About Us


Studio East Training for the Performing Arts is proud to be a 501(c)3 nonprofit providing theater arts education and opportunities for children in Kirkland, WA and surrounding communities.

Starting with one theater program for teens in 1992, Studio East has become one of the largest children’s theater training programs in the Seattle Metro area. Today, between the Studio’s camps and classes and its professional, adult touring arm, StoryBook Theater, Studio East serves over 70,000 people annually.

Studio East has a comprehensive program of drama classes, theater arts summer camps, and Mainstage productions for children from ages 4 through 19. The organization also offers ArtReach, (a 6 week, after-school residency program), outreach classes, and homeschooling options. Part of Studio East’s mission includes a scholarship program to help keep the arts accessible to theater students of all financial backgrounds.

Studio East also produces StoryBook Theater, an adult professional touring troupe with performances across the Puget Sound Region. StoryBook Theater is often a child’s first experience with live theater. You can learn more about StoryBook Theater by visiting

Our Mission

Studio East creates opportunities for young people to discover and explore the performing arts.

Our Philosophy

Studio East is founded on the belief that the performing arts can make a difference in the lives of our children. Children who learn and practice the discipline, dedication, and teamwork required by the craft of theater develop skills that will be valuable assets throughout their lives, no matter what career they choose to pursue.
