To enrich the lives of young people and their families by providing professional theatre experiences that educate, entertain and broaden their understanding of the world
The Neighborhood Playhouse is a non-profit theater that produces professional plays for children and their families. We believe that theatre is a powerful tool that engages young audiences with new stories, different ideas and unique characters. By seeing the world through someone else's eyes, even briefly, their empathy is awakened and the world becomes a much more hopeful place. Established in 2002 doing weekly in-class workshops, The Neighborhood Playhouse now hires local professional actors to perform in their shows. TNP also teaches a variety of classes and workshops in Whatcom County Schools and offers drama camps for young actors each summer.

What We Do
Charlotte's Web,   2013
Due to the uncertainty of the future of The Firehouse Performing Arts Center, we have had to cancel this spring's show. We have loved every minute in the Firehouse and have our fingers crossed that it will remain a performance venue for years to come.  Matt and Alona Christman have created a treasure in this community, but the time has come for them to sell it.  If you know of a theatre space that TNP could rent out or a community center that we could convert into a theatre, please let us know!  Otherwise, see you in the summer for camp and in the fall for the next show.
