Fort Lewis College Theater staged "We Are The Source," in 2011 to honor the centennial anniversary of Fort Lewis College's founding in 1911.

Our creative process utilized contemporary dance, painting, poetry, and music made by our community of students and alumni in response to the story of Fort Lewis College. An original creation, the work rested upon the collaboration of multiple stakeholders in the Fort Lewis College experience, including local historians, such as author Fred Wildfang, and FLC alumni, whose experiences were condensed into soliloquies, and paintings by a community artist. 
Fort Lewis College Theatre also leaned heavily on participation by the Center of Southwest Studies, Fort Lewis College Writing Program, Fort Lewis College Native American Center, Fort Lewis College Department of Music, Fort Lewis College Athletics, El Centro de Muchos Colores, and the Associated Students of Fort Lewis College in order to create an inclusive work referencing as many voices and contributors to our history as possible.

In 1926, radium was a miracle cure, French physicist Madame Curie an international celebrity, and luminous watches the latest rage until the girls who painted them began to fall ill with a mysterious disease. Inspired by a true story, Radium Girls illustrated the difficulties of gender and  class, while  offering a wry, unflinching look at the  American obsession with health, wealth, and the commercialization of science.

The privileged Argan is a homebound hypochondriac with every disease imaginable. Surrounded by lurking quacks who are only too happy to (mis)treat him; a money-grubbing wife and two headstrong daughters, Argan is miserable. Molière’s 17th century comedy gets an alternative approach re-imagined by Guest Artist/Director Rima Miller. Created with original music and requisite bawdiness.
