The Seattle Children’s Theatre and Seattle University will present a free public forum on family homelessness at 6:30 p.m. Thursday Oct. 4 in Tacoma. The presentation will be in the Rasmussen Rotunda/Wheelock Student Center on the campus of the University of Puget Sound, 1500 N. Warner St.

The theater group will present two scenes from its upcoming production of “Danny, King of the Basement,” about a boy who is homeless with his mom. Designed for families and kids ages 8 and up, the forum will use theatrical experiences and family-based activity to start conversations about kids living in poverty and what we can do to help.
