      3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      ArtsWest and Balagan Theatre are excited to announce the joining of forces this fall for the Seattle premiere of Dogfight.

      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

      “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.”

      Solomon Douglas is a jazz pianist and bandleader, whose various bands have played at hundreds of exchanges, camps, workshops, and other dance events in North America, Asia, and Australia in the past 13 years. His experience as a swing dancer and dance instructor gives him an understanding unique among musicians of the music that swing dancers and blues dancers like to dance to!

      His influences as a pianist include Erroll Garner, Oscar Peterson, Gene Harris, Count Basie, and Thelonious Monk. His small groups (such as the Solomon Douglas Trio) play a mixture of musical styles including blues, old-school swing, and groovy mainstream swinging jazz with tinges of bop and soul-jazz.

    17. Solarize Washington free workshop @ Highland Park Improvement Club
      7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

      At the Highland Park Improvement Club:

      If you live in southwest Seattle, Burien, North Highline, or Tukwila, and have been thinking about installing a solar system on your home or small business, this program is for you! Solarize Southwest offers an exciting solar group purchase program for residents who live south of Downtown, west of I-5, and north of the Seattle City Light service boundary.

      To launch the program, Northwest SEED has teamed up with Seattle City Light and a coalition of local community groups, including Sustainable West Seattle and Sustainable Burien. The best part — the program is easy to understand and easy to participate in. Here’s how it works:

      1. Register

      Register in our system so we can keep you up to date on workshops and to schedule individual site assessments.

      Attend a free Solarize Washington workshop to learn about solar energy technology, solar economics in Washington, and this limited time group purchase opportunity. Workshop attendance will put you on the fast track to receive a free site assessment. Workshop schedule:

      LAST WORKSHOP Wednesday, October 29, 7-8:30 pm- Highland Park Improvement Club, 1116 SW Holden Street Seattle

      3. Get evaluated

      Once you’ve attended a workshop, you are eligible to receive a free site assessment from the competitively selected installation team. The installation team will come to evaluate your home for solar and work with you to determine the best system for your needs and budget.

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      ArtsWest and Balagan Theatre are excited to announce the joining of forces this fall for the Seattle premiere of Dogfight.

      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

      5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

      Join your neighbors and colleagues and fellow urban farmers every Thursday, 5–7 pm, starting March 13, at the Community Orchard of West Seattle.

      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. The Whale Trail Speaker Series: “Protected Zones for Puget Sound Orcas” @ C & P Coffee Company
      7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

      The latest in a new series of Orca Talks hosted by The Whale Trail in West Seattle takes place Thursday October 30th, 7:00–9:00 pm at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor). $5 suggested donation, kids free. Tickets are available online.

      “A Protected Zone for Puget Sound Orcas”
      Bruce Stedman, Orca Relief

      The Southern Resident Killer Whales are endangered and seriously declining; their 2014 population of 79 is the lowest since 1985. To aid their recovery, Orca Relief is urging NOAA Fisheries to conduct a public process that will result in a Whale Protection Zone for the SRKWs.

      A well designed and enforced WPZ would provide the Southern Resident Orca a safe-haven in the very core of their critical habitat, and a relief from vessel impacts including noise, disturbance and air pollution. Bruce Stedman, Executive Director of Orca Relief will describe the key aspects of how a protected area for the Orca should be developed and how it could help
      the SRKWs begin to recover.

      Join us to hear the latest about the orcas, and updates from Robin Lindsay (Seal Sitters), and Diver Laura James (tox-ick.org). This is the first in a new series of Orca Talks hosted by The Whale Trail in West Seattle.

      Buy tickets ahead of time and we’ll save you a seat! And hurry – this will likely sell out.

      About the Speaker
      The Executive Director of Orca Relief Citizens’ Alliance, Bruce Stedman has more than three decades of experience in marine conservation, ocean health issues, and whale conservation. He was one of the core team that built the Whale Museum (Friday Harbor, WA) and was its first curator. He has directed five other conservation and environmental organizations, as well as working as an environmental mediator for 15 years. He has facilitated or mediated more than 100 decision-making or information-sharing processes on many environmental topics, and designed/conducted more than 55 workshops or study tours for public officials and technical specialists from over 40 countries. Trained at University of Washington and MIT, Mr. Stedman has taught conservation and environmental courses at Harvard, MIT, Tufts, and Western Washington Universities.

      About The Whale Trail
      The Whale Trail (www.thewhaletrail.org) is a series of sites around the region where the public may view orcas and other marine mammals from shore. Our mission is to inspire appreciation and stewardship of whales and our marine environment by establishing a network of viewing sites along the whales’ trails through the Salish Sea and the coastal waters of the Pacific Northwest.

      Our goals are to increase awareness that our marine waters are home to orcas and other species; connect visitors to orcas, other marine wildlife and their habitat; inspire stewardship and build community; promote land-based whale watching. Our over-arching goal is to ensure the southern resident orcas do not go extinct.

      The Whale Trail provides simple, powerful, and long-lasting reminders to visitors and residents alike that orcas and other whales live in our waters. Through our current sites and signs, including two on every Washington State ferry, we reach more than 22 million people each year. Our near-term goals are to add a site in every coastal county in Washington, and around Vancouver Island, throughout the orcas’ range. Together, we will turn the tide for the whales!

      The Whale Trail is led by a core team of partners including NOAA Fisheries, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Seattle Aquarium, the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, and the Whale Museum. Donna Sandstrom is the Founder and Executive Director. The Whale Trail is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, registered in Washington State.

    15. Seattle premiere of “Dogfight” @ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery
      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      ArtsWest and Balagan Theatre are excited to announce the joining of forces this fall for the Seattle premiere of Dogfight.

      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

    19. Seattle premiere of “Dogfight” @ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery
      6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      ArtsWest and Balagan Theatre are excited to announce the joining of forces this fall for the Seattle premiere of Dogfight.

      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

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.”

      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

      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.

      About the Show:
      Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare’s play. In Tom Stoppard’s best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.

      “Very funny, very brilliant, very chilling; it has the dust of thought about it and the particles glitter excitingly in the theatrical air. ” – The New York Times

      “A stimulating, funny, imaginative comedy.” – The New York Daily News

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      ArtsWest and Balagan Theatre are excited to announce the joining of forces this fall for the Seattle premiere of Dogfight.

      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

      About the Show:
      Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare’s play. In Tom Stoppard’s best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.

      he Orchard St Ravine work party schedule for 2014 is for the second Saturday of each month from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. Come any time between those hours.

      This is a great opportunity to meet new neighbors and catch up with friends, while maintaining your local park. The ravine looks beautiful at this time of year but needs a little TLC. There are plenty of ways to contribute. The parks department crew cleared quite a few blackberries last month, but they left behind a few roots that we need to remove. The trails need trimming and there are wood chips to spread. Or just come to say “hello”. We would love to see you!

      If you plan to come, please register beforehand at http://seattle.cedar.greencitypartnerships.org/. It’s easy to do. Just find the Orchard Street Ravine under “Filter by Park”, click on the work party, and then “Join this Event”.

      10:00 am – 2:00 pm

      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.

      3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      ArtsWest and Balagan Theatre are excited to announce the joining of forces this fall for the Seattle premiere of Dogfight.

      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.

      “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.”

    12. Seattle premiere of “Dogfight” @ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery
      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      ArtsWest and Balagan Theatre are excited to announce the joining of forces this fall for the Seattle premiere of Dogfight.

      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

      Tickets:

      $12 at the door

      About the Show:
      Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare’s play. In Tom Stoppard’s best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.

      “Very funny, very brilliant, very chilling; it has the dust of thought about it and the particles glitter excitingly in the theatrical air. ” – The New York Times

      “A stimulating, funny, imaginative comedy.” – The New York Daily News

      WINNER! Tony® Award for Best Play
      WINNER! NY Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play

      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.

Join us as we learn the entire process from flour to loaf: mixing, kneading, rising, and baking. We’ll provide all the ingredients and you’ll make your very own breads to take home, warm out of the oven! We’ll also learn to make yummy dips to fill our pocketbread ( such as hummus, babaganouj, or tzatziki).

      7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

      Dogfight – October 23–November 22, 2014

      ArtsWest and Balagan Theatre are excited to announce the joining of forces this fall for the Seattle premiere of Dogfight.

      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

      About the Show:
      Acclaimed as a modern dramatic masterpiece, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead is the fabulously inventive tale of Hamlet as told from the worm’s-eye view of the bewildered Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two minor characters in Shakespeare’s play. In Tom Stoppard’s best-known work, this Shakespearean Laurel and Hardy finally get a chance to take the lead role, but do so in a world where echoes of Waiting for Godot resound, where reality and illusion intermix, and where fate leads our two heroes to a tragic but inevitable end.

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
