Well This Is Another Fine Mess You've Gotten Me Into... Ron

I'm lucky because I'm one of a number of people who gets to spend lots of my free time volunteering as a producer and board member for this non profit arts organization known as The Moisture Festival. We are now entering our eight year of existence, in case you haven't noticed.

Time and fruit flies.

When it's Spring time in Seattle it's also time to laugh away the gray winter blues at the Moisture Festival. We begin again with the 2011 version March 17th. Next years festival will run through April 10th, 2011. We work diligently behind the scenes at this very second to make the magic happen again. We are hopeful the Moisture Festival in 2011 will continue to grow and prosper with our uniquely awesome, critically acclaimed genre of comedy, variete and burlesque that our fans expect with the coming of Spring in the Northwest.

The other night at our regular weekly staff meeting a couple of us lackeys thought that it was time the Moisture Festival had a blog of it's own. After some discussion of the pros and cons of having an in house blog, cue the lights and band... Ta Da!

Welcome to the Moisture Festival Blog. Now if we can get some of our very busy and somewhat technologically challenged fellow staff members to get a gmail account and just write something or post a photo once in awhile we may have something here. It's suppose to be sort of our spontaneous meanderings about what going on with the Moisture Festival.

Yes, we hope it will be a place where staff and other folks working on or associated with the festival can post some timely information about what's happening behind the scenes with the Moisture Festival. Okay, it's sort of experiment we admit. The idea I think is for us to provide to you more real time news, happenings, events, and stuff we'd like to get out there immediately to, volunteers, friends, supporters, sponsors, fans and, of course, to those of you who may have never heard of a Moisture Festival.

  1. Okay! Good plan ...

    Me? I just did a Varieté show with Moisture veterans Frank Olivier (juggler, magician & overall madman)Bronkar Lee (beatbox juggler), and also Bob Hartman a really remarkable SF Bay Area puppeteer who should be persuaded to come up to Seattle some time.

    I have a few other things on the schedule and then this winter I'll go to Muenster, Germany to perform at Hacki's new Varieté theater there. That show will include Moisture Fest vets Hacki and Moeppi, John Olufs from the Zebra Kings and Lara Paxton of Circus Contraption. It gets around but it'll be great to bring that moisture home to Seattle in the spring.

  2. I've been trying to get Bob Hartman up to perform at the Moisture Festival for the last two years . . . if anyone can help twist his arm, please do.
