Pippi Longstocking is coming to the Seattle Children's Theatre!

I'm so excited for the launch of the 2013-2014 season at Seattle Children's Theatre!  The first show coming is Pippi Longstocking. Read on for details!

SCT kicks off its 39th Season with Pippi Longstocking: The Family Musical

(Seattle, WA) – Seattle Children’s Theatre is delighted to open its 2013-14 Season with a musical adaptation of Pippi Longstocking: The Family Musical. Based on the beloved novel by Astrid Lindgren, and adapted for the stage by Sebastian and Staffan G√∂stestam, Pippi Longstocking: The Family Musical premieres September 26th, 2013 and runs through November 3rd in SCT’s Charlotte Martin Theatre. Rita Giomi will direct.

For decades, SCT’s Artistic Director Linda Hartzell has searched to find a script that would truly tell of the generous spirit, boundless enthusiasm and brave heart of Pippi Longstocking – qualities that have made her the legendary and beloved literary character that she is. That goal has now been achieved with SCT’s season opener Pippi Longstocking: The Family Musical, which has been lovingly adapted for the stage. Full of theatrical surprises, Pippi’s story will provide inspiration for boys and girls alike, at any and every age with its boisterous, fun, and touching story of a strong girl and her determined optimism.
