You thought that all the New Year celebrations were long gone now that it’s already May? Well, we may be almost halfway done with 2012 (I have no idea how that happened), but a whole new season is about to kick off courtesy of the Seattle Theater Group. This weekend- Friday, May 4 through Sunday, May 6- you can get a FREE preview of all the goodness they’ve got in store for you, including free access to the gorgeous Paramount Theatre, FREE music, historical tours, FREE food, cheap drinks and oh, how about some FREE food truck nosh for early arrivers?
Seattle Theater Group is so excited about the upcoming 2012-2013 season (find out what great acts are playing here) that they’ve planned out 3 fabulous days of free stuff just for you. There’s so much good stuff that I’m just going to go straight from their press release:
MILLION DOLLAR FRIDAY
Friday, May 4th, 5:30 – 8PM, PARAMOUNT THEATRE
Walk your line to have happy hour at the Paramount Theatre with special guest Vince Mira. He’s been called the reincarnation of Johnny Cash, appeared on national television and he’s coming back to the Paramount Theatre to entertain us during this special Happy Hour with his own dynamic style of country and rock ‘n roll, reminiscent of the music featured in the hit musical Million Dollar Quartet (running at The Paramount May 15-20). Enjoy Vince, happy hour drink specials, retro games, giveaways and tons of Friday fun.
FREE TOUR SATURDAY
Saturday, May 5, 10 AM, PARAMOUNT THEATRE
Take 90 minutes to delve into the history of Seattle’s iconic Paramount Theatre. Tours led by guides who unlock little known facts about the history of this grand theatre. Be sure to ask about the zodiac chandelier.
TASTE THE SEASON SUNDAY
Sunday, May 6, 2012, noon – 4 PM, PARAMOUNT THEATRE & 9th Ave

Free international foods, demonstrations and performances, spotlight on some of our local partners and community resources, music, dance, games, giveaways, and surprises!
