“The Drowsy Chaperone”

7:30 p.m., May 17, 18; Campus Theater

3 p.m., May 12, 19

You’re invited to witness a blast from the past at SCC’s production of “The Drowsy Chaperone.” In this Tony-winning comedy, an unnamed protagonist imagines his favorite 1920’s musical coming to life in his apartment the moment he puts the needle on the record. Soon, the characters appear in his living room — and as he indulges the audience with his own commentary and quips about the show, the result is a touching tale of nostalgia told through a lively mix of song, dance and laughs. Tickets: $12-20.

SIFF 2019 Opening Night: Film Scholarship Benefit Party

5:30-9 p.m., May 24; Campus Theater (Lobby)

The Seattle International Film Festival is back, and with it comes an an exciting pre-show party that you can partake in right here at the campus theater.

All of this will precede a screening of the Sundance award-winning film “Brittany Runs A Marathon,” with proceeds going toward the Performing Arts and Digital Filmmaking Scholarship to benefit SCC students. Tickets: $50

Help our college’s music program go out with a bang at this year-end afternoon of song.
