Seattle Children’s Theatre launches 2022 season with ‘Red Riding Hood’

Children's theater is back! Here's what will be on stage (and online).

Seattle Children’s Theatre is ready to welcome audiences with a 2022 season of productions available both online and in person.

Managing Director Kevin Malgesini said the season “is designed to tell the stories that matter and make a difference in the lives of young people.”

Some titles may sound familiar as they were part of SCT’s 2019-20 season, postponed because of the pandemic.
