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.

This fun and family-friendly event will be a hit with kids of EVERY age!
Begin by making a mask or costume, add some spooky face-painting, and sample some monster fingers or witch’s brew at Creaky MacPhee’s Candy Bar! Then craft your very own magic wand before embarking on a guided trail walk where you will interact with characters of all kinds to complete your Halloween Quest!

  • Mssrs. Hellfoil & Grunt Masks & Costume Boo-tique – Mask-making and costume accessories, with items from WCT’s own costume shop!
  • Splatter & Gak’s Face Painting – choose from a selection of ghoulish and ghastly designs to get into the real spirit of the evening!
  • Willoughby’s Wand Shop – Kids make their own wand, test it, learn a spell from Madame Willoughby and then take it on their trail walk with them!
  • Trail Walk – A suitably spooky guided walk through a forest trail set with interactive vignettes designed to help weave the quest-story that visitors with solve along the way!

This carnival style event raises valuable funds to support the Rhianna Hobbs Memorial Scholarship Fund, keeping the theater doors open to all students regardless of their financial situation.

What a splash we made at the Fair!

Thank you so much to all that made our Dunk Tank at the Island Area Fair a resounding success! We partnered with our friends at Ryan’s House to have a great time all four days!
Both organizations spread awareness of our programs, and raised important funds, so thank you to everyone that came threw a ball or volunteered to get dunked! We’ll be there again next year :-)


Call WCT’s Main Office (221-8707) or email contact.wct@gmail.com
with any questions or to inquire about volunteering.

    • 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

    • 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,

    • Hi Khali,
      Our ticket prices are: Adults $15, Seniors $12, Kids $8. We also sometimes have a Family Night during the run of most shows (usually the second Saturday) when all tickets are $8.
      Tickets will go up for sale a few weeks before the show opens, so keep an eye out in late October!
      Thank you :-)
