Our annual kick-off to the holiday season proves that “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without A Smile!” Relive the humor of Carol Burnett’s Miss Hannigan with “Little Girls,” and take a trip down “Easy Street” with Tim Curry and Bernadette Peters as Rooster and Lily St. Regis (like the hotel). Fall in love with Albert Finney as Daddy Warbucks, and leave the “Hard Knock Life” behind for a few hours of red curls and wonderful fun.

Local host Lauren O’Neill is back to warm up the audience and lead our costume contest. An affordable treat for the whole family to enjoy!

MC in the Moment-Workshop

REGISTER NOW

Hosted by Lauren O'Neill (Ms. Hattie Hotpants) this workshop offers new and intermediate public speakers a chance to refine and expand their repertoire in a fun and supportive environment. 

Anyone who has seen a bad MC can tell you how they sucked, but can you describe how a GOOD MC does it? Making that illusive magic is the goal of this workshop-how to stay with your audience while staying on task within the performance. 

  • improvisation exercises and skills to increase your ability to handle anything on stage
  • experience and observation based tools that can help you "read" an audience and tailor your approach on the spot
  • intention and motivation focusing exercises to clarify and polish what you're delivering on stage at all times
  • rehearsal techniques 
  • how to put more in and get more out

Lauren will share over 8 years of Burlesque and Variety hosting, private event as well as benefit, fundraising and event hosting experience for YWCA, SideWalk, SafePlace, The Washington Center for the Performing Arts and more.

ELVIS BIRTHDAY BASH featuring WORLD CHAMPION Elvis Impersonator Robert Washington

Featuring Ms. Hattie Hotpants, Nani Poonani, Bettie Beezelbub and Ginger Smack

The mighty Mr. Washington will be joined by the beautiful dancing girls of Olympia’s TUSH Burlesque (fully clothed and family friendly, of course) and the fantastic Kentucky Rain band. Don’t miss this incredible night of film and live music!

TICKETS: http://olympiafilmsociety.org/elvis-birthday-bash-2016/

On August 16, 1977 Elvis Presley “left the building” for good. Coincidentally on that fateful day Robert Washington celebrated his own 19th birthday. Fast forward nearly 40 years later and Robert Washington has become one of the world’s greatest Elvis impersonators. Some would say THE best. Others would vehemently disagree. Robert Washington took 2nd place three times in the annual Images of Elvis World Championships held each August in Memphis. And three times a slew of fans cried foul when he was not crowned King. But after several cracks in the glass ceiling, Robert Washington made history by becoming the first African American to be crowned World Champion Elvis Impersonator.

See his inspiring story chronicled in the film Almost Elvis, then see him LIVE IN CONCERT.
