Seattle Children’s Theatre Presents The Velveteen Rabbit
Running November 1-December 30, 2018, The Velveteen Rabbit is Seattle Children’s Theatre’s holiday show.
The show comes to Seattle from the Unicorn Theatre in London, which is the UK’s leading theatre for young audiences.
I saw my first Eric Carle book when I was in kindergarten. It was Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? and our class did an art project where we each created a page in the book.
It’s my most memorable art project from elementary school and that book was definitely a favorite growing up.
Seattle Waterfront Shuttle
Have you heard about the Seattle Waterfront Shuttle? It’s the newest Seattle tour bus (it just launched 3 weeks ago) and it’s completely free!
It’s available 7 days a week from 10am-8pm this summer/fall and stops at 9 attractions near downtown Seattle and along Seattle’s waterfront.
The Lamp is the Moon
The Lamp is the Moon is a new works production at Seattle Children’s Theatre. Annelih GH Hamilton plays Shawn, a young girl who is supposed to be taking a nap, but can’t fall asleep. But, it’s not surprising. See, her grandmother gives her an old lamp right before nap time. This is frustrating to her because her mind is already ticking about all the possibilities of things she can do with her lamp. Her parents have already taken out the light bulb and cut the cord so its only function is to inspire creativity. It’s impossible to fall asleep when she has a lot of dreaming to do.
Seattle Children’s Theatre at Seattle Center
I was thrilled to be invited to the opening night of Naked Mole Rat Gets Dressed: The Rock Experience at Seattle Children’s Theatre last Friday. My 4 year old loves Mo Willems’ humorous books. However, we had just seen Hamilton at the Paramount. That’s a REALLY hard act to follow for any theatrical performance. But, I’m very passionate about arts for kids. Plus, we heard Mo Willems was going to be at opening night! Post contains affiliate links.
The Story of The Little Prince
Possibly set in the 1930s, a pilot crashes his plane into the Sahara Desert in Africa. While trying to fix his airplane, he comes across a little man (the Little Prince) dressed in green who is from an asteroid out in space. He tells the pilot about a beautiful rose that he left behind so he could journey across the galaxy. As the little man tells his tales, the pilot is slowly drawn into a world filled with imaginative thinking and strong friendships.
Mr. Popper’s Penguins
Seattle Children’s Theatre‘s holiday production is Mr. Popper’s Penguins. After a successful run on 42nd Street in New York City, it’s debuting at SCT. The show is recommended for kids ages four and up. It features penguin puppets, vivid storytelling, actors playing multiple characters, lively songs, and so much more!
If you ask me about my Holiday Season, I can sum it up with the words: The Snowy Day. Thanks to Amazon Prime, my 3-year-old and I watched their version of The Snowy Day about 50 times (I’m not exaggerating.) I had surprising never read the book as a kid, but it seems to be everyone’s favorite winter-time book for kids. After seeing the Amazon Prime version, I see the appeal. So, when I was invited to Seattle Children’s Theatre’s The Snowy Day and Other Stories by Ezra Jack Keats, I had the perfect date in mind.
