The Seattle Preparatory School Theatre 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, 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 Play. 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 is very active throughout the school year promoting theatre arts activities, performances and special events. Any student who is involved with our Theatre Arts program or has a passion for theatre is welcome to join. We have monthly meetings plus sponsor special events.
Students who earn honors in drama may join our Thespian Troupe #7959 as part of the International Thespian Society. Students are eligible to attend and compete at many regional Thespian and theatre events throughout the year. For the past four years our performances at the State Thespian Festival has earned Seattle Prep the "Superior Performance Award".
We have a very active Theatre Arts Booster Group for parents and friends who would like to share their time and talents supporting the program in a variety of ways.
