Crown Hill Center
9250 14th Ave NW

Perhaps you noticed all the construction going on in the former covered play courts behind the Crown Hill Center? The newest center tenants completely transformed the space most recently used for storage into a palatial production facility and rehearsal space.  Now we’re all being invited to celebrate their arrival with tours of the new facility and previews of selections from their upcoming productions. For those not acquainted with the G&S Society’s productions, they are grand affairs with a cast of more than 40 performers, and tremendous musicality.

HMS Pinafore, a rollicking, sea-going comic opera, shreds class distinctions and pompous bureaucracy in the Royal Navy. The heroes are British Tars and the laughing stock is the First Lord of the Admiralty, who wants to marry the Captain’s daughter. She in turn loves a member of the crew.

Cox and Box, the 19th century version of “The Odd Couple,” features two inadvertent roommates sharing a shady landlord and a fiancee that neither cares for.

Both shows have happy endings. There is no charge for admission. Free show posters and postcards. Complementary refreshments. Show T-Shirts will be available for purchase.
