FREE PERFORMANCE AND Q&A FOR SHORELINE COMMUNITY!

It is the year of the Water Dragon and the eve of Grandma Maria’s 60th birthday. By the light of the karaoke machine, fueled by pork dumplings and lumpia, she shares a dark secret from her Filipino gangster past with one lucky grandchild. Ripping apart the memories of her five children’s so-called “childhood dystopia”, she sings, dances, and kills her way through 40 years of faulty memories made to make her look like a bad mother. Three generations, six women, one Dragon Lady. Check out the event’s Facebook page here.

Urinetown: The Musical opens this Fri., Oct. 7 and runs through Oct. 16. Get your tickets today!
urinetownPresented by Shoreline Community College and the Musical and Opera Program, this production is made possibly by the generous support of the Student Leadership Center.

Winner of three Tony Awards, three Outer Critic’s Circle Awards, two Lucille Lortel Awards, and two Obie Awards, Urinetown is a hilarious musical satire of the legal system, capitalism, social irresponsibility, populism, bureaucracy, corporate mismanagement, municipal politics and musical theatre itself! Hilariously funny and touchingly honest, Urinetown provides a fresh perspective of one of America’s greatest art forms.

In a Gotham-like city, a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanity’s most basic needs. Amid the people, a hero decides he’s had enough, and plans a revolution to lead them all to freedom!

Inspired by the works of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, Urinetown is an irreverently humorous satire in which no one is safe from scrutiny. Praised for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be, Urinetown catapults the “comedic romp” into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter.

October 7, 8, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16
Fridays and Saturdays – 7:30pm
Sundays – 3pm

Tickets are available at brownpapertickets.com or at the door.

GAC: The Iranian Nuclear Deal – Preventing a Weapons Program?, PUB 9208
Thurs., Oct. 6: 7-8:30 p.m.
iranian-dealCome to a talk featuring Dr. Halvor A Undem, University of Washington, Jackson School of International Studies, and former Advisor to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

In 2015, a landmark nuclear deal was reached between Iran and the P5+1 group of world powers (the United States, Great Britain, France, China and Russia plus Germany).  Crippling economic sanctions on Iran would be lifted once the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) certified that Iran had restricted its sensitive nuclear activities.  The White House says the deal will prevent Iran obtaining a nuclear weapon. Iran says it has the right to nuclear energy – and stresses that its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes only.

Additional support provided by the Center for Global Studies, Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies, UW. For more information about Dr. Halvor A Undem, visit our biographies page.
