Seattle Children’s Theatre:

  • “The Best Summer Ever!” March 22-April 17. From SCT: “Summer means sleepaway camps, days with friends by the pool, and late nights gazing at the stars. For nine-year-old Maurice Abernathy Anderson, a significant loss and one little lie means his summer just got more complicated.” The show is described as a joyful production with rousing singalongs.
  • “Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus: The Musical!” April 5 through May 22. It’s not hard to imagine how much fun this will be: The Pigeon really wants to drive the bus. He really, really, really wants to! Suddenly, he may get his chance. Naturally, comedy ensues — with puppets, songs and feathers.
