NOTE: Village Theatre produces out of two cities: ISSAQUAH (where housing, rehearsal and the majority of performances are) which is about 30 minutes east of Seattle, and EVERETT (where the final weeks of the run perform) which is between 45-60 minutes north of Seattle. A car is provided the entire time and gas is provided for the drive from Issaquah to Everett which can be anywhere from 45-90 minutes depending on traffic. Anytime during rush hour will likely be 90 minutes. Given the performance schedule, there are only 6 times a rush hour drive will happen. (9 if extended) We always like to call this out because while it is a haul of a drive it is indeed a reality.
