Trapped in modern America

WWW.THEEASTSIDESCENE.COM

‘String’ premieres in Issaquah March 15 by Nicole Jennings

What if the characters from the classic literature we all read about in school suddenly found themselves in the modern world and had to make their way among cars, technology and corporate America? And it gets even more complicated if those characters are not humans, but goddesses. Such is the premise of “String,” Village Theatre’s all-new musical making its world premiere on Thursday, March 15. With a script by Sarah Hammond and music and lyrics by Adam Gwon, the musical combines Greek mythology with contemporary romance. The three fates, Clotho (Sara Porkalob), Lachesis (Lauren Du Pree) and Atropos (Jessica Skerritt), are responsible for, respectively, spinning, measuring and cutting the thread of life. But when the trio of sisters angers Zeus, they are sent to the modern world as punishment. In a cubicled office of an Empire State Buildingesque skyscraper in a city very much resembling New York, they carry out their work in determining the birth, length and end date of every human life. But when Atropos begins to fall in love with a human working in the same building, she must reconcile her feelings with the truth that, one day, she will have to cut the string of his life. Hammond, who is based in Brooklyn, discovered a passion for ancient Greek literature early in life, reading “D’Aulaire’s Book of

Greek Mythology” as a child. Though enchanted by all of the deities, it was not the more well-known figures, such as Zeus, Hera, Aphrodite or Athena, who spoke to her the most. “The fates got stuck in my brain,” she said. When a New York City director asked her to write a play based on Greek myths, Hammond immediately turned to the three goddesses who did not receive their own specific story in Greek mythology. She explored the idea of

creating, managing and ending the string of life as a day job in the corporate environment of a modern city. Then Hammond put the play away as she focused on other productions. It wasn’t until Hammond and Gwon met one another in a playwriting workshop and the two became friends that they pursued the idea of setting Hammond’s play to music. STRING CONTINUED ON PG 4

Sounds of Spring The countdown to spring is on for the Pacific Northwest. And, as spring comes in with a roar, arts enthusiasts can also expect new sounds. That’s why The Eastside Scene presents the first “Sounds of Spring” roundup of the Spring Arts guide. Bellevue World Taiko Festival 2-4 p.m., March 3-4 Kicking off the month of March is the fourth annual Bellevue World Taiko Festival featuring group Miyake Geinou Doushikai. Presented by the Japan Creative Arts and The School of Taiko, the performing arts group will stir the senses with colorful garb, traditional Japanese masks and energetic drumming. It will be Miyake Geinou Doushikai’s first performance in the Seattle area. The group is known for instructing their “Miyake” to the KODO, an internationally famous Taiko group. According to the event’s website, the Miyake is recognized as “KODO’s popular repertoire by its sounds, movements and Samurai spirits.” “This unique style of drumming is simple, yet powerful enough to move audiences,” the festival STRING CONTINUED FROM PG 2

“Sarah had a career as a playwright, then she met me and I lured her over to the dark side of musical theater,” Gwon laughed. Gwon said that the two “took a shine to each other’s work” due to their skilled character-building abilities. “Sarah creates imaginative characters — real humans, it feels like they live in this world,” he said. Yet, the characters are also “slightly magical.” “They’re funny, eccentric, they felt so real — I instantly saw the possibility to make those characters sing,” he said. “I got very excited imagining the world Sarah created on stage.” Hammond, too, said that she was “really engaged by the characters that Adam created.” In other shows, she said, you forget songs soon after, but the meaningful songs Gwon’s characters perform are “something fictional that’s gonna have a lasting impact.” The two said that their different styles compliment one another very well in an oppositesattract sense. While Hammond likes to write in fantastical, other-worldly settings, Gwon’s work tends to have its roots in very real locations.

website states. “With a sophisticated stage performance, Miyake Taiko is a must-see. The intense beats, breathtaking body movements, and their spirits will certainly capture your heart.” For more information, visit www.worldtaikofestival.org. Seattle Rock Orchestra: Led Zeppelin I & II 8 p.m., March 31 Kirkland Performance Center While, yes, the Seattle Rock Orchestra is an orchestra, the group can definitely rock. Their rendition of Led Zeppelin I & II is sure to take Baby Boomers back to the good ol’ days when a Friday night consisted of listening to songs like “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You,” “Dazed and Confused,” “Bring It On Home,” “Whole Lotta Love” and “Ramble On,” on repeat so they could write down the lyrics. Except instead of a loud, sweaty concert, the refined generation can enjoy the sounds of their youth in Kirkland Performance Center’s clean concert hall. According to their biography, the Seattle Rock Orchestra utilizes strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion and

guest vocalists to get the party started. For ticket prices and more information, visit www.kpcenter.org. 7th Annual North Bend Jazz Walk 6 p.m.- midnight, April 21 Various venues around North Bend Now in its seventh year, the annual North Bend Jazz Walk is a highly-anticipated music festival nestled at the foot of majestic Mount Si, featuring some of the finest jazz talent in the Pacific Northwest. Scheduled for multiple venues in historic Downtown North Bend, the event is a delightful evening celebrating jazz. Among renowned jazz artists, such as Bernie Jacobs Quartet, Janette West Quartet with Murl Allen Sanders and Kelly Eisenhour + Melanie Shore Trio, the Mount Si High School Jazz Ensemble will also perform. Proceeds of the North Bend Jazz Walk will benefit JazzClubsNW, a membersupported, nonprofit dedicated to supporting life music and education. For a list of venues and ticket information, visit JazzClubsNW.org.

“We’ve got a perfect child … in terms of the two aesthetics we’re bringing to the table,” Gwon said. The show was part of the 2014 National Association of Musical Theatre Showcase in New York City, where it was discovered by Village and invited as part of the Festival of New Musicals and Beta Series. “The show is this passion project that we’ve continued to work on in between other shows … It’s so satisfying — this is the one that’s been the spotlight,” Gwon said. The central themes of the show are sentiments that everyone — mortal and deity alike — can relate to. Atropos is committed to her career duties, but when she has a chance meeting with a security guard in an elevator, everything is thrown upside down. “They have an awkward conversation … that for these two lonely and awkward souls, they just can’t ignore,” Hammond said. Hammond named responsibility, the nature of being a woman in power and the force of being in love as just a few of the show’s central themes. “Ultimately we’re trying to get at something real that could happen in people’s hearts — all the feelings you have when you meet The One,”

Hammond said. “The fears, doubts, worries, excitement.” The musical numbers match these sentiments. Gwon said that the show includes a variety of songs, from sweeping, grand pieces to contemporary pieces tailored to invididual characters. “The stories demanded music on an epic scope … but also personal moments,” Gwon explained. “The interplay between the two is really fun.” Each of the sisters has music befitting her personality. Youngest sister Clotho (in charge of beginning life) has sweet, bouncy songs, while middle sister Lachesis (in charge of measuring life) has the rebellious, edgy, rock-type music of a teenager. Meanwhile, eldest sister Atropos (in charge of ending life) has the most complex and emotional pieces, reflecting her inner turmoil as she falls in love with a human. And a detailed memory of those Greek and Roman myths that you read in high school and college is not necessary — though Hammond noted slyly that “people who know Greek mythology will pick up on Easter eggs” hidden throughout the play. “String” plays Wednesdays through Sundays and select Tuesdays from March 15 through April 22.

Redmond’s SecondStory Repertory takes flight with ‘Bye Bye Birdie’ Redmond will get a taste of Sweet Apple, Ohio, in March when SecondStory Repertory will present the Tony-Award-winning “Bye Bye Birdie.” In the classic tale set in 1957, superstar Conrad Birdie (Michael Renney) arrives in town to give a lucky girl “one last kiss” before his induction into the Army. The nostalgic trip will feature soda fountains, screaming fans, Ed Sullivan, comedy, romance, and songs like “Put on a Happy Face,” “A Lot of Livin’ To Do” and “The Telephone Hour.” “Bye Bye Birdie” was originally performed on Broadway in 1960–1961. It also took flight on London stages and didn’t stop there. The play continued its success by launching a sequel, a 1963 film and a 1995 television production. It is based on the Michael Stewart book

and features music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Lee Adams. The local production will run March 2-25 under the guidance of director Isaiah Crowson, musical director John Allman and choreography team of Matthew Lawrence and Rena Bailey-Barrett. A pay-what-you-can preview/final dress will take place at 8 p.m. March 1. Opening night is 8 p.m. March 2 with subsequent 8 p.m. shows on March 3, 8-10, 15-17 and 2224; a 2 p.m. matinee is slated for March 25. • In the rep’s Theater for Young Audiences Series, “Junie B. Jones” the musical will run through March 18. First-grader Junie B. (Lizzie Rose Sande) deals with losing her best friend but meets the new kid in school on the bus. She has trouble reading the blackboard and her teacher, Mr.

Scary, thinks she may need glasses. The show also features a friendly cafeteria lady, a kickball tournament and a “Top-Secret Personal Beeswax Journal.” Upcoming showings will be 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Feb. 24-25, March 3-4, March 10-11 and March 17-18. The production is adapted from the “Junie B. Jones Series” of books by Barbara Park, with theatrical adaptation by Marcy Heisler (book and lyrics) and Zina Goldrich (music).

Northwest Wine: Wahluke Slope plays key role for Washington wineries BY ANDY PERDUE AND ERIC DEGERMAN/ GREAT NORTHWEST WINE

The Wahluke Slope is in a remote and arid section of Washington wine country, an 80,000-acre region that was federally designated as an American Viticultural Area in 2006. It’s essentially a 13-mile wide gravel bar formed 15,000 years ago at the end of the last ice age when a series of outburst floods swept across what is now the Columbia Valley and reshaped what is now Washington wine country. The Wahluke is Washington wine’s unsung hero. Nearly 10,000 acres of wine grapes are planted on along the slope, a region that rarely has an issue getting ripe. It rivals Red Mountain as the warmest region within the Columbia Valley. It also is quite dry. Last year, the Wahluke Slope received a mere 4.6 inches of rain. This means grape growers on the slope can all but guarantee perfectly ripened red grapes each fall, a fact appreciated by winemakers across the state. Here are eight wines using Wahluke Slope fruit. Ask for them at your favorite wine merchant or contact the wineries directly. Desert Wind Winery 2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Wahluke

Slope, $18: Cabernet Sauvignon thrives in the heat of Washington’s Columbia Valley, and the Fries family of Duck Pond Cellars in Oregon continues to prove that its maturing 480-acre Desert Wind Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope can yield stellar Cab and offer it at a remarkable price. Classic notes of plum, red currant, cherry pipe tobacco, cinnamon and toffee are joined by a well-balanced structure of tannin and acidity. Siren Song Vineyard Estate and Winery 2014 Jolie Red Wine, Wahluke Slope, $36: This is owners’ Holly and Kevin Brown’s tribute to Paris, one of their favorite cities. Using grapes Weinbau Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope, this Cab Franc-leading blend unveils aromas of cocoa powder, blueberry, a hint of light toast. A creamy, gentle mouth feel is backed by pleasing tannins and dark chocolate. It won a gold medal and best in class at the 2017 Wenatchee Wine Awards. Culinary maven Holly suggests serving it with grilled salmon, wild mushroom risotto or grilled flank steak. Milbrandt Vineyards 2014 Katherine Leone Vineyard Single Vineyard Series Syrah, Wahluke Slope, $42: Katherine Leone is a vineyard perched on the eastern edge of the

Wahluke Slope, overlooking the Columbia River and within view of dramatic Sentinel Gap, is well established as a top site for Syrah. This superb example leads with aromas of eucalyptus and forest floor, followed by flavors of ripe blackberry, Marionberry, roasted meat and chocolate-covered cherries. The creamy texture is balanced by rich, precise tannins that give way to a long finish. It won gold and best in class at the 2017 Wenatchee Wine & Food Festival Wine Competition. Plain Cellars 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, Wahluke Slope, $35: Another gold medal cab for this North Cascades winery, this time using grapes from the warm Wahluke Slope near Mattawa. Aromas of ripe cherry, blackberry and subtle black olive lead to flavors of black and blue fruit that really expands across the palate. Ginkgo Forest Winery 2012 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, Wahluke Slope, $24: One of the few wineries located on the warm, remote Wahluke Slope, Ginkgo Forest now has tasting rooms in Tacoma and Prosser. This luscious red shows why Cab is king in Washington, with aromas of black currant and blackberry, followed by flavors of plum, apple wood-smoked meat

The Fries family grows the grapes for its Desert Wind Winery 2015 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon at its 480-acre Desert Wind Vineyard on the Wahluke Slope. This wine is sold at Desert Wind Winery in Prosser, Wash., and the family has a residence on the Wahluke Slope near the town of Desert Aire.

and a hint of cinnamon. The plush mouthfeel gives way to a long, memorable finish. Learn more about wine at www. greatnorthwestwine.com. Andy Perdue and Eric Degerman run Great Northwest Wine, an award-winning media company.

Resume-writing rules to break — and ones you should not BY CARRIE RODRIGUEZ crodriguez@soundpublishing.com

Your objective: to write a banging resume. Through a quick Google search, you will discover that there are many new — and tried and true — ways to produce a killer resume. Here are some contemporary and good old-fashioned resume-writing tips to solidify your status as a superb candidate:

Delete your objective White out that outdated “objective statement” you’ve kept at the top of your resume for years. Instead, add a “performance summary” to put a modern spin on an outdated resume feature, according to Fast Company. An “objective” signifies what a job candidate wants out of their career, which won’t do much help the job

seeker. By replacing your objective statement with a “performance summary,” you are instead letting the hiring personnel know what you can do or what you’ve already done, according to Fast Company. Under this heading you can highlight your abilities in relation to the job you are applying for, using words and phrases listed in the job posting.

Tell a story Are you a resultsoriented professional or a motivated self-starter? If you are, don’t include descriptions like that on your resume, unless you want to sound like every other job seeker, according to Forbes’ “Ten Resume-Writing Rules You’re Allowed To Break Now.” This type of “robot language” diminishes candidates, the article continues.

Ditch the lackluster jargon and humanize your resume by telling a story in your resume. Tell the story of how you met or exceeded your goals, or what makes you a team player.

5 commandments of resume-writing While resume-writing is a multi-million-dollar

AAA Washington invites the best. That could mean you! AAA Washington provides roadside assistance, insurance, and travel services to over 1.1 million members in Washington State and Northern Idaho. Headquartered in Bellevue, WA, the organization is comprised of approximately 650 dedicated staff located at the corporate offices, and over 17 retail locations.

industry and many companies may try to lure job seekers with some sort of a secret formula, writing an effective resume is not a complicated process, according to Matt Youngquist, founder of Career Horizons in Bellevue, in his blog post, “5 Steps to a ‘Very Good’ Resume.” He noted there are definitely times when hiring somebody to write your resume is a smart idea, just

like you might hire somebody to fix your plumbing or do your taxes. “But be wary of firms that make the process sound more mystical or complicated than it really is,” said Youngquist, a recognized expert in the field of career coaching, job hunting and professional employment counseling. “Ultimately, I maintain that there are only five key guidelines that a resume needs to pass in order to be highly effective.” Those tips are: 1. Your resume needs to look good. 2. Your resume needs to be error-free. 3. Your resume needs to have a clear focus. 4. Your resume needs to include the right buzzwords. 5. Your resume needs to showcase your top accomplishments. Ultimately, Youngquist

said that most resume decisions come down to your own preference in terms of what you choose to share about yourself. But if you make sure you don’t violate the aforesaid “five commandments,” your resume will be in decent shape. “Personally, I’d say that I come across a truly showstopping ‘great’ resume about as often as I come across a ‘great’ website that stands out from the crowd and takes my breath away. Not very often,” Youngquist said. “So if I were you, I’d settle for putting together a ‘very good’ piece, with or without outside help, then concentrate your efforts on running a ‘great’ marketing and networking campaign for yourself — something that IS possible and that will tend to have a much better impact on your overall success rate, in the long run!”

Tips for acing a job interview BY CARRIE RODRIGUEZ crodriguez@soundpublishing.com

Your resume made the cut — now it’s time for you to stand out during the interview. From deciding how to dress, to anticipating what questions the interviewer will ask, there are several stressful aspects that applicants may dwell on. But the key to gaining confidence and acing a job interview is preparation. Indeed’s Career Guide offers the following tips for job applicants to prepare for an interview: • Practice strong answers. Research the company so you have a solid understanding of the job requirements and how your background makes you a

great fit. • Prepare your answer to the common question: “Tell me about yourself, and why are you interested in this role with our company?” Quickly communicate who you are and what value you will bring to the company. • Re-read the job description. Think about examples from your work history that align with these requirements. In addition, Indeed encourages applicants to prepare to be asked about times in the past when you used a specific skill. Tell anecdotes using the STAR method with a clear Situation, Task, Action and Result. • Practice your answers out loud, either to yourself or with a friend. • Prepare smart questions

to show them that you are thinking seriously about what it would be like to work there. For example: “Can you explain some of the day-to-day responsibilities this job entails?” or “How would you describe the characteristics of someone who would succeed in this role?” • Think about first impressions and dress appropriately. Ask the job recruiter beforehand what the dress code in the workplace is and dress accordingly, or research the company to learn what’s appropriate. Check for little things: shine your shoes, make sure your nails are tidy and check your clothes for holes and loose threads. • Arrive 10–15 minutes early. Map out your route to the interview location so you will be sure to arrive on time. • Practice confident, accessible body language. Sit or stand tall with your shoulders back. Before the interview, take a deep

breath and exhale slowly to help you manage anxiety and boost self-confidence. Jennifer Blanck, a longtime Toastmasters member and career coach, offers the following tips to prepare for and ace a job interview: • Know yourself. Understand your values, priorities and how to present your strengths and weaknesses.

Also take the time to prepare concrete examples that demonstrate your relevant skills and experience. • Research the position, organization, its competitors and the interviewer. This will help you answer questions and shows you’re interested in getting the job. • Make the right impres-

sion. Arrive at the location of the interview early, turn off your cell phone, stay focused on the interview and actively listen to the interviewer. Greet everyone you encounter with a smile and a firm handshake. For more information, visit www.indeed.com, and www.toastmasters.org/ findaclub.
