What to See: April 2017
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 Warriors of the First Emperor exhibit opening at the Pacific Science Center is going to be the hottest ticket in town. It’s “an immersive investigation of the science behind priceless artifacts including real figures from the terracotta army” and it sounds SO cool! PacSci recently became a FULL TeenTix partner so you can see the special exhibits (in addition to the IMAX educational films and Laser Dome shows) for only $5. Don’t miss this epic show!!
The show I’m most excited about this month is The Fog Machine Play by Copious Love Productions (a brand new TeenTix Partner!). It’s a collection of short plays that all include theatrical fog to “justify a 2013 purchase of a fog machine.” How totally weird and cool is that?! This show plays at the Slate Theater which is two blocks from the International District Light Rail Station; transportation couldn’t get any easier.
Any musical fans out there? Seattle Musical Theater is mounting a production of the classic Broadway show Kiss Me Kate. Two actors with a complicated history are forced to star in a play together, but soon gangsters arrive! Part slapstick comedy, part classic musical, and part epic romance. With an all-star cast, this production is going to be a smash hit. Have a picnic dinner in Magnuson Park and then see this awesome show!
Not interested in any of these events? We’re also excited about Here Lies Love at Seattle Rep (speaking of smash hit--save the date for their Teen Night on 5/12), Grounded at Seattle Public Theater, and To Kill a Mockingbird at Renton Civic Theatre. If you’re looking for something different, check out the Seattle Cherry Blossom and Japanese Cultural Festival at Seattle Center or the Youth Speaks Seattle Grand Slam at Town Hall (hosted by mayoral candidate Nikita Oliver). What are you looking forward to this month? Let us know in the comments and follow our social media for more recommendations!
