Admission: $26 - $11
Moisture Festival presents our 14th year of high energy comedy/varietè shows featuring a rapid succession of acts showcasing comedy alongside awe-inspiring physical and mental dexterity, with poignant moments of strength and delicate beauty to make audiences laugh, wonder, shake their heads in disbelief and truly appreciate how live entertainment can exhilarate and bring real joy. A live show band propels each performance. Varietè has its roots in the Music Halls of 19th century England, cabaret in Europe and vaudeville in America. Because of the talented artists currently working in this genre, it is still fresh, exciting and tremendous fun for the audience.
This show will benefit Room Circus Medical Clowning, a nonprofit in Seattle dedicated to the healing nature of laughter and hope. Using a playful, interactive approach, the medical clowns from Room Circus use music, physical comedy, improvisation and circus arts to help transform the health care environment. Seattle Children's Hospital is thrilled to have invited Room Circus to be part of their esteemed organization and their goal is to expand the program within Seattle Children's Hospital and to other hospitals with pediatric services.
