What To Expect


The February show stars Scotty McQueen!

Scotty McQueen is a mind reader,  creative consultant, presentation coach, method actor, conceptual artist, and motivational speaker.  He is conducting PhD research on the psychology and performativity of non-physical communication at University College Cork, where he was a first prize winner of the Doctoral Showcase.  He has been featured on TV3, headlined at the National Circus Festival of Ireland and the Spiegeltent Festival in Wexford, performed for Boeing and Heineken, and consulted for Microsoft and the BBC. He holds an MFA in Physical Theatre from Tuscany’s Accademia dell’Arte and an MPA in Strategic Public Policy from the American University of Paris.

It also features contortionist Alexandria Ostrem and hula hoop performer Shannonagins! Alexandria Ostrem has been performing all around the Seattle area and does a quite amazing act that is also a lot of fun to watch – and Shannonagins performs a really fun act with multiple hula hoops that I am excited to see!

And the band – I saw these guys play and have periodically pestered them and I’m excited to finally have Marmalade playing!!

It is one heck of a line up – I’m excited for this one! Tickets are available at the button link above.


Start Times

The band will play from 3:30 to 4:00.

The show will run from 4:00 to 5:30.

We would love to see you for all of it, but if you don’t think your kids will be up for the whole stretch, then you can arrive at 4:00, catch the tail end of the band, and not miss the show!

This show has a simple concept. I keep going to see other performers and some of them are GREAT. But they are all performing late at night in 21 and over venues. I want to show some of these acts to my kids – but I can’t! And while prices are as affordable as possible, tickets can still be out of reach of many people.

So I am bringing these acts to a venue where you can take your family and where ticket prices will not be a barrier. The acts are NOT children’s acts – but they are family friendly and you will ALL enjoy the show – art should be accessible to EVERYONE.

There are magicians, jugglers, dancers, circus artists, hula hoopers, and more – every show is different, but will come let you and your kids see what people are doing in Seattle!

The show is about ninety minutes long.
