It’s love season and we at TeenTix have many partners we adore (partner venues, that is). We love seeing our partners invest in new works, so we are thrilled to have three world premieres from TeenTix venues this February. Dacha Theatre, a new addition to the TeenTix Pass Program, is debuting the electro-synth musical An Incomplete List of All the Things I’m Going to Miss When the World is No Longer.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, ACT Theatre Core Company member Reginald André Jackson pursued an extensive research project about forgotten Black theatre artists, which has culminated in the production History of Theatre: About, By, For, and Near. The play explores whether the history of the oppressed can properly be shared without expressing oppression.

ArtsWest is taking a look at recent history with An Endless Shift, a timely verbatim theater project about Seattle nurses during the pandemic. It will be exciting to see how these new works develop and continue their journeys elsewhere.

Meanwhile, The 5th Avenue Theatre is celebrating a magical musical theater classic with Producing Artistic Director Bill Berry’s rendition of Into the Woods. This is the first of two Sondheim shows that The 5th is producing this season.

If you want to see another classic, consider Oscar Wilde’s perennial comedy A Woman of No Importance. This performance by Taproot Theatre Company promises charm and wit as we follow the glittering scandals of those in the company of Lord Illingworth.

For a tragic side of the Valentine’s season, Pacific Northwest Ballet is producing their interpretation of Giselle. Take in Jerome Kaplan’s costume design in this classic ballet ghost story of vengeance, grief, and heartbreak in misguided love.

While we’re in the mood for dance, join the Meany Center and the Ragamala Dance Company in Fires of Varanasi: Dance of the Eternal Pilgrim. The mother-daughter partnership of Ranee, Aparna (Artistic Directors) and Ashwini Ramaswamy (Choreographic Associate) are presenting an immersive, time-suspending ritual for the stage.

Northwest Film Forum, meanwhile, is providing films in their annual Children’s Film Festival. The festival showcases the best of international cinema for families, while maintaining a community-minded experience.

Finally, if you’re looking for more films, the National Nordic Museum and Pacific Sámi Searvi are presenting the Sámi Film Festival. This event boasts onsite and online events, attracting global audiences to a compendium of Sámi stories. No matter what you’re looking for, TeenTix has events you love that you can enjoy with the people you love.
