Even underneath Seattle’s historic Pike Place Market, this carnival of merriment glitters with the cheer of yesteryear. Can Can’s cast of professional dancers and singers swing from the chandeliers, mesmerizing audiences in an unrivaled intimate theatre-turned-holiday chalet. Experience their tantalizing menu, carefully crafted with the best local and seasonal ingredients that the Market has to offer.
“With Wonderland we really give in to the season – the dancers perform to The Pete King Orchestra and local favorites Prom Queen, but also throwback showtunes that emanate togetherness and that holiday feeling that’s so special to this time of year, said Artistic Director Chris Pink. “And, we love to celebrate! New Years Eve is a blast with us, and tickets include a champagne toast.”
The Can Can Company of dancers for the evening performances of Wonderland feature co-producer and principle emcee Jonathan Betchtel (BFA Cornish College; Can Can: Romeo & Juliet, Bananas!, Femme Fatale); Shadou Mintrone (BFA UArts, Spectrum Dance Theater, 5th Avenue Theater, Can Can: Romeo & Juliet, Bananas!, Femme Fatale); Sarah Rose Davis (5th Avenue Theater, ACT, Village Theatre, Can Can: Zombie Cheerleaders From Hell!); Richard Peacock (5th Avenue Theater, ACT, Village Theatre); Madison Oliver (Spectrum Dance Theater, Can Can: Magnificent Matinee, Zombie Cheerleaders From Hell!).
