‘M. Butterfly’ matinée @ ArtsWest Playhouse & Gallery
Feb 17 @ 3:00 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

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.

Exploring Our Collective Memory: An Invitation to Reflect on U.S. History @ Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish
Feb 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Our Lady of Guadalupe Immigrant Ministry is excited to host Professor Catherine Punsalan-Manlimos, PhD from the Institute for Catholic Thought and Culture at Seattle University on Thursday, February 28th at 7:00 p.m. in the School Hall.

Together, we will explore our collective memory with regards to our immigration history. Most of us in the U.S. today are either immigrants or the descendants of immigrants. With the exception of our Native American brothers and sisters and the descendants of enslaved free peoples from Africa, many of us or our forebears immigrated to this country seeking a better future and freedom from persecution, violence, or poverty. Reflecting on the history of U.S. immigration in light of Catholic Social Traditions can remind us why fighting for policies that honor the dignity of our migrant brothers and sisters is a matter of faith and a matter of justice.

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

John
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.

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

“Annie Baker’s John is so good on so many levels that it casts a unique and brilliant light.” – The New Yorker

“Baker does not merely tell a scary story. She shows them, piling up like ghosts of amputated limbs from the war wounded, and makes them riveting, unpredictable, altogether human theater.” – Newsday

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

At ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery:

John
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.

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

“Annie Baker’s John is so good on so many levels that it casts a unique and brilliant light.” – The New Yorker

“Baker does not merely tell a scary story. She shows them, piling up like ghosts of amputated limbs from the war wounded, and makes them riveting, unpredictable, altogether human theater.” – Newsday

Northern Ballard performs at C & P Coffee Company (WSB sponsor). More from C & P:

Since all the hipsters moved in, Northern Ballard is considering relocating to somewhere less pretentious. In an attempt to drown out the perpetual construction, Northern Ballard preserves its sanity writing songs about love, happiness, and infrastructure. His English accent and penchant for ripping off the classic 60’s songbook mark him up as one of the leading plagiarists of our time.

Steve Marx is familiar to Kenyon Hall audiences as the banjoist in the popular Bluegrass band, Ryegrass. What you may not know is that Steve’s grandfather was one of America’s greatest lyricists, the esteemed Gus Kahn. (Just a few of his songs—Memories, Toot Toot Tootsie, It Had to be You, Makin’ Whoopee, and Dream a Little Dream of Me.)

Steve has created a new show that features the music of Grampa Gus, as told with his band, One Planet Jazz, and with Hollywood movie clips and family stories. Fly down to Rio with Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, and an ensemble of winged bathing beauties. Watch Marilyn Monroe croon “I’m Through With Love” in a most-revealing dress. And find out how, after producing over 200 rejected lyrics, Gus came to write his first hit song.

NORTHWEST BOYCHOIR PRESENTS–“CHORAL TRADITION” @ Holy Rosary Church
Mar 24 @ 7:00 pm

The highly acclaimed Northwest Boychoir announces their Choral Tradition series for March 2019. Now in its fifth season, Choral Tradition celebrates the breadth and diversity of the classical choral repertoire.

This year’s program will feature John Rutter’s Gloria, and great choral works by Brahms, Debussy, Lauridsen, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Orff and Rheinberger for both treble and SATB male chorus.

About the Northwest Boychoir

The Northwest Boychoir’s musical sophistication, rich tonal quality, and dedication to exacting perfection have established its reputation as one of the nation’s pre­mier children’s choirs. Along with Vocalpoint! Seattle, the Northwest Boychoir has trained thousands of young singers for more than 40 years, and more significantly, shaped the lives of our region’s youth by teaching important lessons in personal commitment and the value of teamwork. Led by Joseph Crnko, now in his 35th year as Music Director, the Choir’s staff of professional musicians and educators is engaged in the teaching of a rigorous curriculum that trains young singers, 6-18 years old, to be fully-skilled musicians who sing at the highest professional level, read music fluently, and perform in professional settings with confidence.

For more than 30 years, the Choirs have maintained a close working relationship with the Seattle Symphony and participate annually in the performance of great choral works. Last February, the Northwest Boychoir joined with the SSO to perform Vivadi’s Gloria, and then in March returned to Benaroya Hall for performances of Orff’s Carmina burana. The following month, the Boychoir again collaborated with the Seattle Symphony and Seattle Symphony Chorale for performances of Stravinsky’s Perséphone. The Northwest Boychoir will perform the Debussy Nocturnes in Maestro Morlot’s Farewell Concert with the Seattle Symphony in June.

Last June, the Northwest Boychoir presented their annual classical series, Choral Tradition, featuring Michael Haydn’s Missa Sancti Aloyssi and Francis Poulenc’s Gloria. At the end of the year, the Northwest Boychoir was honored to perform with Music of Remembrance when they presented their 20th Anniversary concert at Benaroya Hall. The Northwest Boychoir closed its season with eight performances of its 40th season of A Festival of Lessons & Carols, including a presentation with Northwest Sinfonia at Benaroya Hall.

Along with a very active performance schedule, the Northwest Boychoir is regularly contracted for recording engagements. Last year the Northwest Boychoir recorded the soundtrack for the motion picture Prospect, and can also be heard in Cirque du Soleil’s Volta. The Northwest Boychoir serves as the official “Singing Ambassadors” of Washington.

Apology Ceremony @ Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center
Mar 30 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

TIME TO APOLOGIZE TO THE DUWAMISH TRIBE?

It’s happening Saturday, March 30 at Duwamish Longhouse, 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
4705 W Marginal Way SW

“In the spirit of cultural humility, we apologize – and listen to the voices of the land,” reads a flyer put out by the Grandmothers Global Healing Movement, founded by Norma Jean Young, focused on bringing the Wisdomkeeping Grandmother’s presence and voice back to the world.

Young first gathered global Grandmothers in 2003 at “Getting Down to Earth with the Grandmothers” on Whidbey Island, at Whidbey Institute. It featured five key grandmothers: from New Zealand, Tibet, Hawaii, Lummi, and Grandmother Vi Hilbert of Upper Skagit Nation.

The Apology will be focused on the Duwamish people, and all Native American tribes, at a ceremony March 30 at the Duwamish Longhouse, 4705 W. Marginal Way SW, Seattle at 1 p.m. A meal will be served at 3 p.m., with music throughout.

The apology is co-sponsored by the Duwamish Longhouse and the Grandmothers Global Healing Movement. Featured speakers include H.E. Dagmola Kusho Sakya of the Tibetan Buddhist lineage; Rev. Kelly Brown, lead pastor of Plymouth Church Seattle; Pastor Pat Wright of Total Experience Gospel Choir fame; and others. Everyone is encouraged to bring food and gifting to the Indigenous, whether dollars, services or goods.

“This critical time of breakdown in our world culture demands the presence that holds life whole. Wisdom-keeping grandmothers have always been stabilizers, looked to for functional guidance to hold life whole – especially in troubled times,” says Young. “This is a healing event to bring together the essential components of healing—cultural humility, apology, listening, and taking action in partnership.”

Norma Jean Young, a reiki master, served as a healer and helper to Great Grandmother Vi Hilbert in the three years before she died. Hilbert, the last fully fluent language speaker of Lushootseed culture, was a most valued Grandmother taproot who served many Coast Salish tribes. She was named a Washington State Living Treasure in 1989, and received a National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1994, presented by President Bill Clinton.

John
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.

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

“Annie Baker’s John is so good on so many levels that it casts a unique and brilliant light.” – The New Yorker

“Baker does not merely tell a scary story. She shows them, piling up like ghosts of amputated limbs from the war wounded, and makes them riveting, unpredictable, altogether human theater.” – Newsday

First Saturday hikes in West Duwamish Greenbelt @ (see listing)
Apr 6 @ 10:00 am

Hiking season is beginning in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. Hike with the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group (www.wdgtrails.com) on guided walks to find birds, bugs, mushrooms, native plants, geology, and history. Meet the first Saturday of each month at 10 am, usually at the trailhead at 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly Street, but starting places may vary; watch postings for individual hikes. We hike mostly on constructed and maintained gravel trails, suitable for family outings.

The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, spreading over 550 acres in West Seattle from the tip of Pigeon Point to Westcrest Park. Urban forests are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty, contribute to our health, and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Here’s the schedule for the 2019 season. All hikes start at 10:00 am.

April 6: Bird watching hike with Scott Markowitz, an international birder, member of the board of directors at Tahoma Audubon. Meet at the Puget Park trailhead at 4418 21st Ave. S.W.

May 4: Insect hike with a bug club member.

June 1: “Walking Native Land” on National Trails Day with Ken Workman, a descendant of Chief Seattle and a member of the Duwamish Tribe. Ken will talk about his personal experience growing up in the greenbelt and his tribe’s use of the land and nearby Duwamish River.

The hike begins at 10 a.m. near the Chinese Garden at South Seattle College. We’ll walk down Puget Ridge to the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center and return. This hike is on unimproved trail with aspirations to be a connector between ridge and river, about two miles round-trip with 200 feet of elevation gain coming back. Wear good shoes or boots and be prepared for small obstacles like logs, brush, and walking near the edge of West Marginal Way.

July 6: Native plant identification with Steve Richmond of GardenCycles

August 3: Geology and land use history with Paul West and Craig Rankin

September 7: History of the greenbelt with Matt Groshong, Randy Nelson, and Craig Rankin

October 5: Mushrooms with Kim Traverse of the Puget Sound Myco Society

Office Hour
By Julia Cho

Susan Smith Blackburn Prize-winning playwright

Alarmed by his grisly writings, a professor invites a troubled student to her office to shed light on – and build a bridge across – the dark clouds that surround him. As the clock ticks down and tensions rise, she learns that notions of “good” and “bad” are dangerous illusions. A stirring call for empathy and a bold experiment in form, this searing play tackles thorny issues of gun violence, immigration, and “the other” to reveal our essential, human need for connection.

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

“…vital, honest, and valuable. …Office Hour is interested not only in the question of gun violence, but in the painful, isolating struggle faced by the children of immigrant parents in this country.” —NY Magazine

“…[an] urgent and sensitive drama… tense and extremely well thought out… What is so gripping about the play…is the ever-present fear of horrific violence that permeates the space, even as sympathy grows for Dennis. …Cho effectively calls for compassion and outreach from a society that commonly creates violent loners out of troubled children.” —Broadway World

Office Hour
By Julia Cho

Susan Smith Blackburn Prize-winning playwright

Alarmed by his grisly writings, a professor invites a troubled student to her office to shed light on – and build a bridge across – the dark clouds that surround him. As the clock ticks down and tensions rise, she learns that notions of “good” and “bad” are dangerous illusions. A stirring call for empathy and a bold experiment in form, this searing play tackles thorny issues of gun violence, immigration, and “the other” to reveal our essential, human need for connection.

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

First Saturday hikes in West Duwamish Greenbelt @ (see listing)
Jun 1 @ 10:00 am

Hiking season is beginning in the West Duwamish Greenbelt. Hike with the West Duwamish Greenbelt Trails group (www.wdgtrails.com) on guided walks to find birds, bugs, mushrooms, native plants, geology, and history. Meet the first Saturday of each month at 10 am, usually at the trailhead at 14th Ave. SW and SW Holly Street, but starting places may vary; watch postings for individual hikes. We hike mostly on constructed and maintained gravel trails, suitable for family outings.

The West Duwamish Greenbelt is the largest contiguous forest in Seattle, spreading over 550 acres in West Seattle from the tip of Pigeon Point to Westcrest Park. Urban forests are important community spaces that increase our city’s natural beauty, contribute to our health, and make the natural world accessible for everyone to enjoy.

Here’s the schedule for the 2019 season. All hikes start at 10:00 am.

April 6: Bird watching hike with Scott Markowitz, an international birder, member of the board of directors at Tahoma Audubon. Meet at the Puget Park trailhead at 4418 21st Ave. S.W.

May 4: Insect hike with a bug club member.

June 1: “Walking Native Land” on National Trails Day with Ken Workman, a descendant of Chief Seattle and a member of the Duwamish Tribe. Ken will talk about his personal experience growing up in the greenbelt and his tribe’s use of the land and nearby Duwamish River.

The hike begins at 10 a.m. near the Chinese Garden at South Seattle College. We’ll walk down Puget Ridge to the Duwamish Longhouse and Cultural Center and return. This hike is on unimproved trail with aspirations to be a connector between ridge and river, about two miles round-trip with 200 feet of elevation gain coming back. Wear good shoes or boots and be prepared for small obstacles like logs, brush, and walking near the edge of West Marginal Way.

July 6: Native plant identification with Steve Richmond of GardenCycles

August 3: Geology and land use history with Paul West and Craig Rankin

September 7: History of the greenbelt with Matt Groshong, Randy Nelson, and Craig Rankin

October 5: Mushrooms with Kim Traverse of the Puget Sound Myco Society

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 2 all-day

(Note: Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

West Seattle Community Orchestras’ spring finale @ Chief Sealth IHS Auditorium
Jun 7 @ 7:00 pm

“Out of This World!” West Seattle Orchestras’ spectacular spring season finale

Leading the evening, the Intermediate Orchestra under the direction of Mike Jauregui will trip you out of the universe with Holst’s “Jupiter, Bringer of Jollity” and “Rosin Eating Zombies from Outer Space.”

On a more serious, down-to-earth note the premiere of “Anthem to Courage”, written by West Seattle resident and WSCO musician Robert Duisberg, will be presented in honor of local artist and remarkable survivor, “Brenda.” In the words of the composer, the compelling main theme, the Amabile section, is a sort of “love song without words,a answered by a heroic brass chorus. All is framed by an Andante Solenne, a solemn processional, with chimes marking the march of our time as mortals, ending in the hopeful heroic strain of a vanishing solo horn.”

The West Seattle Wind Symphony portion of the concert, conducted by Anton Coleman, includes the haunting “O Magnum Mysterium,” written by Morten Lauridsen, an internationally revered composer with roots in the Pacific Northwest. The concert will conclude with “Give Us This Day,” composed by the late David Maslanka, a prolific composer for orchestra and wind ensembles. Pianist Dayana Capulong joins the WSCO Wind Symphony for this unusual piece featuring full wind ensemble with piano.

Explore the beach at low tide with Beach Naturalists @ Lincoln Park (beach) & Alki south beach
Jun 17 all-day

(Note: Beach Naturalist events occur between 10 am and 4 pm. Each day /event time varies with the tide and lasts about 2 hours. Low tide usually falls in the middle of the hours listed.)

Join trained volunteers from Seattle Aquarium’s Beach Naturalist Program for a free guided exploration at very low tide (note the dates and specific times for each day below) No reservations necessary.

Dress for the windy weather and wear shoes that can get wet and handle very slippery surfaces. This program designed for adults and 3 and older. All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Find events at Lincoln Park (beach) and South Alki/Constellation Park.

Stroll along almost any Seattle beach during low tide on a summer weekend and you’ll see that the shore is alive!

Not only will you witness Puget Sound’s multitude of marine plants and animals, you’ll also see beach naturalists: advocates for these living wonders sharing their knowledge with beachgoers.
Beach naturalists are local citizens who care about Puget Sound beaches and want to help protect them. More than 100 have volunteered to help people learn about and enjoy area shorelines. Beach naturalists know their beaches: they can help you enjoy the habitat without harming it; tell you what sea stars eat; explain why barnacles stand on their heads; describe how moon snails lay their eggs; and so much more. “The enthusiasm and excitement of our beach naturalists transfers directly to the public—it’s a wonderful, infectious thing!” beams Janice Mathisen, community outreach coordinator at the Seattle Aquarium. “To be able to meet a family and educate them on what a treasure we have here in Puget Sound is amazing.”

Duff McKagan, live in-store – all ages @ Easy Street Records
Jun 18 @ 7:00 pm

Join us Tuesday, June 18th at 7 pm for a live in-store performance from Duff McKagan at Easy Street Records! We are celebrating the release of his new solo album Tenderness out today (5/31)!

Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan’s new solo album, Tenderness, is a reflection on his experiences traveling the globe over two and a half years on GNR’s Not In This Lifetime tour. Encountering heartbreak, anger, fear, confusion and divide on his travels during this tumultuous time in our world history, McKagan channeled a collective hurt into songs of monolithic power. The album was produced by recent Grammy winner Shooter Jennings and features Jennings’ band.

Purchase the new album “Tenderness” from us in-store or online for guaranteed entry into this event. *Limited supply, first come, first served. BUYING ONE CD OR LP WILL GET YOU ONE WRISTBAND, GOOD FOR ONE ENTRY. Wanna get your friends or family members in? You’ll need to buy additional CDs or LPs.
