A pig destined for the butcher block is saved when a loyal friend, the spider, tricks the farmer into believing this pig is extraordinary. Watch the heartwarming story of Wilbur and Charlotte unfold as they navigate change and disruption together. The play praises the beauty of life and the value of friendship during difficult times. E.B. White’s poetic lyricism is skillfully adapted by Joseph Robinette to showcase all of the joy and humor of this beloved classic story.

Giles: “Charlotte’s Web is one of the all-time classics of children’s literature. It is a beautiful piece about friendship, while also allowing students to explore concepts of grief and loss. I’m thrilled to welcome back Connor Vetter (of last season’s Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! The Musical!) to helm this project.”

Travers and the classic Walt Disney film, this stage adaptation garnered critical praise on Broadway. It will bring stunning performances of memorable musical numbers close enough to touch in our intimate but spectacular Bell Stage theatre.

Giles: “So many of us grew up watching Disney’s film adaptation of Mary Poppins, and we are so thrilled to present the stage version. It is a rollicking good time, filled with the classic songs you know, as well as a few new additions. And best of all, it centers around two young protagonists. I know this will be a jolly holiday treat for the entire family.”

Giles: “Lilly is one of the most iconic characters in children’s literature in the past 25 years, and Kevin Kling’s adaptation of Henkes’ popular book channels all of Lilly’s spunk and pizzazz into this energic production.”

With younger brother Kenny’s birthday coming in just a few days, the Watson family makes a road trip to visit Grandma to get older brother Byron on the straight and narrow. But their plans go awry and both brothers are forced to grow up quickly. Based on the book “The Watsons Go to Birmingham – 1963” by Christopher Paul Curtis, this small ensemble play imagines the effects the 16th Street Baptist Church Bombings might have on a family visiting Birmingham that fateful Sunday. The event plays a pivotal role in bringing the Watson family together to face the monsters in the dark – both real and imagined.

Giles: “Christopher Paul Curtis’ book, The Watsons Go to Birmingham – 1963, is beautifully adapted here by Cheryl West. I remember reading this book as a child in school, and its humor and powerful message impacted me greatly. This story reminds us how, in the midst of great darkness, those close to us can help us find light.”

D is for Dance Party

By Kerry Ferguson
Run Time: 50 minutes (no intermission)
Single Tickets: $12 – go on sale November 29, 2023

Age recommendation: K4 and up

Younts Stage

Following the structure of the alphabet but filled with the creative chaos of a child’s mind, this play explores language, emotion, and some important shared experiences of childhood. Sometimes it’s loud! Sometimes it’s quiet! Sometimes it’s silly; often, it’s not. Always…it’s a massive messy mess. Audiences of all ages will delight in this theatrical collage (with music!) covering little kid milestones from Art to Naps, Birthdays to Fish Funerals, and Secret Clubs to Spooky Hideouts. In 50 minutes, the play’s ensemble cast will adventure into the challenges and charms of being a child — all the way from A-Z!

Giles: “I am very passionate about programming new work and promoting local artists, which is why I asked local playwright Kerry Ferguson, writer of 21-22’s The Missing Moon, to create this exciting new play for SCCT audiences. Kerry’s work is so uplifting and filled with joy, and I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us this season.”

Pinkalicious wishes that the whole world could be pink, but when she comes down with a serious case of Pinkititis, she learns the value of moderation and self-control with the help of her brother Peter… and a few green vegetables. This sweet musical is a funny way to teach younger audiences that there is such a thing as too much of a good thing.

Giles: “I’m delighted to have Lauren Imhoff return to direct PINKALICIOUS the Musical. This show is nonstop charm and fun from start to finish, and it celebrates the fact that each of us is unique. There’s so much heart in this story, and everyone will have a great time.”

The underwater town of Bikini Bottom is in danger in this epic and electric musical based on the popular cartoon SpongeBob SquarePants.

This wildly entertaining show features songs by famous musical artists and bands that parents will love such as Cyndi Lauper, Panic! At The Disco, and The Flaming Lips to name a few.

Giles: “I couldn’t be more excited to produce this ambitious whale of a musical. Not only does it feature one of the most iconic children’s characters of the past 20 years, it also includes songs from some of the most iconic musicians around. This show is a fun, heartfelt spectacle. Hattie Claire Andres (who works at Seattle Rep) is coming to stage this piece and I can’t wait to watch her bring it to life.”

SCCT’s Bell Stage

SCCT’s Bell Stage is our 299-seat proscenium stage. This is our most traditional theatre and is home to everything from big musicals to smaller plays. Audience members can expect to see larger-scale productions, but in an environment that is still accessible and where everyone feels close to the action. We know everyone says it, but we mean it when we tell you that there is not a bad seat in the house!

SCCT’s Younts Stage

SCCT’s Younts Stage is our black box stage with flexible seating and performance areas, which means that the space can be configured in a wide variety of ways. You may see a production in the Younts and when you return for the next production, the space could be set-up entirely differently. Productions on this stage tend be smaller and more intimate, captivating audience members in exciting new ways.
