Belva's List Seattle - "There's always something to do at Belva's"

Your recreation guide to Seattle & Western Washington.


CONSTRUCTION ALERT! THIS IS A TEMPORARY PAGE
Our Live Theater list is being upgraded and integrated with our new
Live Theater catalog.


The oldest form of entertainment and education, whether acted for those gathered around the campfire, indoors or outside, in a small humble room, or on a magnificently decorated stage, live theatre has always been a part of mankind’s life. Preformed by one person or a cast of hundreds, live theatre’s purpose is the same; to educate or entertain. I believe theatre feeds the soul as well as the mind.

We in the Puget Sound area are blessed with enough live theatre performances that we could go to a different performance five times a week and never see the same one twice.

Our current list is only a small part of the live theatre productions to be seen in our area. However, we will be adding to and updating this list on a regular basis, so check back from time to time. Support your local thearte.

Greek immigrant Alexander Pantages dreamt of owning beautiful and successful vaudeville theaters across the country. But it was Kate Rockwell (“Klondike Kate”, Pantages’ mistress) who put up the money to build Tacoma’s Pantages Theatre.

Being somewhat the cad, Pantages later married another lady and never paid Kate back her money. Kate sued him but never fully recovered her financial loss. She struggled for the rest of her life to make ends meet. As the song says, “He was her man, but he done her wrong.” They say a ghost (that could be Kate, the woman scorned) haunts Tacoma’s Pantages to this day… And it’s the oldest of all Pantages Theaters still in operation, designed after an ornate theatre in the Palace of Versailles. A truly awesome venue for the arts.
