Seattle Prep's Drama Program is designed to enable students to discover their creative abilities while inspiring them to strive for artistic excellence. Our award-winning Theatre Program gives students 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, short-play directors, designers, builders and crew-members. Each year we produce three productions including our Student-Directed Festival of Shorts. Students are selected through an audition process for performing and an interview process for directing or being part of the technical and production crew.
Prep offers a variety of classes in acting and the performing arts that student may take as part of their arts curriculum. The classes build skills in individual and group performances, audition techniques, playwriting, character development, acting with the voice, and movement techniques. All the classes are taught by our Theatre Director, Adam Othman.
