Save the Date: Theatre Matinee at Shoreline Community College: Sense & Sensibility

Sunday, December 8, 3 pm
Shoreline Community College

The drama department at Shoreline Community College present Sense & Sensibility by Kate Hamill based on the novel by Jane Austen. Jane Austen’s 1811 novel spins a tale of the Dashwood family, whose comfortable life changes dramatically when their father abruptly dies. Kate Hamill’s 2016 play takes its audience on a whirlwind theatrical ride through the novel’s central story — how Elinor and Marianne Dashwood explore matters of the heart in distinctly different ways. Miss Austen, were she alive, would giggle in delight at Ms. Hamill’s adaptation, and its playful perspective on the social rules of Georgian England. Join us for a spending night of fortunes (and misfortunes)!

Village volunteer, Ronni Wolfe, organizes this event.  By notifying her directly that you wish to attend, there is no ticket charge. Please contact her directly at [email protected] or 206-226-8396.

Taproot Theater Play – Steel Magnolias

Tuesday, January 28, 2 pm matinee
Taproot Theater, 204 N 85th S

Join other Village members and volunteers at the Taproot Theater performance of Steel Magnolias on January 28! Tickets will be at the reduced rate of around $15 per person.  If you’d like to attend, we need to know by NOVEMBER 12 so that we can reserve your ticket.  Contact us at [email protected] or 206-789-1217.

PNA Village News

The Village office and the Greenwood Senior Center will be closed on Thursday and Friday November 28 and 29.  Happy Thanksgiving!

Are you interested in purchasing a holiday wreath? The Phinney Neighborhood Preschool Co-op (PNPC) is all volunteer run and raises operating funds by selling beautiful holiday wreaths for $25 each.  We’ve heard that many of you purchase these same wreaths at the PNA Winter Festival, but they often sell out.  This is your chance to make sure you get one AND to have it delivered!  Riana and her sweet baby Jackson are part of the PNPC and they’d be happy to take your order.  Please contact the Village office by November 15 if you’d like to place an order at [email protected] or 206-789-1217.  You can then send or drop off cash or check to the Village office. The wreaths are locally and responsibly grown, made from a beautiful Pacific Northwest blend of noble fir, blue-berried juniper, cedar and natural pinecones. They are about two feet across, accented with a festive red velvet bow and smell fresh and amazing.  Riana (and maybe baby Jackson) will deliver the wreath to your door shortly after December 6.
