For people living in and around Olympia, Washington, there are always exciting things to do and see. This March through May is no different, with a variety of events.
The Language Archive
Running through May 5 is “The Language Archive”. Held at Harlequin Productions, the main character George studies dead languages but also records conversations of two speakers, converting them into one language on the brink of extinction. While highly knowledgeable about languages, George fails miserably when it comes to the language of love. In this modern comedy, George does not realize that he has a strong love interest in Emma, his assistant.
A Tribute to the Beatles
Virtually everyone loves the Beatles and now through April 16, people in Olympia can personally pay homage to the famous 1960s band. Hosted by Western Washington Calligraphers, this exhibit honors the Beatles’ music and song lyrics. The event takes place at Buck’s from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Through March 31, you can gather at Ben Moore’s in downtown Olympia on Thursday night for genuine Blues dancing. This particular venue has been in operation for the past five years. From 8:45 to 9:30 p.m. are dance classes, followed by open dance until 11:30 p.m. For a minimal fee of $5 to $15, you have the chance to go back in time, dancing up a storm but also enjoying delicious food and drink.
Post Secret: The Show
At the Washington Center for the Performing Arts from 7:30 to 10:30 p.m. is this incredible journey that taps into visual, emotional, and auditory senses. With the help of projected video and images, the entire audience is guided by three actors through narrated stories that touch on deep fears and ambitions. “Post Secret: The Show” uses stories from anonymous people who mailed postcards to Frank Warren, an artist and curator, containing more than one million secrets.
