An exquisitely fashioned toy china rabbit, Edward Tulane, experiences deep love and loss on a tumultuous 20 year journey. Edward is a somewhat vain toy companion to a young girl, and is concerned more with his vast array of lovely outfits than he is with forging relationships. But when the unexpected elements of life come into play, he discovers how easy it is to love someone fiercely and purely, when you yourself are loved in return.

Alice’s insatiable curiosity leads her down the rabbit hole and hurtling into Wonderland. There she calls on all her wit and courage to stay safe and hold on to her sanity.

A half-year after falling into Wonderland, Alice’s adventures take a darker turn. Still restless, she somehow moves through a mirror to find herself trapped, a pawn on a crazy-quilt chessboard.  Her only escape: to travel the length of the board to become a Queen herself. On her quest, she encounters fierce enemies, such as the Dread Jabberwock, and unlikely allies in The Dreams of the Black King

Seussical follows the story of Horton the Elephant, who discovers a speck of dust containing tiny people called the Whos. Horton must protect the Whos from a world of naysayers, all while guarding an egg left in his care by the irresponsible Mayzie La Bird.  Although Horton faces ridicule, danger and a trial, the intrepid Gertrude McFuzz never loses faith in him.  Ultimately, the powers of friendship and community are challenged and emerge triumphant!

RENT follows a year in the life of a group of impoverished young artists and musicians struggling to survive and create in New York City, under the shadow of HIV/AIDS. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Musical and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, it has become a pop cultural phenomenon with songs that rock and a story that resonates with all generations. We at SCT are proud to be the one of the first companies to produce the School Edition while it was still under development, in 2009, and are excited to bring it back to Summer Season!



To make participation in Summer Season shows more accessible, we have adopted a voluntary tiered pricing structure. Once cast, you and your family can choose the tuition level right for you. We will keep tuition information confidential. The tuition level you choose will not influence casting in any way. If your family needs more financial support to participate in Summer Season, you may fill out our financial aid application. This financial support is made possible thanks to the generosity of Seattle Children’s Theatre donors.

  • $775 This tuition level most accurately accounts for the true costs of Summer Season, including royalties, director fees, set and costume materials, and the professional personnel who mentor our technical interns through the experience of mounting a Summer Season show.
  • $615 This is our traditional tuition rate for Summer Season. Paying this amount will go a long way towards helping to cover the Summer Season costs.
  • $300 We hope this tuition rate will allow more families to participate in and comfortably contribute to the Summer Season program.

Callbacks on Saturday, April 21.
Casting Notification on Friday, April 27.
