All the world is a stage and, in the business world, Christina Marie Kimball and Jenni Butz believe getting the right part is all about a good performance.

Kimball, an entrepreneurial business coach, and Butz, a motivational speaker, began Business Theatre Live nearly a month ago with the goal of providing an entertaining venue for business development and networking.

“We wanted something on the Eastside where people are coming together face to face and working to improve their business,” said Butz. “... We think we’re hilarious. We crack ourselves up.”

The monthly performances in Business Theatre Live’s spring series feature local entrepreneurs sharing the secrets of their success, creative advertising space through performance skits and a “Final Act” workshop.

“We want it to be immediately practical,” Butz said of the informational performances and speakers.

The next performance at the Bellevue Youth Theatre on Northup Way will be May 20, but Kimball said there will likely be a break in the summer with a September restart.

“It’s real fun to start thinking, with all of our community networking, great ways of meeting people,” she said.
