Our favorite iconic characters Hansel and Gretel are lost, and have no choice but to sleep in the forest until morning. But the forest grim is not safe for sleeping children: a dream-collecting witch is on the hunt for nightmares to stock her shelves. As Hansel and Gretel slumber, their dreams come alive, and four of the Grimm brothers' most menacing tales, including "The Robber Bridegroom" and "The Juniper Tree" unfold onstage.

One of literature's most enduring young heroines, Meg Murray, takes the stage -- braces, stubbornness,and all.

Pet owners, Roger and Anita, live happily in London with their Dalmatians, Pongo and Perdita, stalwart dogs devoted to raising their puppies. Everything is quiet until Anita's former classmate, the monstrous Cruella De Vil, plots to steal the puppies for her new fur coat. The Dalmatians rally all the dogs of London to bravely rescue the puppies from Cruella and her bumbling henchmen.
In the heart of Paris, a kind and eccentric millionairess wills her entire estate to Duchess, her high-society cat, and her three little kittens. Laughs and adventure ensue as the greedy, bumbling butler pulls off the ultimate catnap caper. It's up to the rough-and-tumble alley cat, Thomas O'Malley, and his band of swingin' jazz cats, to save the day.

14 student actors are needed for a new adaptation of a classic tale directed by Artistic Director Courtney Sale that will be a part of SCT’s 2019-2020 Season. To be eligible for consideration for Mainstage, student actors must be at least in the 4th grade and under 18 years of age as of 2020. 


For Summer Season and Mainstage auditions, student actors will need to present a monologue approx. one minute in length.  If you wish to be considered for a musical, please also prepare 16-32 bars of a musical theatre song (usually a verse and a chorus). A monologue packet with age appropriate suggestions is provided below.

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 here. 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.
