NEWS BRIEFS: Living Legends’ ‘Seasons’ stages tonight in Port Angeles … and other items

PORT ANGELES — The Living Legends “Seasons” show is tonight.

Dances, songs and authentic Latin American, Native American and Polynesian costumes combine in the show at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of Port Angeles High School, 304 E. Park Ave.

For tickets and more information, see and click “Buy Tickets.”

Brigham Young University students from the three cultures join together for the college’s Living Legends show.

Started in 1971, the troupe has performed worldwide, including at the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City and most recently in Samoa, New Zealand and Tonga during the 2016 season.

Artistic director Janielle Christensen, who has been with the group for 26 years, said “Seasons” is a “magnificent 90-minute show.

“It’s a spectacle of dancing, scenic elements and visuals, and it carries with it a little bit more narrative,” she said.

“It’s so unique that there’s no other cultural group around doing something of this scope.”

Living Legends originates in the Department of Dance, College of Fine Arts and Communications, at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.
