Denise Paulette, Seattle actress, is performing her one woman show, ZELDA by William Luce at Odd Duck Studio beginning Saturdays July 30 & August 6 with an extended run Thurs., Fri. & Sat. nights beginning August 11th-August 27th.

ZELDA is the compelling story of Zelda Fitzgerald.  As the wife of F. Scott, she found herself his muse for what Scott wrote about and lived: The Jazz Age.  In and out of sanitariums for 17 years, Zelda struggled not only with her mental illness but also the common human threads of unrequited love, growing old, lost dreams and ultimately her own mortality.

As a writer, painter and ballet dancer, ZELDA is her story of passion, wit, determination and living in one’s art no matter the situation.

Performances begin at 8 pm; admission is $15.00/Adults, $12.50 Students/Seniors.  Advance tickets at   For more information go to

At 10:30pm tonight is the Improv Team-Up of 2011 with Drop the Root Beer and Run presents: Carskee

The short version….Carskee is a long form two-person improv team comprised of Jennifer Cargill & Erin Plischke. Their format is heavily influenced by their many years of training in Chicago’s improv scene and their years of performing in Austin’s eclectic improv scene. Carskee takes one suggestion and creates distinct characters that explore their relationship to each other and to the suggestion. They interweave from scene to scene creating new characters, stories and an abundance of laughter.

Drop the Root Beer and Run, Seattle’s thirstiest and stickiest comedy troupe, was founded in the winter of 2011 by Generation Friends alumni Corbin Smith and Matt Hatfield in grand ol’ Olympia, Washington. Specializing mostly in long form improvisation, DTRBAR has since relocated to Seattle and expanded to doing the occasional sketch comedy.

$10. Tickets are available at 206-679-3271 and at Brown Paper Tickets
