Here are a few things happening in the neighborhood this weekend. Check our Events calendar any time for more.
The audience will get to experience the behind-the-scenes insanity first-hand as The FELT-A-THON cast and crew shoot a video inspired by Amanda Rae’s “Project Pillow Palace” set, part of Design Month at The Pocket Theater. Attendees will be invited to become part of the action as extras, actors, or even puppeteers, but also have the option to just relax as a member of the studio audience.
The FELT-A-THON is a 24 hour puppet marathon charity event broadcast online via live stream. Seattle-based puppeteers Rachel Jackson and Chad Allers, along with other local artists, will attempt to make 12 short puppet videos in only 24 hours. Part of the 2015 World Day of Puppetry, proceeds collected during the 2015 FELT-A-THON will go to Habitat for Humanity – Seattle King County.
