Centerstage Presents the World Premiere of SQUATCH! THE MUSICAL
Centerstage Theatre proudly presents the world premiere of Squatch! The Musical by Katherine Jett. When sightings of Sasquatch stir up a local town, a group of 8-11 year old aspiring crypto-zoologists, scientists, and cynics resolve to find the elusive creature. Embarking on a journey of discovery, they learn things aren't always as they appear, and even the smallest effort can have a lasting impact on the world around us. SQUATCH! The Musical is like the Goonies...plus Sandlot...plus song and dance. It's a hilarious adventure for the whole family.
Squatch! The Musical is written by local actor and playwright, Katherine Jett. Jett has most recently been seen at Centerstage Theatre in "For All That" and "Sleeping Beauty." Squatch! The Musical is directed by Sara Porkalob. While this is Sara Porkalob's first show at Centerstage Theatre, she is an award winning solo performer, director, and arts activist recently recognized on City Art's 2017 Future List and is currently serving as Intiman Theatre's 2017 Co-Curator.
The music is composed and directed by Adam Quillian. Adam is an active composer, playwright, and musical director in the Greater Seattle arts community. The cast of Squatch! The Musical includes Randall Carpenter, Varsha Raghavan, Sam Turner, Corinne Magin, Warren Haney, Matt De La Cruz, David Huntington-Klein, Annelih Hamilton, and Katya Landau.
