Welcome to our official website: a magical place to connect with us, learn about community theater, and make some friends along the way!

Pacific Northwest Theater is a non-profit, educational, community theater company based in Olympia, Washington


Pacific Northwest Theater believes that participating in theatre helps kids to learn, grow, and develop, and we understand that many kids who would benefit from theatre the most are those whose families are least able to afford the admission fees for our summer programs. Therefore, we encourage families to reach out to us to ask for Scholarships, and we encourage individuals and businesses to donate funds to cover Scholarships for others.

Theater for Everyone
