Mickey Rowe, Arts on the Waterfront
Mickey is an accomplished actor who, along with a team of University of Washington students and recent graduates, aged 20-24, created Arts on the Waterfront. Arts on the Waterfront is high quality free theater and arts in the heart of downtown Seattle. They produce free theater in a downtown park because it is where many homeless community members live. Mickey and the Arts on the Waterfront team says, “great plays and literature brought to life on stage should be available to everyone, not just those who can pay $30 for a ticket like most Seattle Theaters charge or those who can get dressed up to fit in with the audiences at these theaters. We think it is important to enrich people’s lives with these experiences.”
Pollination Project funds will be used for production costs, and the play, Waiting for Godot, will take place over three weekends in August and September. All proceeds of donations collected on site will be given to Teen Feed, a local Seattle organization that serves homeless teenagers.
