Mother Courage will be rolling her canteen wagon into the Center House Theatre soon and we’ve got a great cast for this amazing play with music.

In the roles of Mother Courage’s children are Trick Danneker (Othello) as Eilif, Spencer Hamp (The Comedy of Errors) as Swiss Cheese, and Chesa Greene as Kattrin.

Returning Seattle Shakespeare Company artists include Jim Gall (Othello), Tim Gouran (Measure for Measure), Bill Johns (Tartuffe), Chad Kelderman (Wittenberg), and Jason Marr (The Two Gentlemen of Verona). Joining the company for the first time are Robert Bergin and Alyssa Keene.

Jeff Steitzer, who staged our 2012 production of Pygmalion will direct Mother Courage and Her Children. The creative team includes Craig Wollam (set design), Doris Black (costume design), and Rick Paulsen (lighting design).

Mother Courage and Her Children runs October 27 through November 22 in the Center Theatre at Seattle Center.
