SPU University Theatre


• Educational Goals • 

To vitally and constructively contribute to the intellectual discussion, spiritual development, and community awareness of the Seattle Pacific University constituencies. 

To serve as a theatre production laboratory, providing controlled experience for the performance and technical training of Theatre majors and other interested and qualified persons, such training requiring an exposure to a wide variety of theatrical styles and an acceptance of a reasonable balance of artistic risk. 

To contribute to the development of artistic sensibility and theatrical sophistication within the various Seattle Pacific constituencies.

To model and advance the cause of a Christian perspective of theatrical art which comments on the human experience as spiritual journey,
reflects the goodness of creation, approves willful moral ascendancy,
and embraces other-centered community.
