Miracle on 34th Street: A Live Radio Play @ Kenyon Hall
Dec 11 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Twelfth Night Productions (TNP) is proud to present The Lux Radio Theater version of the classic 1947 film Miracle on 34th Street. TNP’s Holiday Radio plays have become an annual tradition for community members seeking to revel in holiday cheer with friends and family. Previous radio show productions have included It’s A Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol.

The radio play is based on the holiday movie favorite of the same name and will be presented as a live 1940’s radio broadcast. Miracle on 34th Street tells the timeless story of an old man who calls himself Kris Kringle and is hired as the Macy’s department store Santa. His claim to be the real Santa Claus becomes a court case and a young child’s belief could make all the difference. “Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to.”

Our cast of talented Radio players also includes our incredible Foley (sound effects) actors and the one-of-a-kind 1929 Wurlitzer Pipe Organ.

“If you close your eyes during this production you won’t miss a beat because all of the components – the sound effects, the organ, the commercials, and the Mistletones – work together successfully to recreate the live radio experience of the 1940’s and 50’s.” Drama in the Hood.

This live radio show will be performed at historic Kenyon Hall, one of West Seattle’s favorite venues, December 9, 10, 16 and 17 at 7:30 pm and December 11 and 18 at 3:00pm. Bring the family and make this a holiday tradition! Tickets are available online at Brown Paper Tickets, and at Kenyon Hall, 7904 35th Ave. SW, Seattle WA, an hour before the show on performance days. Prices are $18 for adults and $15 for students & seniors.

The Little Match Girl Passion @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
Dec 11 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

The Little Match Girl Passion
By David Lang

2008 Pulitzer Prize-winning choral work

December 11, 12 and 19 at 7:30 pm
December 22 at 10:30 pm

ArtsWest is pleased to announce THE LITTLE MATCH GIRL PASSION, David Lang’s 2008 Pulitzer Prize-winning choral work, coming to the ArtsWest stage for four evenings in December. Featuring four of Seattle’s most critically acclaimed voices – John Coons, Lisa Mandelkorn, Randy Scholtz, and Jenny Shotwell – and the hip-hop choreography of UJ Mangune, this limited engagement is an intimate, unforgettable evening of music and dance.

Modeled after Bach’s Saint Matthew Passion, THE LITTLE MATCH GIRL PASSION is a modern, minimalist retelling of Hans Christian Anderson’s tragic winter fairy tale. With only matches to keep her warm, a poor young girl, afraid to go home to her abusive father, takes shelter in an alley on a cold winter night. As she strikes each match, wonderful visions appear: when the last match is struck, the girl discovers that the end of her suffering – and her life – is near.

A special 2-show combo is available to see THE LITTLE MATCH GIRL PASSION and PETER AND THE STARCATCHER, ArtsWest’s winter musical about the early adventures of Peter Pan, on the two nights featuring performances of both productions (Monday, December 11 & Thursday, December 22). Purchasers of the 2-show combo will gain admission to both productions for only $60.

Tickets are available online at or at the Box Office: 206-938-0339.

Tickets: General Admission: $30.00 | 2-show combo with Peter and the Starcatcher on Demeber 11 & 22: $60.00

When starcatcher-in-training Molly meets an orphan boy longing for a home, they embark on the adventure of a lifetime to protect a precious cargo. In this Tony Award-winning, magical and hilarious play with music, a dozen brilliant actors play more than 100 unforgettable characters. Peter and the Starcatcher uses ingenious stagecraft and the limitless possibilities of imagination to finally reveal the origins of Peter Pan, Wendy, the Lost Boys, their piratical nemesis, Captain Hook – and a far-off place known as Neverland.

Note: Peter and the Starcatcher is suitable for younger audiences but most enjoyable for ages 10 and up.
