Help local needy families – drop off food & toys for Fire Department fundraiser thru Dec. 19

The Burien/Normandy Park & North Highline Fire Departments are seeking food and toy donations to help local families in need this holiday season, and they’ve got several Christmas Outreach Drop-off locations.

Donations of food or toys are being accepted at the new Burien Fire Station (900 SW 146th Street), North Highline Fire Stations (1243 SW 112th & 1606 S. 128th) and other local drop-off locations through Dec. 19 (full list below).

All donations will go directly to needy families in the area.

We’ve covered this great program before, and here’s a snippet from a prevous story by Michael Brunk:

Organized by firefighter Capt. John Zilke, the fire department works with local businesses and the community to gather food, gifts and cash donations in the months leading up to Christmas. Names of needy families are provided by the Department of Social and Health Services.

Help Foster Kids at the 3rd annual Berkshire Hathaway Real Estate Diaper Drive Dec. 3

It’s Time for the 3rd Annual Berkshire Hathaway Real Estate Diaper Drive – coming Saturday, Dec. 3 at the Normandy Park Winterfest – to benefit Treehouse, an organization that helps Foster Kids.

Donations can be made by dropping off (or shipping) diapers to the Berkshire Hathaway Real Estate office, located at 930 SW 152nd Street in Olde Burien between now and Dec. 6…OR you can drop them off at the Normandy Park Tree Lighting event on Dec. 3, where they’ll have a booth accepting diapers as well as cash donations.

Many of our Readers graciously donated in the past, and organizers are hopeful you are able to do so again this year.

All donations (both diapers and cash) will go to Treehouse, which says:

Treehouse provides academic and other essential support for more than 7,000 youth in foster care across Washington State each year. Our integrated, research-based services ensure that kids receive the support they need to succeed in school, fulfill key material needs, and provide important childhood experiences that every youth deserves and needs to graduate from high school at the same rate as their peers with a plan for their future.

“As foster parents my wife and I can attest that Treehouse is an amazing asset to foster children and the foster community in the Puget Sound area and this diaper drive accounts for the only diapers they will have each year for these foster kids,” said Tay Krull of Berkshire Hathaway. “Our community donated so many diapers, I can’t thank you enough. The first year we were able to raise 3,277 diapers and last year with all of your help we donated a whopping 10,677 diapers (pictured below).”

Winterfest will run from 5 – 6:30 p.m. at Normandy Park Towne Center, located at 19900 1st Ave South.

REVIEW: The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged) is a holiday gift within a gift + $5 Off Coupon!

By John Van de Ven

The Ultimate Christmas Show (abridged), is a holiday gift within a gift – or a pageant within a play.

The premise of the play (written by Reed Martin) is a pageant featuring a number of acts. Presented by St. Everybody’s Non-Denominational Universalist Church, during the church’s annual Multicultural Interfaith Holiday Variety Show and Christmas Pageant.

The pageant promises acts from performers such as Cirque du Sleigh, the Ramadancers, and The Kim Kardashian Can-Can Candy Cane Concatenation, just to name a few. While the pageant is expecting multiple acts, it quickly becomes clear that the only acts that have shown up are the three young women who are emceeing for the evening.

Directed by Marc “Mok” Moser, the show begins as three elfin-like silhouettes appear posing on stage. After a brief introduction from the three hosts (Beth Davis, Kris “Pepper” Hambrick, and Anna Richardson), the first act was to take stage.

Soon after an announcement is made that a massive snowstorm has hit and all roads leading to the theater have been effectively shut down. This was tragic because the scheduled acts had not arrived yet.

As the three hosts fumble about on stage wondering what to do, the idea of refunds quickly became a reality. The trio acts quickly, making the decision to tackle the bulk of the show themselves, at least until the other acts arrive.

The set is very homey and inviting (created by Cyndi Baumgardener, Eric Dickman, Paul Gould, and Maggie Larrick). Everything from the faux fireplace burning away in the center of the stage to the decorated tree with presents underneath to the manger, all are in sync with the holiday spirit.

The multi-talented Davis (who also plays an instrument in a couple of bits and directed the music for the show), Hambrick and Richardson take the spotlight and the show from this point on. The troupe goes above and beyond to entertain their snow-banked audience.

While it is quite humorous, the show does ask the question of what the holidays are really about. Are the holidays about Santa and presents, or is it about friends and family coming together or is it about the birth of Jesus? The answer comes in a series of songs and skits ranging from modified traditional carols to a traditional English style panto.

The pageant does require some audience participation, so wallflowers should come prepared to yell, clap and sing-a-long with the show. And it’s these bits that include the audience that bring a personal feel to the show, making each one unique.

A version of The 12 Days of Christmas is sung at one point and a recreation of the nativity scene is paired with the story of the birth of Jesus. Christianity isn’t the only religion represented either as we are taught about the meaning and purpose of Kwanzaa.

There is a 15-minute intermission before the final stretch of the show, with themed drinks available at concessions. The pageant finishes with Davis, Hambrick, and Richardson having done the entire show (and exceedingly well) from beginning to end.

At the end, just like that, the storm lifts and the roads are cleared, and we get to go home, filled with a little more joy and yuletide spirit than when we arrived. If I didn’t know any better, I would say that a little of that holiday magic took hold that night, and I’m glad it did.

So if you want to do something a little bit different, and experience something unique this holiday season, then make your way to the Burien Actors Theatre between now and Dec. 18. Show times are 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. Sundays.

ABOUT DAVID S. HOGAN
David started working on the craft of acting at Seattle University, and quickly learned he had a passion for Shakespeare. After graduating in 2000, he landed his first professional Shakespeare role in the Proteus with Wooden O Theatre. This would prove to be a lasting relationship, as David has performed with the company, any their affiliate, Seattle Shakespeare Company, many time, playing roles such as Caliban, Mark Antony, Grumio, and King Henry.

David’s pursuit of work in front of the camera began in earnest in 2011. Since then, he has booked many films, a TV pilot for Spike TV, worked along side Cary Elwes in A Bit of Bad Luck, and in 2012 he made is network television debut on NBC’s Grimm (Season 1, Episode 18).
