Twelfth Night Productions’ ‘It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Show’ @ Kenyon Hall
Dec 16 @ 7:30 pm

Twelfth Night Productions (TNP) is excited to announce the return of “It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Show”, playing this December at Kenyon Hall. Based the classic 1946 Frank Capra film, playwright Joe Landry’s take on “It’s a Wonderful Life,” comes to life as a live 1940s radio broadcast as the ensemble of characters bring the town of Bedford Falls to the stage. You will feel the magic as we return to the fateful Christmas Eve when George Bailey contemplates ending his life before he realizes the difference he makes in the lives of others. “No man is a failure who has friends.”

“If you close your eyes during this production you won’t miss a beat because all of the components – the sound effects, the organ, the commercials, and the Mistletones – work together successfully to recreate the live radio experience of the 1940’s and 50’s.” Drama in the Hood.

This live radio show will be performed at historic Kenyon Hall, one of West Seattle’s favorite venues, December 8, 9, 15 and 16 at 7:30 pm,
and December 10 and 17 at 3 pm.
Bring the family and make this a holiday tradition! Tickets are available online at Brown PaperTickets, and at Kenyon Hall, 7904 35th Ave. SW, Seattle WA, an hour before the show on performance days. Prices are $20 for adults and $18 for students & seniors.

Peerless
By Jiehae Park
Directed by Sara Porkalob

January 18 – February 11, 2018
Thursdays–Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

Asian-American twin sisters M and L will do whatever it takes to win the one coveted affirmative action spot at “The College.” But when the thick acceptance envelope falls into the hands of D, a white male colleague who is 1/16th Native American, the sisters will stop at nothing to take back what is rightfully theirs – and eliminate anyone who stands in their way. Jiehae Park’s clever and incisive adaptation of Macbeth explores how the drive to succeed can become an all-consuming – and deadly – obsession.

“With its staccato rhythms, short scenes, and farcical characters, unlike any you’ve ever seen before onstage, it’s hard to know how to characterize this play, except to say that it’s unexpectedly wonderful.” – The Arts Fuse

Tickets are available online at or at the Box Office: 206-938-0339.

Nighttime low-tide beach walks @ Constellation Park, Alki
Jan 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Join trained volunteer Beach Naturalists at South Alki/Constellation Park on the following dates this year for a free guided exploration at very low tide.

Explore the beach during winter nighttime low tides with Beach Naturalist staff and volunteers. Discover what creatures we see on the beach at this time of year. Dress for the weather (bundle up!) and for tide pooling: boots, hats, gloves and a good flashlight are musts.

Sunday, January 28, 7 pm–9pm

Beach etiquette:
While on the beach, please remember:
~ Walk carefully; there’s life beneath your feet!
~ Touch gently with one wet finger.
~ Observe animals where they are and please avoid picking them up.
~ Please only move rocks that are small enough to be moved with one hand and return them to the position in which you found them.
~ Please only remove trash from the beach, nothing else. Many of our beaches are protected by law.

Meeting Point: Southern-most Lincoln Park parking lot on Fauntleroy Way SW (8600 block of Fauntleroy Way SW)

Lincoln Park is in West Seattle near the Fauntleroy ferry dock. We will stroll the beach seeking good looks at waterfowl and wander the forest to discover winter residents. Great walk for beginners. Bring binoculars if you have them. Dress for blustery winter weather. About 2 miles of mostly level walking with one climb back to our starting point.

Feb 16 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Twelfth Night Productions is proud to present NEXT TO NORMAL.

An unflinching look at a suburban family struggling with the effects of mental illness.

Seattle Audubon community conversation @ C & P Coffee Company
Feb 28 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Wednesday, 2/28, Seattle Audubon is hosting a community meeting at C&P Coffee from 6:30-8:30 p.m.

Seattle Audubon has made significant investment in two new program areas — communications and community engagement. We heard from our community that they want to better understand what we’re up to and how we do our work, and we want to get better at making and sustaining connections with our members. We know we have work to do to engage with our constituents across our chapter’s area, which includes more than the city of Seattle.

In 2018, we’re launching a series of community meetings, what we’re calling “listening sessions,” designed to help us spend more time with and better get to know communities across our geography. We hope that you’ll come and join us to hear about our 2018 plans, talk about how you can engage in that work, and primarily, we want to better get to know our West Seattle community and the conservation issues on your minds. We’re here to help and we look forward to the conversation.

Hir
By Taylor Mac
Directed by Jennifer Zeyl
Co-produced with Intiman Theatre

Feb 28 – Mar 25, 2018
Thursdays through Saturdays at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3:00 pm

Somewhere in the suburbs, Isaac has returned from the wars to help take care of his ailing father, only to enter a different warzone: a household in revolt. His mother, liberated from an oppressive marriage – with Isaac’s newly out transgender sibling as her ally – is on a crusade to dismantle the patriarchy. But in Taylor Mac’s sly, subversive comedy HIR, annihilating the past doesn’t always free you from it.

“…sensational—in all senses of the word…[an] audacious and uproarious black comedy…Mac has his own gloriously skewed vision of the toxins fouling the American family from within, and in its avowedly loopy way HIR reflects current concerns about the decline of the middle class, as well as the trauma war veterans endure…brilliant writing…” —New York Times

Pints of Ales & Killer Whale Tales
A kid- (and dog-) friendly event at Optimism Brewing Company

1 pm to 3 pm, March 31, 2018
1158 Broadway

Join West Seattle-based Killer Whale Tales at Capitol Hill’s Optimism Brewing Company on March 31, 2018 from 1 pm to 3 pm. Killer Whale Tales is a Seattle-based environmental education non-profit. Our program uses storytelling and field-based science to inspire students to take an active role in the conservation of Pacific Northwest killer whales and their habitat.

At Pints of Ales & Killer Whale Tales, our Founder, Jeff Hogan, will deliver an abbreviated version of our interactive program. You’ll learn about the killer whales that live in our Puget Sound waters and what we can do to help protect them and the ecosystem they live in. This is an urgent time for both as environmental protections themselves are endangered.

Come and join us! This event is free and fun for all ages. We will provide some light snacks and non-alcoholic refreshments. Beer will be available for purchase at the bar and Chavoya’s Hot Dogs will also be available for purchase. (Beer and hot dog sales do not benefit KWT).

Children and dogs are welcome at Optimism Brewing Company, so bring your friends and family

Twelfth Night Productions presents ‘Twelfth Night’ @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Apr 13 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Twelfth Night Productions is proud to participate in Seattle Celebrates Shakespeare with Twelfth Night.

Set in New Orleans in the 1930s, Twelfth Night is filled with a sense of decadence and drama. The play opens on Olivia in a once wealthy manor house, now on the decline in the absence of her father and brother. On the other side of town is love interest Orsino’s bizarre house, stuffed with icons and symbols of “Ideal Love.” Another, would-be suitor, Malvolio inhabits his own world that needs order and eschews all things modern, including clothing and music.

Into this world comes a strong, earnest, no-nonsense “Pollyanna,” Viola, with her true belief in right and wrong and her basic belief in the goodness of humans.

The play complicates, then wonderfully untangles, these relationships.

Jazz and blues are woven into our version of this timeless story, adding a sexy, dreamy vibe.

This production will be performed at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, April 13, 14, 20 and 21 at 7:30 pm and April 15 and 22 at 3:00 pm. Tickets are available online at Brown Paper Tickets, and at Youngstown, 4408 Delridge Way SW, an hour before the show on performance days. Prices are $20 for adults and $18 for students & seniors.

The Portable Dorothy Parker @ Kenyon Hall
Apr 20 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

At Kenyon Hall:

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, April 20, 21, and 22, at 7:30 – The Portable Dorothy Parker

The year is 1943; the place, New York City. Dorothy Parker—famed for her presence at the legendary Algonquin Round Table—is in her hotel room. Viking Press is about to publish a collection of her poems and short stories, and she must make the selections before an editor shows up at her door. As she sorts through her works, she reminisces about her life: her famous friends (Lillian Hellman, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and especially, Ernest Hemingway), the wits of the Round Table (Alexander Woollcott, Robert Benchley, George S. Kaufman), the founding of The New Yorker, and her many loves and heartbreaks.

The Portable Dorothy Parker is the labor of love by playwright Annie Lux, director Lee Costello, and actress Margot Avery. In addition to its recent performances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the play has been presented at festivals and venues around the United States, including the Ensemble Studio Theatre in New York City, the Adobe Rose Theatre in Santa Fe, and the Piccolo Spoleto Festival in Charleston, South Carolina. This will be the play’s first performance in the Pacific Northwest, and we’re honored that Kenyon Hall has been chosen to host this marvelous production.

This is the type of tightly written, keenly directed, subtly performed piece that is a pleasure to breathe in.
—Front Row Center (NYC)

Please visit www.theportabledorothyparker.com for more information.

Tickets for April 20, 21, and 22 are $20 general and $18 seniors and students. No table seats for these performances.

Apr 28 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

UPDATE: KENYON HALL SAYS THE SHOW IS SOLD OUT!

At Kenyon Hall:

Saturday, April 28, at 7:30 – I Can Get It For You Wholesale

The Seattle Jewish Theater Company returns with the 1962 Broadway musical that launched the careers of both Barbra Streisand and Elliott Gould. A dozen talented local performers, directed by the company’s artistic director, Art Feinglass, bring this entertaining production to life.

The critical and popular hit is the story of an ambitious young businessman artfully clawing his way to the top of the garment industry in 1930s New York. The show explores the perils of ambition and the price of success. Contrasting the swinging, jazzy rhythms of big city business with the earthy, traditional sounds of the characters’ Eastern European Jewish origins, I Can Get It For You Wholesale captures the energy and promise of a pivotal time in American history.

For more information, please visit www.seattlejewishtheater.com.

On April 28, 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.

With just 76 orcas in J, K and L pods, the Southern Resident Killer Whale population is nearing its all time low of 71 individuals. Is the population still viable – can they be saved?

Buy tickets now to reserve your seat. And hurry – this will likely sell out.

This is the first in the 2018 Orca Talk series hosted by The Whale Trail in West Seattle. Thanks to Nucor Steel for sponsoring this Orca Talk!

Directed by Amelia Meckler Bowers

Fri, Jul 20 @ 7:00 pm at Camp Long – West Seattle
Thu, Jul 26 @ 7:00 pm at Lincoln Park
Sat, Jul 28 @ 7:00 pm at Lincoln Park

Continuing the story line we began last year with Richard II, we look at the reign of King Henry IV. His reign is not going well, with war in Wales and Scotland and friction with the Percy family. In addition, his son and heir, Prince Hal of Wales, bails on his responsibilities at Court to hang out in taverns with a gang of ne’er-do-wells, chief of whom is Sir John Falstaff, a drunkard who, despite his charisma, is a bad influence.

Sat, Jul 21 @ 7:00 pm at Camp Long – West Seattle
Sun, Jul 22 @ 3:00 pm at Lincoln Park
Fri, Jul 27 @ 7:00 pm at Lincoln Park

The Swashbuckling story of The Three Musketeers will delight audiences in Seattle-area parks this summer.

“We have some tremendously talented Stage combatants in Seattle and I look forward to setting them loose,” says Erin Day, GreenStage artistic director who loves the intrigue and sleight of hand that Dumas brings to his tales. She has a particular fondness for The Three Musketeers.

“The characters are all huge and dynamic,” Day says. “I like the juxtaposition of d’Artagnan’s innocence, honor and nobility in contrast to most of the other characters; his youth and eagerness to make his way contrasted to the complacency or avarice with which others move through the world.”

Filled with dueling, intrigue, clandestine love, dueling, political scheming, and dueling, The Three Musketeers has been a favorite for generations! The Musketeers have appeared on stage, the big screen, on television—even in cartoons!—and in video and board games. We think they’ll play especially well outdoors in the parks this summer. En garde!

In addition, his son and heir, Prince Hal of Wales, bails on his responsibilities at Court to hang out in taverns with a gang of ne’er-do-wells, chief of whom is Sir John Falstaff, a drunkard who, despite his charisma, is a bad influence.

Presentation by Cindy Elliser, PacMam Research Director

When: Tuesday September 4th, 7:00 – 8:30
–Doors open at 6:30
Where: C & P Coffee Company, 5612 California Ave SW

Presented by The Whale Trail
Sponsored by Nucor Steel

Harbor porpoise are one of the most abundant animals in the Salish Sea, yet little is known about them. Pacific Mammal Research is dedicated to understanding more about this poorly understood population, using techniques such as photo-ID surveys and passive acoustic technology.

Learn more about this shy and elusive species, and the research that is shedding new light on them.

Whale Trail founder Donna Sandstrom will also give an update on Governor Jay Inslee’s Orca Recovery Task Force and how you can become involved in protecting the southern resident orcas.

Join us as we kick off a new season of Orca Talks! Buy tickets in advance here!

About the Speaker

Dr. Cindy Elliser has conducted marine mammal research for over 15 years. She worked with Dr. Denise Herzing and the Wild Dolphin Project studying Atlantic spotted and bottlenose dolphins in the Bahamas for 10 years before moving to the Pacific Northwest in 2014 and founding Pacific Mammal Research to study marine mammals in the Salish Sea. She also is an adjunct biology/chemistry instructor at Skagit Valley College.

About The Whale Trail

The Whale Trail is a series of sites to view orcas and other marine mammals from shore. Our mission is to inspire appreciation and stewardship of whales and our marine environment.

Through our current sites and signs, including two on every Washington State ferry, we reach more than 50 million people each year. The Whale Trail is currently adding new sites along the North American west coast, from California to British Columbia.

The Whale Trail is led by a core team of partners including NOAA Fisheries, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, the Seattle Aquarium, the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary, the Whale Museum. Donna Sandstrom is the Founder and Executive Director. Many members of the team first met on the successful effort to return Springer, the orphaned orca, to her pod.

Skeleton Crew
By Dominique Morisseau
OBIE and Steinberg Playwright Award-winning playwright

Time Magazine – 10 Best Shows of 2016

In the depths of the 2008 Great Recession, rumors of shutdown start to spread at one of Detroit’s last auto-stamping plants, forcing a tight-knit family of workers to face a devastating question: what will you sacrifice to survive? In the spirit of August Wilson’s Pittsburgh Cycle, award-winning playwright Dominique Morisseau’s bold and compassionate new play lays bare the trials of the human spirit with verve, wit, and an electrifying voice of uncommon poetry.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

“Clifford Odets’ dramas come to mind and so does the great Pittsburgh cycle of August Wilson. But Skeleton Crew is squarely in the tradition of Arthur Miller…A deeply moral and deeply American play.” – The New York Times (Critic’s Pick)

“A social observer of invigorating insight, [Morisseau] reveals a knack in this absorbing comedy-drama for nuanced accounts of the travails of blue-collar men and women and the questionable choices that illuminate their complicated lives.” – The Washington Post

By Dominique Morisseau
OBIE and Steinberg Playwright Award-winning playwright

Time Magazine – 10 Best Shows of 2016

In the depths of the 2008 Great Recession, rumors of shutdown start to spread at one of Detroit’s last auto-stamping plants, forcing a tight-knit family of workers to face a devastating question: what will you sacrifice to survive? In the spirit of August Wilson’s Pittsburgh Cycle, award-winning playwright Dominique Morisseau’s bold and compassionate new play lays bare the trials of the human spirit with verve, wit, and an electrifying voice of uncommon poetry.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

“Clifford Odets’ dramas come to mind and so does the great Pittsburgh cycle of August Wilson. But Skeleton Crew is squarely in the tradition of Arthur Miller…A deeply moral and deeply American play.” – The New York Times (Critic’s Pick)

“A social observer of invigorating insight, [Morisseau] reveals a knack in this absorbing comedy-drama for nuanced accounts of the travails of blue-collar men and women and the questionable choices that illuminate their complicated lives.” – The Washington Post

Nightingale: A Musical Regarding the Life & Passion of Miss Florence Nightingale @ Providence Mount St. Vincent Chapel
Sep 30 @ 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm

Nightingale: A Musical Regarding the Life & Passion of Miss Florence Nightingale

Reception following
Free!

In celebration of Florence Nightingale’s 200th birthday, Nightingale by Pamela Gerke brings Nightingale’s story to life through original music and scenes of her life in a 2-act musical that reframes and makes relevant her image for modern audiences.

Act I follows Nightingale through her 20s as she struggles to understand her passionate nature and to follow her “call from God,” all the while chafing at the expectations placed on her by her wealthy British family and Victorian society.

In Act II, Nightingale supervises female nurses in the Crimean War where she creates order out of chaos, despite the horror of war and opposition from entrenched medical and military authorities. By the end of the Crimean War she had become world famous and during the last fifty years of her life worked for healthcare reform, the creation of nurse training and the profession of nursing, and much more.

The musical will be in a staged reading format and is produced by HEARTS: Health & Arts in collaboration with Admiral UCC and Providence Mount St. Vincent. Nightingale will also be performed at Admiral UCC, Sept. 23, 3 pm; see AdmiralChurch.org.

Haunted Hike @ Kiwanis Schoenwald Park

Haunted Hike

Saturday, October 13, 2018

Kiwanis Schoenwald Park

16030 Sylvester Road SW

Burien, WA

(Drive behind Sylvester Middle School)

5:30-8:30 pm

Boy Scout Troop 360 (Lake Burien Presbyterian Church) is hosting this great family event. Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troops, and other community groups from across the region, are coming together to offer a haunted hike this Saturday, October 13, for all kids and their families in the West Seattle area. The cost is $2 per person. There will be Halloween-themed displays and activities along the trails throughout this beautiful, forested park.

Everyone should bring a flashlight to help as they walk from display to display because the trails can be very dark. There will also be Halloween treats available at many of the displays. Roasting monkey brains that strangely look a lot like marshmallows will occur as well. The kids will have lots of fun, and this event is a great way to learn more about the many Scouting youth programs that are available to families in the area.

And the rumors that a 10-foot tall T-Rex skeleton will be roving the park in search of Cub Scouts to eat may be true. But our hero Boy Scouts, using spears, will be protecting all kids from this largest carnivore in King County. Listen for the roaring as you start your hike.

The Whale Trail: Kin-directed prey-sharing behavior @ Dakota Place Park
Nov 8 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Family feast: Kin-directed prey sharing behavior in northern resident killer whales
Presentation by Brianna Wright

When: November 8th, 2018 7:00-8:30 Doors open at 6:15

Where: Dakota Place Park 4304 SW Dakota

Cost: (updated) $10 General Admission; Kids under 12 are Free

Advance tickets: https://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3739714

Presented by The Whale Trail

Resident killer whales prey almost exclusively on salmon and depend particularly on Chinook (the least common species of salmon in the Pacific Northwest), which makes up the majority of their known diet. Despite the importance of Chinook to the survival of individual killer whales, they frequently choose to share this critical resource with family members. Brianna Wright, Eva Stredulinsky, Graeme Ellis and Dr. John Ford conducted a 12-year study (2002-2014) examining patterns of prey sharing behavior among northern resident killer whales. In particular, the talk will discuss the prevalence of prey sharing between close maternal relatives, and the role that this cooperative behavior may have played in the evolution of this population’s unusually stable social structure.

A scientific article presenting the results from this study, entitled “Kin-directed food sharing promotes lifetime natal philopatry of both sexes in a population of fish-eating killer whales, Orcinus orca”, is available free of charge from the journal Animal Behavior at the following link: http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0003347216000737

About the Speaker

Brianna Wright holds a BSc. in Biology and Anthropology from the University of Victoria and a MSc. in Zoology from the University of British Columbia. She began her career in whale research as an undergraduate co-op student with Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s marine mammal research group in 2007, transitioning to full-time work as a research technician for the same team in 2008. Her graduate thesis used Dtags (a suction-cup attached device that records dive depth, body position and underwater sound) to investigate the fine-scale foraging behavior of resident killer whales. In 2014, Brianna graduated from UBC and returned to the Pacific Biological Station in Nanaimo, where she currently works as a marine mammal biologist for Fisheries and Oceans Canada. In 2016, she published a paper with Eva Stredulinsky, Graeme Ellis and John Ford about prey sharing behavior by resident killer whales and its influence on the evolution of their unique social structure. This paper was awarded Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s Paper of the Year award in 2016. Her recent research includes projects on resident killer whale population monitoring, feeding behavior and echolocation, as well as habitat modeling for large baleen whales to help reduce the impact of vessel strikes on these vulnerable populations.

No one tells him that if he stays over 24 hours and fails to break the curse, he too becomes Stupid. But, he has fallen in love with a girl so stupid that she has only recently learned how to sit down.

Native Plant ID and Invasive Plant Removal Along Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail @ Thistle Street Green Space
Dec 1 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

A beautiful area called the Thistle Street Green Space along the
Longfellow Creek Legacy Trail needs your help in a battle against invasive
species. Next to a local pea patch garden, Chief Sealth High School,
and Longfellow Creek, this piece of green space requires regular
maintenance to keep it clear of invaders like Himalayan
Blackberry, Buttercup, Herb Robert, and others. Come volunteer with
DIRT Corps and learn how to identify both native plants and invasive plants
as well as how to remove all kinds of invasive species so native
plants can thrive. Afterwards you can walk the trails and explore this
hidden gem in Delridge.

‘M. Butterfly’ @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
Jan 24 @ 7:30 pm

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

M. Butterfly
By David Henry Hwang

988 Tony Award Winner – Best Play

1988 Drama Desk Award Winner – Outstanding New Play

1989 Pulitzer Prize Finalist

When we build fantasies to hide the truth, what happens when it all comes tumbling down? Clever parallels to the famous opera Madame Butterfly abound in this fearless play about a French diplomat who falls for a Chinese opera star: the ideal, exotic woman in his mind, but in reality, a man with a secret mission. Rich with deeper themes, M. Butterfly confronts the perception of Eastern culture by the West and the persistent romanticism that clouds it.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

“With M. Butterfly David Henry Hwang joins the first string of American playwrights. This is an audaciously imaginative play, big in conception and theme, and a satisfying instance of a talented writer hitting full stride.” —Variety

“It will move you, it will thrill you, it may even surprise you. It is a play not to be missed, and it is a play once caught that will never be forgotten.” —NY Post

M. Butterfly
By David Henry Hwang

988 Tony Award Winner – Best Play

1988 Drama Desk Award Winner – Outstanding New Play

1989 Pulitzer Prize Finalist

When we build fantasies to hide the truth, what happens when it all comes tumbling down? Clever parallels to the famous opera Madame Butterfly abound in this fearless play about a French diplomat who falls for a Chinese opera star: the ideal, exotic woman in his mind, but in reality, a man with a secret mission. Rich with deeper themes, M. Butterfly confronts the perception of Eastern culture by the West and the persistent romanticism that clouds it.

UPDATE – SOLD OUT! ‘Clash of the Wolves’ silent film with Dennis James on the mighty Wurlitzer @ Kenyon Hall
Feb 17 @ 7:30 pm

The Master of the Mighty Wurlitzer returns for another silent film adventure. This time it’s Rin-Tin-Tin in “Clash of the Wolves,” a 1925 classic, co-starring Charles Farrell.

“Clash of the Wolves” was Rinty’s seventh film, and the first in which he was directed to show a lighter side. As is his practice, Dennis has put together an original score for the film, assembling actual period-published silent film compositions, and using those typical of the sort used by theatre organists in the 1920s.

Every time Dennis visits Kenyon Hall, I’m reminded of what a privilege it is to experience his remarkable playing. And after each performance, I remind him that he’s a true genius.

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.

To make a reservation, please e-mail kenyonhall@earthlink.net with your request. You’ll receive an e-mail confirming your reservation. For complete program information, please visit www.kenyonhall.org.

By Annie Baker

Time Magazine – 10 Best Shows of 2015
Nominated for 6 Drama Desk Awards
Nominated for 5 Lucille Lortel Awards

At a weekend bed & breakfast, the shadow of infidelity hangs over a young couple struggling to rebuild their relationship – when the elderly owner shares her own memories, ghosts real and imagined arrive to haunt the living. Blending keen realism with the eerily supernatural, this quiet tale from a Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright is unafraid to seek beauty in one of the most startling places: the solitude of human experience.

Intersections Festival @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Mar 21 @ 2:00 pm

Intersections: A Celebration of Seattle Performance will be happening for the second year, this March 21-24, 2019 at Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in the Delridge neighborhood. Intersections showcases performers in improv, sketch, stand-up, burlesque, storytelling, spoken word, music, theatre, and dance; however, it doesn’t end there.Intersections remains committed to its focus on equity, inclusion, and representation. “Seattle is a diverse city,” says Jekeva Phillips, one member of the all-womxn team, “Why are we only seeing the same faces and hearing the same voices?” Phillips (who is featured in City Arts Magazine’s 2018 Future List) was approached about the project by Natasha Ransom, and Kinzie Shaw of FEELINGS, an Improv duo which aims to amplify intersectional feminism in the face of a white-cis-hetero patriarchy.

The four-day festival will feature a myriad of comedy-related acts from Seattle’s best and brightest POC, Queer, Trans, non-binary, and neurodiverse performers. Each show is a different experience loaded with a variety of acts. No show in the festival will be the same, so the Intersections team strongly encourages patrons to be a part of it all. “We are so excited to be in the audience for this festival,” Say co-founders Natasha Ransom and Kinzie Shaw “The talent is just unbelievably good and we want to soak as much of it in as possible.”

Don’t miss our Giving Party, coming up Saturday March 9th from 2-4pm at Capitol Cider. It’s completely free to attend! For more information about the festival, like Intersections: A Celebration of Seattle Performance on Facebook or visit the website: www.intersectionsfestival.com

Intersections is funded in part by 4Culture, Youngstown Cultural Arts Center, Plann
