Recommendation from The New Guard: Teen Arts Leadership Society
Hey TeenTix members! It’s Katherine and I’m bringing you more recommendations from The New Guard, TeenTix’s Arts Leadership Society.
During April, we saw a TON of different shows and went to many events. Our favorites were Here Lies Love (which is still playing!) at Seattle Rep, The Secret Garden at 5th Ave, and Ballet on Broadway at PNB. Personally, I saw The Fog Machine Play at *new partner* Copious Love Productions (which...Read more →
Ella Mahler, our next GiveBig SUPERSTAR is a bit of a chameleon. She is part artist (dancer+choreographer+performer), part fundraiser and arts advocate at The Ostara Group, part keen art consumer, and part TeenTix Advisory Council member. Ella is basically living the art nerd dream.Read more →
Do you know Tucker Cholvin?
Maybe you do – when he was 16, Tucker discovered the wonders of the TeenTix Pass. Tucker used TeenTix to see art all over Seattle – from the Pacific Northwest Ballet, to On the Boards, to the Seattle Art Museum. In his words “you name it - I went there using TeenTix.”
Tucker also hung around TeenTix HQ all the time. He was on the Teen Steering Committee (the precursor to The New Guard) AND he...Read more →
Recommendations from The New Guard: Teen Arts Leadership Society!
Happy Spring! I’m Katherine and I’m back with more recommendations from The New Guard, TeenTix’s youth leadership board. During March, we saw many different plays, films, and art exhibits. Some of our personal favorites were the Moisture Festival, SIFF movies, and Dry Powder at Seattle Rep (which is still running!). What did you see in March?
This month, we have three main recommendations. Firstly, the amazing Terracotta...Read more →
by Haley Witt, TeenTix Member & Seattle University Spectator Staff Writer
As the film opens, the voice of Samuel L. Jackson is rich and deep—almost booming. His capacity for intensity made him an arguably perfect choice to narrate this documentary. Typewriter clicks accompanied words on the screen, words from a letter written by James Baldwin to his literary agent. In the correspondence, he described the book he was writing, which would be titled “Remember This House”. After his death in 1987,...Read more →

TeenTix New Guardian April K. on meeting Maestro Ludovic Morlot: "I literally saw my soul depart my body"
Throughout my years in both middle and high school, I have tried to discover my various passions, my favorite subjects, all in search for a dream I wanted to pursue (that will earn me the most money).
During this time of constant change, I have kept one thing exactly the same: music.
I took regular lessons and participated in my local youth symphony, and as my love for the music grew, my participation gradually increased...Read more →
Even in the category of those with a proclivity towards the arts, every young person that decides to sign up for TeenTix has a different experience.
Of course, I’m biased. I’m a TeenTix devotee.
I moved to Seattle when I was 14 and, on recommendation from a family friend, joined TeenTix. I applied for The New Guard, TeenTix’s board of teenagers that keeps the organization accountable to the community it is supposed to be...Read more →
