In honor of this, our 9th season, we are excited to be moving into our very own place this fall in the Swantown Building (formerly Capital Playhouse) in downtown Olympia. We will continue to build on our mission: to offer accessible children’s theater and programs that entertain and educate while stimulating dialogue and personal growth for young people, their families and the wider community.  Show your support donating and by signing up to volunteer at one of our summer work and/or moving parties.  Contact us at: to get involved!
