Cherry blossoms
UW campus  April 2011
Saturday May 21, 2011 at 7:00 pm
at ACT's Falls Theatre

700 Union Street Seattle, WA, 98101
All proceeds will go to the Japanese Red Cross Society.

For one night, Seattle musicians come together for an evening of music to benefit the Japanese Red Cross Society and its ongoing relief efforts in areas hardest hit by the Great East Japan Earthquake. The concert is made possible in part by the generosity of ACT (A Contemporary Theatre) who has donated the use of the Falls Theatre for the event.

The lineup of artists includes Sarah Rudinoff, Miss Mamie Lavona the Exotic Mullatta and Her White Boy Band, The Live Girls! Ladies Choir, Jacqueline Tabor, Total Experience Gospel Choir, as well as three taiko drumming groups – One World Taiko, Kaze Daiko, and Seattle Kokon Taiko. Local favorite actress and performer Kate Jaeger (Teatro Zinzanni’s Zirkus Fantasmo) will serve as Mistress of Ceremonies. The evening’s proceeds will go to Japanese Red Cross Society.

In addition to the performers who are donating their time, several theatre companies in Seattle are joining the effort by providing services, taking up collections or donating a portion of their box office from one evening’s performance of their current show with the help of TPS (Theatre Puget Sound).  Participating theatres are: Wing-It Productions, Pork Filled Players, SIS Productions, Youth Theatre Northwest, and Live Girls! Theater Company.

Tickets: All tickets for The Sun Always Rises are $25. To purchase tickets, contact ACT box office at (206) 292-7676 or go to
