Creative Theatre Experience (CTE) has offered unique opportunities to students in first grade through 12th grade since 1981. Now planning its 37th year, CTE is the longest-running youth summer theater program in the Olympia area. Programs and performances are held each summer at Olympia High School.
Artistic director Kathy Dorgan is joined every year by director Jason Haws and Paul Purvine, as well as a talented staff and summer interns for a quality artistic learning experience that builds a complete experience, teaching skills for use both on and off the stage.
Over 200 children are part of the CTE program in Olympia every summer.
UPDATED Aug. 25, 2016:
CTE is now offering early enrollment for its summer 2017 offerings, but only through the last day of August. The showcase production next year will be The Lion King, with a “spotlight” production of She Kills Monsters. The dates for CTE 2017 are June 26 to Aug. 5.
