Arts and Entertainment

A night of 250 performers

The music and dancing talents of seven performance groups will be spotlighted during “That’s Entertainment,” a concert presented Nov. 23 by the Federal Way Coalition of the Performing Arts.

Starting at 2 p.m., Aria Dance Company, Federal Way Chorale, a Federal Way Symphony quartet or trio, Harmony Kings Chorus, Jet Cities Chorus, Puget Sound Musical Theatre and Showstoppers Dance Group will each perform for about 15 minutes at Saghalie Middle School.

Combined, approximately 250 musicians and dancers will be featured. The symphony members are paid professionals. The rest are amateurs, ranging in age from teenagers to octogenarians.

Tickets are $10 for general admission, and $8 for seniors and groups of 10 or more. Children under 12 will be admitted free. Additional information is available at and 839-4389 or 838-9877.

Proceeds will benefit the coalition’s effort to build a performance hall in Federal Way. Tentative plans call for a venue with seating for at least 1,000 people.

The non-profit coalition formed in 1989 as an umbrella organization for eight peformance groups –– the seven that will perform in “That’s Entertainment,” plus Centerstage Theatre, which will be busy that night with its presentation of “The Fantasticks.” Each group has two members on the coalition’s board.
