April is Earth Month, and we're excited about all the upcoming events and activities. There are plenty of ways to get involved – how will you take part this year? Perhaps you'll learn why and how our lives need to be less plastic. Maybe you'll join with other Skagit residents asking city councils across Skagit to consider single-use bag ban ordinances.
National Theatre Live
National Theatre Live launched in June 2009 with a broadcast of the National Theatre production of Phèdre with Helen Mirren and the Lincoln Theatre has been there from the start. They've since broadcast more than twenty other productions live from the National Theatre, and on occasion other theatres in the UK and we've screened them all.
Past broadcasts include Danny Boyle's Frankenstein with Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller, One Man, Two Guvnors with James Corden and The Last of the Haussmans with Julie Walters. Now NT Live has just announced their new season that we are excited to present: The Threepenny Opera, No Man's Land, Amadeus, Saint Joan, and Hedda Gabler.
With The NT announcement of their 2017 season, a number of new events have been earmarked for future NT Live productions including Twelfth Night, Angels in America - Parts I & II and Salomé.More...

In the Art Bar: Jo Jones
After repeated visits to Skagit Valley, Jo Jones felt drawn to the region and decided to locate there to pursue nature, wildlife and landscape photography full time. Skagit Valley felt like coming home. Living in the Skagit Valley, she was a short drive away from the mountains, forests, and coast. The abundance of wildlife is everywhere. She was thrilled the first time she saw deer eating her Azaleas! She sent a picture of the tulip fields to everyone in California with a caption, “Look where I live!” She has a deep love for the Skagit Valley and feels blessed to be living here.
Meet Jo at an Artist Reception in our Art Bar on Saturday, April 7th from 2-5pm.More...
