Seattle’s Quiet Theatre troupe present Bean: The Musical Fruit
Quiet, one of Seattle’s newest independent theatre groups, has presented a wide range of original and classic plays with a twist including William Shakespear’s The Taming of the Shrew done in the style of a Mad Men episode and most recently, the original Warrior’s Heart. Now, they are poised and ready to embark on their first musical for a younger crowd.
Running from November 10th through the 19th, Bean: The Musical Fruit (pun intended), is an original family musical that explores what it means to belong, even when you are different from others around you. It takes place in the perfectly sculpted Patch. Every harvest, Mayor Tom A. Toe divides the Patch responsibilities based on two groups: fruits and vegetables. However, this year the crop has run into a snag as the newest member of the community, Bean, appears to be neither vegetable nor fruit. Facing rejection, Bean and her best friend Cel set off on a journey for answers from the reclusive and mysterious Nutty that lives in the Orchard.
Bean will be presented at 7:00 p.m. November 10-12 and 17-19 at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in West Seattle. A 2:00 p.m. matinee will also be shown on November 12 and 19. Doors open one half hour before each performance. Come early to meet Pa Tatoe, Eva Cado, Bana, Mayor Tom A. Toe, Chiogga Beet, Nutty, Berry, Wando, Bolero, Mr. Big, Bean and a basketful of other veggies. Characters will be available for pictures as well.
Youngstown Cultural Arts Center is located at 4408 Delridge Way SW in Seattle, 98106. $5 discount tickets are available for students (present ID at Will Call) and children age 12 and under. You can order tickets online at BrownPaperTickets. For more information, visit the Quiet website or call 928-853-7400.
