Storytelling Festival on Vashon @ Vashon Theatre
Jan 26 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Vashon Wilderness Program (VWP) will host its 13th Annual Storytelling Festival on Sunday, January 26 at 1pm at the Vashon Theatre on Vashon Island. This free, family-friendly event is “for the community, by the community” and will feature nature-based stories–personal, mythic, and ancestral–told by VWP’s seasoned staff and audience members alike.

Storytelling is a core routine at VWP’s nature-immersion programs. Their staff practice oral traditions to inspire the children and instill valuable lessons in wilderness survival, naturalist skills, and community building. VWP students also practice sharing their own stories, both to help deepen their learning journeys and to discover their authentic voices.

Audience members of all ages are invited to bring a prepared 5-minute story, spin a tale in the One-Minute Story-thon, or join the fun, interactive group storytelling improv games.

The Storytelling Festival is best suited for ages 4 and older. Guests are encouraged to arrive early to purchase snacks and sign up for a tellers’ spot.

VWP (a 501c3 non-profit) provides nature immersion programs for people for all ages from Vashon and surrounding Puget Sound communities. To date, VWP has helped nearly 4,500 children, teens, adults, and families connect deeply with themselves, each other, and nature through their transformative nature mentoring programs, camps, workshops, and trainings.

These two ensembles have performed extensively throughout the Northwest, but this collaboration—an all-gospel show— is a first.

Kathy Kallick’s exceptional career includes winning a Grammy and two IBMA Awards, receiving a Lifetime Membership from the California Bluegrass Association, co-founding the internationally-acclaimed Good Ol’ Persons, and collaborating with the country’s top acoustic musicians, including her mighty current band Annie Staninec (fiddle), Greg Booth (dobro, banjo), Tom Bekeny (mandolin), and Cary Black (acoustic bass), all of whom provide sterling harmony vocals.

Cliff Perry and Laurel Bliss began as a singing due more than thirty years ago, and are now recognized as the most important contemporary interpreters of the songs of the Carter Family. Together they formed the heart of Southfork, a legendary Northwest bluegrass band, and they continue to sing with the compelling sincerity of classic country music, playing soulful dobro and guitar that support their powerful vocals.

Twelfth Night Productions’ ‘Love Letters’ @ Kenyon Hall
Feb 14 @ 7:30 pm

Mary and Rick Springer in Love Letters, by A. R. Gurney
The Springers are the creators of Twelfth Night Productions, now in its twenty-fifth year. The duo performed Love Letters a few years ago under T.N.P.’s auspices, and we’re delighted that they’re reprising their performance at Kenyon Hall for Valentine’s Day.

The play is comprised of letters exchanged over a lifetime between two people who grew up together, went their separate ways, but continued to share confidences. As the actors read the letters aloud, what is created is an evocative, touching, frequently funny, but always telling pair of character studies in which what is implied is as revealing and meaningful as what is actually written down.

Front reserved table seats are $14. Row seating is $12 general and $10 seniors. With a reservation, row seating is only $10 general and $8 seniors. Elementary, middle, and high school students are $5. Pre-school children are free.

We accept cash and checks at the door, and doors open thirty minutes before each show.

‘Love’ silent film with Dennis James on the mighty Wurlitzer @ Kenyon Hall
Feb 16 @ 7:30 pm

Wrapping up our Valentine’s weekend, our favorite organist is back to present Greta Garbo and John Gilbert in Love, a grand, over-the-top operatic scale silent film. It’s a modified version of Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina story, but in this one Anna lives!

It was retitled to capitalize on the fact that Greta and John were having a torrid affair, and the publicist had a field day displaying on theatre marquees: GRETA GARBO AND JOHN GILBERT IN LOVE. It worked, and the film was a big hit.

Reserved table seats are $14, and row seating is $12 general and $10 seniors. With a reservation, row seating is only $10 general and $8 seniors. (Table seats are not discounted.) Elementary, middle & high school students are $5.
