Free Community Event

February 23, 2019

Entering a second year of outreach and partnership, Seattle Children’s Theatre (SCT) and Kaiser Permanente’s “Free Educational Theater Program” has visited nearly 22,000 students and 2,100 Teachers statewide. The Educational Theater Program consists of touring productions, in class residencies, workshops and professional development opportunities for teachers and students alike. All of our programming is designed to inspire children, teens and adults to make informed decisions about their health and build stronger communities. 

This February 2019, SCT will offer a free community event and the opportunity to see our touring productions of Above Between Below, the Kaiser Permanente touring show for grades 5-8 and a world premiere of Ghosted along with post-show discussions. Both performances and workshops are available to the public free of charge at the Seattle Children's Theatre on Saturday, February 23rd, 2019! Between each performance, SCT will offer free workshops focused on Social Emotional Learning (SEL) based on the themes of both shows. This programming supports the (SEL) Health Education Standards and Benchmarks for Washington State Public Schools in areas of mental, emotional and social health.

Ghosted
Grade Recommendation:
 For Grades 9+
Running Time: 1 hour

Ghosted tells the story of four students as they navigate through a single day of high school. When one of them experiences a bout of anxiety and is sent to the counselor’s office, issues of friendship and honesty lead all of them to reveal hard truths about their personal experiences and lives. Following these disclosures, the characters brainstorm a collective path towards resiliency, personal strength and mutual support. Following the play, the cast will engage with student audiences in a conversation about resiliency. The objective of the conversation is to further examine the themes of the play, and offer students resources and additional information about a healthy personal growth.
