St. Francis of Assisi School’s ‘Mulan Jr.’ will be this Friday & Saturday

St. Francis of Assisi School will be presenting Disney’s ‘Mulan Jr.’ this Friday, Feb. 22 and Saturday, Feb. 23 at the Highline Performing Arts Center.

Join us as we tell a “wandering hero” story that originated in Asia where the tale is told in many versions. After making a mess of her betrothal ceremony and bringing shame to her family, a young woman leaves her home to join the army. While she is eventually discovered to be a girl, her adventures include saving the lives of her “fellow” soldiers and defeating the Huns. Mulan is honored by the Emperor, and upon returning home, she is surprised by a visit from her captain who now becomes her suitor.

Performances will be this Friday, Feb. 22 and Saturday, Feb. 23 at 7 p.m. at the Highline Performing Arts Center, located at 401 South 152nd Street in Burien.

Tickets can be purchased for $10 each at the school office or the ticket office on the night of performance.

COUPON: Save $5 off Visiting Cezanne at Burien Actors Theatre through Mar. 10

Burien Actors Theatre’s (“BAT”) production of the comedy-drama Visiting Cezanne is a funny and inspiring look at artists–and how we find our way, and ourselves, when all seems lost, and it opens on SATURDAY, Feb. 16.

Performances of this new play, which premiered in 2018, will run through March 10.

The Burien Actors Theatre production, written by Duane Kelly, features specialty drinks themed to the show and plenty of free on-site parking, plus BAT’s famous opening night party.

“VISITNG CEZANNE”
The magic in a paintbrush whisks unknown painter Nora Baker from 2016 New York back to 1900 France and the studio of Paul Cezanne. Nora, Cezanne and the play’s other characters explore what keeps an artist, or any of us, going when it all seems hopeless. Will this magical meeting change history? Heart and humor infuse this clever look at finding ourselves and our purpose.

David Templeton will perform in concert at Glendale Lutheran Church on March 1

Local musician David Templeton will play live in Concert on Friday, March 1, 2019, starting at 7 p.m. in the Glendale Lutheran Church Sanctuary.

Here’s more info about this talented local treasure, who did the outstanding original music/soundtrack to “The Maury Island Incident“:

Pianist, guitarist David Templeton brings to the stage, a passion of performance that is vibrant, rich and satisfying. The New Yorker calls him “One of the most accomplished and original new talents to hit the keyboards… thoroughly enjoyable”. David has performed at Carnegie Hall, Benaroya Hall, The Chateau Saint Michelle Winery as well as the Paramount Theater and Jazz Alley. His music can be heard on many radio stations around the country.

David started composing on piano at the age of three and went on to master other numerous instruments including cello, violin and guitar, which he weaves into a rich tapestry of orchestrations and multi-track compositions on his many CDs. The Northwest Area Music Association nominated his second album “Promise” for Recording of the Year. David will be sharing many of his beautiful compositions and stories with us the night of the concert.

Along with his noted music career, David has been tutoring several of our students here at Glendale Lutheran School, a ministry of Glendale Evangelical Lutheran Church. Glendale provides hands-on learning and challenging academics tailored to match the needs of each or our students. Using relevant and creative core curriculum, performance and innovative art workshops, we nurture students within strong Christian education components.

All proceeds from the David Templeton Concert will provide funds for scholarships and expanding technology and arts programs in our school. By investing in these programs, we are preparing our students with the skills they need to be successful in today’s world. We hope you will join us on March 1st for what promises to be a most worthwhile and enjoyable evening.

  • General Admission Seating $30
  • All funds raised with support Glendale Lutheran School Scholarships and the Arts.

Local filmmakers ‘Good Bootlegger’ series begins at Smith Tower

Seattle has its fair share of stories to add to Prohibition lore, having given rise to one of the most successful bootleggers in Pacific Northwest history – Roy Olmstead – and local filmmakers will be presenting this story in three parts at the Smith Tower beginning Monday, Mar. 4.

Presented by Steve Edmiston and Scott Schaefer (of “The Maury Island Incident“), this will be an educational and engaging speaker series told in three parts, combining history, mythology, whiskey, local references and good old-fashioned storytelling.

This series – to be held in the Smith Tower’s amazing 35th floor Observatory Bar – will explore the history of Olmstead’s rags-to-riches-to-rags story, from rising Seattle Cop to the Rumrunning King of the Northwest to inmate at McNeil Island.

Olmstead, who was busted by the Feds at the Woodmont Mosquito Fleet Dock in Des Moines on Thanksgiving Day, 1925, was said to even have a bustling “distribution warehouse” in the Sunnydale neighborhood of Burien.

The historic Smith Tower also plays a big role in this story, as it was home to Olmstead’s lawyer Jerry Finch, and Olmstead operated a remote radio station from there (his radio station became KOMO Radio).

  • Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $20 per person.
  • Seating is limited and standing room will apply if the event is sold out.
  • A full bar and menu are available for purchase throughout the evening for your enjoyment.
  • While we encourage you to attend all sessions, it’s not required to follow along with the storyline.

Beginnings: The Seduction of a Seattle Cop

How does a rising-star cop – the youngest Lieutenant in the Seattle Police Department – decide to secretly form a gang and become enmeshed in bootlegging, only to find himself racing his car off-road to avoid capture by Federal Prohibition Agents on March 22, 1920? Join The Good Bootlegger’s Guild as we launch the story of a young man from Nebraska who joins the SPD at the tumultuous time our State goes dry – well before national prohibition – and immerse yourself in a bygone era of dramatic Seattle politics and culture wars.

The Rise of Old Roy: Seattle’s Most Original Innovator

Fired from the Seattle Police Department, Roy Olmstead makes a historic decision that will change the business and political landscape in the Northwest throughout the 1920s: with his “free time,” he will go into bootlegging booze full time. What makes Olmstead different from every other bootlegger in Seattle, the Northwest, and the entire nation is a surprisingly classic tale of Northwest entrepreneurship, innovation, and spirit.

The Hard Fall: The Feds Fight Back

Olmstead’s good guy anti-hero popularity peaks, with his remarkable popularity driven by better whiskey, lower prices, and an ethical commitment to non-violence. Olmstead is labeled in the media as “The Good Bootlegger,” but it’s too good to last. While Olmstead is beloved by many as the opposite of a Capone-style, violence-driven whiskey operation, his success attracts the country’s most innovative federal prohibition agents to Seattle who determines – using new technology – to bring the Olmstead empire crashing down.
