Christmas concert 2022 (12/10/2022)

Christmas concert of the Bulgarian community in Seattle.
Like in a fairytale, where the main character goes through various hurdles that make them grow, our community, in the times of social distancing, realized how much it cherishes our togetherness. The opportunity to sing and dance together, to celebrate and laugh together. We started to truly appreciate what we had before 2020 in times when we couldn’t have it. Now we know how terrific it is to be able to laugh together. How incredibly luxurious it is to perform together on our communal stage. How blissful it is to hold our hands in a big circle, dancing horo at the grand finale of our Christmas concert.
Dear friends,
We invite you to our annual Christmas concert, “Like in a Fairytale,” organized by the Bulgarian Cultural and Heritage Center of Seattle.

Мasters of Comedy (10/11/2019)

Ticket link: 

“Masters of Comedy” is a satirical comedy and musical show about news, events and life in Bulgaria and Europe. 

The stage is some kind of “television studio” with multimedia and dynamic lighting. The stage resembles the late evening shows known to Bulgarian viewers from the long-standing incarnations of famous and beloved Bulgarian actors Georgi Mamalev, Kamen Vodenicharov and Toncho Tokmakchiev. Current topics in contemporary Bulgarian politics, economics, media, arts, lifestyle and new music are presented to viewers in an ironic and fun way. On the stage stand heroes and characters from the Bulgarian reality, played by popular comedians, who through conditional “interviews”, “reports”, “live TV broadcasts” and “witness stories” recreate the excitement of present-day Bulgaria. The three artists perform on stage in several different comic and serious images. 

The performance includes sketches, lyrics and characters from TV and theater formats recreated over the years by the actors. The show features some of the most popular songs in the history of TV shows “Ku-ku“, “Channel”, “UFO” and “The Channel Show”. 

Georgi Mamalev, Kamen VodenicharovToncho Tokmakchiev. 

Tickets are $ 35 and $ 40 (depending on seats), $ 45 at the door.
