When James is sent by his conniving aunts to chop down their old fruit tree, he discovers a magic potion that results in a giant peach which falls off the tree and into the ocean, launching him on a journey of epic proportions. As the peach is transported across the waves, he must create community with the other denizens on board — a group of human-sized insects with vivid personalities.
Marc Kenison has directed several productions at Cornish, most recently Above the Fruitless Plain. Marc was recently featured in Seattle Opera's production of The Barber of Seville and continues to light up local and international cabaret stages as "boylesque" superstar Waxie Moon.
Witness the story of 12-year-old Ben Uchida, a Japanese-American boy whose life is changed forever following the World War II attack on Pearl Harbor. When the U.S. government forces Japanese-American citizens into internment camps, Ben and his family must face difficult truths about the idea of home. One young person's struggle to understand a society allowing mass discrimination against its citizens poses questions as urgent today as they were in the past.
Meet Shawn, a bright young girl with a head full of science and imagination, which makes nap times particularly difficult. Today, it's her friend Lamp that, despite having no cord and no bulb, triggers a wide-awake adventure when it reveals its greatest dream is to learn to fly and become the moon. Launch into a voyage fit for mission control as Shawn and her lamp, with the guidance of the audience, escape another nap time and blast into space.
In the middle of the Sahara Desert, a stranded aviator meets the Little Prince, a young boy from a small, faraway asteroid, and a dreamlike journey unfolds across a universe. A rose, a sheep, and an array of unusual adults on their own small planets spark wonder in artistic director Courtney Sale's Seattle Children's Theatre directorial debut. Adapted from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's classic novella, this treasured tale reminds us of the power of innocence and boundless love.
"They are a little bit rat. They are a little bit mole. They are all naked." Well, except Wilbur, that is. Emmy winner and Caldecott honoree Mo Willems is back, once again teaming up with Deborah Wicks La Puma, composer of Elephant & Piggie's "We Are in a Play!", for this world premiere rock 'n' roll extravaganza. Grab your friends and watch as Wilbur, a clothes-loving mole rat with exceptional style, navigates the pressure to be just like everyone else. With tail-shaking tunes, empowering messages of individuality, and classic Mo Willems humor, this musical is sure to rock audiences of all ages.
Seussical: The Musical ingeniously interweaves a series of classic tales by author-illustrator Dr. Seuss, in which themes of power and privilege, insiders and outsiders, and who gets to tell whose story are played out metaphorically through the interactions of such vivid characters as the Cat in the Hat, Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, and the Lorax. Seussical is smart, inventive, tuneful, and appropriate for all ages.
