EPIC HISTORICAL ROCK PLAY THESE STREETS NEEDS YOU IN THE FINAL HOUR!
From the artists:
“We have $9k more to raise by Friday at midnight or risk not collecting on any of it. Devil- meet- details.
If you have 5 minutes and a few bucks and have ever loved hearing a woman kick out the jams, then please consider joining our rocking brigade sharing the music and stories of Seattle rockers- the ones that you didn’t see all over your television but the ones who will be all over our play.”
These Streets is an unconventional theatrical play and history project, inspired by women rock musicians in Seattle during the infamous “grunge” years. Spearheaded by rock guitarist, Gretta Harley (faculty member at Cornish College of the Arts, and guitarist who played in several bands during the era) and Sarah Rudinoff (Actress, Writer and Stranger Genius Award Winner), These Streets is inspired by over 35 interviews conducted with and about the many women rockers who were integral to the Seattle music scene but have been overshadowed by the familiar bands and retrospectives.
This original piece of theatre is not a documentary, but a gritty, funny and powerful fictional story with characters that represent an amalgam of the real women rockers upon which it is based. The show is filled with music from that era, as well as a few new original songs (by Harley and Rudinoff’s We Are Golden), all played and sung by the characters and a live band.
