Welcome to Nathan Hale Theatre!

The theatre department at Nathan Hale High School in Seattle, Washington exists to provide quality theatre education to Nathan Hale students and professional level performances for the entire Nathan Hale community.


With that goal in mind, Nathan Hale Theatre aims to create an inclusive, fun, creative environment where differences are celebrated and utilized so that we can all say, ‘Hey, we built this together and it’s beautiful!  I belong here.’


Theatre productions and course offerings, all overseen by theatre teacher David Roby, are designed to provide comprehensive knowledge of the dramatic arts; refine acting, production, and technical theatre skills; and provide a wide range of performance and technical opportunities for ALL students.  Please see Mr. Roby's full statement here.


Thespys is a theatre competition held by Washington Thespians with events in performance, technical theatre, and film. Specific events include duo scenes, solo musical performances, playwriting, stage management, and more! Rehearsals are currently being held to help Hale students interested in participating find materials, get feedback, and more.
