Seattle Spotlight: December 2007
Let's Hear It for the Boys
Seattle Children's Theatre will present David S. Craig's adaptation of Michael Ende's beloved novel The Neverending Story, featuring original music by the rock band Heart (December 7-January 27). Bastian, a young boy tormented by school bullies, receives an amazing book that gives him refuge.
Our American Theatre continues to present readings of classic plays. Up next is The Dining Room (December 3-4), A.R. Gurney's exploration of the dining room throughout the 20th Century. Renton Civic Theatre presents The Lion in Winter (December 7-23) by James Goldman. Meanwhile, Medea Knows Best is Nebunele Theatre's contribution this month (December 7-22). Euripides' classic story of the sorceress Medea, betrayed by Jason of the Argonauts, is given a 1950s musical twist with a quirky, creepy doo-wop chorus.
