Skip the hassle and big price tag of trekking to Seattle to enjoy live performances. The Kent-Meridian Performing Arts Center, located at Kent-Meridian High School, is host to the city’s annual Spotlight Series. The series, which runs October through March, features nationally and internationally acclaimed music, theatre, dance and comedy. Each year brings an exciting slate of entertainment, including some long-time audience favorites, such as the annual Magical Strings Celtic Yuletide Concert and electric performances by Seattle Rock Orchestra. The venue also stages student plays presented by Kent-Meridian High School, and hosts the annual Kent Has Talent competition each fall.
