Romance! Action! Suspense! Come along for the ride from now through Sunday, November 11, as ACT Theatre brings one of South and South East Asia’s greatest and most beloved epics to life. Ramayana tells the engrossing story of Rama, a young hero on a quest to rescue his beautiful wife from an evil king. Like all great stories, it delivers riveting entertainment while posing essential questions about the human condition. Perfect for the whole family, sumptuously staged with vivid costumes, fantastical sets, and re-imagined environments, Ramayana is an eye-popping roller coaster of a show of mythical proportions – and unlike anything you’ve ever seen in Seattle!
Explore the South and South East Asian cultures associated with the Ramayana by attending during one of the Eye On weeks. Each week features vendors, performers, and artists from local Seattle communities sharing their art and traditions with audiences. Arrive early (the marketplace opens one hour prior to show time) to catch additional performances in the lobby, purchase a regional delicacy, view the art displayed throughout the theatre, and browse the beautiful handmade items on sale in the Asian Marketplace.
