The Seattle Preparatory School Theatre Program is designed to enable students to discover their creative abilities while inspiring them to strive for artistic excellence. Students are given a wide variety of opportunities in the performance and production of live theatre. Our mission strives to achieve the following goals:
- To produce the highest quality performances we are capable of creating
- To challenge ourselves with productions that stretch our talents and abilities
- To encourage students to attain a mastery of the theatre arts
- To develop a life long appreciation for and involvement with theatre
- To develop integrity, positive attitude and rigorous work ethic in our company
Students are involved in all aspects of creating theatre both on stage and behind the scenes as performers, directors, designers, builders and crew-members. Each year we produce three major productions: a fall Play, a winter Musical and our Festival of One Acts that performs during the Seattle Prep Arts Week in the spring. Students are selected through an audition process for performing and an interview process for directing or being part of the production crew.
Our Drama Club and Thespian Troupe #7959 is very active throughout the school year promoting drama activities including performances and special events. Our Thespian Troupe was established in 2013 and currently has 22 students who have earned the honor to be inducted into the International Thespian Society. We also have an active Drama Boosters group for parents who would like to volunteer. Information can be found here

Seattle Prep Drama sails the high seas as we present the musical comedy, Anything Goes.
A shining example of classic musical theatre with epic tap dancing, a madcap book and a wonderfully unexpected and romantic happy ending, the unforgettable Cole Porter score includes “De-Lovely,” “I Get a Kick Out of You,” “All Through the Night” and, of course, the great title song, “Anything Goes.” Set aboard the S.S. American, the singing-dancing ocean liner overflows with wealth, sailors, stowaways, gangsters, Wall Street brokers and the most irresistible of nightclub singers and evangelists, the lovable Reno Sweeney.
Join our award-winning drama program and the cast of 44 Seattle Prep students as we bring to life the classical 1930’s musical, Anything Goes. The performances run February 24-March 5, 2017.
