‘The Pajama Game’ comes to Washougal

‘The Pajama Game’ will open the doors to the Sleep Tite Pajama Factory.

The production features local actors.

It is about Sid, the handsome new manager, who runs afoul of the feisty and headstrong Babe, leader of the Union Grievance Committee.

Their dispute over a seven-and-a-half cent raise is complicated by a budding romance, which parallels the ups and downs of the labor/ management negotiations while turning the workplace into a the ideal musical comedy background.

The production features familiar Broadway pop standards of the 1950s including “Steam Heat”, “Hey There” and “Hernando’s Hideaway.”

Tickets cost $12 for general admission; and $10 for youth 16 years old and senior citizens.

Tickets are available online at

There is also a matinee performance at 1 p.m. July 10.

The show was originally scheduled at the Washburn Performing Arts Center, but the closure of Washougal High in July means it will be performed at Heritage High School, 7825 N.E. 130th Ave, Vancouver.
