Theaters are a place of refuge, where we gather together with our hearts and minds to tell each other stories and process meaning as a community.  In this time of uncertainty, we wanted to share with you our light in the dark – the art, our community, and a place to share the good. 

Let there be Art

As we look to our artists to keep us healthy in mind and spirit, we are sharing with you links to art that won’t be restrained.

“So Many Heroes” is a beautiful tribute song honoring our nation’s frontline workers, written by Rich Gray. The music video is a collaborative performance between 75 students representing 16 children’s theatres across the country. We join them in saluting those who have made significant sacrifices during this unprecedented time. Watch and listen here.

Husky Deli, Jack Miller and his family, are icons in our West Seattle Alaska Junction and our dear neighbors.  They provide us with catering, cheese trays, lunches for our staff, and even that jug of creamer that runs empty during intermissions. They are open!!  Check-in with Jack.
