Pippi, Pinocchio and Tom Stoppard: new theater seasons

Spring brings daffodils, rain, moss, more rain and a slew of 2013-14 theater season announcements. (Some have already sprung: Broadway at the Paramount,  Seattle Rep, 5th Avenue, Village Theatre.)

Two more:

Seattle Children’s Theatre promises inspiring stories from familiar characters, an artful dog and the return of a runaway favorite from last season. The season opens with  “Pippi Longstocking: The Family Musical,” based on the sprightly story by Astrid Lindgren (Sept. 26-Nov. 3). Back by popular demand: The interactive play for very young children, “Dot & Ziggy” (Oct. 3-Nov. 24). The holiday play (Nov. 21-Dec. 29) is “James and the Giant Peach” based on the Roald Dahl novel; the season continues with “Pinocchio” (Feb. 6-March 9, 2014), “The Boy at the Edge of Everything” (March 6-April 6) and “Art Dog” (April 10-May 18).  Ticket info here.

Seattle Public Theater offers four plays that “examine and celebrate class, chaos theory … and cupcakes,” according to the company, plus 2 holiday favorites. Starting things off is the West Coast premiere of Nathan Louis Jackson’s “Broke-ology,” directed by Valerie Curtis-Newton (Sept. 26-Oct. 20). The holidays bring the 13th annual staging of “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” as well as “The Santaland Diaries” (both Dec. 6-24). Other shows: Lisa Dillman’s “American Wee-Pie” (Jan. 24-Feb. 16, 2014); the 2013 Steinberg Award finalist “Gidion’s Knot,” by Johnna Adams (March 26-April 20); and Tom Stoppard’s “Arcadia” (May 16-June 8).
