The Madrona Childrens Theatre (MCT) in Edmonds provides students at Madrona K-8 School an authentic theatre experience by producing a full-scale musical each spring, complete with a live orchestra. They set a price that allows all K-8 Madrona students to participate and offers scholarships to those who cannot afford the fee.

Over the years, more than 1400 students have gone through the program, with some going on to success in regional theatre groups, television and film.
This year, eighty students and numerous volunteers will present MCT’s 20th Anniversary production, Seussical The Musical**.** A silent auction which, includes donated items from local businesses such as Walnut Street Coffee, Nama’s Candy Store, Wooden Spoon and Glazed and Amazed, will be hosted in the lobby. Proceeds from the auction fund future Madrona Childrens Theatre productions as well as the alumni scholarship program.
