'Balloonacy': The joy of play at Seattle Children's Theatre

Seattle Children's Theatre


An unusual production is coming to Seattle Children's Theatre.

There is no talking in "Balloonacy."

It is the story of a man (The Old Man) who lives alone and is getting ready to quietly celebrate his birthday. In floats the Red Balloon, and what unsues is Charlie Chaplin-esque physical comedy as Man and Balloon have fun and go on adventures.

Message: It’s never too late to rediscover the unbridled joy of play.

Prediction: Kids will laugh and giggle; adults will laugh — and think.

The show runs March 14-May 5. Full schedule of showtimes + ticket information here.

It is recommended for anyone 3 and older. It is about 40 minutes long with no intermission.
