New Old Time Chautauqua, Summer 2013
 
Hello Friends of New Old Time Chautauqua!

2013 Western Washington Tour

(July 22 – August 11, 2013)
 
We're currently gearing up for our next adventure - the 2013 tour through Western Washington state!  We'll share our blend of education, entertainment and service with many different communities, large and small, close to where many of us call home. 

Our  50+ member multi-generational troupe of volunteers will present community events that feature parades, workshops and vaudeville circus. We also bring our lively members and shows to people in communities who cannot come to see us – typically those in hospitals, care centers, and correctional facilities.
 
See more details on our shows and tour on
our website and Facebook page!


We'll be updating our TOUR BLOG once we hit the road.

 

Our public shows:
Most of these shows are preceded by parade, free workshops, teaser shows and other events, so please check our website, Facebook page or the sponsoring organizations' site for more details!
We hope you can join us, and please spread the word to all your friends in Washington!
 
Community Service performances are a huge part of our mission, and allow us to give to each community on a different level.  On this tour, these will include:

WHAT HAVE WE BEEN UP TO??
 
This spring brought Chautauquans from near and far together to perform on Vashon Island at Open Space for Arts & Community on May 19th. We livened up their huge space with The Fighting Instruments of Karma Marching Chamber Band/Orchestra, The Flying Karamazov Brothers, Joey Pipia, Godfrey Daniels, Christian Swenson, Scuff & Boom Boom, Justin Credible, Yipee & Kiyay, and local acts Duo Finelli, David Godsey, Janet McAlpin and The Rev! Check out more photos of the event!
 
This weekend, July 20-21, those stalwart vaudeville heroes the Flying Karamazov Brothers will be trekking to Corvallis, Oregon right before the start of our tour to perform at the daVinci Days festival to support Chautauqua's work. Many thanks to their generous spirits.

SUPPORT OUR WORK
We’re still seeking donations (and counting our loose change) to make this exciting summer tour possible.  Please consider a tax-deductible donation from $5 to $5000 or more.  Donate through PayPal, and of course, checks may be sent to us at PO Box 70173, Seattle, WA  98127. More information about donations.
 
Our tours run on a shoestring - participants travel on buses, camp in tents and create group meals in our portable kitchen.  This way we can bring our particular brand of joy to remote areas free or for very low cost.  Community members join our parades, learn to juggle, make masks, sing, do acrobatics, and try many new things in our free workshops.  Our performers bring smiles to residents of nursing homes, detention centers, soup kitchens, hospitals … all free.  We deliver extraordinary bang for our bucks, but we still need some to keep things rolling.
