Holiday entertainment in West Seattle

Posted by Janet Gibson on Monday, December 12th, 2011 at 3:28pm.

For those who live there, West Seattle is a small town which is made up of a number of different neighborhoods, each with its own character and much loved by its residents. Whether it is the beach community of Alki or Fountleroy, a neighborhood perched on the side of the hill overlooking the ferry terminal, West Seatle has much to offer.

All of these neighborhoods are anchored by the downtown area called "The Junction" by locals because of its location at the junction of California and Alaska Aves. It has the feel of a typical English village High Street with its restaurants and indpendent stores. The Junction is a great shopping and dining destination for people throughout Seattle.


Perhaps the biggest jewel in the crown, however, is the ArtsWest Theater which offers first class entertainment throughout the year. This year, ArtsWest is contribution to the holiday spirit with their current production, "Every Christmas Story Ever Told (and then some) which was written by Michael Carleton, James FitzGerald and John K. Alvarez, directed by Kate Jaeger and features Nick Edwards, Justin Huertas, and Brian Lange

Tired of the same old Humbug? If you see any holiday show this season, why not see the one that has it all? Three actors launch themselves, and the audience, into a full-scale re-examination of all shows holiday, from Rudolph (with a slight adjustment for copyright issues) to “It’s a Wonderful Life” (in a second-act mash up that will blow your mind). And THAT’S NOT ALL! Traditions from around the world (some more questionable than others) and a finale that includes “Every Carol Ever Sung,” will leave you fully holiday-satisfied, with nothing left to do but wrap those presents and drink that nog.

 The production runs till December 24. 

Tickets are avalable online at
