CONSTANT SPACE at Local Sightings Film Festival

In the first seconds of the film, a dark screen appears and fuzzy neon green text slowly types the message: It is the distant future. Mankind has conquered many galaxies, but the universe is vast. The mega-corporation Apocalypse Inc. has dispatched exploration vessels to discover new resources and possibly new life. The following is a journey of Syrinx-87.” This opening statement is frozen on the screen for a full 75 seconds...

Happy June and Happy Summer!

I’m Katherine and I have more recommendations from TeenTix’s Arts Leadership Society, The New Guard. In May, we saw a ton of art around Seattle! We kicked it with fellow youth arts group, the Henry Teen Art Collective, at the Seattle Art Museum and explored the permanent collection. We watched as many SIFF movies as we could fit into our schedule. We also saw lots of theater; some of our...

Seattle Opera’s: La Traviata

An opera for die-hard-opera-fanatics and opera-newbies alike!

After attending Seattle Opera’s: La Traviata, I can officially say that I have been to the Opera!
As a die-hard-theater-goer, I figured it was high time I had my first operatic experience, but I was unsure of where or what to attend as a newcomer. Luckily, I had the perfect friend to phone! I immediately rang my wonderful sister- a trained singer, an opera fanatic and a Senior in the Audio Engineering Program at Evergreen...

As all you old school TeenTixers know, Pacific Northwest Ballet's wildly popular Nutcracker ballet is the only PNB show all year that is not TeenTix eligible. However, because they love us so much, PNB always puts aside a little stash of TeenTix tickets for one Nutcracker performance each year. It is an amazing, annual tradition that draws teens from far and wide. You won't want to miss it.

And this year, there's a new...
