Spring Arts Fling

The third Spring Arts Fling offers three hours of diverse entertainment in ACT’s Bullitt Cabaret and Falls Lobby. And, crucially, you can interrupt the omnibus program and stretch your legs to get a drink at the discounted cash bar. (Joanie’s Catering will also provide complimentary hors d’oeuvres.) Members of just about every performing arts organization in town will be part of the buffet—including PNB, ACT, Intiman, Seattle Rep, Teatro ZinZanni, and Seattle Opera. It’s a casual chance to not only sample their repertory, but also meet and mingle with some of the performers. (And if you sign up for season tickets, well, a free drink and kiss on the cheek may follow.) Would it be wrong to call Spring Fling a mixer? The focus is on building an audience among millennial Gen-Y types who tend to be single. Tickets are capped at 250, so that’s a fairly exclusive dating pool. And if you meet someone you like, and he or she adores ballet, your first date can be Coppélia (opening June 3 at PNB). Even if the date is a bust, you may fall in love with Balanchine. T. BOND
