About this show

Seattle Children's Theatre presents the world premiere of The Neverending Story, adapted from the novel by Michael Ende and featuring new original music from the rock band Heart. The play opens with young Bastian, a bookish boy tormented by school bullies. But when an old bookseller gives Bastian a most amazing book, he finds refuge in the story on its pages. Fantastica is in grave danger. The Nothing engulfs everything in its path, and the Childlike Empress sends the unlikely hero Atreyu, a boy of Bastian's age, on a quest to find the one who can save them all. Atreyu's adventure takes him to the far corners of Fantastica, through the Swamp of Sadness, the cave of a giant spider, and the maze of the Southern Oracle, aided by the happy Luck Dragon, Falkor. But it is with Bastian's belief in the story that Fantastica has found its true savior. Imagination will live on, and the story begins again...
