This show is a benefit for Cascade Leadership Challenge, an innovative and exciting program for Seattle area teenagers. Cascade Leadership Challenge combines leadership and life skills training with real world experiences, including whitewater guiding, rock climbing, sea kayaking and mountaineering. 2015 teen expeditions will include summit attempts of Mt. Rainier and Mt. Baker, sea kayaking in the San Juan Islands, whitewater rafting in Oregon and a service expedition to Nepal, to include a climb of Nepal's 20,305 foot Imja Tse and a visit to the Tibetan Mt. Everest Advanced Base Camp. Cascade Challenge is open to youth ages 14-20 and adults who can keep up with them.
The Moisture Festival presents our 12th year of high energy comedy/varietè shows featuring a rapid succession of acts showcasing comedy alongside awe-inspiring physical and mental dexterity, with poignant moments of strength and delicate beauty to make audiences laugh, wonder, shake their heads in disbelief and truly appreciate how live entertainment can exhilarate and bring real joy. A live show band propels each performance. Varietè has its roots in the Music Halls of 19th century England, cabaret in Europe and vaudeville in America. Because of the talented artists currently working in this genre, it is still fresh, exciting and tremendous fun for the audience.
