The Green Sheep: An Innovative Theater Experience For Seattle’s Littlest Lambs

 SCT & The Children’s Museum, Seattle Collaborate. 


RUN DATES:            June 5 - August 31



( Seattle , WA ) – Seattle Children’s Theatre and The Children’s Museum, Seattle have teamed up to bring Seattle audiences the Windmill Performing Arts production of The Green Sheep, an innovative and interactive theatre experience designed specifically for children ages 1-4. Parents and toddlers will sit in the sheep pen as they take a stimulating journey through color, size and distance searching for the ever elusive green sheep.


The play, directed by Windmill’s Creative Producer Cate Fowler, is based on Mem Fox and Judy Horacek’s book “Where is the Green Sheep?” Through a 50-minute play filled with music, movement, and puppetry and a 20 minute interactive, creative drama workshop, toddlers will be delighted and captivated while their parents learn new and imaginative ways to engage in creative play with their kids.


Inspired by the toddler theatre she saw in Australia , Seattle Children’s Theatre Artistic Director Linda Hartzell is delighted to bring The Green Sheep to Seattle . “This lovely, lively, and imaginative piece is perfect for the littlest little ones,” says Hartzell, who believes that it is never too early to introduce a child to the wonders of theatre.  “We are thrilled to collaborate with SCT,” says K C Gauldine, CEO of The Children’s Museum, Seattle .  “As the institution focused specifically on early childhood development --and the parent’s role in this development, we believe The Green Sheep will be fun for very young children while assisting parents in understanding how playful interaction supports their own child’s learning.”


The Green Sheep ensemble includes local Seattle musician Matt Johnston as well as Seattle cast members Michaela Koerner and Connor Toms. The project is being directed by Cate Fowler, Creative Director of Windmill Performing Arts. Fowler is a producer and presenter of work for children and family audiences. She has been responsible for producing Windmill's new productions including Wilfrid Gordon Macdonald Partridge, Brundibar, The Snow Queen, Riverland (Helpmann Award Winner), Afternoon of the Elves and Midnite.
