Tacoma Youth Theatre is Broadway Bound!

Tacoma Youth Theatre is creating a new theatre facility at 924 Broadway, right in the heart of Tacoma's Theatre District. Starting this fall, students will experience all this innovative space has to offer: a fully functioning in-the-round “black box” performance space with ample seating, a separate rehearsal studio, dressing rooms, costume rooms, prop rooms – all designed to provide a hands-on learning environment where young artists can discover the joy, success, and impact of theatre for themselves.

Tacoma Youth Theatre, co-founded by Maggie Knott and Scott Campbell, began in… Read More

Playhouse kills it with ‘Arsenic’

Lakewood Playhouse’s “Arsenic and Old Lace” seems to be the odd-play-out of sorts considering that the theater is marking its diamond anniversary with this comedic season opener.

The rest of its season includes the all-but guaranteed “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” and “Monty Python’s SPAMALOT,” after all.
