Many people associate Washington State with outdoor activities like hiking and skiing, but there is also a strong commitment in many communities to the arts, as well as local entertainment programs.
The city of Auburn is no exception and boasts a variety of cultural arts venues, as well as special events and festivals. As you get to know your apartment home at Auburn Glen, here are some activities you may want to consider that have been created by the city’s Parks, Arts, & Recreation Department.
See a Performance at the Auburn Ave Theater
Located at 10 Auburn Avenue, the city’s premier theater offers a steady stream of visiting performers and musical performances, and you can even rent out the space for your own group. In the spring, you can attend performances by singer Michael Tomlinson, musical performances of “Broadway’s Next Hit Musical,” and a comedy event featuring headliner Drake Witham.
Catch a Show at the Auburn Performing Arts Center
Located at 702 4th Street NE, the Auburn Performing Arts Center hosts a steady stream of visitors from the Glenn Miller Orchestra on the 2nd of April to the Stunt Dog Experience on April 9th. Tickets for most of the events are quite affordable, ranging from about $15 to $25 per person. Check out the city’s “things to do” page for a continuously updated list of performances.
Take an Art Class or Visit a Gallery
Each year, Auburn hosts art classes and workshops for new art students, such as “Beginning Drawing Techniques” that’s geared toward 10 to 16-year-olds at Veterans Memorial Park. The classes last from March through April for students interested in a “survey of the fundamentals of drawing.” It’s easy to register with the City of Auburn’s official recreation page.
Auburn is also home to art galleries you may visit if you’re not otherwise inclined to take an art class and would like to enjoy the artistic creations of others in the region. You might consider visiting the Auburn City Hall Gallery, which is located in the lobby on the main floor of Auburn’s City Hall at 25 West Main St.
Artists who will see their work featured by the gallery include Vikram Madan, Harry Longstreet, Don DeLeva, and Dennis Smith, among many others throughout the year. Also, the Cheryl Sallee Gallery, which is located inside the lobby of the Senior Activity Center at 808 Ninth Street SE, will host the works of a variety of artists including Elizabeth Bustamante, Pattie Baker, and Marie Lyndemere.
Arts & Entertainment for Kids
If you want to introduce your child to the arts and entertainment scene in Washington, you’ll want to check out the schedule for performances at the Auburn Performing Arts Center. In addition to the previously mentioned Stunt Dog Experience, kids may also enjoy seeing the Disney Peter Pan, Jr. performance in April or Sleeping Beauty in May. Both performances are scheduled to appear at the Auburn Avenue Theater on 10 Auburn Avenue.
