Baaack by popular demand is the interactive and highly entertaining musical, “The Green Sheep.”

Seattle Children’s Theatre is starting right out of the pen with this sure-fire hit as its first show of the new main stage season.

“The Green Sheep” has it all for the toddler set: bouncy music, action and puppets.

The story about a search for the elusive green sheep is based on the book by Mem Fox and Judy Horacek. The show is fast-paced and lively, with the audience sitting inside a sheep’s pen while the action is going on all around them outside the fence.

Throughout the play the audience is introduced to all kinds of sheep such as the near sheep and the far sheep, the moon sheep and the star sheep. But the green sheep remains hidden — until the end.

Returning to “Green Sheep” to add their expert touch are two veterans of the play, stage manager Sarah S. Mixson, who also performs with the ensemble, and actor Morgan Rowe, said SCT marketing manager Jim Jewell.

“The Green Sheep” opens at 10 a.m. Wednesday at Charlotte Martin Theatre, 201 Thomas St., Seattle. Shows are 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. through Sept. 12.

There are also two Spanish-language performances at 11:30 a.m. Aug. 27 and 28 and an ASL-interpreted performance at 11:30 a.m. Oct. 12.

Tickets are $16. Call 206-441-3322 or go to www.sct.org.

“The Green Sheep” is recommended for ages 1 through 4.
