Doctor De Soto

Hertz Stage
World Premiere
A world premiere stage adaptation of the beloved, Newberry Award-winning picture book DOCTOR DE SOTO.  

By Idris Goodwin
Based on the book by William Steig
Produced in partnership with Seattle Children’s Theatre

Award-winning playwright Idris Goodwin brings William Steig's tale of wit, wisdom, and whimsy to the stage with an eye-popping blend of live-action, puppetry, music, and rhyme. Despite the sign outside stating that they do not treat predators, Doctor De Soto and Mrs. De Soto take pity on a suffering fox with a rotten tooth. But once he opens his jaws and they must step inside, they begin to rethink their decision. Full of excitement and laughter, this modern-day fable proves that even the smallest creatures can make a big difference with kindness and a little quick thinking.
