Shrug off the squareness of reality and fall into an entertaining re-imagination of Lewis Carroll's classic tale of nonsense and fantasy with Through the Looking Glass: The Burlesque Alice in Wonderland. From the minds of Artistic Director Lily Verlaine and collaborator Jasper McCann -- producers of the wildly successful holiday burlesque extravaganza Land of the Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker and the wine-soaked Burlesco DiVino: Wine in Rome -- comes this scintillating story of Alice as she discovers what's beyond the velvet rope at Wonderland's most exclusive nightclub, The Looking Glass. This show features the superstars of Seattle's burlesque A-list, including Lily Verlaine, Miss Indigo Blue, Babette La Fave, Miss Inga Ingénue, Trojan Original, Paris Original and Jasper McCann.

Raiatea Mokihana Maile Helm made history in 2006 as Hawai‘i’s first solo female vocalist ever to receive a Grammy nomination for her sophomore CD Sweet and Lovely.
At 21 years old, she was one of the youngest performers to attend the 42nd Annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California. It was a remarkable achievement when you consider that she comes from the tiny island of Moloka’i, Hawai’i, a mere wisp of volcanic land in the middle the Pacific Ocean.
The Arts and Leisure Desk of The New York Times (February 5, 2006) featured a list of Grammy-nominated artists who had produced stunning work but who were likely to be over looked as celebrity public relations machines pushed the glitz of industry icons. The NYT wrote of Raiatea Helm, “[She] sings in the high-voiced throwback leo ki‘eki‘e style without a hint of kitsch. Her second album_ Sweet and Lovely _is poised and utterly elegant.”
Raiatea Helm’s recent appearance onto the national music scene with her Grammy nomination was a natural progression of her growth within the Hawaiian music community. Her debut recording, Far Away Heaven, captured the prestigious Female Vocalist of the Year and Most Promising Artist Awards from the 2003 Hawai‘i Academy of Recording Artists (HARA).
Raiatea Helm continued her award-winning tradition two years later with the release of her second CD Sweet and Lovely (Raiatea Helm Records). At the 2005 HARA Awards ceremony, she was recognized again as Female Vocalist of the Year and also received the coveted Favorite Entertainer of the Year Award. With the additional acknowledgement for technical merit in Engineering (Dave Tucciarone) and Graphic Design (Mele McPherson), she now claims six Na Hoku Hanohano Awards. Few performers of any age can match that achievement.
