Laugh,  tremble with horror-comedy Turbo Turkey: The Dark Meat  Tickets a mere $10

Get set for spine-tingling laughs with Turbo Turkey: The Dark Meat, four horror-comedy shorts from the demented minds of Turbo Turkey. The show perform at Burien Actors Theatre July 29 through Aug. 6.


Turbo Turkey: The Dark Meat features four one-act plays written by members of the Turbo Turkey improv and sketch comedy troupe, and premiering at Burien Actors Theatre.

A young man brings his girlfriend home to meet his parents in the unusual guess-who’s-coming-to-dinner scenario Guess Who We’re Having for Dinner, written by Diana Martin. In Dinner at ‘Ate,’ written by Anna Richardson, a zombie in denial of her identity struggles to have a normal dinner party in the midst of the apocalypse.

When a stuffed toy otter comes to life and becomes a young girl’s best friend in Jenny, written by Adam Hegg, murder and mayhem ensue and little is what it seems. Revenge gets serious during a reunion of family and friends in RSVP to R.I.P, written by Josh Rodriguez.

Presented by Turbo Turkey in association with Burien Actors Theatre, Turbo Turkey: The Dark Meat is suitable for ages 13 and up due to occasional strong language and some acts of violence.

Letter: SeaTac Attorney should resign

To the editor:

The city delayed the development causing financial duress and then hired a phantom buyer to go behind the property owner's back to make an agreement with thier lenders to buy the notes? Then, had the phantom buyer threaten the owners with personal bankruptcy and take everything they have to force the owners to sign over the property to the City of SeaTac?

That is wrong on so many levels.

The 12 member jury and Judge McDermott agreed that this is wrong and awarded the property owners a total of $18.3 million.

Mary Mirante Bartolo, the SeaTac City Attorney, who oversaw the process should submit her resignation and the City of SeaTac should profoundly apologize to the Kingens.

There is something wrong with how government employees are viewing their role. This needs to be analyzed and the proper role of government more clearly defined.

Pat's View: “ Parading Around”

“I love a parade, the tramping of feet,
I love every beat I hear of a drum.
I love a parade, when I hear a band
I just want to stand and cheer as they come.”

The preceding song lyrics have been sung by which of the below performers?

Bessie Smith
Maxine Sullivan
The Lawrence Welk Orchestra
(Three out of three is correct. Incorrect answers not offered include Macklemore, Beyonce and Soundgarden.)

But beyond singing about a parade, being part of one seems like the easiest thing in the world. After all, all you have to do is walk along---or, in the best of circumstances, ride along aboard a car or some sort of platform, right?

But if you want to be truly great there is more required.

And since we are just underway with the year’s summer parade season, this writing space seems like an excellent platform for advice and reflection on the art of processions and marches---be it for celebrating patriotism, Santa Claus, gay pride---or all three.
