Sunset Baby

By Dominique Morisseau
OBIE and Steinberg Playwright Award-winning playwright
Seattle premiere

When the tough, independent Nina is visited by her father, a former revolutionary in the Black liberation movement, she can’t tell what he’s after–a fix to their broken relationship, or the cache of letters that ties their fates together. As father and daughter circle one another, old wounds are revealed, generational differences exposed, and blazing truths laid bare. Morisseau’s smart, entertaining and moving story about family, survival and the nature of liberation is “not only dynamic, it’s dynamite” (The New York Times).

Sep 26 – Oct 20, 2019
Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

“…smart, entertaining and moving…while asking penetrating questions about the nature of liberation. Is it possible to be a good revolutionary and a good parent? Why are the gains made by one generation so often casually thrown away by the next? And what are the things we do for love?” – The Guardian

The Originals – A World-Premiere Play @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Nov 16 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

The Originals – A World Premiere Play by Brandon Force

The Originals tells the story of three prep-school boys who are accused of plagiarism having turned in identical essays word for word, semicolon for semicolon, and two upperclassmen who are assigned the task of sussing out the truth, leading all five to decide for themselves what is more valuable – the truth or the schoolboy code of honor. Play Your* Part presents this world premiere in partnership with the GSBA Scholarship Fund, awarding scholarships to LGBTQ and allied students who exhibit leadership potential, demonstrate strong academic abilities, and are actively involved in school and community organizations. A Note on Casting – The characters in The Originals have been cast regardless of the actors’ age, race, gender identity, or ability. By casting the play as such, we not only aim to engage under-invited artists and their communities, but the story of privilege, class, the education system, and the abuse of power, becomes the focus.

From the visionaries who rocked Broadway with Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Avenue Q and Spring Awakening, this bold and fierce new musical comedy—set to the iconic music of the 80s all-female rock band The Go-Go’s, including the hit songs “We Got the Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,”—is a spirited and sexy celebration of love in all its infinite varieties.

Head Over Heels

Songs by The GoGo’s

Conceived & Original Book by Jeff Whitty
Adapted by James Magruder
Tony Award-winning writer (Jeff Whitty)
Seattle premiere

A hilarious, exuberant musical that will get you grooving in your seat, Head Over Heels follows a royal family on an outrageous journey to save their beloved kingdom from extinction—only to discover the revolution they need is within their own hearts. From the visionaries who rocked Broadway with Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Avenue Q and Spring Awakening, this bold and fierce new musical comedy—set to the iconic music of the 80s all-female rock band The Go-Go’s, including the hit songs “We Got the Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,”—is a spirited and sexy celebration of love in all its infinite varieties.

“Characters clash, split and recombine in the time-honored tradition of Shakespeare’s great cross-dressing comedies “Twelfth Night” and “As You Like It.” […] here is the go-for-broke exuberance that made the Go-Go’s so irresistible.” – The New York Times

“A technicolor category unto itself […] The show is an ode to female independence with the winking spirit of a Shakespearean fairy and the neon edge of a rebellious ‘80s teenager, teaming up to beckon people into the woods.” – Entertainment Weekly

The Originals – A World-Premiere Play @ Youngstown Cultural Arts Center
Nov 23 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

The Originals – A World Premiere Play by Brandon Force

The Originals tells the story of three prep-school boys who are accused of plagiarism having turned in identical essays word for word, semicolon for semicolon, and two upperclassmen who are assigned the task of sussing out the truth, leading all five to decide for themselves what is more valuable – the truth or the schoolboy code of honor. Play Your* Part presents this world premiere in partnership with the GSBA Scholarship Fund, awarding scholarships to LGBTQ and allied students who exhibit leadership potential, demonstrate strong academic abilities, and are actively involved in school and community organizations. A Note on Casting – The characters in The Originals have been cast regardless of the actors’ age, race, gender identity, or ability. By casting the play as such, we not only aim to engage under-invited artists and their communities, but the story of privilege, class, the education system, and the abuse of power, becomes the focus.

Miracle on 34th Street: A Live Radio Play @ Kenyon Hall
Dec 6 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

Twelfth Night Productions (TNP) Twelfth Night Production (TNP) is proud to present The Lux Radio Theater version of the classic 1947 film Miracle on 34th Street. TNP’s Holiday Radio plays have become an annual tradition for community members seeking to revel in holiday cheer with friends and family. Previous radio show productions have included It’s a Wonderful Life and A Christmas Carol.

The radio play is based on the holiday movie favorite of the same name and will be presented as a live 1940’s radio broadcast. Miracle on 34th Street tells the timeless story of an old man who calls himself Kris Kringle and is hired as the Macy’s department store Santa. His claim to be the real Santa Claus becomes a court case and a young child’s belief could make all the difference. “Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to.”

Our cast of talented Radio players also includes our incredible Foley (sound effects) actors and the one-of-a-kind 1929 Wurlitzer Pipe Organ.

“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.”

This live radio show will be performed at historic Kenyon Hall, one of West Seattle’s favorite venues, December 6, 7, 13 and 14 at 7:30pm and December 8 and 15 at 3:00pm. Bring the family and make this a holiday tradition! Tickets are available online at Brown Paper Tickets, or at Kenyon Hall, 7904 35th Ave. SW, Seattle WA, starting an hour before the show on performance days. Prices are $20 for adults and $18 for students & seniors. http://www.twelfthnightproductions.org/

The radio play is based on the holiday movie favorite of the same name and will be presented as a live 1940’s radio broadcast. Miracle on 34th Street tells the timeless story of an old man who calls himself Kris Kringle and is hired as the Macy’s department store Santa. His claim to be the real Santa Claus becomes a court case and a young child’s belief could make all the difference. “Faith is believing when common sense tells you not to.”

Our cast of talented Radio players also includes our incredible Foley (sound effects) actors and the one-of-a-kind 1929 Wurlitzer Pipe Organ.

“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.”

This live radio show will be performed at historic Kenyon Hall, one of West Seattle’s favorite venues, December 6, 7, 13 and 14 at 7:30pm and December 8 and 15 at 3:00pm. Bring the family and make this a holiday tradition! Tickets are available online at Brown Paper Tickets, or at Kenyon Hall, 7904 35th Ave. SW, Seattle WA, starting an hour before the show on performance days. Prices are $20 for adults and $18 for students & seniors. http://www.twelfthnightproductions.org/

Seattle premiere

A hilarious, exuberant musical that will get you grooving in your seat, Head Over Heels follows a royal family on an outrageous journey to save their beloved kingdom from extinction—only to discover the revolution they need is within their own hearts. From the visionaries who rocked Broadway with Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Avenue Q and Spring Awakening, this bold and fierce new musical comedy—set to the iconic music of the 80s all-female rock band The Go-Go’s, including the hit songs “We Got the Beat,” “Our Lips Are Sealed,”—is a spirited and sexy celebration of love in all its infinite varieties.

“A technicolor category unto itself […] The show is an ode to female independence with the winking spirit of a Shakespearean fairy and the neon edge of a rebellious ‘80s teenager, teaming up to beckon people into the woods.” – Entertainment Weekly

As this fearless comedy unfolds, The Revolutionists rewrites the book on legacy, art and activism, feminism, compatriots and chosen sisters, and how we go about changing the world.

Jan. 15 preview, Jan 16 – Feb 9, 2020
Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 7:30 pm
Sundays at 3 pm

“…in this sparkling work, politics is very, very funny …These are hilarious and lovable women trapped in a history with a somber final act.” — Houston Chronicle
