I have an embarrassing confession. I have never been to a show at Seattle Public Theater. It is walking distance from my house. I know, I know. I can use my excuse of having two little kiddos, but honestly there really is no excuse. I am fixing that in a few weeks by going to see The Thanksgiving Play. But that is not the only show that I may check out this season. Here’s the full rundown of the shows playing now through the holidays at Green Lake’s own SPT Theater.

The Thanksgiving Play is running now until November 16.
The synopsis of the Thanksgiving Play from SPT: “Ah, Thanksgiving, that most American of holidays: when families gather to celebrate the warmth of home, the bounty of the harvest — and a legacy of genocide and violent colonial expansion. Good intentions collide with absurd assumptions in Larissa FastHorse’s wickedly funny satire, as a troupe of terminally “woke” teaching artists scrambles to create a pageant that somehow manages to celebrate both Turkey Day and Native American Heritage Month.”

Christmas Town: A Noir runs November 29th – December 24th, 2019
The synopsis: “We’ll be bringing back the holiday favorite and now Seattle Tradition of Christmastown. In this film noir-inspired holiday thriller, hard-boiled detective Nick Holiday investigates some un-holiday-like shenanigans taking place in Christmastown that sends him on a search for the truth about Big Red. Add a glamorous elf, a used-Christmas-tree salesman, a muckraking reporter, and a quick-thinking cab driver, and you have what the Seattle Times calls the ‘best new holiday romp of the year!'”

A Very Die Hard Christmas runs November 27 – December 28, 2019
The synopsis: “The comedy team that’s been keeping Green Lake in stitches for years has a new holiday adaption that’s about to blow the roof off Seattle Public Theater! Coming this December, The Habit presents A Very Die Hard Christmas, a new musical that parodies the film and asks: How on earth did this over-the-top action movie become a holiday tradition? Penned by Jeff Schell and The Habit, and directed by Mark Siano (Seattle Vice, Bohemia, Twister Beach), A Very Die Hard Christmas is a quick and dirty Christmas crowdpleaser with original music, a live band, and lots of laughs.”
