THE MOISTURE FESTIVAL OF COMEDY/VARIETÈ

The Lucky 13th Annual Moisture Festival OPENS MARCH 17th!

Expect unleashed revelry, extraordinary performances, new collaborations, workshops and special events.

The Moisture Festival, running March 17 through April 13, is celebrating its Lucky 13th Year, attracting an abundance of high quality and high energy comedy/varietè acts, as well as continuing the festival's unique brand of burlesque shows. 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.

The Moisture Festival is dedicated to bringing world-class varietè entertainment to multiple Seattle neighborhoods at a reasonable ticket price. The festival originated in Fremont and that neighborhood's strong artistic pulse propels us into other creative strongholds: Capitol Hill, Lower Queen Anne, and Pioneer Square. This is our twelfth year at Hale's Palladium, and our fifth year at Broadway Performance Hall. It will be our third year in Teatro ZinZanni's spiegeltent neighboring Seattle Center and our first collaboration with Nordo's Culinarium in Pioneer Square.

Following is the complete schedule of events. For more information and tickets, visit www.moisturefestival.com or https://moisturefestival.strangertickets.com/ The Moisture Festival is proud to be a TeenTix partner.
