Seattle's Child

Your guide to a kid-friendly city

March plays and concerts are postponed or canceled

To combat coronavirus, most shows are not going on.

Here are the family-friendly plays and concerts scheduled for Seattle this March. On March 11, the state announced a ban for the rest of the month on gatherings of more than 250 people, which means most performances listed here are postponed or canceled. If you are going to a show, even in a venue smaller than 250 seats, call first to make sure it is happening.
