CANCELED – ‘Saint Joan’ @ ArtsWest Theater
Apr 3 @ 7:30 pm

On Thursday 3/12, ArtsWest announced the run was canceled.

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

Saint Joan

Written by George Bernard Shaw (Nobel Prize-winning playwright)
Adapted by Corinne Magin
Directed by Mathew Wright

Tracing the life of Joan of Arc from the siege of Orleans, through her trial and recantation, and culminating with the tragedy that transformed into a legend, Saint Joan is an electrifying portrait of one of history’s most revered and revolutionary lightning rods. Fiery and timeless, Shaw’s masterpiece shines a fierce light on the limits of an individual in a society dominated by political and religious forces. Presented in a new adapatation, stripped-back staging directed by Mathew Wright, prepare to see Joan’s incendiary life shine brighter than ever.

Benefit cider sales @ South Lincoln Park/Fauntleroy ferry line
Apr 24 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

To raise money and support Immigrant Families Together, students and parents from the Taproot School have been selling lemonade (summer) and Hot Cider (by donation) to ferry travelers and park goers since school began in September. They gather in front of the southern Lincoln Park parking lot, with mobile sellers to catch those in line. All proceeds go to Immigrant Families Together and all supplies have been donated or created by the students and families.

So far this year, the Taproot school sold lemonade for the cause, raising $1,000 from generous West Seattle/Vashon/Southworth travellers in August and $546 from Hot Cider in October. There was a smaller crew in December who raised over $100 during the holiday break. Our enthusiasm continues as we have now organized for a regular series of Hot Cider/Lemonade sales to keep this incredible organization and cause top of mind. We are hoping the warm cider and excited kids will continue to raise awareness, spirits and funds and encourage people to turn out to support the school’s efforts.

Who: Taproot School Students & Families
What: Hot Cider Stand (mobile and stationary) – (Lemonade in warmer months)
Where: Based out of the South Lincoln Park Parking Lot

Benefit cider sales @ South Lincoln Park/Fauntleroy ferry line
Jun 26 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

To raise money and support Immigrant Families Together, students and parents from the Taproot School have been selling lemonade (summer) and Hot Cider (by donation) to ferry travelers and park goers since school began in September. They gather in front of the southern Lincoln Park parking lot, with mobile sellers to catch those in line. All proceeds go to Immigrant Families Together and all supplies have been donated or created by the students and families.

So far this year, the Taproot school sold lemonade for the cause, raising $1,000 from generous West Seattle/Vashon/Southworth travellers in August and $546 from Hot Cider in October. There was a smaller crew in December who raised over $100 during the holiday break. Our enthusiasm continues as we have now organized for a regular series of Hot Cider/Lemonade sales to keep this incredible organization and cause top of mind. We are hoping the warm cider and excited kids will continue to raise awareness, spirits and funds and encourage people to turn out to support the school’s efforts.
