Cue the Lights for Top-Notch Theatre Performances in Washington State

When the curtain ascends on live theatre performances, venues in Washington challenge and mesmerize their audiences while keeping historical artistic renditions alive. Landmark theatres like the Paramount Theatre in Seattle first opened its doors in 1928. The elegantly refinished 3,000-seat theater showcases live Broadway and jazz performances amid gilded Roaring Twenties décor. The theatre brings in thousands for its ongoing Silent Movie Monday Series, a tribute to early cinematography.

In South Puget Sound, the Washington Center for the Performing Arts is a premier theater venue in Olympia. This large performing arts center was rebuilt in 1980 and stages a variety of entertainment and cultural activities like jazz, comedy and symphony performances. Just down the road in the thriving Olympia Theatre District, Harlequin Productions offers artistic renditions of classics in addition to controversial and modern plays.

For high caliber performances The Village Theatre has locations in both Issaquah and Everett. The theatres create original productions with over the top staging effects focusing on new musicals and classics like Dreamgirls, The Full Monty and Show Boat.

In Spokane, Stage Left Theater uses props and dramatic tricks to insight audiences toward new perspectives on social, historical and political topics. Using drama to engage with audiences, theatre in Washington will provoke and go for the punch line as it seeks to reassemble human experiences throughout the ages.

In 2013 the Lincoln Theatre underwent a "Digital Futures Initiative," where they transitioned to digital projection – no more reel-to-reel.
