ArtsWest-Presents-XANADU-20010101

Opening Wednesday, June 27, 2012, and playing through July 15, ArtsWest presents Xanadu. From the ArtsWest team that brought you Side Show and The Rocky Horror Show comes another summer-time sensation. This production, which features 16-21 year-old pre-professionals, brings back to the stage the Broadway World Award winner, Kody Bringman, as Sonny, and Broadway World Award nominee, Becca Orts, as Kira.

XANADU, with book by Douglas Carter Beane and music and lyrics by Jeff Lynne and John Farrar, is directed by Christopher Zinovitch with musical direction by Kimberly Dare.

Xanadu follows the journey of a magical and beautiful Greek muse, Kira, who descends from the heavens of Mt. Olympus to Venice Beach, California in 1980 on a quest to inspire a struggling artist, Sonny, to achieve the greatest artistic creation of all time – the first ROLLER DISCO…hey, it’s 1980! But, when Kira falls into forbidden love with the mortal Sonny, her jealous sisters take advantage of the situation and chaos abounds.

This hilarious, roller skating, musical adventure about following your dreams despite the limitations others set for you, rolls along to the original hit score composed by pop-rock legends Jeff Lynne and John Farrar, and includes, “Magic”, “All Over The World”, “Suddenly”, “I’m Alive”, “Evil Woman”, “Have You Never Been Mellow” and “Xanadu”, to name a few, and is based on the Universal Pictures’ cult classic movie of the same title, which starred Olivia Newton-John and Gene Kelly.

Tickets, $15.00 Adults; $10.00 (Seniors/those under 25), are available on-line at www.artswest.org, or through the ArtsWest Box Office at 206-938-0339. Showtimes: Wednesdays – Saturdays at 7:30pm; Sundays at 3:00pm. ArtsWest Playhouse and Gallery is located at 4711 California Avenue SW in Seattle, Wa.

ArtsWest produces artistic events so fiercely compelling that they require conversation, improve the imagination, and promote cultural vibrancy as a core value for the communities of Seattle. ArtsWest is a registered 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization.
