Bryan Willis's Bootleg

A one night only reading of Bryan Willis's Bootleg

Tacoma Little Theatre's Off the Shelf program is excited to present Bryan Willis’ Bootleg, directed by Erin Chanfrau and featuring a powerhouse of Tacoma actors. 

A shrewd and authentic glimpse into the lives of everyday people trying to get by in pohibition. Bootleg is set in 1927, the first year in the U.S. when more people lived in an urban setting than a rural one. It was an era of change — not just the Volstead Act (of prohibition), but women had gotten the vote, and the Seattle mayor at the time was a woman. Fashions were changing, the way people could make a living. It was post-World War I, people were aware of the greater world. Cars traveled faster, which was a big deal if you were moonshining.

Bootleg features the talents of: Mark Peterson as Barlow, Kate Arvin as Boots, Luke Amundson as Shimmy Johnson, Jordan Richards  as Verneil, and Brian S. Lewis as Smith.

Tickets for the June 13, 2019 performance at 7:30pm are $10.00 for non TLT Members, and FREE for those who are members. Tickets may be purchased online by clicking here, or by calling our Box Office at (253) 272-2281.


We know that there is a tremendous amount of wonderful theatre that deserves to be heard but sometimes just doesn’t get an opportunity. With “Off the Shelf”, local directors and actors will be bringing some scripts to life that we hope you will find entertaining, challenging and educational to our stage. We hope that you’ll sit back and enjoy an evening of theatre. You never know, you might see one of these shows on our mainstage in the future.
