‘Timothy Brock Returns to West Seattle with Music of the Silent Giants’ benefit for Admiral Theater mural restoration
Jul 25 @ 6:45 pm – 10:00 pm

Restoration of the art-deco underwater murals of West Seattle’s Historic Admiral Theater will get another boost this summer with a one-night presentation by a West Seattle native whose orchestral scores for classic movies of the pre-sound era have earned him the title of the “Silent Film Music Guru.”

The event is called “Timothy Brock Returns to West Seattle with Music of the Silent Giants.”

It will take place at 6:45 p.m. Tuesday, July 25, 2017, at the Historic Admiral Theater, 2343 California Ave. SW, sponsored by our historical society.

This exciting evening – to last more than three hours, with an intermission – will start with Timothy Brock being interviewed by his childhood friend, West Seattle’s Dave Beck, a host at KING-FM and longtime former KUOW-FM host.

Brock will reminisce with Beck about their West Seattle upbringing and discuss the fascinating process of scoring silent classics. (Brock earned the label of “Silent-Film Music Guru” from Vogue magazine in May 2016.)

Interspersed will be stills and clips from silent films that Brock has scored. Following an intermission, Brock will introduce the screening of the Charlie Chaplin feature “Modern Times,” for which Brock has restored and re-recorded the original 1936 Chaplin score.

Tickets are $20, and proceeds will go to the Historic Admiral Theater mural restoration led by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society. A VIP opportunity, to attend the presentation and visit one-on-one with Brock and Beck beforehand, will begin at 5:30 p.m. at the theater. VIP tickets are $100.

Advance ticket purchases are encouraged, as the event may sell out.
TO PURCHASE ADVANCE TICKETS, CLICK HERE.

Timothy Brock, who has long lived in Bologna, Italy, is internationally renowned for his orchestral scores for the movies of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton and many other silent film classics. Over 30 years, he has composed 27 original scores for silent films, and he has served as the film restorer for the Chaplin estate since 1998. Brock also conducts symphonies in live performances of his scores to accompany presentations of silent films all over the world.

This month Brock is making a rare return to his boyhood community, where, as a 10-year-old in the early 1970s, he watched organ-accompanied silent films at West Seattle’s beloved Granada Theater south of The Junction and drew the initial inspiration for his career, which he labels a “lifelong dream.” (The Granada was razed in 1977.)

Brock’s mother is Berlena Brock, former board member of our historical society.
TO PURCHASE ADVANCE TICKETS, CLICK HERE.

This unique presentation on July 25 will be the second event this summer to benefit the historical society’s fund to restore the auditorium murals of the Historic Admiral Theater. The first event, a screening of the local documentary “Legends of the Road,” drew 200 people to the theater and raised more than $5,000 for the fund.

The murals date to 1942, when the Portola Theater was converted and expanded to the Admiral Theater. They were covered by curtains when the theater was twinned in 1973 and uncovered as part of the theater’s recent renovation to four screens.

The Historic Admiral Theater became an official Seattle landmark in 1989, following a campaign led by the Southwest Seattle Historical Society.

Seattle City Council Positions 8, 9 candidates’ forum @ Highland Park Improvement Club
Jul 25 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

The Delridge Neighborhoods District Council, in partnership with the Highland Park Improvement Club will host a candidate forum for Seattle City Council Position 8 & 9 candidates on Tuesday, July 25th from 7-9 PM. This forum is intended to engage and inform the residents of the West Seattle Peninsula, who comprise roughly 1/7th of Seattle’s total voting population. This event is open to the public and the media.

The format is intentionally very simple – each candidate will be given 5 minutes and a microphone to present their platform. There will be no audience or panel questions during presentations, and once all presentations have finished candidates will be able to mingle with the audience. Snacks and non-alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase, and an area will be set aside for adults who are accompanied by children.

Who: Seattle City Council Position 8 and 9 candidates
What: Candidate forum – 5 minute presentation followed by mingling with prospective constituents
Where: Highland Park Improvement Club – 1116 SW Holden
Why: Because voters shouldn’t look at a ballot and say “I have no idea who this is”
When: Tuesday, July 25th, from 7-9 pm

Baby Ketten Karaoke on Tuesday nights starts at 9 pm at Skylark Café & Club. Details on Baby Ketten and songlists here. Free, ages 21+.

“I know, I know, karaoke is supposed to kinda suck. It is traditionally composed of bad sound, limited song choices, and frat boy margaritaville sing-alongs. 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.”

Camp Philosophy
This is the 3rd year of the Soccer Skills Camp. Modelled after our long-standing basketball skills camp, now in its 18th year, the philosophy of the camp is to provide a positive and fun learning experience to youth by exposing them to the fundamentals of soccer and life, including the values and qualities that we feel are necessary to be successful in these arenas.

The camp will focus on three pillars, 1) skill development, 2) teamwork and leadership, and 3) life values and traits. We at Chief Sealth feel that in order to truly be successful student-athletes we must work equally in all three areas.

About Us
The camp will be directed by long-time boys and girls Head Soccer Coach, Ron Johnson. Johnson, who was named Metro Sound Boys Coach of the Year in both 2012 and 2013, has been the Seahawks head coach for 20 seasons. He has taken the boys on to the WIAA 3A Metro and State tournament multiple times. On the girls side, he has been the head coach since the program began and has built the program into a league contender, as the 2013 girls team finished 3rd in the Metro Sound League.

Coaching
The camp will be led by both current and past members of the Chief Sealth boys and girls soccer teams. They will provide coaching by exposing campers to the fundamental skills of the game through proven coaching methods. Our camp does not guarantee success as a player, but it will expose campers to the ingredients necessary to becoming a skilled player and successful high school student-athlete.

Accommodations
Each camper will receive a camp t-shirt. Campers must provide their own lunch. It is recommended that each camper bring his/her own water bottle, as water stations will be available for fill-up. Campers should also dress appropriately and consider sunscreen as we will be outside the entirety of the camp. The camp is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

It is requested that campers NOT bring their own soccer ball.

They will provide coaching by exposing campers to the fundamental skills of the game through proven coaching methods. Our camp does not guarantee success as a player, but it will expose campers to the ingredients necessary to becoming a skilled player and successful high school student-athlete.

Accommodations
Each camper will receive a camp t-shirt. Campers must provide their own lunch. It is recommended that each camper bring his/her own water bottle, as water stations will be available for fill-up. Campers should also dress appropriately and consider sunscreen as we will be outside the entirety of the camp. The camp is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

It is requested that campers NOT bring their own soccer ball.

Here’s the registration form.

West Seattle Democratic Women: ‘Chasing Ice’ @ WS Golf Course
Jul 27 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Greetings Members, Supporters, and Friends of the West Seattle Democratic Women!

Summer is in full swing, and our next meeting will be an evening event, so if our daytime meetings conflict with your work schedules (or even if you come to the daytime meetings), we cordially invite you to make WSDW part of your summer by attending this meeting/social gathering! Since the specialty action work that our organization is currently focused on is Climate Change and Global Warming, this program will consist of the screening of CHASING ICE. This screening aligns with the work that our AEC (Awareness, Education, Climate Action) Committee has been immersed in for the past year-and-a-half; CHASING ICE is a beautifully shot, multiple-award-winning (including from Seattle Int’l Film Festival), critically and popularly acclaimed film that documents how global warming is impacting the planet. Here is the official trailer:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIZTMVNBjc

We meet at the West Seattle Golf Course on Thursday, July 27th.

There will not be a Pre-Meeting Discussion led by Theresa McCormick on this evening.

There will not be a Postcard-Writing Campaign on this evening.

Registration begins at 6:00 pm with dinner service beginning at 6:15pm.

CHASING ICE screens at 6:30 pm and runs 75 minutes.

There will be a short discussion after the film, with input from our AEC Committee members as well as from some of our legislators and representatives who would be able to offer some perspective on specific actions we can take to combat the effects of global warming.

Meeting will adjourn no later than 8:30 pm.

Dinner is $15 for WSDW members and $20 for non-members; if you do not want to order dinner, the room charge (which includes dessert and coffee/tea only) is $7.50

If you are involved with an organization, social network, church, or other group with a membership, please spread the word far and wide about this event by forwarding this invitation to any and all of your networks! We are expecting a good turnout and, additionally, I have invited quite a few of our legislators, representatives as well as those seeking office, so that attendees can have the opportunity to find out more about their platforms and the relevant work they are doing in support of the environment!

Please RSVP to me directly by emailing me at werdachel@aol.com. Be sure to indicate if you want to order dinner or just have dessert & coffee/tea. Since we have to arrange the number of food orders with the Golf Course in advance, I must have your RSVP no later than end-of-day, Monday, July 24th to guarantee your meal reservation.

Camp Philosophy
This is the 3rd year of the Soccer Skills Camp. Modelled after our long-standing basketball skills camp, now in its 18th year, the philosophy of the camp is to provide a positive and fun learning experience to youth by exposing them to the fundamentals of soccer and life, including the values and qualities that we feel are necessary to be successful in these arenas.

The camp will focus on three pillars, 1) skill development, 2) teamwork and leadership, and 3) life values and traits. We at Chief Sealth feel that in order to truly be successful student-athletes we must work equally in all three areas.

About Us
The camp will be directed by long-time boys and girls Head Soccer Coach, Ron Johnson. Johnson, who was named Metro Sound Boys Coach of the Year in both 2012 and 2013, has been the Seahawks head coach for 20 seasons. He has taken the boys on to the WIAA 3A Metro and State tournament multiple times. On the girls side, he has been the head coach since the program began and has built the program into a league contender, as the 2013 girls team finished 3rd in the Metro Sound League.

Coaching
The camp will be led by both current and past members of the Chief Sealth boys and girls soccer teams. They will provide coaching by exposing campers to the fundamental skills of the game through proven coaching methods. Our camp does not guarantee success as a player, but it will expose campers to the ingredients necessary to becoming a skilled player and successful high school student-athlete.

Accommodations
Each camper will receive a camp t-shirt. Campers must provide their own lunch. It is recommended that each camper bring his/her own water bottle, as water stations will be available for fill-up. Campers should also dress appropriately and consider sunscreen as we will be outside the entirety of the camp. The camp is not responsible for lost or stolen items.

It is requested that campers NOT bring their own soccer ball.

Director David Gassner served for several years as the Artistic Director at Theater Schmeater, where he directed the west coast premieres of Maria/Stuart and The American Pilot, the world premiere of Mamet Schmamet!, Kvetch, and The Mandrake. Other past directing projects include Dangerous Corner, Glengarry Glen Ross (twice!), To Kill a Mockingbird, Breaking the Code, Our Town, and two weekends with 14/48. As an actor, he’s appeared locally with Seattle Shakespeare Company/Wooden O, Seattle Public Theater, 14/48, Seattle Fringe Festival, and Theater Schmeater.

GreenStage, Seattle’s Shakespeare in the Park Company, will offer four plays this summer during its 29th year of performing free Shakespeare in Seattle-area parks. The calendar includes full-cast versions of Richard II, directed by Susannah Rose Woods, and of The Comedy of Errors, directed by David Gassner.

In addition, GreenStage will stage two “Backyard Bard” shows; abridged versions of plays running about an hour and using the same for actors in each for all roles. Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be directed by Erin Day.

A full schedule of performances and the cast and crew for each play are on our website. Participating companies are GreenStage, Seattle Shakespeare Company’s Wooden O, Last Leaf Productions, Theater Schmeater, The 14/48 Projects, Freehold Theatre, Jet City Improv, Young Shakespeare Workshop, and Shakespeare Northwest.

One Reel Announces Pianos in the Parks.

Founded by Laird Norton Wealth Management, 2017 marks the first year that local arts nonprofit One Reel is producing and programming Pianos in the Parks. “As a multi-disciplinary arts non-profit, I am excited that One Reel is able to spotlight visual arts, dance, comedy, poetry and of course music using the framework created by Laird Norton Wealth Management” said One Reel Executive Director Chris Weber, “What better way to discover your new favorite artist than around a piano in a beautiful public park.”

“We’re delighted to see Pianos in the Parks continue this summer under the management of One Reel,” said Erin Moyer, Managing Director of Marketing and Communications for Laird Norton Wealth Management. “Their lineup of innovative programming will help encourage even more people to get outside and discover our region’s parks through the power of music and art.”

Kicking off at 5 p.m. July 13 at 12th Avenue Arts, Pianos in the Parks Opening Night will feature performances by Tomo Nakayama, Lisa Bergman and a performance at the intersection of 11th and Pike as part of SDOT’s Pike People Street.

Each event will feature music performances by local favorites like Shendoah Davis and Tomo Nakayama, and classical performances with Yelena Balabanova, and KING FM’s Young Artist Award Finalists. For the aspiring young pianist you know, free youth piano lessons will be offered in the morning at each event. Other highlights include sixty-minute yoga classes centered around the piano, dance lessons and performances by ARC Dance, and Music Center of the Northwest’s Instrument Petting Zoo. And of course, it wouldn’t be Pianos in the Parks unless everyone got a chance to play, so each piano will be available for the public to play throughout the day.

Design and painting of the 2017 pianos begins on June 26 at Urban ArtWorks. Eleven artists will be working until July 12 to make a unique piano for each location.

Program highlights include performances by Shenandoah Davis, Vis-a-Vis Society, Lovecitylove, and Yelena Balabanova, plus free youth piano lessons, yoga, and more.

Greenstage 2017 Outdoor Theater Festival: ‘Richard II’ (free) @ Camp Long
Jul 29 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

GreenStage summer season has several FREE outdoor performances in West Seattle. The season opens July 14, and runs through August 19, 2017.

Shakespeare’s “Richard II” directed by Susannah Rose Woods:
July 29 @ 7:00 pm at Camp Long – West Seattle
Fri, Aug 4 @ 7:00 pm at Lincoln Park
Sun, Aug 6 @ 3:00 pm at Lincoln Park

Aug 6

GreenStage, Seattle’s Shakespeare in the Park Company, will offer four plays this summer during its 29th year of performing free Shakespeare in Seattle-area parks. The calendar includes full-cast versions of Richard II, directed by Susannah Rose Woods, and of The Comedy of Errors, directed by David Gassner.

In addition, GreenStage will stage two “Backyard Bard” shows; abridged versions of plays running about an hour and using the same for actors in each for all roles. Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be directed by Erin Day.

King Richard II has a short and troubled reign; he’s often indecisive and at other times abrupt and arbitrary, not always good ways to win friends and allies. His clumsy handling of a dispute between two Dukes, one his cousin, splits the kingdom and sets Richard on the path to downfall. It’s the first part of a tetralogy following Richard II and his immediate successors, Henry IV and Henry V.

Director Susannah Rose Woods is the the Founding Artistic Director of Island Shakespeare Festival. She has served as Artistic Director for three theatre companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and has worked across the country with both professional and youth theatre companies, including Marin Shakespeare Company, The Curtain Theatre, Shotgun Players, TheatreWorks, and, most recently, with Seven Stages Shakespeare Company in New Hampshire. She is a professional screenwriter and playwright as well as a published poet. She was awarded a commendation from Senator Barbara Boxer for her work with youth theatre and is the recipient of a number of awards for both her writing and directing, including the Elizabeth George Foundation Grant, Humanitarian Teacher of the Year Award, the Bay Area Critics Award, and a variety of national and international awards for her screenwriting.

A full schedule of performances and the cast and crew for each play are on our website. Participating companies are GreenStage, Seattle Shakespeare Company’s Wooden O, Last Leaf Productions, Theater Schmeater, The 14/48 Projects, Freehold Theatre, Jet City Improv, Young Shakespeare Workshop, and Shakespeare Northwest.

All dates, times, and locations subject to change.

One Reel announces Pianos in the Parks.

Founded by Laird Norton Wealth Management, 2017 marks the first year that local arts nonprofit One Reel is producing and programming Pianos in the Parks. “As a multi-disciplinary arts non-profit, I am excited that One Reel is able to spotlight visual arts, dance, comedy, poetry and of course music using the framework created by Laird Norton Wealth Management” said One Reel Executive Director Chris Weber, “What better way to discover your new favorite artist than around a piano in a beautiful public park.”

“We’re delighted to see Pianos in the Parks continue this summer under the management of One Reel,” said Erin Moyer, Managing Director of Marketing and Communications for Laird Norton Wealth Management. “Their lineup of innovative programming will help encourage even more people to get outside and discover our region’s parks through the power of music and art.”

Kicking off at 5 p.m. July 13 at 12th Avenue Arts, Pianos in the Parks Opening Night will feature performances by Tomo Nakayama, Lisa Bergman and a performance at the intersection of 11th and Pike as part of SDOT’s Pike People Street.

Each event will feature music performances by local favorites like Shendoah Davis and Tomo Nakayama, and classical performances with Yelena Balabanova, and KING FM’s Young Artist Award Finalists. For the aspiring young pianist you know, free youth piano lessons will be offered in the morning at each event.

The Bard’s comedy is as relevant as ever. At the center of this slapstick comedy involving two sets of identical twins separated at birth is a story of immigrants in a strange land facing expulsion and possible death at the hands of a tyrannical Duke.

Director David Gassner served for several years as the Artistic Director at Theater Schmeater, where he directed the west coast premieres of Maria/Stuart and The American Pilot, the world premiere of Mamet Schmamet!, Kvetch, and The Mandrake. Other past directing projects include Dangerous Corner, Glengarry Glen Ross (twice!), To Kill a Mockingbird, Breaking the Code, Our Town, and two weekends with 14/48. As an actor, he’s appeared locally with Seattle Shakespeare Company/Wooden O, Seattle Public Theater, 14/48, Seattle Fringe Festival, and Theater Schmeater.

GreenStage, Seattle’s Shakespeare in the Park Company, will offer four plays this summer during its 29th year of performing free Shakespeare in Seattle-area parks. The calendar includes full-cast versions of Richard II, directed by Susannah Rose Woods, and of The Comedy of Errors, directed by David Gassner.

In addition, GreenStage will stage two “Backyard Bard” shows; abridged versions of plays running about an hour and using the same for actors in each for all roles. Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be directed by Erin Day.

A full schedule of performances and the cast and crew for each play are on our website. Participating companies are GreenStage, Seattle Shakespeare Company’s Wooden O, Last Leaf Productions, Theater Schmeater, The 14/48 Projects, Freehold Theatre, Jet City Improv, Young Shakespeare Workshop, and Shakespeare Northwest.

July 29 @ 7:00 pm at Camp Long – West Seattle
Fri, Aug 4 @ 7:00 pm at Lincoln Park
Sun, Aug 6 @ 3:00 pm at Lincoln Park

GreenStage, Seattle’s Shakespeare in the Park Company, will offer four plays this summer during its 29th year of performing free Shakespeare in Seattle-area parks.

In addition, GreenStage will stage two “Backyard Bard” shows; abridged versions of plays running about an hour and using the same for actors in each for all roles. Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be directed by Erin Day.

King Richard II has a short and troubled reign; he’s often indecisive and at other times abrupt and arbitrary, not always good ways to win friends and allies. His clumsy handling of a dispute between two Dukes, one his cousin, splits the kingdom and sets Richard on the path to downfall. It’s the first part of a tetralogy following Richard II and his immediate successors, Henry IV and Henry V.

Director Susannah Rose Woods is the the Founding Artistic Director of Island Shakespeare Festival. She has served as Artistic Director for three theatre companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and has worked across the country with both professional and youth theatre companies, including Marin Shakespeare Company, The Curtain Theatre, Shotgun Players, TheatreWorks, and, most recently, with Seven Stages Shakespeare Company in New Hampshire. She is a professional screenwriter and playwright as well as a published poet. She was awarded a commendation from Senator Barbara Boxer for her work with youth theatre and is the recipient of a number of awards for both her writing and directing, including the Elizabeth George Foundation Grant, Humanitarian Teacher of the Year Award, the Bay Area Critics Award, and a variety of national and international awards for her screenwriting.

A full schedule of performances and the cast and crew for each play are on our website. Participating companies are GreenStage, Seattle Shakespeare Company’s Wooden O, Last Leaf Productions, Theater Schmeater, The 14/48 Projects, Freehold Theatre, Jet City Improv, Young Shakespeare Workshop, and Shakespeare Northwest.

The beginning of this volunteer event will include a brief weed ID education class. Learn about the different types of invasives, why they are harmful, and how to get rid of them. Combine knowledge with action as we work together to clear this beautiful space of harmful species that overtakes an area. Many of you might already have this experience in your own backyard!

There will be more events to come where we gradually transform and maintain Westcrest and make it a great public space for everyone to enjoy. Let us know of any questions, hope to see you out there!
PLEASE REGISTER HERE:

PARK: South parking lot off of SW Henderson St, next to the dog park.

Snippets from ‘Shrek’ @ Walk All Ways
Aug 5 @ 10:00 am – 10:30 am

Twelfth Night Productions will be flying the “Freak Flag” in the Alaska Junction on August 5th between 10am and 10:30 am. Join us as the cast performs a short snippet from one of the most popular songs in our upcoming production of SHREK THE MUSICAL. The cast will perform 30 seconds of “Freak Flag” in the middle of the intersection during a few “all walk” cycles at the corner of Alaska and California on August 5th.

More about the show: “Once upon a time, there was a little ogre named Shrek….” and thus begins the tale of an unlikely hero who finds himself on a life-changing journey alongside a wisecracking donkey and a feisty princess who resists her rescue. Throw in a short-tempered bad guy, a cookie with an attitude and over a dozen other fairy tale misfits, and you’ve got the kind of mess that calls for a real hero. Luckily, there’s one on hand… and his name is Shrek.

“SHREK THE MUSICAL is sweet and busy, nice and big, and, every so often, extremely lovable,” writes Newsday.

This production will be performed at West Seattle High School Theater, August 11, 12, 18 and 19 at 7:30 and August 13, 19 and 20 at 3:00. Tickets are available online at Brown Paper Tickets, and at West Seattle High School Theater, 3000 California Ave SW, an hour before the show on performance days.

If you know you are coming, please RSVP to me at litterleague@gmail.com and let me know how many adults to expect and how many kids (and ages), so that I get enough grabbers from the city.

On August 6 (Sunday), we will meet in the parking lot by the BECU ATM in front of Domino’s and the gas station. I will be there about 8:45, so come between then and 9:00. We work until 10:30, then gather back at the ATM for a photo of what we have collected and return the equipment.

Greenstage 2017 Outdoor Theater Festival: ‘Richard II’ (free) @ Lincoln Park
Aug 6 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

GreenStage summer season has several FREE outdoor performances in West Seattle. The season opens July 14, and runs through August 19, 2017.

Shakespeare’s “Richard II” directed by Susannah Rose Woods:
July 29 @ 7:00 pm at Camp Long – West Seattle
Fri, Aug 4 @ 7:00 pm at Lincoln Park
Sun, Aug 6 @ 3:00 pm at Lincoln Park

GreenStage, Seattle’s Shakespeare in the Park Company, will offer four plays this summer during its 29th year of performing free Shakespeare in Seattle-area parks. The calendar includes full-cast versions of Richard II, directed by Susannah Rose Woods, and of The Comedy of Errors, directed by David Gassner.

In addition, GreenStage will stage two “Backyard Bard” shows; abridged versions of plays running about an hour and using the same for actors in each for all roles. Hamlet and A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be directed by Erin Day.

King Richard II has a short and troubled reign; he’s often indecisive and at other times abrupt and arbitrary, not always good ways to win friends and allies. His clumsy handling of a dispute between two Dukes, one his cousin, splits the kingdom and sets Richard on the path to downfall. It’s the first part of a tetralogy following Richard II and his immediate successors, Henry IV and Henry V.

Director Susannah Rose Woods is the the Founding Artistic Director of Island Shakespeare Festival. She has served as Artistic Director for three theatre companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and has worked across the country with both professional and youth theatre companies, including Marin Shakespeare Company, The Curtain Theatre, Shotgun Players, TheatreWorks, and, most recently, with Seven Stages Shakespeare Company in New Hampshire. She is a professional screenwriter and playwright as well as a published poet. She was awarded a commendation from Senator Barbara Boxer for her work with youth theatre and is the recipient of a number of awards for both her writing and directing, including the Elizabeth George Foundation Grant, Humanitarian Teacher of the Year Award, the Bay Area Critics Award, and a variety of national and international awards for her screenwriting.

A full schedule of performances and the cast and crew for each play are on our website. Participating companies are GreenStage, Seattle Shakespeare Company’s Wooden O, Last Leaf Productions, Theater Schmeater, The 14/48 Projects, Freehold Theatre, Jet City Improv, Young Shakespeare Workshop, and Shakespeare Northwest.

All dates, times, and locations subject to change.

“I know, I know, karaoke is supposed to kinda suck. It is traditionally composed of bad sound, limited song choices, and frat boy margaritaville sing-alongs. 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.”
