Boeing 300x200One of France’s most popular plays, this fast-paced 1960s romp is just the ticket to kick off a big year for Music Theatre of Wenatchee, which includes the return of the MTW Apple Blossom show, Mary Poppins, to the Numerica PAC.
 
Winner of the 2009 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play, hilarious "Boeing Boeing" is a farce, focussed on Bernard, an American who’s devised a foolproof plan for keeping his love life in Paris exciting. He has three flight attendant fiancées and a bedroom for each. What could go wrong? Everything! 

Eventually, Bernard and his American friend are left desperately seeking an emergency exit as his fiancées all come in for a landing at the same time.
 
The "Boeing Boeing" cast includes both MTW veterans and new faces, and director John Mausser says energy is "sky high," as Kevin McKee, Matthew Pippin, T.J. Farrell, Tiffany Mausser, Tess Davison and Becca Chambers surge headlong into hilarious hijinks.

Dates & times: Jan. 14-16 and 21-23 at 7:30 p.m. Matinee at 2 p.m. on Jan. 23.

Place: Riverside Theatre, 233 B N. Wenatchee Ave., Wenatchee

Admission: Tickets at www.NumericaPAC.org or at (509) 663-ARTS • $15 regular admission • $12 for MTW members for Thursday performances

littlemermaid350Bring the whole family and go Under the Sea with StageKids as they present Disney's classic tale of a young mermaid and her adventures to find love on land.

Now you can be part of Ariel's world when Stage​ ​Kids W​A​, in partnership with the Numerica Performing Arts Center, and presenting sponsor, McQuaig and Welk, PLLC, present the musical, "The Little Mermaid Jr.," running Dec. 3-5​.​

Princess Ariel spots a human and falls in love. But not just any human -- a prince! The mermaid strikes a deal with a wicked sea-witch and leaves her ocean home for dry land.

Armed with a “dinglehopper” hairbrush, and with the help of her feathered and finned friends, Ariel follows her heart to win over the dashing Prince Eric.

The one-year-old youth theater program, Stage​ ​Kids W​A​, presents the musical version of the childhood story, based upon the 1989 animated Disney film. A youth cast of 52 actors from 19 local schools, will don more than 500 costume pieces to re-create the beloved tale.

“​Working with this community of talented kids and their parents has been a joy,” says StageKids founder and show director, Michelle McCormick. “Together we've created a beautiful show and memories that will last a lifetime.”

Don't be the poor unfortunate soul to miss out on this one!

Tickets are available at www.numericapac.org — $15 for adults and $12 for children.

MTViewConcertSeriesLogoFive of the eleven concerts at Leffler Field (next to Mountain View Lodge) in Manson are in the history books. The event has been a wonderful experience for those in attendance but we are concerned about the lack of local participation.
 
There are several reasons Sundays were picked for our concerts. First we hope to have folks stay over one extra day, which means more hotels, more food and more wine. Also we didn’t want to be in competition with local businesses and their events. And we wanted to offer our locals something to do on Sundays, usually a dead day.
 
We have also offered local non-profits and community groups the opportunity to make money for their organization. We call these groups “Partners” and they can make some serious money for their cause. For each ticket our Partner sells they receive $4, half the ticket price. So if you have an organization than would like to raise money please contact us 509-293-0225. So far we have had the Manson High School Class of 2015, Chelan Valley Hope and this week North Shore Bible Church.
 
We have a great show for Sunday, July 20th starting at 7:00.
 
Our Opening Act is Tim Snider and Caio AndreattaSnug - Unbridled energy, intensity, and musical eclecticism! Tim Snider plays and loops the electric violin, guitar, cajon, and vocals creating aural landscapes that are forceful, confessional, and raw. Coming from Reno, Nevada, Tim picked up the violin when he was just three years old. Over the years, exposure to rock music, songwriters, like Ben Harper and Paul Simon, inspired him to play the guitar. His sojourns in Spain and Cuba introduced flamenco, salsa, and Afro-Cuban rhythms into his repertoire. His music can be described as a world-folk-rock hybrid that is aimed at the heart, the brain, and the feet.
 
Snug Harbor, our headliner is a 9 piece funk-soul revival group, tucked away in the corner of the Northwest in the city of Bellingham, WA. From original compositions to classic covers, Snug Harbor is raw,high-energy soul musicand each live show contains elements ofimprovisation over heavy funk grooves. After six years of recording, performing, and touring this band has really hit its stride. In 2014, with the addition of three new members, Snug Harbor has been regarded as a top performer in the contemporary funk and soul market. Follow them online to find out more information on music related releases and tour dates.
 
Besides all the great music you can park for free at Leffler Field. Tickets are only $8 and remember $4 goes back to our community. You can enjoy our beer and wine gardens and each week we have different food, hamburgers, subs, etc. Also snow cones and popcorn are available. And there is more!!!!! We have a drawing each week for some pretty neat prizes.
 
So please join us and support your community. Tickets can be purchase at many local businesses including the Chelan Chamber of Commerce. You can purchase tickets online or at the gate.
