Page to Screen: the Tacoma Little Theatre

While we may not be able to enjoy a live theatrical performance right now, Tacoma Little Theatre is finding creative ways to continue to perform! Tacoma Little Theatre’s Page to Screen program welcomes local playwrights to have their scripts performed in a virtual stage reading.

On Saturday, October 3, Tacoma Little Theatre is excited to present James A. Gilletti’s The Final Assignment, directed by Pug Bujeaud and featuring some of the Pacific Northwest’s finest actors.

The Final Assignment follows a young college graduate on the last day of his internship with a radio station. When a fellow reporter no-shows at the last minute, the intern gets tapped for a mobile news unit post at the corner of Elm and Houston Street as President Kennedy’s motorcade passes the Texas Schoolbook Depository. What follows is a sequence of events that will push this young man’s capabilities to their limits, force him to confront his greatest fear, and change his life irreversibly. 

The Final Assignment features the various talents of Joel Thomas, Mason Quinn, W. Scott Pinkston, Randy Clark, Steve Tarry, Ronnie Allen, Gretchen Boyt, Frank Roberts, Paul Richter, Jess Allan, and James A. Gilletti.

This event will be live-streamed for free on October 3, 2020 at 7:00pm, so be sure not to miss it! To watch the performance or to donate, join the live-stream by visiting, or by following the link to YouTube (
