This document is the program created for the Linfield College Theatre’s November 2012 production of Kickin’ Sand and Tellin’ Lies by Jackson B. Miller and Christopher Forrer. The play was created as part of the Launching through the Surf: The Dory Fleet of Pacific City project, which focuses on the historical and contemporary role of dory fishers and dories in the life of the coastal village of Pacific City, Oregon. Inspired by stories from the project interviews, the play is a fictional work.

The program provides details related to the production, including a cast list and short actor biographies, listings of the design and production staff, as well as building and running crew members. Readers will find brief information about the history of the Pacific City Dory Fleet and the Launching through the Surf project, a glossary of dory fishing terms included in the play, the names of dory fishers interviewed through October 2012, and other items.

Launching through the Surf: The Dory Fleet of Pacific City is a collaborative project involving the Linfield College Department of Theatre and Communication Arts, the Jereld R. Nicholson Library, the Linfield Center for the Northwest, the Pacific City Arts Association, and the Pacific City Dorymen’s Association. The collaborators and project partners thank Dave Larkins of Pacific City, who has served as the Dorymen’s Association liaison for the project, their Linfield colleagues who have provided assistance, and the individuals who graciously shared their stories and memorabilia for inclusion in this historical collection.

Support for the project has been provided in part by the following: two grants from the Keck Community Engaged Research to Classroom Program from the Linfield Center for the Northwest, five Linfield College Summer Student-Faculty Collaborative Research Grants, an Arts Build Communities Grant from the Oregon Arts Commission, grants from the Yamhill County Cultural Coalition and the Tillamook County Cultural Coalition, a Cultural Development Grant from the Oregon Cultural Trust, and generous gifts from Nancy Whelan and an anonymous individual donor. Rhianna Bennett, Mary Beth Jones, Gabrielle Leif, and Alicia Schnell have assisted with preparation of materials for the archives.
