Dukesbay Theater

Our Home is in the heart of Downtown Tacoma’s Theater District

The Dukesbay Theater is not just for use by Dukesbay Productions. This performance venue will be available for rent to other independent theatre companies who are based in the Greater Tacoma area.

We want independent and “fringe” theatre to grow and thrive in our community. We hope the Dukesbay Theater can be a catalyst for that to happen.

Dukesbay Productions was founded in 2011 by Tacoma theatre artists Randy Clark and Aya Hashiguchi Clark. Randy has been active in the Tacoma theatre scene as an actor and director since the 1970s. His work has been seen at Lakewood Playhouse, Tacoma Little Theatre and Theatre NW. Aya has appeared at several Seattle/Tacoma theaters, and served as producer for
8 plays and a Playwrights Festival for Burien Actors Theatre. She currently serves on the Board of Directors for Tacoma Little Theatre.
Dukesbay Productions’ mission is to promote independent theatre in Tacoma and to showcase the works of theatre artists of all ethnicities.

Taking Leave features a multiracial cast that includes Kerry Bringman, Mykahla George,
Pamela Roza Hayes, Cara Hazzard, Jasmine Jaqua and W. Scott Pinkston. Understudies
are John Dugaw and Marsha Walner.
