The next Variety Show is Sunday, June 30 at 4 pm at the University Heights Center, and this one features Aaron J. Shay, Jenny Penny, and Luz!

All tickets are FREE, although reservations are appreciated, so you’ll be guaranteed a seat if we reach maximum room capacity! Click here to make a reservation.

Luz is coming! She’s one half of Duo Finelli, which is my son’s favorite act of any I’ve had in the show. Luz is a professionally trained clown, theremin player, and one-woman tornado of fun.

Jenny Penny is a Jill of all trades – aerialist, acrobalancer, fire performer, and circus entertainer. Jenny has been performing in Seattle and around the globe since 2004. I’ve done corporate events with her and can vouch for the fact that her act is completely captivating!

Aaron J. Shay is a singer-songwriter from Seattle who blends folk music and a punk sensibility with an affinity for science, technology, and speculative fiction. He delivers sing-alongs and stomp-alongs, all punctuated by funny musings on relationships, creativity, magic, and the future of humanity.

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.
