Welcome to Whidbey Children’s Theater!

WCT new logo USE THIS ONEWCT Philosophy

We believe that the performing arts have a valuable place in our community, and that through participation in the arts, children will develop and build their self-confidence and self-expression. We also believe that the teamwork, discipline and dedication required by the craft of theater teaches life skills that positively influence the lives of children. We further endeavor to participate cooperatively with the larger community of arts groups wherever possible.

A Big WCT Thank You to all who made our
Choochokam Kid Zone a success!20140712_115422

It is a Whidbey Children’s Theater tradition to helm the Kid Zone at Choochokam Arts Festival each year. From face painting to bubbles, to music to puppetry, this year’s Kid Zone was a great success. We had dozens of happy kids stopping by with their parents, taking part in activities, learning more about WCT, and having a great time.
We also had Northwest Language Academy adding to the fun, and Island Strings bringing their musical gifts to the mix.
A big thank you to Lisa Nakama, for coordinating the entire Kid Zone, and for all our volunteers that made this possible. You are the reason WCT continues to thrive!
THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS!

    • Yesterday, May 6, 2014, was Seattle Foundation Day, where participating non-profits can have all donations “stretched” by the Seattle Foundation. We heard about this day through our granddaughters’ private schools in Seattle. Northwest School received over $8000 extra dollars last year and expects more this year. It is the fourth year of Seattle Foundation Day. When we went to donate yesterday, I looked for Whidbey Childrens’ Theatre and could not find you, but I did find Meerkurk Gardens, Good Cheer, and the Whidbey-Camano Land Trust. We prefer to give locally, so it was easy to make our annual gifts on May 6 instead of the end of the year. Why are you not participating? Just a thought. Susan Young

      • Thank you for your inquiry Susan!
        I checked out the Seattle Foundation, and according to their website,
        “Organizations that would like to have a profile on The Seattle Foundation website must have current 501(c)(3) status and:
        have an office in King County, AND provide at least 50% of their services within King County.
        We are not currently accepting new nonprofit organization profiles.”
        Those conditions do not currently apply to Whidbey Children’s Theater, so it would appear that we are ineligible for those funds. I’m not sure how other South Whidbey organizations became involved; it is possible they were grandfathered in under different conditions.
        I sincerely appreciate your bringing this up, and I will try to find out more! We are always receptive to any sources of funding, so keep that keen eye out! :-)
        All our best
        Michael Morgen
        Marketing Director, WCT

    • I just found out that you are coordinating Children’s Music at Choochokam. We turned in our application by the Apr. 1 deadline, but haven’t heard any word back. Could you please call me at 221-6439. Thanks,
      Linda
