Trouble in Mind @ Burien Actors Theatre (Burien)
Mar 1 @ 8:00 pm

A talented and experienced Black actress has been cast in Chaos in Belleville, an anti-lynching play set to open on Broadway. She had paid her dues throughout the years, playing stereotypical supporting roles in second-rate shows, and is ready for her star turn. Chaos in Belleville, written by a White playwright, might not be quite as enlightened a piece as she’s been hoping for — but that doesn’t mean it won’t sell out. And selling out is the question at the heart of Alice Childress’s comedy-drama, set in 1957. A cast of multi-generational Black actors rehearse under the purview of a White director and stage manager, and as the rehearsal process unfolds, theatre conventions and racial politics collide.

Written by Alice Childress; directed by Jasmine Lomax.

Location: Kennedy Catholic High School theatre (140 S. 140th St, Burien)

Vanity Fair – UW Drama @ Jones Playhouse (Seattle – U-District)
Mar 2 @ 7:30 pm

In Vanity Fair, Becky, orphaned and disadvantaged, is cunning and ambitious, while Amelia, born into privilege, is well-intentioned but naive. As they each strive to secure love, success, and stability in the patriarchy of early 19th-century London they face many obstacles to their dreams. As their parallel stories unfold, the audience is forced to confront our own hypocrisy and the complexities of a world that often rewards those who break the rules. Through Becky and Amelia’s travails, this thrilling, highly theatrical (im)morality play explores the flexibility of our morals when faced with the harsh realities of our lives.

Stage adaptation written by Kate Hamill, based on the novel by William Makepeace Thackery. Directed by Kate Drummond.

Previews 3/2, 3/5; opens 3/7

We are here because of the many individuals that created the framework for the Seattle dance community to become what it is today. We are here because of the local communities that want and need art. We are here because of where we want creation and performance to go. This piece will serve as a reminder of how previous generations have influenced the way things are now. And in turn, how the current generation is influencing the way things will be moving forward. This piece is about community. This piece is for Seattle.

Luchadora! @ Seattle Children’s Theatre (Seattle Center) (audio described)
Mar 9 @ 1:00 pm

Transport yourself to the world of lucha libre (Mexican wrestling) with this inspired adaptation of the Chinese legend Hua Mulan. The discovery of a worn pink wrestling mask prompts Nana Lupita, a Wisconsin grandmother, to share her coming of age story growing up in 1960s Texas. As we follow Lupita’s journey, we witness her life as a daring teen tomboy bike riding with her friends, working at her father’s flower stand, and lucha libre. When a World Championship match is announced, Lupita’s excitement explodes; she anticipates seeing it until she discovers her ailing father is one of the wrestlers. With the help of a magical mask maker, Lupita secretly trains to take her father’s place. She soon finds it difficult keeping her secret from her friends and, most importantly, her father.

The Seattle Project: here because @ Velocity Dance Center (Seattle – Capitol Hill)
Mar 9 @ 7:30 pm

The Seattle Project (founded by PNB soloist Amanda Morgan) and Velocity Dance Center present here because, a multidisciplinary, full-length, performance work that will showcase a union of dancers who oftentimes aren’t able to collaborate and bring together communities who oftentimes don’t intersect. We are here because of the many individuals that created the framework for the Seattle dance community to become what it is today. We are here because of the local communities that want and need art. We are here because of where we want creation and performance to go. This piece will serve as a reminder of how previous generations have influenced the way things are now. And in turn, how the current generation is influencing the way things will be moving forward. This piece is about community. This piece is for Seattle.

Location: 12th Avenue Arts (1620 12th Ave.)

Luchadora! @ Seattle Children’s Theatre (Seattle Center)
Mar 16 @ 1:00 pm

Transport yourself to the world of lucha libre (Mexican wrestling) with this inspired adaptation of the Chinese legend Hua Mulan. The discovery of a worn pink wrestling mask prompts Nana Lupita, a Wisconsin grandmother, to share her coming of age story growing up in 1960s Texas. As we follow Lupita’s journey, we witness her life as a daring teen tomboy bike riding with her friends, working at her father’s flower stand, and lucha libre. When a World Championship match is announced, Lupita’s excitement explodes; she anticipates seeing it until she discovers her ailing father is one of the wrestlers. With the help of a magical mask maker, Lupita secretly trains to take her father’s place. She soon finds it difficult keeping her secret from her friends and, most importantly, her father.

Written by Alvaro Saar Rios. Directed by Johamy Morales.

Colder Than Here @ As If Theatre Company (Kenmore)
Mar 16 @ 7:30 pm

Myra’s typical, middle-class family is normal in its eccentricities, especially when it comes to dealing with her illness. The boiler keeps breaking, the cat’s gone missing, and the perfect funeral needs planning, but her husband would rather bury his head in a newspaper while her two daughters wrestle with their own problems. Myra might be busy researching flatpack coffins and creating a PowerPoint presentation of her dying wishes, but her last big project is to fix her family. Join As If Theatre Company for Laura Wade’s funny, moving journey through love, loss and laughter, that earned the playwright a Critics’ Circle Theatre Award and an Olivier Award nomination. Directed by Cindy Giese French.

Vanity Fair – UW Drama @ Jones Playhouse (Seattle – U-District)
Mar 16 @ 7:30 pm

In Vanity Fair, Becky, orphaned and disadvantaged, is cunning and ambitious, while Amelia, born into privilege, is well-intentioned but naive. As they each strive to secure love, success, and stability in the patriarchy of early 19th-century London they face many obstacles to their dreams. As their parallel stories unfold, the audience is forced to confront our own hypocrisy and the complexities of a world that often rewards those who break the rules. Through Becky and Amelia’s travails, this thrilling, highly theatrical (im)morality play explores the flexibility of our morals when faced with the harsh realities of our lives.

Stage adaptation written by Kate Hamill, based on the novel by William Makepeace Thackery. Directed by Kate Drummond.

Previews 3/2, 3/5; opens 3/7

Tickets $23 ($11 for previews), here.

Ada envisions a whole new world where art and information converge — a world she might not live to see. A music-laced story of love, friendship, and the edgiest dreams of the future. Jane Austen meets Steve Jobs in this poignant pre-tech romance heralding the computer age.

Written by Lauren Gunderson. Directed by Eric Bischoff.
