Olympic Ballet Theatre Launches New Season with Autumn Auction & Costume Ball

Olympic Ballet Theatre (OBT) is jumpstarting its 2022-2023 performance season with an evening of philanthropy and pre-Halloween fun. The 2022 Autumn Auction & Costume Ball is taking place at the Nile Shrine Center in Mountlake Terrace on Saturday, October 29, 2022.

This exciting fundraiser features a delightful dinner, live and silent auctions, performances of excerpts from the upcoming season, and opportunities to support OBT. The event is hosted by former FOX 13 anchor and reporter Matt Lorch. As a nonprofit, OBT relies on the generous support of donors and sponsors to sustain its operations, and all funds raised will support the season's productions. OBT's 2022-2023 performance season starts with the all-time holiday favorite The Nutcracker in December, spotlights new works in February's Debuts, brings back the timeless fairytale of The Sleeping Beauty in May, and culminates in an eclectic mix of classical and contemporary ballets in June's Summer Performance.

"Autumn Auction & Costume Ball is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and we are looking forward to finally gathering with our supporters in person after several years of canceled or virtual events," said Mara Vinson and Oleg Gorboulev, OBT Artistic Directors. "This event is just a few days before Halloween, so it's a fun opportunity for guests to dress up in costumes (or just dress up), see previews of the season's performances, and have a wonderful time supporting the arts."

Event tickets are $100 per person or $750 per table of eight. Guests can register for the event at https://cloud.broadwayworld.com/rec/ticketclick.cfm?fromlink=2200472®id=17&articlelink=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.olympicballet.org%2Fperformance-season%2Fautumn-auction-and-costume-ball%2F?utm_source=BWW2022&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=article&utm_content=bottombuybutton1.

Review: MR. DICKENS AND HIS CAROL at The Seattle Rep Photo
Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” is an enduring classic. We all know this. It’s never been out of publication since its first publishing in 1843. It has spawned numerous movie, TV, and stage adaptations from the serious to the Muppets. Now the Seattle Rep has come along with a World Premiere of Samantha Silva’s “Mr. Dickens and His Carol”, based on her book of the same name. Taking a supposed look at the creation of this classic tale, this historical fiction is heavy on the fiction and light on the history, cutting a wide swath with its poetic license about the author and turning him into a pompous buffoon in a story and a production in desperate need of an editor.
