NOV 26 – DEC 26 2021

Book, Music and Lyrics by Justin Huertas

When you’re the youngest sibling in a family of secret warriors who for generations have protected Seattle from monsters and demons, living up to your Lola’s expectations is, in a word, daunting. Adarna’s mistakes were cute at first, but when they begin to cost her family more than she ever imagined, she must decide what she would sacrifice to save them. Loosely adapted from the 16th century Filipino epic poem  Ibong Adarna, playwright-composer-lyricist Justin Huertas returns to his  Lizard Boy roots with a sweet and intimate actor-musician musical adventure.

Winter Care Package Drive at West Seattle High School
Dec 1 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

During school closure in winter break (12/18 2021-1/2 2022), the Teen Health Center will be closed and students will not be able to access the Health Center’s services. The 16 day break can become a gap for those students who regularly rely on the Teen Health Center for access to hygiene products. With that issue, I proposed the idea to assemble winter care packages to provide the appropriate hygiene necessities needed throughout the break.

Here are hygiene necessities that would be included in care packages:
– packaged masks
– unopened hand sanitizer
– unopened protein bars/granola bars/snacks
– unopened bars of soap
– unopened deodorant
– unused toothbrushes
– unopened toothpaste
– unopened chapstick
– hand warmers

Donations of clothing (used): jackets, sweaters, pants, socks, gloves, hats, scarves, t-shirts, blankets

Donation collecting events:
at WEST SEATTLE HIGH SCHOOL’S HISTORIC ENTRANCE
3000 California Ave SW

– Wednesday, November 24th 2021 from 3-5 pm
– Wednesday, December 1st 2021 from 3-5 pm
– Wednesday, December 8th 2021 from 3-5 pm

The Teen Health Council will then assemble care packages and students at West Seattle High School can pick them up during the week of 12/13-12/17, the week before winter break starts.

NOV 26 – DEC 26 2021

Book, Music and Lyrics by Justin Huertas

When you’re the youngest sibling in a family of secret warriors who for generations have protected Seattle from monsters and demons, living up to your Lola’s expectations is, in a word, daunting. Adarna’s mistakes were cute at first, but when they begin to cost her family more than she ever imagined, she must decide what she would sacrifice to save them. Loosely adapted from the 16th century Filipino epic poem  Ibong Adarna, playwright-composer-lyricist Justin Huertas returns to his  Lizard Boy roots with a sweet and intimate actor-musician musical adventure.
