House of Thee UnHoly, the epic, 90-minute, non-stop, explosion of ‘70s mythology and sexually-charged psychedelia, returns to Seattle’s Triple Door stage for five nights and ten shows March 12 through 16.

Featuring Druids, Vikings, Hindu goddesses, sex, drugs, rock ’n’ roll — and a little bumble bee with a big problem – thirteen dancers, three singers and four musicians will rock audiences in a radical rocklesque celebration of the 21st Century’s most excessive decade.
The Triple Door joins creative director paulanow (formerly known as The Swedish Housewife), along with a kaleidoscope of Seattle’s most outré and imaginative choreographers, dancers, burlesque performers, musicians, costumers, stage designers and theatrical performers in the show’s first staging since 2011.

Music is your master as “Sarah Rudinoff and Jen Ayers deliver powerful, mind-blowing vocals. The band alone is worth the price of admission,” reported The Examiner during the show’s last run. “The show delivers on its promise to leave you dazed, confused, and ecstatic.”

“House of Thee UnHoly, clearly has a rabid following, if the whoops and hollers and cheers are any indicator,” said The Seattle Times. “The costumes, extravagantly fanciful.” “House of Thee UnHoly’s sheer visual and auditory spectacle cannot be overemphasized,” wrote Culture Mob, and The Seattle Weekly called it, “Broadway level Burlesque.”

The 2014 production includes; Dancers, Lily Verlaine, Waxie Moon, Indigo Blue, Inga Ingenue, Douglass Ridings, Red Delicious, Paris Original, Polly Wood, Gerard D, Heidi Von Haught, Tory Tiara, Jody Kuehner and Mimi Me.  Singers, Sarah Rudinoff, Jen Ayers and Zack Davidson. Musicians, Andy Stoller, Ryan Burns, Darren Loucas and Mike Stone.  Set design by Jim Guerci and Chris Ford. Contributing costumers include, It’s Mark Mitchell and Lisa Marie.
House of Thee UnHoly  March 12-15, 7 and 10p.m.  Sunday, March 16, 5 and 8 p.m.

The Triple Door, 216 Union St., downtown Seattle.

Tickets range from $20 to $45. Must be 17 or older to attend. Call 206.838.4333 or see www.tripledoor.com for tickets and more information.
