SEATTLE – SHINE, in concert June 20 at Fred Wildlife Refuge, as part of the Seattle Erotic Arts Festival, is a script reading with balls.
SHINE has been refined and revised since its successful 2010 run at Theatre Off Jackson and its appearance at the New York Fringe. The reading is the culmination of two years of revisions and a Seattle workshop with award-winning, NYC-based, Director/Producer/Actor Walter Winston ONeil (BROADWAY: WICKED, TALE OF TWO CITIES).
Reviving their roles, Co-writer Cass King(music and libretto) stars as Shine Mionne and John Woods (music and libretto) stars as the Janitor. King and Woods have enjoyed international success as cabaret duo The Wet Spots.
Joining his creative team, award-winning scriptwriter and actor, Sam Dulmage (Libretto), starts as Richard Suit.
Also reviving her role, Actress/singer Adraboo Green plays Lulu Von Doozy, the star burlesque dancer of the fictional Aristocrat Theatre. Adraboo makes music with Sugar Water Purple and Luxury A.K. and brings a variety of theatre experience to the role.
SHINE is racy, intelligent entertainment for adults that will appeal to the same adventurous audiences drawn to productions such as Rocky Horror and Avenue Q.
Performance is on June 20th at Fred Wildlife Refuge. Tickets are by donation at the door.
The Wet Spots (Cass King and John Woods) have enjoyed international success with their elegant, comedic songs about sex and have played sold out shows at the Sydney Opera House, Massey Hall (Toronto), The London Hippodrome and The Public Theatre (NYC). “The aim of our show is to entertain people with the notion that sexual expression is healthy and beautiful … and funny.” - Cass King
Fred Wildlife Refuge challenges creatives to break away from their normal routine and venture into unlikely collaborations with artists of disciplines other than their own with the intent of adding new repertoire to Seattle's already vibrant art scene.
The Seattle Erotic Art Festival supports a vibrant creative community, promotes freedom of expression, and fosters sex-positive culture through public celebration of the arts.
