In rhyme, mime and mirth, this exciting comedy examines the familiar fairy tale from three points of view: the traditional, the Bears’, then Goldilocks’. From the opening moment, when three vendors attempt to hawk souvenirs among the audience, to the surprising verdict from the jury and a “happily-ever-after” conclusion this play, performed completely in verse, is unique, enchanting and entertaining for the entire family. The show begins at 7:00pm running less than an hour. Donations requested at the door, as the school district does not provide funds for such productions. There will also be a bake sale.

High School)
Come be a part of our goal of restoring part of Seattle’s 2500 acres of forested park land. Most of the trees in Seattle are near the end of their natural lifespan and invasive plants have choked out the seedlings that would replace the native trees. Come help us remove invasive plants and then put down a layer of mulch to prepare for planting the next generation of native trees and plants. The Delridge Natural Area is a beautiful site with the Longfellow Creek meandering through it. Two beaver ponds have developed as well, creating habitat for many different kinds of wildlife. Be sure to wear long pants, a long sleeve shirt and heavy shoes and if you have work gloves bring them as well. I have a supply of gloves as well. Also, bring water and a snack. If you have any questions, please contact me. RSVP is appreciated.

SUNDAY NIGHT (AND THE FOLLOWING SATURDAY): V-Day occurs in communities nationwide and worldwide each year in order to raise money to end violence against women and girls – including many local productions of Eve Ensler’s play, “The Vagina Monologues.” The West Seattle production of the play will take place on both Feb. 14th and 20th at 7 pm at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center. All profit from ticket sales for the West Seattle performances will benefit Children of the Night (http://www.childrenofthenight.org/), an organization that rescues children from prostitution ~ providing shelter, mental health assistance, education, job placements, and a chance to get back some of their lost childhood; and Refugee Women’s Alliance Domestic Violence Program (http://www.rewa.org/domestic-violence.html), who provide refugee and immigrant women culturally and linguistically appropriate services. They offer services in 15 different languages. The global spotlight for V-Day is directed at Women of the Democratic Republic of Congo where rape is used as a weapon of war. Our efforts fund safe houses and hospitals and increase awareness of the women of the Congo who are resisting violence with courage and vision. Here is a description of the Monologues: Through heartfelt, funny, sad, incredibly moving monologues, women from all over the world talk about what they have experienced as women: love, physical and sexual abuse, fear, the glories of childbirth, isolation, sensitive and insensitive partners. Eve Ensler interviewed hundreds of women of all ages, backgrounds and nationalities for this memorable theatrical production. Tickets are available through Brown Paper Tickets. http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/91252
