In fairy tales, there’s always a “happily ever after.” Right? Not so fast… Bliss takes place in the Deep Dark Forest, and “tears up the rules” of the typical fairy tale. When four foyal sisters sneak out of their castle, they discover all of the fairy tale elements- intoxicating fancy balls, handsome princes… but in a world where they are supposed to play by the rules, a sister’s love will remind them to break the mold and leave expectations behind.
Seattle Children’s Theatre
February 6th through March 15th
Extended by popular demand, this “fierce fairy tale,” is a new twist on an old tale.

You will not be able to “let it go” this February at Disney’s Frozen, presented by Seattle Theatre Group & Broadway.
