    I have a friend who is moving to Seattle soon who is looking for theatre activities/programs for her 10-12 year old. I’d appreciate any information with or without recommendations that I could pass on.

    My daughter took classes at Seattle Children's Theatre.  They have a good program.

    Also, KidsStage at Village Theatre.  One in Issaquah (E of downtown Seattle) and one in Everett (N of downtown Seattle).  I was there in the 80's (now I'm dating myself!) and designed the lights for 5 shows (yes, for those of you reading this who know - in the 'old building'), including one summer kids production of Godspell, which was the precursor to what was to become KidsStage.  Later when I was managing high school theatres in the Seattle area many of my students were involved in the Village Theatre too (much to the chagrin of their own drama teachers who were losing talent to them).  They have programs for kids of all ages, and also tech theatre.  Enjoy!  https://villagetheatre.org/kidstage.php
