Seattle-area family theater guide: fall 2019

The stage show "Stomp!" features the sounds of nontraditional "instruments."


Seattle has an amazing theater scene, with venues ranging from Broadway-sized theaters to tiny avant-garde spaces. And there’s lots of great fare for young audiences, and not just at Seattle Children’s Theatre, though it does help to have one of the top kids’ theaters in the country in town. Here’s what you can see this fall.
