informs the future. It’s built on the premise that history didn’t end on some dusty date on the calendar but is a dynamic story where every person is an active participant. We are back to LIVE shows starting in June! Tickets are $15. Between 1841 and 1869, the Oregon Trail was traveled by settlers looking to escape the economic downturn, religious persecution, war mongering and political animosity. The offer for free land in wide open and fertile spaces and perhaps a little gold to be found on that land was irresistible. But...there was a catch: Almost 2,000 miles of heat, dust, cholera microbes, impassable mountains, frostbite, hunger and fast moving rivers. Death was rampant on the Oregon Trail. Approximately one out of every tenth person who began the trip did not make it to their destination. These deaths were mostly in part to disease or accidents. In this month's History on Tap, green burial author, advocate, and educator, Elizabeth Fournier, aka 'the Green Reaper', explores Oregon's approaches to death and burial from the trail to the present day: ancient customs which have long since lapsed, others which have survived relatively unchanged, and new approaches such as eco-burials - and of course the impact of Covid-19 upon our way of dying.

Our July 12th Noir Nights features the recently restored Carol Reed masterpiece THE THIRD MAN starring Joseph Cotton, Alida Valli, Trevor Howard and Welles as Harry Lime! Holly Martins (Joseph Cotten), a writer of pulp Westerns, arrives in a bombed-out, post-war Vienna at the invitation of his childhood friend Harry Lime (Orson Welles) only to find him dead. Martins develops the ultimate conspiracy theory after learning of a “third man” present at the time of Harry’s death, butting up against interference from British police officer Major Calloway (Trevor Howard), and falling head-over-heels for Harry’s grief-stricken lover Anna (Alida Valli).
The June 14th Noir Nights film is John Huston’s 1941 adaptation of Dashiell Hammett’s THE MALTESE FALCON! Bogie plays detective Sam Spade who is caught in a frantic search for the jeweled falcon of Malta and his partner’s killer. His pursuit leads him to a group of desperate individuals including Mary Astor, Sydney Greenstreet and a never creepier Peter Lorre, all who also want the bird for their own purposes.

Join the Kiggins' very own Denton Delinquents as they Time Warp their way across our stage every 4th Saturday (usually) for the mother of all cult classics, THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW! How does the THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW WORK? Well, we're glad you asked! The Rocky Horror Picture Show is shown on the screen and the Delinquents perform along with the movie, complete with costuming, make up, props, and all your favorite dance numbers! The audience joins in by yelling call back lines and throwing specified props at particular times during the movie*. You can also dance along with the Time Warp if you know it! Once seated, be ready for a crazy time! Our Emcee will initiate you into the wonderful world of Rocky through Rocky virgin "sacrifice", share the rules with you, and give you some helpful hints about the movie. Some people dress up, some don't, it gives you an excuse to wear whatever you want no matter what it is, though lingerie, anything sexy, extravagant costumes, cross dressing or dressing up like your favorite character, or even along with a theme night (if our cast is having one) is highly encouraged! Bring your friends, tighten your corsets, and loosen your libidos . . . this will be a show too fantastic to miss! We do allow all ages to our show but please remember the film is rated "R". The pre-show and call backs can get a risque, so Parental Discretion Advised. *Sorry no outside props allowed, but approved prop bags are for sale by our lovely usherette before each show.
