    Lonely Kazoo Rock Opera Confronts Disposable Culture, Oceanic Destruction and the
    Need for a Home

    SEATTLE â€" "The Lonely Kazoo: A Synthetic Journey to Heaven" is an operatic coming-of-age
    story about a young kazoo searching for a new home as a post-consumer product. Featuring a
    rock band, shadow puppets and, of course, kazoos, the show will play August 19 at the Fremont
    Abbey.

    After a raucous party in which his valu-pak family is torn open by a group of joyful humans,
    our kazoo hero is discarded in the city streets. Now dirty and used, no human will ever play him
    again, yet still he exists. He is plastic and will be on earth for at least 10,000 years, but never
    again as an instrument.

    The Lonely Kazoo takes us on a wonderful, but perhaps not unusual, journey through city gutters
    and down great American rivers. We visit abandoned rust belt factories and terrifying forests.
    We make it to the sea and just float where the current takes us … the plastic garbage patch in the
    Pacific.

    An art show featuring local artists addressing plastics, disposable culture or environmental
    destruction will accompany the opera. The show, while sometimes dark, is family-friendly. All
    ages are encouraged to attend. There will be a post-show discussion with some contributing
    artists and community organizers.

    Bring your own kazoo if you have one.

    The music and lyrics to "The Lonely Kazoo: A Synthetic Journey to Heaven" are available free
    online (though payment is graciously accepted) at LonelyKazoo.com.
