Rollicking pirate tale Bluenose

Opens SCT’s 2008-09 Mainstage Season 

(Seattle, WA) – Seattle Children’s Theatre is excited to present the first show of the Mainstage Season – Bluenose, written by Emil Sher and directed by Allison Narver. Bluenose opens October 17, 2008 in SCT’s Eve Alvord Theatre and runs through December 14, 2008. 

            Bluenose is a rollicking pirate story with quick and witty banter, fantastic physical comedy, and a lovely story of tolerance and acceptance. Three red-nosed pirates stumble across a blue-nosed girl fishing in the water around their boat. Being different from them is an unthinkable offense, and they don’t like it! Despite their bumbling, stumbling ways, she teaches them to let go of their prejudices and fears, and they all learn a little bit about themselves along the way. 

            SCT Artistic Director Linda Hartzell says, “Bluenose is a story that can be shaped to suit the message you want to discuss with your kids—racism, sexism, self-esteem, you name it. And, it’s just plain fun!” 

            SCT is pleased to welcome new and returning artists to the cast of Bluenose. The cast includes Emily Chisholm (The Neverending Story), Timothy Hyland (19 previous SCT productions, most recently The Neverending Story), Hana Lass and Brandon Simmons. Trick Danneker is the understudy. 

            The artistic team will be led by Director Allison Narver, who directed SCT’s production of The Hundred Dresses last season. Narver was previously the Artistic Director for Empty Space Theatre and Annex Theatre; her local directing credits include Eurydice (currently playing) and Clean House (ACT), Memory House and Bad Dates (Seattle Repertory Theatre), and Little Women (Book-It Repertory Theatre), as well as numerous productions during her tenure at Empty Space. 

            Narver is joined by Fight Choreographer Geoffrey Alm (Night of the Living Dead, Hamlet), Costume Designer Scott R. Gray, Music Director Mark Rabe (Busytown, High School Musical), Lighting Designer Jessica Trundy, Choreographer Kathryn Van Meter (Night of the Living Dead, High School Musical), SCT Resident Sound Designer Chris R. Walker and Set Designer Carey Wong (Night of the Living Dead, The Neverending Story). 

            Bluenose will be presented in SCT’s Eve Alvord Theatre. Seattle Children’s Theatre is located at 201 Thomas Street, under the Space Needle at Seattle Center. Tickets for Bluenose range in price from $13 to $33 and may be purchased by calling the SCT Ticket Office at (206) 441-3322 or by visiting Bluenose is recommended for ages 6 and older.
