Have a friend that’s visiting Seattle this week? Why not share this podcast with them and give them ideas of something to do?
This week’s podcast features our top picks including a belly dance dinner, an improv happy hour and a benefit concert for the Philippines.
By tomorrow, Thursday, December 26, it’s probably time to get out of the house. So head on down to High Dive for Hip-Hop at the High Dive featuring Dirtay, Mike G. and M.A.R., and the The Sav among others. Good tunes in Fremont.
It is the giving season. On Friday night, December 27, help people who are in serious need. Roosevelt High School in Ravenna hosts An Evening with Stephanie Reese & Friends : A Benefit Concert for Victims of the Typhoon in the Phillippines. Great music, great cause.
Sick of Santa? Weary of wreaths? Tired of Tinsel? Unnatural Redhead Productions brings Midwinter Madness to the Jewelbox Theater in Belltown on Friday, December 27. That’s all kinds of burlesque for your viewing pleasure.
Friday, December 27, and Saturday, December 28, head on over to Unexpected Production’s Market Theater for Improv Happy Hour. That’s a sampler of improv formats and styles during what some would consider the best hour of the day.
Saturday, December 28, catch La Faux at Julia’s on Broadway on Capitol Hill. This show features a full cast of impersonators, dancers and outrageous acts. And if you’re hungry, chow down on some dinner while you enjoy the show.
Saturday, December 28, have a nice meal and check out some belly dancing at Kezira Cafe in Columbia City. The show is free with dinner. You really can’t go wrong with this one.
Dress up in your favorite handmade attire or make something new for Maker’s Masquerade at Jigsaw Renaissance in the ID on Saturday, December 28. While you’re there, learn how to make simple circuits using aluminum tape and LEDs. Pretty fun, right?
If mid-winter burlesque shows, improv comedy and local hip-hop don’t do it for you, that’s totally cool. Go with the flow. Seattle is packed with all kinds of holiday events this week. Here are a few of our favorites.
Tuesday, December 24, and various days throughout the week, the fun is at Re-Bar with Dina Martina’s Christmas Show 2013- The Best of the Best. This one promises pageantry and pathos, glamour and gifts, along with hilarity and hits.
Eclectic Theater on Capitol Hill presents Total Family Massage : The Musical. According to the producers, this show is a wacky, queer holiday musical for the family. Just don’t bring the kids. Probably good advice. Thursday, December 26, through the weekend.
Thursday, December 26, University Unitarian Church in the U District hosts Handel’s Messiah Sing-and-Play-Along. This is always a good one. Instrumentalists, bring your own music stand.
Saturday, December 28, Blessed Sacrament Church in the U District presents English Christmas: Traditional Carols for Christmas and New Year. The evening kicks off with the lighting of the 30 foot Blessed Sacrament Christmas Tree.
