Stop Binging and Start Living at Village Theatre!
By Village Theatre
Are you spending countless hours on the couch, binge-watching on your favorite streaming platform? It’s time to get unplugged. And what better place than live theater?
There’s nothing like that feeling you get when the lights darken, the music swells, and you’re whisked away to the lush forests of Sherwood, the vibrant culture of a Caribbean island, or the warm glow of a timeless love story. When you leave the theater, you’ll probably be humming your favorite song!
You can get that feeling right in the heart of downtown Everett with Village Theatre. For over 43 years, Village Theatre has been a leading producer of musical theater in the Pacific Northwest and has brought Broadway-caliber shows to Snohomish County since 1998 in the Everett Performing Arts Center.
With easy, free parking and a wide variety of great restaurants nearby, there’s no better place to step away from that smart device, and step into a story—five of them, actually!
It’s time to stop binging and start living with these hilarious comedies, heartwarming stories, and unforgettable musicals:
In October & November, enjoy swashbuckling fun for the whole family with Ken Ludwig’s Sherwood: The Adventures of Robin Hood. This rollicking and inventive play is packed with delightful thrills, amorous exploits, contagious laughs, and the best stage sword-fighting you’ll ever see! So get ready to dodge an arrow or two—you won’t want to miss a moment of this unforgettable adventure.
In January, celebrate the touching and true story of chart-topping musical legend Carole King’s remarkable rise to stardom in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical. Chock full of your favourite hits like “One Fine Day,” “The Loco-Motion,” and “You’ve Got a Friend,” Beautiful is more than just beautiful music— it’s the inspiring story of a groundbreaking female artist who forged her own path to find her own true voice and move the earth for us all.
In February and March, witness the origin story of America’s favorite sex therapist in Becoming Dr. Ruth, a tour-de-force one woman play about Karola Ruth Siegel, who had to flee Nazi Germany on the Kindertransport, become a sharpshooter in Jerusalem, and survive as a single mother in America. This triumphant and life-affirming story promises an unforgettable, hilarious, and uplifting evening of theater that will touch your heart and soul.
In April and May, enjoy The Fantasticks, Off-Broadway’s longest running musical. Full of buoyant humor and charming tunes, it’s the story of a boy and a girl who fall madly in love, and the two meddlesome fathers who try to keep them apart. Featuring a newly revised and updated script, The Fantasticks is a magical, wild, and witty tale about young love, wild fantasy, and growing up.
In June and July, wonder what you’d risk for love while watching Once on This Island, A Musical. With a Calypso-flavored score and breathtaking dance, this promises to be a captivating and imaginative telling of Ti Moune, a fearless peasant girl who—guided by the mighty island gods—embarks on a remarkable journey to reunite with the man who has captured her heart. Can she prove that love is more powerful than death?
It may have become routine in recent years to stay home and stream your entertainment, but just like any change of habit: getting unplugged gets easier every time you do it! With season tickets to Village Theatre, they’ve made it simple to step away from your smart device and step into these five heartwarming stories.
Live theater also makes a unique and meaningful gift for the holidays, birthdays, or any celebration in your life. It’s been shown that people prefer experiences to material gifts for several reasons: they create memorable moments, break up our routines, don’t take up space, and give us happiness that lasts longer.
For someone who has everything—or maybe even for yourself!—the gift of live theater never wears out and provides a truly unforgettable evening.
