Twelfth Night Productions’ FIRST DATE @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Apr 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Twelfth Night Production (TNP) is proud to present FIRST DATE.

When blind date newbie Aaron is set up with serial-dater Casey, a casual drink at a busy New York restaurant turns into a hilarious high-stakes dinner. As the date unfolds in real time, the couple quickly finds that they are not alone on this unpredictable evening. In a delightful and unexpected twist, Casey and Aaron’s inner critics take on a life of their own when other restaurant patrons transform into supportive best friends, manipulative exes and protective parents. Can this couple turn what could be a dating disaster into something special before the check arrives?

Tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for students and seniors.

This production will be performed at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, April 28, 29 and May 5 and 6 at 7:30 and April 30 and May 7 at 3:00. Tickets are available online at Brown Paper Tickets, and at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, 4408 Delridge WY SW, an hour before the show on performance days. Prices are $20 for adults and $18 for students & seniors. http://www.twelfthnightproductions.org/

Frozen @ ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery
Apr 28 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery  is pleased to announce Bryony Lavery’s “Frozen”, the Tony Award-nominated play about a serial killer and two women who track him down. Performances will run Thursday, April 20 through Sunday until May 14.

Synopsis: As Ralph, a serial killer with a heart of ice, sits in prison contemplating crimes, two women cross the country to confront him – Agnetha, a psychologist who studies the minds of monsters, and Nancy, mother to one of his young victims. When their paths finally cross, they explore the dark side of human nature and our capacity for change.

Cast
The ArtsWest production of Frozen features a meeting of two Seattle acting powerhouses – Amy Thone (THE TRIAL, TITUS ANDRONICUS) as Nancy, and Peter Crook (Mozart in Broadway’s touring cast of AMADEUS, INTIMAN’s ANGELS IN AMERICA and more) as Ralph.
Rounding out the cast is Jonelle Jordan as Agentha, making her ArtsWest debut.

WSCO Student Strings and Debut Orchestra Concert @ Chief Sealth International High School
May 2 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

West Seattle Community Orchestras (WSCO) FREE Student Strings and Debut Orchestra Concert
Tuesday, May 2, 6:00 p.m.
Chief Sealth International High School Auditorium
2600 SW Thistle St.

Don’t miss the downbeat! West Seattle Community Orchestras’ first concert of the spring season will open promptly at 6:00 with a few very short pieces by our newest musicians—school-age students who are learning to play an instrument. Some will be performing in their first-ever concert!

The Student Strings performance will be followed by our Debut Orchestra, which includes strings, of course, but also adds winds and percussion to form a full symphony orchestra. You’ll see adults performing right alongside young people—as far as we know, the only such ensemble in the state! This is the group’s fifth year under the baton of the phenomenal Rachel Nesvig, who pulls an amazing level of accomplishment from these fledgling musicians.

Along with several orchestral classics, a feature of their program will be “Highlights from Harry Potter.”

Best of all, it’s free! (Though donations are very much appreciated.)

“…[a] fine play…so concentrated and unflinching that at times it takes your breath away.” — Observer (London).

“A major play…thrilling, humane and timely.” —Times (London).

“…[a] big, brave, compassionate play about grief, revenge, forgiveness and bearing the unbearable.” — Guardian (London).

“Consistently surprising and even bravely comic…The almost thriller-like promise of the play’s climactic confrontation is like a time-bomb ticking in the back of your head.” — Independent (London).
