One Day in Cascadia: The Nisqually Earthquake Stories Performance

Attention community members (especially you, CWU freshmen) the Theatre Arts Department is bringing a rad live performance of the Nisqually earthquake stories to CWU this Thursday, Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m. in the Student Union and Recreation Center (SURC) Theatre.

As part of the First Year Experience (FYE) and directed by Jay Ball and the students of Central Theatre Ensemble, “One Day in Cascadia” combines a stage reading of stories from the earthquake with interviews, research materials and additions from social media shared during the quake to create a one of a kind stage experience.

Washington’s largest quake

I don’t know if you remember where you were when the Nisqually earthquake struck. I definitely wasn’t learning how to play patty cake in 5th grade during recess, I was probably  rescuing some puppies from a burning building or something.

Puppies aside, the Nisqually quake, sometimes referred to as “The Ash Wednesday Earthquake” was the largest recorded earthquake in Washington State history.


According to Wikipedia, the earthquake was so large that tremors could be felt as far away as Oregon and Vancouver B.C. While no deaths were recorded, property damage was left all throughout Seattle, Olympia and Washington State.

A unique experience

The “One Day in Cascadia: The Nisqually Earthquake Stories” will bring stories and first hand accounts of the earthquake to audiences, as well as postings from social media at the time the tremors were felt.


Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn about Washington’s largest recorded earthquake. An FYE discussion will follow the performance.
