“whistle down the wind”

A show of note around the Puget Sound is 5th Avenue Theatre’s staging of the U.S. premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Whistle Down the Wind.”

The show is an uplifting musical about a young Louisiana girl who finds a mysterious stranger and hides him from the townspeople, who are determined to find the escaped felon. It’s your typical girl looks for savior, girl finds savior, girl ends up being the savior.

[5th Avenue Theatre, through Dec. 2, 7:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wednesday, 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, 1:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Sunday, $20-$77, 1308 Fifth Ave., Seattle, 206.625.1900]


Federal Way’s Centerstage Theatre is at it again. The theater is staging a comedic English pantomime of “Cinderella” that is bound to become at least a short lived legend in the South Sound. The theater’s artistic director, Alan Bryce, is the miracle worker of South Sound theater.

[Knutzen Family Theater, through Dec. 23, 8 p.m. Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday, $8-$25, 3200 S.W. Dash Point Road, Federal Way, 253.661.1444,]

“sleeping beauty”

A relatively “true” adaptation of “Sleeping Beauty” is making young girls cheer and young lads swing their baseball bats like they were swords thanks to Tacoma Little Theatre. TLT is staging a musical version of the classic.

[Tacoma Little Theatre, through Dec. 2, 8 p.m. Friday-Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday, 210 N. I St., Tacoma, 253.272.2281,]
