West Seattle Friday: Authors; theater; music; karaoke; more!

That’s West Seattle from the air at night, courtesy of Michael Brophy, who shared the photo via the WSB Facebook page last night. (Side note: We are thrilled that 14,600+ people “like” the FB page, but please note that it’s one of our side channels – the website here is the ONLY place to find all the news we report, plus the continuously updated Event Calendar, Forum discussions, lost/found pets, the restaurant guide, traffic, weather, etc.!) And from the aforementioned calendar:

MESSIAH SING-AND-PLAY-ALONG: Tonight’s the night for the “Messiah” singalong/play-along (it was really meant to be an Easter-season work!) at West Side Presbyterian Church, doors at 6, music at 7, all welcome, bring a vocal score if you have one. Details in our recent preview. (3601 California SW)

LAFAYETTE PLAY Tonight and tomorrow, cheer for young performers in Lafayette Elementary‘s annual production! Here’s the announcement and a photo we received:

Lafayette Elementary will present its school play, Aesop’s Fables, (continuing tonight and tomorrow) at 7 p.m. at the Chief Sealth International High School auditorium.

It’s a modern adaptation of 12 of Aesop’s beloved stories, plus some added songs, performed by 80 third-, fourth-, and fifth-graders. Doors open at 6:30, and the public is welcome. No admission fee, but there will be a donation box at the door to help with the costs of the production.

    Another option for tonight is a great Handbell concert this evening at Tibbetts Methodist featuring Bells of the Sound at 7:30 pm. The concert is entitled “Road Trip” and features music from around the country.

      Thanks, Shirley! I don’t believe that was sent in for our calendar, or we would have featured it. – Tracy
