Okay, so first of all…Hi, thanks for being curious about You Belong Here. It’s a storytelling show. True stories. Funny and heartfelt. We can agree on that. I might be the one on stage, the one doing all the talking, but You Belong Here is actually a show that belongs to all of us, telling a story about trying to distract ourselves from reckoning with The Big Picture.

At one point in history, almost every major North American city boasted a Pantages theatre, a lavish affair that featured the best of touring theatre and Vaudeville. The empire of theatres was built, in name, by magnate Alexander Pantages, a Greek immigrant who had ostensibly struck it rich in the Klondike gold rush, and returned south able to fulfill his lifelong dream of being an artist. But…that wasn’t the whole story.

Terrific Tulip is a tan and white, eight-year-old Chihuahua who has been in our care since September 2018. Tulip was abandoned at Valley Animal Center. After her initial adoption, Tulip had a reaction to her vaccines which rendered her temporarily immobile; she is now unable to receive any additional vaccines.
