Spring Fair springs into the North Beach

Published: 04/30/19 Topics: Comments:

Spring Fair is springing into the North Beach. You'll find vendors, food truck and even chainsaw carving on the chapel campus of St. John's Chapel by the Sea.

After the Market for Mission in December another first-ever event was put on the calendar with the chapel. The December event had a focus on global mission and fair trade products. Mayan Hands and Haiti Creations of Hope were two of those included. In addition, a bake sale brought local talents to the table.

"We decided to have an event with local vendors and business owners given an opportunity to share their crafts and business lines. The focus if for those who use this as a source or maybe their main source of income," Lee Marriott, chapel member said.

Native Beach Accessories with Tony Robinson will be chainsaw carving his art in the front parking area. You'll see him as you enter the chapel campus at 4612 SR 109 at the border of Pacific Beach and Moclips.

Vendors include Touchstone Crystal Jewelry with Elaine Thompson. Other crafters and vendors will be on the campus as well. Park and it's an walk to all that's happening.

Plan a meal while you're here! Double Barrel BBQ brings the NEW Double Barrel Grub Truck to the chapel campus. Blue Boar Burgers are on the menu. (You may remember these from Aberdeen and here they are for you!)

You'll also be able to tour the chapel. Ask the Rev. Dr. Linda Flatley or a chapel member for a personal view of the sanctuary and facility.

This event benefits the Barbara Topete Memorial Benevolence Fund. All proceeds in this fund go to those in emergency need in the North Beach.

Alice in Wonderland takes to the stage

By Pamela Nygaard
Published: 04/16/19 Topics: Comments:

Stage West Community Theatre is proud to present "Alice in Wonderland." This is based on one of the more widely beloved British children’s books, "Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland" by Lewis Carroll.

Follow Alice as she has many wondrous, often bizarre adventures with thoroughly illogical and very strange creatures. She encounters the hookah-smoking Caterpillar, the Duchess (with a baby that is a pig), and the Cheshire Cat. Alice attends a strange endless tea party with the Mad Hatter and the March Hare. She plays a game of croquet with the Queen who calls for the execution of almost everyone present.

With its fantastical tales and riddles, this is a fast paced, colorful, witty, and a delightful visit in Wonderland. The script is full of humor, fun and action. The whimsy, energy and creativity of the show will take you on a journey of childhood discovery.

Stage West has been providing quality live theater to the North Beach community for over seven years and continues to be the only community organization dedicated solely to keeping local theater alive. We have volunteer opportunities for actors, musicians, directors, set creators, stage managers, web and social media promotion and performance help for all ages and experience.

Tickets are $10, $5 for students. Performances are 7 pm, Fridays and Saturdays and 2 pm, Sundays, May 3,4,5 and 10,11,12. Performances are at the Lions' Club in Ocean Shores. Purchase online: Stagewestcommunitytheatre.org.

Ocean Shores Wearable Art Show Is Looking for Artists!

By Eric Bjella
Published: 04/07/19 Topics: Events, Ocean Shores WA Comments:

The Ocean Shores Wearable Art Show is gearing up for their eighth crazy runway show! Artists are busy working on their creations and set designs are being planned. While I’m a bit biased, I think this show has become a local favorite among the many great events happening in Ocean Shores.

Show producers, Eric Bjella and Tricia Funk, have always intended that the show, once it proved its value, be used as a fundraiser to benefit a local non-profit willing to take on the production responsibilities. Stage West Community Theatre (SWCT) has been a non-profit community theatre producing plays in Ocean Shores for nearly 10 years.

The theme for the 2019 Show is: “Hidden Meaning” and artists are encouraged but not required to create pieces along this theme. Artists of all media are invited to create ensembles of functional and not so functional pieces of “clothing” and accessories to be presented in a one-of-a-kind runway fashion show held at the Ocean Shores Convention Center on June 1.

This is a runway extravaganza with something to pique your creative interests. The show is rated PG-13 and well-behaved children accompanied by an adult are welcome. There will be a no-host bar available. Doors open at 6:30pm and show starts at 7:30pm. Tickets will go on sale May 1 and will be available online at the Stage West Community Theatre website or at The Dusty Trunk store in Ocean Shores.
