Greenwood and Phinney Ridge neighbors are involved in some local arts productions.
Ariella Hensen, a home-schooled fifth-grader from Greenwood, is performing the role of “Clock Child” in Pacific Northwest Ballet’s “Cinderella.” It opens tonight.
Ariella has been a student at Pacific Northwest Ballet School since she was 4 years old, and has performed in “Nutcracker” for the last four years.
Phinney Ridge resident Matt Langston is assistant stage manager of “The Drowsy Chaperone” at Seattle Musical Theatre at Magnuson Park. It opens Feb. 11.
The Drowsy Chaperone is the tale of a modern day musical theater maven, known simply as “Man in Chair.” To chase his blues away, he drops the needle on his favorite LP – the 1928 madcap musical comedy, The Drowsy Chaperone. As his hi-fi crackles, the musical magically bursts to life on-stage. We learn the tale of the pampered Broadway starlet who wants to give up showbiz to get hitched, and her producer’s attempts to sabotage her impending nuptials. Hilarious antics ensue with her chaperone, the debonair groom, the dizzy chorus girl, the Latin lover and a pair of gangsters masquerading as pastry chefs.
