The only thing I love more than children’s books is professional children’s theatre. Combine the two and, in my opinion, you have a perfect package. Books are meant to come alive. If not in your imagination, the stage is the next best thing!

Before I became a librarian, I wanted to perform in (and create) traveling productions of plays based on children’s books. Maybe someday I still will. But, for now, I simply like to watch productions of plays based on children’s books. They are my Broadway.

Anyways, here are the local PNW shows I’ve got my eye on this season. Click the links to go to the show’s page on the theatre’s website. Let me know of any cool shows in your area in the comments!
