      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

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

Free tickets online at: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/fight-like-a-girl-tickets-13978805985

      Fight Like a Girl is an ode to overcoming demons through boxing that tells a larger story about abuse, trauma, mental illness, and healing. Its creator Jill Morley is a prolific artist and media voice. Her other award-winning films have appeared at the American Film Institute, the Santa Barbara Film Festival, The Sebastopol Documentary Film Festival and the International San Francisco Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, and have run on the Sundance Channel. She has also written extensively for publications like The Village Voice and Bust Magazine, and worked as a producer on NPR’s This American Life and Michael Moore’s The Awful Truth. Morley believes in the power of supporting young women through programs like Reel Grrls, and is coming to Seattle for this screening of her film and to kick off the campaign benefiting the organization.

      Early this fall, Reel Grrls welcomed new Executive Director Nancy Chang, who has brought refreshing energy back to Reel Grrls. Nancy is a tenacious and accomplished youth program innovator. She brings deep and authentic youth community development experience to Reel Grrls from her position as Co-Founder and Board Chair of Skate Like a Girl, a non-profit promoting an all-inclusive skateboarding community. With a background in art and public administration, she has successfully applied her skills to developing creative solutions for building healthy communities, shifting culture, and maintaining fiscally sound programming in the cities of Redmond, Seattle and beyond.

      Nancy, Jill, and the board of Reel Grrls welcome you to this one-of-a-kind event, where you’ll also learn about our community-based program design approach and how to get more involved in Reel Grrls. Reel Grrls is proud to partner as a resident organization with Youngstown Cultural Arts Center. The event is free, doors open at 6 pm, and the program starts at 7 pm.

We read out loud in the group, and when there’s something someone would like to discuss, we stop for a few minutes to talk about it. We’ll be choosing a new book for the group in the near future. Come, be part of the process. New readers are always welcome. If you have questions about the group, contact Fred Matthews at seafam2010@gmail.com.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013.

      On Saturday, November 8, 10 am–2 pm, hundreds of volunteers will pitch in at parks around Seattle to help restore forest habitat as part of Green Seattle Day. In West Seattle, Nature Consortium will host volunteers in the West Duwamish Greenbelt, the city’s largest remaining forest.

      For more information or to sign up to volunteer, visit www.naturec.org/green-seattle-day/

      Green Seattle Day is an annual day of service organized by the Green Seattle Partnership, a collaboration between the City of Seattle, Forterra, non-profit partners, and thousands of committed volunteers that seek to create a sustainable network of healthy forested parklands in the city.

      Seattle’s wealth of parks has made it one of the greenest cities in the nation, as ranked by the International Business Times. But without a coordinated effort, Seattle is at risk of losing 70% of its forests in just 20 years due to threats from invasive weeds and the effects of urbanization.

      Volunteering in local parks is a meaningful way for people of all ages to connect with nature, get exercise, and support the environment. On Green Seattle Day in the West Duwamish Greenbelt, Nature Consortium will lead volunteers in tree planting and invasive weed removal.

      Volunteers can also enjoy live music while they work and participate in nature-based art activities as part of Nature Consortium’s Eco Arts program.

      The Green Seattle Partnership manages about 2,500 acres of forested parkland with nonprofit partners like Forterra, Nature Consortium, and EarthCorps. Nature Consortium has been working to restore forest habitat in the West Duwamish Greenbelt since 2003.

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

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

      Buy tickets online here.

      Reception: Wednesday November 19th, 2014, 12:00 pm–2:00 pm

      Throwbacks and Unusual is an exhibition of handmade pottery by Seattle area artists Alix Broduer, Wally Bivens, Damien Grava, Isaac Howard, James Lobb, Deborah Schwartzkopf, George Rodriguez, and Ellie Weber. Many artists in this show take a unique approach to familiar pottery forms. Some of these potters choose to look back for inspiration, to a time when the handmade object was much more common place in the home. Others are inventing new uses and new ceramic objects for the evolving 21st century domestic setting. Regardless of the approach,this is not only a remarkable collection of pieces, but demonstrates the wide range of possibilities that handmade pottery can be.

    7. *7:30 pm* – “Dogfight” @ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery
      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

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

The Helpline also refers those in needto other community resources that may assist in getting them back on their feet.

West Side Presbyterian Church will host a pancake breakfast for Women’s Enterprises International (WEI).

These groups use the funds to buy rainwater catchment tanks for their homesteads and their communities. Without the tanks, women as young as 12, walk for hours each day to bring unclean water to their families and then they have to treat the water. Rainwater is clean and available if it can be caught.

      Come meet the organization’s co-founder. We look forward to seeing you and are suggesting a donation of just $5 per person or $20 per family. No obligation!

      Dow Constantine is a West Seattle local who got his start in politics through his environmental work with the Friends of the College Street Ravine many years ago. Before becoming King County Executive, Dow worked with his local community to save the five-acre green space from threats of development.

      After Dow was elected, he asked Nature Consortium to continue the work he started at College Street Ravine. Since 2010, we’ve celebrated Dow’s birthday, and sometimes half-birthday, with live music and community service.

      This year, we invite you, your family, and your neighbors to volunteer with Nature Consortium to plant trees and shrubs in the ravine and remove invasive weeds to help our local habitat heal. Volunteering is an excellent way to meet neighbors, enjoy the outdoors, and support the community we all share.

      When: Saturday, November 15, 10 am to 2 pm
      Where: SW College Street and 51st Avenue SW

      Register Here:
      www.naturec.org/volunteer/dow-constantine-day/

      No experience is necessary, and Nature Consortium will provide the tools and training you need to work. Live music for the event will be provided while you work by local trombonist Marc Smason.

      In addition to Dow’s birthday, you can also join Nature Consortium at College Street Ravine on the first Tuesday of every month. Visit www.naturec.org/volunteer to RSVP.

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

      An Exhibition of pottery curated by guest James Lobb
      Wednesday November 19th, 2014, 12:00 pm–2:00 pm

      Throwbacks and Unusual is an exhibition of handmade pottery by Seattle area artists Alix Broduer, Wally Bivens, Damien Grava, Isaac Howard, James Lobb, Deborah Schwartzkopf, George Rodriguez, and Ellie Weber. Many artists in this show take a unique approach to familiar pottery forms. Some of these potters choose to look back for inspiration, to a time when the handmade object was much more common place in the home. Others are inventing new uses and new ceramic objects for the evolving 21st century domestic setting. Regardless of the approach,this is not only a remarkable collection of pieces, but demonstrates the wide range of possibilities that handmade pottery can be.

      Gallery Hours:
      Monday – Friday
      10:00 am – 4:00 pm

      at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor)

      West Seattle WordsWest Literary Series is a monthly invitation to hear world-class writers from near and far and to join and nurture the West Seattle literary community.

      What is the simple link between savoring good food and living a good life? How does what happens in the kitchen, what is served at the table, make a key difference to the interactions between friends and family both in our homes and in our local restaurants?

      For the November 19, 2014 edition of WordsWest Literary Series, pie poet extraordinaire Kate Lebo and New York Times Bestselling author Molly Wizenberg will read their work and explore with the audience connections between handcrafted food, creative kitchens and the written word.

      In honor of Thanksgiving, a holiday focused on thanks as well as great food, all proceeds from sales of the evening’s donated pie (Kate) and chocolate-chip cookies with gray salt (Molly) will go to West Seattle Food Bank.

      Kate Lebo’s poems and prose have appeared in New England Review, Best New Poets, the Rumpus, Gastronomica, Willow Springs, and Poetry Northwest, and she’s the author of two books about the folk art of pie-making, A Commonplace Book of Pie and Pie School: Lessons in Fruit, Flour, and Butter. For more, visit katelebo.com.

      Molly Wizenberg is a Seattle-based writer, photographer, and co-owner of two restaurants, Delancey and Essex. She is the voice behind the award-winning
      blog Orangette and the author of two New York Times bestsellers, A Homemade Life: Stories and Recipes from My Kitchen Table, and Delancey: A Man, A Woman, A Restaurant, A Marriage. When she’s not busy with that stuff, she’s hanging out with her husband Brandon, daughter June, and two dogs named Jack and Alice.

      Every third Wednesday, 7 pm, at C & P Coffee Company, WordsWest hosts literary events that range from readings by published local and national authors, to craft discussions and guided writing explorations for every experience level. Folks from local, independent businesses share a favorite poem as part of the Favorite Poem Project. On November 19, Delridge Grocery Co-op, will join us.

      WordsWest is curated by West Seattle writers Katy E. Ellis, Susan Rich, and Harold Taw. For more information, please contact: wordswestliterary@gmail.com.

    14. *7:30 pm* – “Dogfight” @ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery
      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

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

    9. Community meeting: Special Meeting: Church of Nazarene Comprehensive Plan Amendment @ The Kenney
      7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

      From the Morgan Community Association (MoCA):

      Thursday, Nov 20, 7:00 pm
      Location: The Kenney (WSB sponsor), in Community Room

      Special Meeting regarding the Church of Nazarene Comprehensive Plan Amendment to finalize language. MoCA membership previously endorsed the plan of the Nazarene Church to develop a vacant portion of their property near the corner of 42nd and Juneau for 6 townhome (semi-detached) housing units and a public-access playground/park area. That area, pursuant to the Morgan Junction Neighborhood Plan of 1999, is currently zoned for single-family housing units. The proposed development is within the Urban Village specified in that Plan. In October, MoCA was asked by the Seattle Department of Planning and Development (DPD) to revisit our Neighborhood Plan, to provide stipulated language that would allow a single-case exception to that original 1999 Plan. This would allow the current multi-family proposal to proceed. At the October 15, 2014 MoCA meeting, this was discussed and various options for how to word the Comprehensive Plan amendment were complied. A small committee met afterwards to craft the proposed language for the amendment, which will be presented and voted on at this meeting. Following the meeting, DPD will take our proposed wording and ensure that it meets all city and legal requirements and then present the final amendment legislation to City Council in early 2015.

      It is very important that the all residents of the Morgan Junction Urban Village and the Morgan Junction Stewardship area attend and participate in this meeting. This change to the Morgan Junction Comprehensive Plan is first time we will be amending the goals and policies supporting the Plan since it was created by an extensive community process in 1998-99. We want to make sure that all in Morgan Junction are aware of this proposed language change and the potential impacts of this precedent setting request by the Department of Planning and Development. The Morgan Junction Urban Village boundaries and the surrounding The Morgan Junction Stewardship area can be viewed at http://www.seattle.gov/neighborhoods/npi/factsheets/Morgan Junction Residential Urban Village.pdf

Our main goal is to show our neighbors that Eastridge cares by providing a meal this Thanksgiving.”

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      Based on the 1991 Warner Bros. film, Dogfight is the romantic and heartbreaking story of three young marines in 1963 on the eve of the deployment to the small but growing conflict in Vietnam. Their last evening of fun and debauchery has a cruel edge and Eddie Birdlace enlists a sweet but awkward waitress, Rose Fenny, to join him at the party that night. Rewriting the rules of the game she has become a part of, Rose teaches young Eddie the meaning of compassion.

      With music and lyrics by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (EDGES, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH, A CHRISTMAS STORY) and Peter Duchan (STU FOR SILVERTON), the show won critical acclaim in New York and received the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical in 2013. Dogfight veers from intimate and intense to wildly energetic.

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

    7. Fred Talks series: Dr. J. Richard Goss @ Alki UCC/Kol HaNeshamah
      3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

      Just announced by Kol HaNeshamah, their first “FRED Talk”:

      Listen to what Harborview Medical Center Medical Director, J. Richard Goss M.D., has to say about Ebola, Obamacare and other hot topics which impact our community Sunday, Nov. 23, from 3-5 pm at Alki UCC/Kol HaNeshamah, 6115 SW Hinds, as part of West Seattle’s first FRED Talk.

      If you are familiar with Ted Talks, you will understand FRED Talks. FRED, which stands for Fresh, Relevant, Educational & Dynamic Talks are a way for community members to come together to hear from those who are on the front lines working hard in our community each day.

      “We see one another at the grocery store, ride buses together, attend our children’s’ games or performances and say hello,” says Kol HaNeshamah Rabbi Zari Weiss, “but we seldom take time to really learn about the challenges and the joys we face on a daily basis at work. FRED Talks are designed to give us the opportunity to hear more from one another about why we do what we do each day.”

      Other speakers, November 23, include Scott Schill, producer of Frank vs. God, a full-length feature comedy currently making a splash at film festivals around the country, Danielle Eidenberg-Noppe, education ombudsman at the Washington State Office of Education, and Alice Braverman, the development director at Navos Mental Health Solutions.

      FRED Talk speakers will share stories of gumption, grit and gratitude and allow time for questions. Attendees will hear from all four speakers with a short intermission along the way. Suggested admission is $18 for adults and $12 for seniors and students. Children’s activities will be available, ages 3-11, for $5 a session.

      We are excited to invite community members from West Seattle and beyond to join us for this interesting and engaging afternoon,” Weiss says.

      Proceeds from this event will go toward KHN, West Seattle’s progressive synagogue community.

      Tuesdays 1:00–2:00 pm, join us at the Senior Center of West Seattle for something different in the way to enjoy a book. Join us for insights, ideas and sharing. We read out loud in the group, and when there’s something someone would like to discuss, we stop for a few minutes to talk about it. We’ll be choosing a new book for the group in the near future. Come, be part of the process. New readers are always welcome. If you have questions about the group, contact Fred Matthews at seafam2010@gmail.com.

      “Words, Writers & West Seattle” Presents Presents Children’s Books Author Karen Robbins & Illustrator, Sally Marts.

      “Shoe Print Art: Step Into Drawing” – Sponsored by Southwest Seattle
      Historical Society at Dec. 5th “First Friday” event

      Karen S. Robbins and illustrator Sally Marts will demonstrate the combination of their talents in their presentation of “Shoe Print Art: Step Into Drawing” (Hide and Seek Press, 2013). Robbins is an award-winning author, teacher, and TV celebrity and Marts is a freelance designer/illustrator, both now living in Seattle. Children from across the country were found to do drawings for the book, following steps provided in the book and adding their own creative touches. The children’s photos were used inside the book alongside the diagrams which are said to be “simple enough for almost any age, even adults”. Robbins and Marts will discuss how the resulting creations can be turned into greeting cards, note cards, or even foam refrigerator magnets.

      The public is invited to this FREE presentation on Friday, December 5th
      from 5 pm to 7 pm at Barnes & Noble/Westwood Village.

      Robbins is a winner of the Benjamin Franklin Gold Medal Award from the Independent Book Publishers Association and has been writing for 28 years, is a book and toy designer, poet, writer of picture books and novelty books with a U.S. patent. She has been an elementary school teacher, has written books for elementary teachers and over 50 magazine articles and appeared as “Miss Karen” on television’s Romper Room Show, is a lecturer/speaker, and a university instructor. She attended the University of Washington and holds a master of education degree from the University of Puget Sound.

      Sally Marts began her career as an artist for a major department store, where she illustrated newspaper ads for many years. She discovered her joy creating for children while designing for a large toy company and has focused her career on the kid’s market since then. She has illustrated books, educational materials, posters, fabrics, and designed toys and packaging. Marts now works from her studio in Seattle.

      Words, Writers & West Seattle’s next FIRST FRIDAY book talk is scheduled for January 2nd and will feature West Seattle author, Christine Brant and her book Red and Grey. 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.

      5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

      Now in its 5th year of providing free tools, advice and workshop space to the community on a donation basis, the West Seattle Tool Library is holding its second annual fundraiser.

      The fundraiser, which will also serve as Sustainable West Seattle’s annual winter holiday party, will be held Friday, December 5, from 5-9 pm at the SoDo MakerSpace, 1914 Occidental Ave S. All net proceeds will go to the maintenance of tool library operations, as well as potential enhancements such as extended hours and more classes.

      The fundraiser, continuing with last year’s theme of a “Festivus” party, will be a gala with a dinner buffet, beer, wine, soft drinks, music, a raffle, kid activities, and a tool sale. In addition, discounts will be offered on tool library lifetime memberships, and members who have tool library items they’ve been meaning to return will be offered amnesty for any returned tools. No fines and no questions asked!

      Everyone is welcome. No cover charge except for a voluntary suggested donation for food.

      Donations and volunteer help, including day-of setup help for the fundraiser, are still needed. If you are an individual or business with an item you’d like to donate for the raffle or are interested in volunteering, please contact us at library@wstoollibrary.org. Food and beverage donations are also welcome. Donors will be recognized at the event.

      Since opening in the summer of 2010, the West Seattle Tool Library has built an inventory of more than 2,500 tools, signed up more than 2,000 members, facilitated over 13,000 loans, offered many classes and served as the home of the Fixer’s Collective and Ask an Expert night. It has been a model to many other tool libraries that have opened in the Puget Sound region and beyond, and received positive media attention as an example of the type of sharing economy projects needed to make the world more sustainable. It is a nonprofit project of Sustainable West Seattle. You can learn more and check out our inventory at www.wstoollibrary.org.

      Couch Fest Films is a traveling festival of sorts: moviegoers enjoy films shown in Seattle residents’ living rooms, offices…even boats! Neighborhoods with festival locations include Capitol Hill, Greenlake, Columbia City, Madison Park, Wallingford and three locations in West Seattle.
      
      Check out the map here.

      The festival includes over 45 short films, presented in 6 programs throughout the day, beginning on the hour at 1 pm through 6 pm.

      The exact host locations will be announced on the festival website (www.couchfestfilms.com) several days in advance of the event. The website will also include maps, driving directions, parking information and transit options for each home.

      Admission to the entire event–including the after party–is just $10, paid at the door of the first home each festivalgoer attends. Tickets can also be purchased online from couchfestfilms.com.

Art Under $100 began in a residential garage in the South Park neighborhood. Wendy Woldenberg said, “We had about 100 people at our first sale. Each year it grows. Last year we hosted more than 1600 shoppers! People are drawn by the quality of the art, the opportunity to purchase it directly from the artists, and because it’s a party!”

      ~ And yes, even more art: The COCA gallery, also in the Seattle Design Center, will be open and free to the public. Composer Jovino Santos Neto and visual artist Michelle de la Vega will be on hand to present interconnected sculptural forms and sound installations that represent the complexities and strength of nearby communities, like South Park and the Duwamish River Valley area.

      ~ Plus there’s music: Vinyl spinning DJs provide a live soundtrack from above the show.

      Reception & Artist Talks: Tuesday December 9th, 6-9 pm

      Big/Little Self
      Tim Cross
      Mugi Takei
      NOVEMBER 20, 2014 – JANUARY 10, 2015

      “My little self can only make artworks to resolve the distance between my imagination and what I can never touch.”

      - Tim Cross

      “I longed for intimacy with and within everything and anything. I wanted to see each and every microscopic structure of being. I wanted to see through my lover’s eyes into his soul. I wanted to see cells breathing in plants. Ultimately, I wanted to see something I couldn’t see. Slowly within me those kinds of urges disappeared and something lighter took over.”

      - Mugi Takei

      Tim Cross’s large scale (in the range of 5- 8 feet) works are created by transferring Laser and Xerox prints to silk using matte medium. Imagery suggestive of 1970’s sci-fi rocket ship parts, water, the surface of the moon, and abstract shapes and patterns reverberate off each other in compositions that function more as paintings than collages.

      Mugi Takei’s watercolor paintings, too, seem to transcend their materials; the bodies of color read more like earth, blood, and water than they do pigments from a
      tube. Girls with swollen bellies lie submerged under oceans and commune with human-sized plant beings covered in thousands of quivering hairs. Both artists make work from a place of acknowledging and questioning the size and shape of their own selves in the face of what they perceive is possible.

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Twelfth Night Productions (TNP) is excited to announce the return of It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Show, playing this December at Kenyon Hall. Based the classic 1946 Frank Capra film, playwright Joe Landry’s take on It’s a Wonderful Life, comes to life as a live 1940s radio broadcast. The ensemble of characters bring the town of Bedford Falls to the stage, and George Bailey to the fateful Christmas Eve when, as he contemplates ending his life, he realizes the difference he makes in the lives of others.

      This live radio show will be performed at historic Kenyon Hall, one of West Seattle’s favorite venues, December 5, 6, 12 and 13 at 7:30 pm and December 7 and 14 at 3 pm. Bring the family and make this a holiday tradition! Tickets are available online at Brown Paper Tickets <http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/917572>, and at Kenyon Hall on performance days. Prices are $18 for adults and $15 for students & seniors.

      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.

    4. Holiday 2014 Vashon Island Art Studio Tour
      10:00 am – 4:00 pm

      Vashon Island is well known as a place where art happens! Island artists invite you to attend the Holiday 2014 Vashon Island Art Studio tour which will be held on Dec 6th-7th, and 13th-14th, from 10 am to 4 pm each day.

      This is a great opportunity to experience the rural charm of beautiful Vashon Island, a short ferry ride from West Seattle, Southworth or Tacoma. Visitors can check out the art and buy directly from the artists, while enjoying the energy and variety of their work spaces. Grab a friend and come on over—the artists have been busy!

      There will be 32 stops on this free, self-guided Holiday Art Tour, including holiday heirloom stockings, gourd ornaments, botanical inspired prints and colorful pillows, hand woven items to wear and for the home, twig chairs and handmade brooms, paintings in oil, acrylic watercolor and wax encaustic, handcrafted wood cutting boards, beeswax candles, cast bells, elegant porcelain pottery, painted terracotta tiles, and much, much more!

      Color maps of the Tour are available online at www.VashonIslandArtStudioTour.com as well as at most Island businesses once you arrive on Vashon. Catch the ferry at Fauntleroy (West Seattle), Point Defiance (Tacoma), or Southworth (Kitsap) and enjoy the scenic 15 minute ride. Boats leave often, and schedules are available at www.wsdot.wa.gov/ferries.
