Seattle, WA – December 9, 2011

The Moisture Festival clamors towards its ninth annual springtime celebration of comedy/varietè and
burlesque, March 15 – April 8, 2012, featuring 49 shows at three unique Seattle venues!
The Moisture Festival’s varietè shows feature a rapid succession of acts showcasing comedy alongside

awe-inspiring physical and mental dexterity, with poignant moments of strength and delicate beauty to
make audiences laugh, wonder, shake heads in disbelief and truly appreciate how live entertainment can
exhilarate and bring real joy. A live show band propels each performance. Varietè has its roots in the

Music Halls of 19th century England, cabaret in Europe, and vaudeville in America. Because of the
talented artists currently working in this genre, it is still fresh, exciting and tremendous fun for the
audience. Ninety percent of The Moisture Festival shows are all ages/family friendly, not to say

puritanical. Some late night adult varietè and burlesque shows flirt with more spice.
Part of the mission of The Moisture Festival is to bring world-class varietè entertainment to multiple
Seattle neighborhoods at a reasonable ticket price. The Festival originated in Fremont and that

neighborhood’s creative heartbeat continues to provide the strong pulse for the Festival’s expansion.
Performances at Hale’s Palladium in Fremont will run the length of the festival, opening on The Ides of
March (March 15) and continuing through Easter (April 8).

For the very first time Moisture Festival will make its debut at Broadway Performance Hall for two
weekends of burlesque and varietè shows. The producers are very excited about expanding into such a
vibrant and energetic neighborhood.

For their traditional April Fools weekend run, The Festival returns to the Georgetown Ballroom, one of
Seattle’s hidden treasures in the eclectic Georgetown neighborhood.
Each year the Festival presents a few shows to benefit worthy organizations. This year the benefit

recipients will be Clowns Without Borders on March 17 at 3:00pm and The Fremont Arts Council on
March 21 at 7:30pm.
