      January 22 – February 15, 2015
      Northwest Premiere, 2012 Obie Award Winner, 2012 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, 2013 Pulitzer-Prize nominee

      A story of communication, unspoken bonds, and tenderness with jagged edges, 4000 Miles brings together a 21 year old grandson and his 91 year old feisty, fiercely independent grandmother. Through their days spent together in her New York apartment, we realize that Leo is not there to comfort his grandma during her lonely years, but instead he is the one in need of her straight-forward no-nonsense brand of love. That is…when she has her teeth in and her hearing aid turned on.

      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      Tickets:
      Center Adults – $34.50 Side Adults – $30.00

      January 22 – February 15, 2015
      Northwest Premiere, 2012 Obie Award Winner, 2012 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, 2013 Pulitzer-Prize nominee

      A story of communication, unspoken bonds, and tenderness with jagged edges, 4000 Miles brings together a 21 year old grandson and his 91 year old feisty, fiercely independent grandmother. Through their days spent together in her New York apartment, we realize that Leo is not there to comfort his grandma during her lonely years, but instead he is the one in need of her straight-forward no-nonsense brand of love. That is…when she has her teeth in and her hearing aid turned on.

      Performances: January 22 – February 15
      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      Tickets:
      Center Adults – $34.50 Side Adults – $30.00

      Help plant, tend, weed and harvest green leafy crops, berries, fruiting trees and other plants during this growing season at our huge urban garden and orchard! It’s time to prune trees and berry bushes, and develop ideal individual soil preparations for each crop to be planted.

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

      5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      “Words, Writers & West Seattle” Presents World-Recognized Author Theresa McCormick.

      February 6th “Book Talk” Event sponsored by Southwest Seattle Historical Society

      West Seattle author Theresa McCormick, Ed.D. has published “A Far Cry From Here: Growing Up and Out of Fundamentalism” (University Book Store Press, 2014) and will share her book and experiences with the public at a FREE presentation on Friday, February 6th, from 5 to 7pm at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.

      In this transformative memoir, overlapping threads about whiteness, race and gender, and the power of fundamentalist faith to yield security, yet limit growth, weave throughout the stories making this a timely, inspiring, and compelling memoir. McCormick’s life story focuses on stories of her whitewashed girlhood, growing up in rural Texas in a fundamentalist Christian family with all their complex relationships, limitations and strengths.

      These stories take the reader on her journey from a restrictive, limiting upbringing, through the separation from her family and their oppressive religion, and onto the path of discovery of her own spiritual life. This transformation includes her journey into a feminist activist womanhood as a professor, writer and artist. Currently writing creative nonfiction, McCormick has been honored for lifelong dedication and leadership and recognized by Worldwide Who’s Who for Excellence in Education and Art. Her website is: www.theresamccormick.com, and she may be reached at: theresamcco@comcast.net.

      Words, Writers & West Seattle’s next FIRST FRIDAY book talk is scheduled for March 6th and will feature Barbara Howett and “Ladies of the Borabudur” Additional information on future presentations can be obtained by calling Dora-Faye Hendricks, chair, Words, Writers & West Seattle, by phone at 206-280-9983, or by e-mail at: Dora-Faye@comcast.net.

      January 22 – February 15, 2015
      Northwest Premiere, 2012 Obie Award Winner, 2012 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, 2013 Pulitzer-Prize nominee

      A story of communication, unspoken bonds, and tenderness with jagged edges, 4000 Miles brings together a 21 year old grandson and his 91 year old feisty, fiercely independent grandmother. Through their days spent together in her New York apartment, we realize that Leo is not there to comfort his grandma during her lonely years, but instead he is the one in need of her straight-forward no-nonsense brand of love. That is…when she has her teeth in and her hearing aid turned on.

      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

    5. Feet First 3rd Annual Stairway Walks Day @ West Seattle
      10:00 am – 12:00 pm

      On Saturday, February 7, 2015 from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm, join Feet First for Stairway Walks Day. Urban explorers are invited to join one of free, guided neighborhood walks featuring outdoor stairways in West Seattle. Space is limited to 35 people per walk. Please RSVP in advance at www.feetfirst.org or http://stairwaywalksday2015.bpt.me/ (when the signup period opens).

      On these stairway routes you’ll discover gems you wouldn’t see otherwise. Colorful mosaics, serene pocket parks, restored creeks and gorgeous home are quietly hidden amid these stairway passages. Come see the sights and learn the stories that only Seattle stairways can tell… and only your feet can take you!

      All proceeds for this event help support Feet First’s mission to ensure all communities across Washington are walkable.

      Suggested donations start at $10, with free admission for children under 18.
      Pay what you wish – no one will be turned away from joining in the fun.

      RESERVE YOUR SPOT TODAY:
      http://cts.vresp.com/c/?FeetFirst/8720108786/cd831fc4da/d580c38f0f

      The stairs, many of them more than 100 years old, form a network of “scenic byways” for neighborhood discovery – a priceless asset for outdoor fun, fitness and health. The stairway routes featured on Stairway Walks Day are from Cathy and Jake Jaramillo’s book Seattle Stairway Walks: An Up-and-Down Guide to City Neighborhoods. The book is intended to help urban adventurers discover and appreciate the beautiful greenspaces, history, art and architecture that make up the vivid fabric of our neighborhoods.

      According to author and Feet First Neighborhood Walking Ambassador Cathy Jaramillo, “Stairways are truly the scenic byways to neighborhoods, and we’re always curious about what’s at the top – or the bottom. They get you to, and between, places you’d probably never know about otherwise. We’re excited about celebrating them with so many people on Stairway Walks Day!”

      More about Feet First: Since 2001, Feet First has worked to ensure that all communities in Washington are walkable. Walking is a vital transportation mode that connects communities, reduces pollution, improves health and physical fitness, and allows people to explore their natural environment.

      4000 Miles
      By Amy Herzog

      January 22 – February 15, 2015
      Northwest Premiere, 2012 Obie Award Winner, 2012 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, 2013 Pulitzer-Prize nominee

      A story of communication, unspoken bonds, and tenderness with jagged edges, 4000 Miles brings together a 21 year old grandson and his 91 year old feisty, fiercely independent grandmother. Through their days spent together in her New York apartment, we realize that Leo is not there to comfort his grandma during her lonely years, but instead he is the one in need of her straight-forward no-nonsense brand of love. That is…when she has her teeth in and her hearing aid turned on.

      Performances: January 22 – February 15
      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      Tickets:
      Center Adults – $34.50 Side Adults – $30.00

      Book Description: In 1959 Florence Green, a kindhearted widow with a small inheritance, risks everything to open a bookshop – the only bookshop – in the seaside town of Hardborough. By making a success of a business so impractical, she invites the hostility of the town’s less prosperous shopkeepers. By daring to enlarge her neighbors’ lives, she crosses Mrs. Gamart, the local arts doyenne. Florence’s warehouse leaks, her cellar seeps, and the shop is apparently haunted. Only too late does she begin to suspect the truth: a town that lacks a bookshop isn’t always a town that wants one.

We do it all wrong with flattering sound systems, songs that you actually want to sing but can’t find anywhere, and magical song slips that self destruct if “grease megamix” is written on them.”

      9:00 am – 8:00 pm

      On February 11th from 9 am – 8 pm, South Seattle College (WSB sponsor) will host a free F.A.F.S.A. (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) workshop for students and community members interested in learning more about how to pay for college.

      The event is part of a statewide initiative administered by the Washington Student Achievement council called “College Goal in Washington,” that is designed to increase low income, first generation, and underrepresented students’ completion of the F.A.F.S.A. Financial aid experts from South will be onsite to work individually with students and families and answer questions about how to pay for college and how to access financial aid successfully. Students who are ineligible for the F.A.F.S.A. due to citizenship status may be eligible to file the Washington Application for State Financial Aid (W.A.S.F.A.) to help them access other financial resources that will help them pay for college.

      Last year, Washington State was first among all 34 College Goal Sunday states, serving 2,421 potential F.A.F.S.A. filers. This is South Seattle College’s first year participating in this campaign. In addition to receiving help with their F.A.F.S.A. forms, representatives from Student Outreach will also be on-hand to offer guided tours of South’s campus.

      For more information about the event, please contact Lyanne O’Connell, Financial Literacy Specialist, at 206.934.5220, or by email at: Lyanne.oconnell@seattlecolleges.edu. For more information about the statewide and national campaigns, please contact Anna Batie, College Goal Washington State Coordinator, at 360-753-7856 or annab@wsac.wa.gov.

Through their days spent together in her New York apartment, we realize that Leo is not there to comfort his grandma during her lonely years, but instead he is the one in need of her straight-forward no-nonsense brand of love. That is…when she has her teeth in and her hearing aid turned on.

      Help plant, tend, weed and harvest green leafy crops, berries, fruiting trees and other plants during this growing season at our huge urban garden and orchard! It’s time to prune trees and berry bushes, and develop ideal individual soil preparations for each crop to be planted.

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

      January 22 – February 15, 2015
      Northwest Premiere, 2012 Obie Award Winner, 2012 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, 2013 Pulitzer-Prize nominee

      A story of communication, unspoken bonds, and tenderness with jagged edges, 4000 Miles brings together a 21 year old grandson and his 91 year old feisty, fiercely independent grandmother. Through their days spent together in her New York apartment, we realize that Leo is not there to comfort his grandma during her lonely years, but instead he is the one in need of her straight-forward no-nonsense brand of love. That is…when she has her teeth in and her hearing aid turned on.

Sunday worship is at 8:00 and 10:15 am, with Christian Formation classes at 10:00 am. We invite you and all whom you love, to “Come as you are! Explore, Connect, and Share.” Check our website at: www.saintjohnonline.org or visit us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/SJBWestSeattle.

      *Journey Foursquare Church – is a warmly welcoming congregation of Jesus-followers who heed the words of St. Francis of Assisi “Preach the Gospel – using words only if necessary”.

We have a large outreach to the homeless population of West Seattle… Sunday service is 6 PM held in the fellowship of our dear friends at St. John The Baptist Episcopal Church – enter through the doors on the southeast corner of 42nd Ave & SW Hanford SW. 206/890-8110.

      unique expectations and gifts that each person brings and are united in the belief that God is still speaking and that loving one another makes a difference. Worship and church school at 10 am; robust music ministry. www.fauntleroyucc.org; 206-932-5600.

      At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery (WSB sponsor):

      4000 Miles
      By Amy Herzog
      Directed by Mathew Wright

      January 22 – February 15, 2015
      Northwest Premiere, 2012 Obie Award Winner, 2012 New York Times Outstanding Playwright Award, 2013 Pulitzer-Prize nominee

      A story of communication, unspoken bonds, and tenderness with jagged edges, 4000 Miles brings together a 21 year old grandson and his 91 year old feisty, fiercely independent grandmother. Through their days spent together in her New York apartment, we realize that Leo is not there to comfort his grandma during her lonely years, but instead he is the one in need of her straight-forward no-nonsense brand of love. That is…when she has her teeth in and her hearing aid turned on.

      Performances: January 22 – February 15
      Wednesdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm, Sundays at 3 pm

      Tickets:
      Center Adults – $34.50 Side Adults – $30.00
      Center Seniors – $31.00 Side Seniors – $30.00

      Help plant, tend, weed and harvest green leafy crops, berries, fruiting trees and other plants during this growing season at our huge urban garden and orchard! It’s time to prune trees and berry bushes, and develop ideal individual soil preparations for each crop to be planted.

      Questions on urban gardening, permaculture techniques, or your own problem plants are our specialty and are more than welcome! We hope to see you there! The Community Orchard of West Seattle is located at the east end of the parking lot adjacent to the Horticulture Center, north end of the campus at South Seattle Community College.

      What is Community Orchard of West Seattle?

      Community Orchard of West Seattle (COWS) provides a home-scale model that demonstrates how much food can be grown on a city-sized lot. Our produce goes to our volunteers, neighbors and local food security programs while we provide a venue for public agricultural education and community gathering. Using permaculture and organic growing principles, COWS demonstrates several different kinds of non-standard orchard techniques and garden configurations – most of which are based on no-till, polyculture, low-maintenance sustainable food production strategies.

    14. Twelfth Night Productions presents: Godspell @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
      7:30 pm – 8:30 pm

      Twelfth Night Productions presents “Godspell” at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center:

      Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from 3-time Grammy and Academy Award winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children Of Eden); and it took the world by storm. A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs ranging in style from pop to vaudeville is employed as the story of Jesus’s life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’s messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to life.

      Godspell will be presented at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center February 20, 21, 27 and 28 at 7:30 pm and February 22 and March 1 at 3:00 pm. Tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for students and seniors.

      You can purchase tickets online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1155622 at the door up to an hour before show-time.

      *The Episcopal Church of St. John the Baptist was established in West Seattle in 1892, for a “broad-minded and liberal churchmanship, which should not only develop the spiritual side of life, but also encourage the social welfare in the most thoughtful and progressive minds of this community.” Today, the people of St. John’s continue to strive to live into this statement of purpose through such programs as our Just Garden Project to provide fresh produce for area food banks, feeding the hungry at Nicklesville and with the Community Meals program and building for the educational needs of students in the Mulundi Village in Kenya.

    8. Twelfth Night Productions presents: Godspell @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
      3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

      Twelfth Night Productions presents “Godspell” at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center:

      Godspell was the first major musical theatre offering from 3-time Grammy and Academy Award winner Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Pippin, Children Of Eden); and it took the world by storm. A small group of people help Jesus Christ tell different parables by using a wide variety of games, storytelling techniques, and hefty dose of comic timing. An eclectic blend of songs ranging in style from pop to vaudeville is employed as the story of Jesus’s life dances across the stage. Dissolving hauntingly into the Last Supper and the Crucifixion, Jesus’s messages of kindness, tolerance, and love come vibrantly to life.

      Godspell will be presented at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center February 20, 21, 27 and 28 at 7:30 pm and February 22 and March 1 at 3:00 pm. Tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for students and seniors.

      You can purchase tickets online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/1155622 at the door up to an hour before show-time.
