Leavenworth is a wonderful place for theater and the performing arts.
Snowy Owl Theater at Icicle Creek Center for the Arts is a brand-new state-of-the-art theater. From their Facebook page: "The opening of Snowy Owl Theater at Icicle Creek Center for the Arts signifies the next stage in the evolution of Leavenworth's premier arts destination. With a capacity of 240 seats, Snowy Owl joins the Wenatchee Valley's list of fine performance venues. Theater designers have created a flexible venue suitable for performances across many genres of the performing arts: optimized for musical sound quality; a sprung floor for dance and theater; capability for film screenings; and approvals and technology in place for live screening of the Metropolitan Opera."
We had the opportunity to visit Snowy Owl Theater and we can tell you firsthand that it is an exciting and beautiful venue. We look forward to visit again and to seeing many more productions in the beautiful setting of the arts center.
In December 2013, the Leavenworth Summer Theater will stage a Christmas classic: It's a Wonderful Life at the FestHalle Theater in downtown Leavenworth. This favorite fable about a small-town everyman who learns what makes him a hero to his family and friends is a great way to celebrate your family and friends during the Christmas season.
Throughout July and August Leavenworth Summer Theater turns the Ski Hill, the Fish Hatchery and the Festhalle into centers for theater in Leavenworth. Ski hill? Fish hatchery? That's right! Every summer you can see The Sound of Music at the Ski Hill Amphitheater.
The Sound of Music than with Maria dancing through the mountain meadows, set in the mountains of Little Bavaria? Check the website for details on getting to the Amphitheater. It's no accident that we named the Summer Theater Leavenworthy after seeing The Sound of Music for ourselves. For a blog post about our visit to the 2011 production see The Hills Are Alive! Keep an eye on Accidental Bavarian for the 2014 Season announcement.Think about it... for outdoor theater what could be a more perfect place to see
Icicle Creek Theater Festival The festival offers playwrights the space, time and support they need to develop new plays, as they work alongside professional actors and seasoned directors, and present their work to live audiences. The center also offers the Young Artist Theater Camp, a weeklong workshop that gives students age 13-19 a chance to work with some of Seattle's leading dramatic actors, writers and producers. They use the opportunity to teach, guide and instruct young actors, culminating in a showcase by week's end. Check with the Icicle Creek Center for the Arts to find future festival and camp dates.
In the last full week of June each year, Upper Valley Connections presents the Icicle Creek Players, a theater camp that brings together people with and without disabilities to experience the joy of putting on a play for their community. The 2013 production is Peter Pan. Camp begins on Sunday and there will be two performances, one on Friday, the next on Saturday. See their website for camp and performance information.
