Lots of fun choices open for children this month, as Seattle Children's Theatre debuts their 101st world premiere, I Was A Rat! (May 1-June 7), where Roger the rat is thrown in jail for being a sewer monster and saved by the Princess and the Cobbler. Rapunzel lets down her hair at SecondStory Repertory (May 8-24). Thistle Theatre wonders if you should help the grocer or help the poet in The Goblin and the Poet (May 13-June 7). Heidi comes down from the Swiss Alps to Tacoma Musical Playhouse (May 23-31) and The Little Mermaid comes out of the sea at Moonpaper Tent (May 1-16).
