We are way beyond thrilled to announce our 2019-2020 Season of Heroes! Check out this lineup and you’ll know why!
WHIDBEY CHILDREN’S THEATRE
SEASON OF HEROES 2019-2020
Fall Mainstage Play for 3rd-12th grades
November 8-17, 2019
It is not usual for a modern work to become a classic so quickly, but this story is clearly in this very special category. It stirs the imagination and intellect of everyone it touches. Don't be fooled by its fairy-tale demeanor; this is very much a story for adults, though children will enjoy it, too. A classic tale of an unlikely hero taking on seemingly insurmountable obstacles….It begins a little something like this: In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Just 5 months til we build Middle Earth, all!
Jungle Book, KIDS
Winter Mainstage Musical for 3rd-6th grades
January 31-February 9, 2020
Banished by the ferocious tiger, Shere Khan, human child, Mowgli, and his panther friend, Bagheera, are on the run in the deepest parts of the jungle. They encounter characters of all sorts on their escapades and adventures, eventually leading their fellow animals on a heroic journey to restore peace to the jungle.
