About Studio East and StoryBook Theater
Studio East Training for the Performing Arts was founded in 1992 to provide theater arts
education for young people on the Eastside. It was founded on the belief that through the
performing arts children can build confidence, and acquire leadership and teamwork skills while
learning discipline, dedication and responsibility. 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 area. Today, Studio East serves over 70,000 people annually with a comprehensive
program of drama classes, theater arts camps, Mainstage productions and live performances for
children from ages 3 through 19. 2012 marked Studio East’s 20 th anniversary season.
Studio East also produces StoryBook Theater, an adult professional touring troupe that introduces
young children to live theater at venues throughout the Puget Sound area. Studio East creates
opportunities for young people to discover and explore the performing arts.
Studio East recently received Kirkland’s CACHET Award, presented by Kirkland Mayor Joan
McBride and the Kirkland Cultural Arts Commission. Studio East, one of two winners, received the
award for its dedication to arts education in Kirkland’s community. CACHET stands for
Collaboration of Arts, Culture, Heritage, Education and Theatre.
