DePrez brings comedy, storytelling to OTA stage
One-night show on 9/21 brings laughs, disability to the stage
Olympic Theatre Arts is hosting a rare solo performance this week by Dan DePrez, an actor, songwriter, comedian, and writer from Portland, Ore., who has lived in Sequim since 2012.
DePrez, a former longtime stand-up comedian, said his show, set for 7 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21, will run across a variety of performance styles and tones.
“I’ll be performing some music, which will be a mix of funny and serious,” DePrez said.
“I’ll also be doing some stand-up, and some storytelling that will also be serious and hopefully some parts people find funny.
“It’s a fun mix for me, hopefully the audience appreciate the spectrum.”
Tickets for DePrez’s show at OTA, 414 N. Sequim Ave., are $15 and are available by calling the theater at 360-683-7326. At the time of writing, tickets were not available on OTA’s website.
DePrez, whom peers call a “pioneer” of the comedy scene in Portland in the 1980s, was diagnosed with myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) in 2002.
Because of his condition, more commonly known in the U.S. as “chronic fatigue syndrome,” he has been disabled since then.
