2018–19 Season

Two people acting out a play, both looking happy and dreamily towards something far away

The Theatre Department at Seattle Pacific has been producing stellar plays for more than a half-century. Typically, we offer an Autumn Quarter mainstage production, a Winter Quarter mainstage production, student-directed one-act plays, a Spring Quarter mainstage production, and a Spring Quarter studio production each year. We've been producing seasons of theatre since 1960, and the quality has never been better.
