Gratitude is a feeling of thankfulness and appreciation. For some it may be challenging to find things to be grateful for during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially around the holiday season. We want to be able to enjoy gatherings with our family and friends. We want to be able to attend holiday festivities, including Whidbey Playhouse productions. We want life to go back to what we knew as normal.
As a non profit theater we rely on your attendance to shows as well as your generous contributions through out the year. Covid19 has been especially hard on theaters across the country; smaller community theaters like ours hit the hardest. We ask that you consider us as part of your Christmas list this year.
We are participating in #givingtuesday ~ This is an unparalleled global day of unity to increase grassroots generosity, citizen engagement, plus corporate and individual giving. As we are all in this together, during one 24-hour period you can give, reconnect, and support our community while we prepare for the “new normal.”
#givingtuesday is December 1. Mark your calendars!

Delany Sisters: Having Our Say
Presented by Whidbey Playhouse as a Multi-Camera Virtual Presentation
February 26 & 27
THE STORY: HAVING OUR SAY opens as 103-year-old Sadie Delany and 101-year-old Bessie Delany welcome us into their Mount Vernon, New York, home. As they prepare a celebratory dinner in remembrance of their father’s birthday, they take us on a remarkable journey through the last hundred years of our nation’s history, recounting a fascinating series of events and anecdotes drawn from their rich family history and careers as pioneering African-American professionals. Their story is not simply African-American history or women’s history. It is our history, told through the eyes of two unforgettable women as they look not only into the past, but also ahead into the twenty-first century.
“The daughters of a minister born in slavery and a brilliant woman of mixed ancestry, the story of the Delany sisters begins in Reconstruction and progresses through the rise of Jim Crow, two world wars, the triumphs of black culture during the Harlem Renaissance, the civil and women’s rights movements, up to the present…Mann has staged the three relatively brief acts with a keen eye for the jigsaw fit that a hundred years of living together would bring.” —Variety. “The most provocative and entertaining family play to reach Broadway in a long time…” —NY Times. “…when the show is over, you want it to go on and on…HAVING OUR SAY is a must for audiences of all races.” —BackStage. “In fact, this must be the nicest show and inspirational pep rally in town…what a life these women have led, and how lovely to hear about America’s real history from witnesses who are such good company. The Delany sisters may seem too good to be true, but here they are.” —NY Newsday. “Do see HAVING OUR SAY—it is a window on a world now lost, full of love, a little pain and a wondrous deal of hope.” —NY Post.
Presented virtually February 26 & 27, 2021
