Secondly, I don’t really understand your comments about the lack of boys in the plays. Not many boys are into live theatre. At least in age group. It really is girl dominated. Like in my play, High School Hamlet, it's written so that all the genders in Hamlet are reversed. So there are only two boys in my play. And if you count all the other roles in Hamlet that boys normally would have to fill... it makes more sense not to fight the reality of the situation.
And these plays do have directors. If you liked the show the production should be attributed to them, not to Seattle Children’s Theatre.
I saw the plays too and I don’t think you gave the kids, or the staff, the credit they deserve. They only had four weeks to pull together a one hour play. In the theatre world that’s not very long at all. They do a good job for their age and the amount of time they are given. But, it is still a real production!
