"I Was a Rat!" Opens This Weekend at Seattle Children’s Theatre


Seattle Children’s Theatre wraps ups its 2008-09 Mainstage Season with their 101st world premiere, I Was a Rat! by Barbara Field, based on the book by Philip Pullman and directed by SCT Artistic Associate Rita Giomi. I Was a Rat! opens May 1, 2009 in SCT’s Charlotte Martin Theatre and runs through June 7, 2009.

Also from the SCT press release:

In a similar vein as Wicked or The Ugly Stepsister, I Was a Rat! shows us a different perspective on a well-traveled tale. Poor little Roger (even rat-boys need proper names) has nowhere to turn. Luckily, Bob the cobbler and his wife, Joan, have a warm home and welcoming hearts. If only Roger were able to stay out of trouble long enough to enjoy them. He even manages to get thrown in jail for being a dreaded sewer monster! Thank goodness, the Princess arrives in time to straighten the whole mess out, and return Roger to his new home and loving family.

Further details, including showtimes and ticketing information, can be found on the SCT website.
