You’re itching to visit the museum, your partner wants to dine out and your kiddos are all about the playground. With your brood’s many interests, agreeing on a family outing is no easy feat.

Good news: we found an activity that checks the boxes for everyone in your family. Head over to The Northwest Children’s Theater for the ultimate family experience. Whether it’s your first time or you’re seasoned thespians, your crew will love what’s on stage at NWCT. Here are a few reasons to book your tickets now:

  • There’s an entire season of plays just for children and families, including Elephant & Piggie’s “We Are in a Play!”; Mary Poppins; The Starlings Present: Dinosaurs! and Tenali: The Royal Trickster. These plays are perfect for children three years old and up (and their grown-ups, of course).
  • Move over, Nutcracker! This year, your holiday tradition should be Mary Poppins. Back by popular demand, this full broadway version of the show sold out quickly last time. Fun fact: it was the most popular show in NWCT history!
  • The experience doesn’t end with the curtain call. Families can spend up to half an hour after the show meeting the actors and taking photos with the cast while they mill about the historic 100-year-old church the NWCT calls home.

And if that’s not reason enough to take the kids out to a play, don’t forget that you’ll be supporting a local company of makers, puppeteers, designers and collaborators who embody the true spirit of art in the Pacific Northwest.

Now that deserves a standing ovation.
