Shoreline actress and singer Candace Vance is appearing in the Taproot production of Man of La Mancha, which opens July 7 and runs through August 7 at the Taproot Theatre, 204 N 85th St in Greenwood.

Candace has appeared locally in productions at Book-It Repertory, Seattle Children's, and Repertory Actors Theatre. She and her husband Sam co-founded a theatre conservatory as well as a theatre company in Madrid, Spain, which produced a national tour of Romeo and Juliet with Candace in the lead role.

In Shoreline, they are involved with the Shoreline Covenant Church, where they created a youth performing arts ministry, Called Out.

Adored for its characters, music and theatricality — the original production took place on a thrust stage like Taproot’s with very little scenery — Man of La Mancha’s story and themes resonate with today's audiences.

Taproot Theatre’s production takes this large, Broadway musical and re-imagines it to leverage the theatre’s intimate space.

Experience Don Quixote’s impossible dream like never before with Taproot Theatre’s intimate new staging of Man of La Mancha. Featuring the story and songs of an immortal classic, this Tony Award-winning musical comes to the Taproot stage with fresh, acoustic arrangements. Don Quixote is mad... mad enough to dream an impossible dream while tilting after windmills with his trusty sidekick, Sancho Panza. Quixote’s romantic quest is as crazy as he is. But is his impossible dream madness or vision?
