The Dacha Theatre of Seattle presents a family circus performance in a drive-in and sit-in format at the Polish Cultural Center parking lot on Capitol Hill. The show has almost no words, the performance is all physical theatre and clowning, so it’s excellent for people of all ages, and English speakers and non-speakers alike.
Dacha’s summertime spectacular, DEARS IN HEADLIGHTS, invites audiences back to the drive-in theatre for an evening of movie magic—only this time, with a troupe of live actors instead of a silver screen. Accompanied by an FM radio soundtrack, this fully devised and larger-than-life love letter to classic cinema combines pastiche, clowning, vignettes, and physical theatre to create a playful immersive experience for viewers with and without cars. Whether you’d rather scare yourself silly with a horror movie or laugh along to a rom-com, you’ll be delighted by this original new take on a beloved summer pastime.
Intended for audiences aged 10+, DEARS IN HEADLIGHTS asks you to keep your arms, legs, and laughter inside the vehicle at all times.
