Pathway to Institute

Pathway to Institute

Pathway to Institute is an auditioned, school-year musical theatre training program open to grades 5–12 in Issaquah and grades 4–8 in Everett. It is designed to give students the foundational training needed to thrive in the Institute program while also creating an inclusive and focused community. Pathway students enroll for 24 weeks  of acting, singing, and dance.

  • Issaquah Pathway classes meet September – May on Mondays from 4:30-8:30PM (grades 5–6) or Thursdays from 4:00–8:45 pm (grades 7–12).
  • Everett Pathway classes meet September – May on Wednesdays from 4:30–8:30PM (grades 4–8).
Auditions and Placement

All students who audition for the Institute are also considered for the Pathway program, which is geared toward students newer to theatrical training or new to one or more foundational areas of study. We take time to give individual attention and focus to each student’s growth during the year, enabling students to track toward placement in the Institute.
