West Seattle Friday: From ‘Amahl’ to Alki roller skating

(Jack Block Park entrance, taken by Nakean, shared via the WSB Flickr group pool)
From the WSB West Seattle Events calendar page: It’s opening night for this weekend’s four-performance run of “Amahl and the Night Visitors” by Twelfth Night Productions (WSB sponsor) at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center (tickets available online) … Friday-night skating returns tonight to Alki Community Center (5817 SW Stevens) after a few holiday-season weeks off – $3/person, bring your own skates or borrow them, 6:45-8:45 pm … Grand opening celebration at new 35th/Barton 7-11, free food, drinks, other treats 11 am-1 pm … Cleaning house after the holidays? Northwest Center’s “Big Blue Truck” is in West Seattle Fridays-Sundays, 44th Av SW & SW Edmunds, 9 am – 5 pm. … P.S. If you see this early, another wave of “king tides” is under way, and a 12.5-foot high tide hits West Seattle at 7:26 this morning (next wave is later this month, peaking at 13.3 feet January 22-23).

    I am sad to miss Alki skate. Have not had a chance to do that yet.

    Was the original time for the 7-11 grand opening from 10 to 2? That’s the time in the email I got from 7-11 on Wednesday…

    If you’ve never seen Amahl and the Night Visitors, you may want to give it a try. It’s a quickly-paced one-act opera performed by great local singers, dancers, and actors decked out in colorful costumes (I think kids will love it). It has humor, forgiveness, sacrifice, and redemption; treating the subject matter respectfully while it entertains. Definitely worth a look, in my humble opinion.

Sorry, comment time is over.
