This week on our Public Affairs Program, Sunday at 5a:
This week we hear from the Bellevue Youth Theatre, a program of the city of Bellevue’s Parks and Community Services. James McClain is the Administrator and tells us of not only their productions, support foundation, volunteers and participants; but of the overall vision of the program. Bellevue Youth Theatre provides opportunities in the performing arts for all young people, regardless of income or ability, and allows them to perform before a live audience. Whether a child has a disability, doesn’t feel they fit in anywhere else, has trouble with English or for any other reason, no one is turned away. The next production, A Christmas Carol, will play December 9, 10, 11, 16, 17, & 18. Learn more online or call for ticket information: www.bellevuewa.gov www.bytfoundation.org 425-452-7155.
In our second half its Sunday Morning Magazine with Kate Daniels; A great way to celebrate the holidays! It’s the Issaquah Reindeer Festival where everyone gets to walk past the reindeer yard on their way to visit with Santa! Cari McKinstry who does Promotions for Cougar Mountain Zoo, and has a connection with Elves! gives some of the highlights of this annual festival (now in year 28). It’s truly magical. Families who came as kids, bring their children. It’s a great gift of experience–of sharing time with family and friends and learning about the environment, all in a very festive atmosphere. The festival runs December 1 thru 23, during daylight hours.
