Gather ’round once again, boys and girls, to hear suggestions about how to spend your weekend. This week, our recommendations have a decidedly magical, fairy-tale flavor, starting with …
“Cinderella”: Seattle Times reviewer John Hartl says the 5th Avenue Theatre’s version of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s classic is very enjoyable, largely due to a crackerjack cast of local actors. For a less conventional, more intimate staging, look to Northwest Puppet Center’s “Cenerentola” (pronounced Chen-er-EN-to-luh) based on a 19th-century Venetian script.
“A Festival of Lessons and Carols”: What’s more celestial than a choir of boys’ voices, lifted to the rafters? Northwest Boychoir and Vocalpoint! Seattle join once again this holiday season for an annual concert patterned after the Christmas Eve service at King’s College in Cambridge, England. Performances take place at several churches between Dec. 9 and 21.
“Pathway of Lights”: Finally, take a loved one in hand and bundle up for a stroll around Green Lake, which will become a fairyland of luminaria on Saturday evening. Music, warm drinks and treats are promised.
