HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH
JANUARY 15-27 AT THE MOORE THEATRE

Seattle Theatre Group and Balagan Theatre present Hedwig and the Angry Inch at the historic Moore Theatre (1932 2nd Ave. at Virginia St.), January 17-27, with preview performances on January 15 and 16.

Directed by Ian Bell, Hedwig and the Angry Inch is the story of an East Berlin born rock-and-roll-goddess Hedwig Schmidt, a botched sex change, stolen music and a love affair with an American GI. Rising star Jerick Hoffer (most recently seen in the role of Angel in the 5th Avenue production of RENT) portrays Hedwig as she recounts her outrageous life story as the lead singer in a sleazy lounge act, backed by her rock-and-roll band 'The Angry Inch.'

Hoffer (Hedwig) has also been seen on stage at Balagan (Spring Awakening), Book-It Repertory Theatre (Red Ranger Came Calling), and Seattle Shakespeare Company (Threepenny Opera). A recent graduate of Cornish College of the Arts, the role of Hedwig is a perfect fit for Hoffer, also known to many in Seattle as preeminent drag queen chanteuse Jinkx Monsoon, host of the popular 'An Evening at Le Faux' weekly celebrity impersonation show at Julia's on Broadway.

Tickets: $17.50-$32.50 (not including fees) at www.stgpresents.org.

PRIDE FOUNDATION & GSBA SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Since 1993, Pride Foundation, along with their partner, the GSBA Scholarship Program, have awarded over $4 million in scholarships to more than 1,400 students to support education and leadership development for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer (LGBTQ) and straight-ally students.

On their 20th anniversary of supporting education in the community, Pride Foundation encourages students of any age, sexual orientation, or gender identity/expression living or studying in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington, who are pursuing any post-secondary education (including community college, public or private colleges and universities, trade apprenticeships, or certificate programs, to apply now.

Along with their scholarship partners, the Greater Seattle Business Association (GSBA), they offer over 50 different scholarships, but have only one application to complete. A combined total of over $500,000 will be awarded during this scholarship cycle. The joint application is available at www.PrideFoundationScholarship.org. The deadline for application is Thursday, January 31, 2013, at 5 p.m. PST.

The GSBA and Pride Foundation scholarships take into account a wide variety of experiences and academic levels. All scholarships require that students be committed to LGBTQ advocacy and equal rights in their community. That can look different depending on where you are and who you are. They have straight allies who help start Gay Straight Alliances in their schools, LGBTQ students who have organized Queer youth rallies, and older members of the community returning to school after fighting inequality for all their lives. Leadership can take many different forms and Pride Foundation encourages everyone to share their vision with them and apply.
