Happening now in West Seattle: Skeleton Theatre 2010, night 1

Till 9 pm, it’s Skeleton Theatre 2010 – “The Death of Rock” – West Seattle’s own animatronic Halloween extravaganza, at 36th/Hanford (map). Thanks to the WSB’er who just texted that photo … we’re heading over shortly to check it out and hope to add video here later.

ADDED 11:59 PM: Two clips – first, a bit of the “Beyond the Music” story of the band Bonaparte, shown on a big screen above the stage, punctuating the songs:

And a bit of Bonaparte’s quite-original, quite-appropriate musical artistry:

Even in a bit of mid-evening drizzle, an appreciative crowd filled the lawn:

Side note – if you walk up 37th along the block south of Hanford, you might see this lovely lass who looks like she should be hanging out with the band:

P.S. If you missed it tonight, Skeleton Theatre is scheduled to run continuously 6-9 pm again tomorrow (Monday) too. This is the fifth year Chris Walker and friends have put on an animatronic tour-de-force … explore the official website for the background (and to find a button to chip in a few bucks if you enjoyed the show!).

    Will the show go on tonight even if it’s raining? I missed last night’s but was hoping to catch tonight’s show.

    I have to be honest, but I did find the show a bit boring this year… :-(
    I feel that it was more adult audience orientred (Please take it the right way, folks… ;-) ) I wish for return of scary storyline sketches…
    Just my 0.1 cents. I did make a donation and will be supporting this wonderful tradition for years to come. Thank you!!!
