Pre-show DISCUSSION with HOLOCAUST survivor pete metzelaar

Saturday, May 11 at 3:30, before the 4:30 p.m. performance| Free with ticket purchase

Join Seattle Children’s Theatre and the Holocaust Center for Humanity at 3:30 p.m. for a discussion with Holocaust Survivor, Pete Metzlaar. In 1942, the Nazi’s took Pete’s family, leaving behind only him and his mother. After contacting the Dutch Underground, Pete’s mother found Klaas and Roefina Post, who sheltered them for two-and-a-half-years on their small farm in the northern Netherlands. Metzelaar has shared his story with the Holocaust Center for Humanity Speakers Bureau, in schools, universities, synagogues and churches across the Pacific Northwest and now, brings his deeply personal experiences to SCT. Join us at 3:30, an hour before the 4:30 p.m. performance of The Diary of Anne Frank. Admission free with ticket purchase. Learn more about Pete's story here

Post-Show Discussions

Following every performance at SCT, we invite the audience to join us for a post-show conversation about the show. This is a great time for audience members of all ages to ask their burning questions about the performance they just saw, or what it’s like behind the scenes at SCT, or just to make some fun observations and make new friends.
