Meet-A-Truck @ Lottie St
May 23 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

Have you ever wondered what some of the big Public Works trucks you see around town do? Come find out! On Thursday, May 23 from 1-3pm, the City of Bellingham Public Works Department and the Bellingham Public Library invite you to come view some of the equipment used to keep our City running. This event takes place during Public Works Week, a time to celebrate and appreciate the work it takes to maintain the infrastructure and services the Public Works Department provides for our community. From keeping our streets safe for travel to treating our drinking water, Public Works is behind services enjoyed by the public every day. The trucks and other vehicles will be on display to the public on Lottie Street in front of City Hall (210 Lottie St.). This is a great event for people interested in learning more about Public Works or kids who love trucks and other equipment. There will be demonstrations, activities, crafts, and a storytime. Everyone is welcome, no RSVP necessary. Hope to see you there!

ALL IN THE TIMING: Benefit for Youth Acting Program @ Sylvia Center for the Arts
May 24 @ 7:30 pm
ALL IN THE TIMING: Benefit for Youth Acting Program @ Sylvia Center for the Arts

iDiOM Theater proudly presents ALL IN THE TIMING by David Ives.

Two nights only: Fri May 24 & Sat May 25 at 7:30pm.

Tickets are $25, available at https://sylviacenterforthearts.org/events, benefiting Sylvia Center’s Summer 2019 Youth Acting Program.

David Ives’ collection of short comedies, described by The New York Times as “surprisingly substantial in its silliness,” first premiered in 1993, and quickly became the most-produced non-Shakespeare play in the nation.

Its status as one of the most popular plays of the last 30 years helped usher in a new era of one-act theater which was highly influential on iDiOM Theater and its founders.

“Witty, irreverent, absurd, and inventive—these plays are exactly the type of work iDiOM was built on,” says Artistic Director Glenn Hergenhahn-Zhao.

The ensemble cast will be joined by student actors, and proceeds from the show will support Sylvia Center’s Youth Acting Program, which gives students age 13–17 the opportunity to take acting classes and perform in theater productions.

The Summer 2019 Youth Acting Program begins this June and offers student scholarships and sliding scale tuition in order to make the program as accessible as possible to any students/families who wish to participate.

This year’s summer youth program will be taught by theater educator (and iDiOM ensemble member) Michael Morgen along with the creative staff of iDiOM Theater, at Sylvia Center for the Arts, and will culminate in a free outdoor production of Aristophanes’ THE BIRDS in Maritime Heritage Park in July.

ALL IN THE TIMING includes the much-loved short plays Sure Thing; Variations on the Death of Leon Trotsky, Unamunda, the Universal Language; and Words Words Words.

iDiOM Theater, “the hardest-working theater in the known world,” has been one of the most prolific producers of new work in the nation since 2002, and is the in-house production company at Sylvia Center for the Arts since 2016.

NUNSENSE
By Dan Goggin
Directed by Michelle Kriz
June 14-30, 2019

Nunsense begins when the Little Sisters of Hoboken discover that their cook, Sister Julia, Child of God, has accidentally poisoned 52 of the sisters, and they are in dire need of funds for the burials. The sisters decide that the best way to raise the money is to put on a variety show, so they take over the school auditorium, which is currently set up for the eighth grade production of “Grease.”
