The Future Remembered: The 1962 World's Fair & Its Legacy (Live Performance)
FREE. Chutzpah and doggedness typified the community movers and shakers who planned and launched the 1962 Seattle World's Fair. Now, fifty years later, the characters who made the fair a reality are in the limelight once again in The Future Remembered, a staged reading by Book-It Repertory Theatre sponsored by 4Culture and the Duwamish Longhouse.  

It's adapted and directed by Annie Lareau from the newly-released retrospective, The Future Remembered: The 1962 Seattle World's Fair and Its Legacy by Paula Becker, Alan J. Stein and the HistoryLink.org staff.  

The performance takes its audience back to the mid-fifties, when City Councilman Al Rochester proposed the fair as a 50th anniversary celebration of the 1909 Alaska Pacific Yukon Exposition, Seattle's first world's fair. The story arcs through the heady and anxious days leading up to opening day, April 21, 1962, and culminates with the closing of Century 21 on October 21. Along the way, a cast of four actors channel the colorful personalities who contributed to the fair that transformed the Puget Sound region forever.

Families welcome. History focus geared to middle school students thru adults.
