Radium Girls | October 17, 18, 19, 24, 25 and 26, 2019
A hundred years ago, radium was a miracle cure used to fight cancer. It was quickly commercialized and used in products for consumers, including luminous watches that glowed in the dark. Radium Girls tells the story of the New Jersey factory girls who hand-painted the dials until they mysteriously became ill, started dying, and ultimately fought back.
Musical Theater production:
Xanadu | March 18, 19, 20, 26, 27 and 28, 2020
This comedy musical is based on the film which starred Olivia Newton-John. It’s 1980, and Venice Beach chalk-artist Sonny is frustrated by his mural of the Greek muses. A Greek muse named Kira dispatches to L.A., disguised as a human to encourage him in his art. Together they dream of opening a roller disco club named Xanadu. Xanadu is a love story with legwarmers and campy music.
Rumors | May 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, and 16, 2020
Set in the 1980s at a large home just north of Manhattan, the deputy mayor of New York has accidentally shot himself. As four couples gather for a 10th anniversary wedding party, the mayor’s lawyer must quickly concoct a story to avoid a scandal. Speculation quickly piles up, leading to laughable, ludicrous moments. Rumors is written by Neil Simon.

GEMS Middle School STEM program
Check out GEMS (Girls in Engineering, Math and Science), a middle school STEM program sponsored by the Seattle chapter of the Association for Women in Science (AWIS). The program is a free, volunteer-run, evening science enrichment program that explores STEM fields as diverse as forensics, oceanography, civil engineering, and neuroscience through hands-on activities with guidance from women scientists currently employed in these fields. In addition, we organize several field trips a year, such as a programming workshop at Google and a beach walk exploration of tide pools with the Seattle Aquarium. We offer one-on-one mentorship opportunities for girls to get hands-on experience in fields that interest them.
Our goal is to help middle school students who identify as girls learn about the range of opportunities that exist within science and technology, to encourage more girls to enter these fields, and allow them to build a sense of confidence that they can be successful in these fields as professional women. GEMS meetings run once a month from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm from November to May and are offered at two locations: the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in downtown Seattle and South Shore PK-8 School in South Seattle.
If you are interested or know a student who is interested for the 2019-2020 year, please fill out this form and we will contact you when our application opens in September 2019.
