Access to performances and stages can be hard to come by for those who don’t have the cash, but want to put on a show. The Seattle Theatre Group (STG) has changed the game for the summer season. STG opened Nights at the Neptune where local groups could apply for a night to perform at the Neptune Theatre. Shows picked range from a flick picked by the Seattle Latino Film Festival to plays written by homeless and at-risk youth. Today, we find out how this series came about and highlight a couple of upcoming performances.
Martin Sepulveda is the Program Manager and director of the performance/event, Ward of State.
Melik Gaines is a performer of spoken word.
Techung is a Tibetan folk and freedom singer/songwriter currently living in exile in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Tshedzom Tingkhye is a performer of song and dance with Techung and Lhasa Spirits and local youth.
