Waxie Moon: a screening for a cause
If you missed Wes Hurley’s voyeuristic/anthropological documentary on the singularity that is Waxie Moon, this weekend you can catch an early show for a very noble cause. The Washington Ensemble Theatre (WET) hosts a screening of Waxie Moon on Saturday at Broadway Performance Hall, topped with a reception and silent auction. The fundraiser will benefit WET’s Queer Teen Ensemble Theatre (Q-TET, a program Waxie founded prior to becoming- well, Waxie). Now led by co-artistic director Jessica Hatlo, QTET fosters creativity by providing an outlet for queer teens to workshop collaboratively, creating pieces based on their own identity and experiences and culminating in performances at the end of the summer intensive.
Wes Hurley’s next project is already in the works- this time it will be a feature length art film. Details are elusive but a summer casting call is in place:
“Those of you who live in Seattle, or who are planning on visiting Seattle this summer, have an opportunity to be a part of something truly unique and special – a crazy genre-bending feature-length art film starring Waxie Moon, Marya Sea Kaminski, Sarah Rudinoff, John Osebold, Polly Wood and many many many surprise guest stars. We need tons and tons of extras, and will be shooting all summer.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with a snapshot of yourself, your height/weight, and contact information, if you’re interested in being part of this film. Tell us something about yourself – can you juggle, two-step or sing? Any special skills? Are you comfortable with nudity? Do you have any amazing outfits the world should see you in?”
Everyone involved will be credited in the titles and will get an imdb.com credit as well- please email for information”.

Waxie recently posed for artists at Dr. Sketchy’s Anti-Art School. Hugely talented local painter Randy Phillips was the evening’s top winner. As a special bonus, here’s one of his sketches from that night:
