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.

Celebrate the Trolls 20th Birthday at Trolloween

Trolloween is the Birthday celebration for Seattle’s famous Fremont Troll.

October 31st is the Trolls 20th Birthday!
October 31st is the Trolls 20th Birthday!

It is held on his Birthday October 31st at 7pm sharp.
The celebration  starts with the Troll under the Aurora Bridge (Troll Ave & N 36th St), as he loves a good laugh and a great story.   Then revelers will be off for the annual Haunt of Fremont (a procession of costumed dancers & performers (& you) taking over the streets of Fremont.)

This 20th anniversary of the birth of the Fremont Troll, you’ll be experiencing the tale of  Dante’s Inferno. Many seasoned artists and performers will present their twisted and whacky version of this dark tale, known to us as: ‘Just a little lover’s spat ~ honey’.

Rain or dry, revelers will sing, dance, marvel, and laugh their way through the dark underbelly of Dante and Fremont.   This is an unsweetened and piquant family event with plenty of fun to scare the laughs out of any stoic kid or stogy adult.

Come dressed as your favorite dead celebrity and take part in our costume walk across the final stage, under the Fremont Bridge, for the appreciation of your community.

If you can lend a hand to help pull off this fabulous piece of street theater, meet by the Troll at 6:30pm & check in with the volunteer coordinator to get a job.
