Tumbleweed Zephyr Poster

Date: Thursday, Aug. 20, 2015
Time: 8:00 PM
Location: MainStage of 12th Avenue Arts, 1640 12th Avenue, Seattle, WA!

The Old West scf-fi adventure, The Tumbleweed Zephyr, returns to the thrilling, steampunk-inspired universe of the 2013 production The Clockwork Professor. Two brothers, Atticus and Kai, climb aboard the Tumbleweed Zephyr, a transcontinental train headed out of New Providence for the wilds of the Western Territories. But what starts as a simple journey by rail soon takes an unexpected turn, with airship bandit raids, twists of fate, wayward sparks of romance, and the lonely call of a train whistle echoing across the clear desert sky. So grab your satchel and dust off your best traveling hat for this epic new summer adventure!
The Tumbleweed Zephyr is pulling into the station at the MainStage of 12th Avenue Arts, 1640 12th Avenue, Seattle, WA! The August 20th performance is a special benefit for ULP.
