Shoreline Community College Musical Theater Program is proud to present The Addams Family – A New Musical Comedy playing in the main campus theater Oct. 6-8 and Oct. 13-15. Get tickets!

It’s a dismal day with the Addams family, and the abnormally ghoulish and gloomy atmosphere of the Addams’ family mansion is suddenly disrupted when outsiders come to dinner, hurling Gomez, Morticia, Wednesday, Pugsley, Uncle Fester, Grandmama, and Lurch headlong into a night that will change the family forever.

Based on Charles Addams’ beloved characters, with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa (Wild Party, Big Fish), book by Marshall Brickmann (Annie Hall, Jersey Boys) and Rick Elice (Peter and the Starcatcher, Jersey Boys), The Addams Family will supply all the ghoulish laughs and tortured entertainment you’ll need to jumpstart your Halloween season!

Shows are October 6, 7, 13, and 14 at 7:30 pm; October 8 and 15 at 3:00 pm.

Tickets available at Brown Paper Tickets and at the door.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood opens this Fri., May 13


edwin drood
Shoreline Community College presents this interactive whodunit mystery musical in Steampunk style.

The Mystery of Edwin Drood is a hilarious, interactive whodunit mystery musical that allows the audience to enter the action and become the ultimate detectives. The show is based on Charles Dickens’ unfinished novel of the same name. In small town of Chesterham, England, the young and charming Edwin Drood has been mysteriously murdered. But by whom? His leering romantic rival, John Jasper? The infamous purveyor of opium and vice, Princess Puffer? The mysterious Landless twins, newly arrived from Ceylon? Or someone else even more dastardly and villainous? Dickens passed away before he was able to reveal the culprit. Rupert Holmes’ award-winning musical solves this predicament by asking the audience to choose which character is the killer by putting it to a vote. Staged in metatheatrical manner by the Shoreline Community College Musical theater department, we have crafted a cast full of colorful characters while reflecting the modern world we live in today—Steampunk elements and gender bent roles. This charming and inventive musical is sure to intrigue and entertain any musical or mystery lover.

All actors play two parts. Each plays an actor of the Music Hall Royale and also the character he or she plays in their production of The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

Campus events for March 11-13: Live! From the Last Night of My Life, Baseball at home, and more!

These are the events happening around campus for Fri., March 11 through Sun., March 13. BREATHE before Finals week events are listed separately here

Events for Fri., March 11:

Intramural Yoga, Athletics bldg., room 3025
Fri., March 11: 11:30 a.m. – 12:20 p.m.
Take time out from your day to rejuvenate and build core strength. Free to students, faculty, and staff.

Small Ensemble Recital, Music bldg. 818
Fri., March 11: 12:30-1:30 p.m.
The Student Ensemble Recital is considered to be a talent showcase for our dedicated music students at Shoreline Community College. This is their time to shine in the spotlight and to have an opportunity to perform in front of their peers. This is an invaluable experience for our students to build confidence musically through focused preparation, and the opportunity to perform in front of an audience helps them develop their stage presence.

The performances begin at 12:30 in Room #818 in SCC Music Building 800. Everyone is welcome to attend in support of our student performers.

Job Seekers’ Roundtable, Workforce Education (Ground Fl. FOSS)
Fri., March 11: 1-2:30 p.m.
office
Join us this Fri., March 11 for a Job Seekers’ Roundtable designed to get you placed through Accountemps! We’re in the Workforce Education Office (room 5116 in the bottom floor of FOSS, 5000 bldg.) from 1-2:30 p.m.

Are you ready to get a paycheck? Is it a temporary job you have in mind – that is, just something to make do until the dream job arrives — or is it something more permanent in an office setting? Either way, if you stop by Roundtable this Friday, your chances of becoming employed very soon will increase dramatically. Below is an excerpt from a very nice card I once received from Roundtable participant, Kathy Tiedman:

“My contact with your speaker from Accountemps facilitated contact with a recruiter at Robert Half and ultimately led to my placement in a long term, temporary position.”

Kathy went on to say that the experience boosted her confidence and has added some attractive cache to her resume. And wouldn’t you know it, Elizabeth Goodnow from Accountemps/Robert Half Agency is our featured guest for this Friday! Please come by, bring your resume and business card, and arrange for a one-on-one with Elizabeth. She and the folks at Accountemps have been awesome over the past couple years and have landed many Roundtablers much needed employment.

We’ll of course have coffee and treats on hand, compliments of Central Market. Have a friend or family member looking for work? Please bring them along.

See you this Friday – and as always, Good Luck Out There!

“Live! From the Last Night of My Life,” Campus Theater
Fri., March 11: 7:30 p.m.
live last night
Shoreline Community College Theater Department is proud to present Seattle based Wayne Rawley’s “Live! From the Last Night of My Life.”

Doug Sample is a man who has decided his experiment with life has, for all intents and purposes, failed. He has achieved nothing, accomplished nothing, and has nothing except his graveyard shift at a local gas station and Mini-Mart. He has decided that the best thing for everyone would be if he shot himself in the head, and he is planning to do it right in front of the Mini-Mart’s security cameras at the end of this, his last shift. But before the night is over, Doug will be visited by his past, his present, his possible futures, and some particularly annoying customers as he struggles with some of life’s most challenging questions like “Why should I go on?”, “What does it all mean?”, and perhaps most importantly, “Did I remember to change the cherry syrup in the Slushie Machine?”

Written by Wayne Rawley and directed by Debra Pralle.
