Taproot Theatre adds honey tasting from Shoreline bees to its latest production

Tuesday, March 14, 2023

The latest production from Taproot Theatre in north Seattle is As It is in Heaven.

“’Tis a gift to be simple,” sing the Shakers of Pleasant Hill, the setting of Arlene Hutton’s As It is in Heaven, a regional premiere at Taproot Theatre. 

But as the young women in the community claim new spiritual gifts, Sister Hannah and the other elders must judge whether these gifts are real or rebellion. Set during America’s surge of Utopian communities, the play wrestles with belief and doubt in a swiftly changing world.

Based on true events, the play asks questions about faith and tradition and what we do when someone’s encounter with the divine is beyond our own understanding. Directed by Marianne Savell, the show opens on March 24, 2023 and runs through April 22, 2023.

The Shakers brought Italian bees to the U.S. in the 19th century, and you can experience the simple pleasure of honey from Rainy Day Bees on April 7, 2023 at 6:30pm at this exclusive add-on event for patrons who have tickets to Taproot Theatre’s As It is in Heaven that evening.

For only $10, join Peter Nolte of Rainy Day Bees in Shoreline to taste the unique flavors of 5 honeys produced by small beekeepers. You’ll explore the flavors from different flowers and regions while learning about beekeeping and threats to bee health.

Tickets are available online at taproottheatre.org, by phone at 206-781-9707 (Tue-Sat, noon-5:00pm), or in person at 204 N 85th St. Ticket prices for As It is in Heaven range from $25-56 with discounts available for students, seniors, active military, 25 and Under and TeenTix members. Add-on tickets for the honey tasting are $10.
