MarchFourth - a benefit for Vashon Seals

Vashon Seals and Open Space for Arts & Community present:
MarchFourth: Spectacular, genre-breaking musical extravaganza plays on Vashon!

Don’t miss this “must see” musical spectacular featuring the amazing MarchFourth, hosted by Open Space for Arts & Community and Vashon Seals Swim Team. With exceptional musical quality and a visual kaleidoscope of stilt walkers, hoopers and Vaudeville-style dancers, MarchFourth whips audiences into a celebratory frenzy with an over-the-top spectacle of high-energy compositions, colorful costumes, and irresistible charisma! This is not a band that simply “puts on a show.” MarchFourth delivers a multi-faceted, indelible experience of pure joy. This special event is being held as a benefit for Vashon Seals. The Seals aim to raise money to give some much needed love and attention to Vashon’s outdoor pool prior to the May 2017 opening. Funds will help with a renovation project that will include retrofitting the existing boiler and other equipment needs.

“The pool is such a great community asset, and while the SEALS may use it in the early morning for training and water polo, we are just one user group,” commented Lisa MacLeod, SEALS coach. “The pool plays host to a variety of activities throughout the day, from lap and open swim to school activities, camps, senior exercise, and of course Red Cross swim lessons. We see keeping the pool operational as a part of our community service, making sure it is accessible to the whole Island.” “MarchFourth is an amazing band, and the show will be spectacular! This is a great opportunity for the Island to turn out to dance and tap toes and celebrate the beginning of winter break. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the pool as well as a raffle we’re putting on for a handful of big prizes,” said Karin Choo, SEALS board president. "Windermere has kindly sponsored the show, and we are also partnering with Open Space for Arts & Community and Orca Eats. It is a don’t-miss event.”

Doors will open at 5:00pm for this all ages, family-friendly event. DJ Arturo will begin spinning at 5:00, and food and raffle tickets will be available for sale. The main event starts at 6:00pm.

MarchFourth is an internationally-acclaimed, genre-breaking FORCE in the world of entertainment — a sonic explosion delivered by 20 musicians, dancers and artisans who travel the world, year-round, taking audience members of all ages, from all walks of life, on a joy-inducing, foot-stomping, booty-shaking, soul-stirring journey that defies categorization.

What more can you ask for to set the mood for the holiday season - an amazing evening while raising funds for the pool!

Tickets are $18 General Admission, $21 Day of Show. Reserved seats are $30. Tickets available at BrownPaperTickets.com and Vashon Bookshop.
