Youth Theatre Northwest (YTN) continues its 29th school season of exuberant and youthful storytelling with "Really Rosie", a musical tribute to beloved children’s writer Maurice Sendak.
Opening Friday, Nov. 30 through Dec. 16 on the Studio Stage, "Really Rosie" is an inspiring and humorous tale inspires children to believe that no dream is too big.
The plot of the musical production is centered around Rosie and her friends, as they act out their loftiest dreams in a "charming" story by children's author Maurice Sendak — famed for his illustrations in "Where the Wild Things Are" and featuring songs by Carole King.
According to the playbill, Rosie is described as the "sassiest kid on her block of Brooklyn’s Avenue P," with a creative intensity that knows no bounds — and is not quiet or shy about her show-biz fantasies of directing and starring in an Oscar winning movie.
The cast of features some of Youth Theatre’s brightest young talent. The cast of 15 actors are from Mercer Island, Seattle, Bellevue, Redmond, Issaquah and Newcastle.
"Really Rosie" is directed by Matt Giles and comes to life through the creative talents of its dynamic production team; including Scenic Designer Rollin Thomas, Lighting Designer Brian Jackson, Costume Design by Kate Swenson, and Stage Management by Lauren Hochberg.
"Really Rosie" is best for audiences 3-years-old and up, and performs on YTN’s Studio Stage from Nov. 30 – Dec. 16; Thursday and Friday evenings at 7 p.m., Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m.
