The Spokane Civic Theatre, is one of the oldest community theatre’s in the country. We were able to attend the Season Reveal party on Friday where they announced the shows that will hit their stages in the 2018-2019 season! Before we get to that, they also recently updated their vision, values, and mission statements. The mission at the Spokane Civic Theatre is “to foster and operate a volunteer live community theatre of high artistic merit.”
We went to the majority of the shows in the 2017 season and we can report they live true to their mission. Each show was better than the last and had us feeling all the feels. Dan’s favorite show of the year was Cactus Flower and mine was a tie between A Christmas Story and Songs for a New World. I am such a sucker for musicals.

If you haven’t had the chance to attend a show at the Spokane Civic Theatre, there are a few things you should know. Starting with the two different stages: The Main Stage “is a proscenium theatre with a seating capacity of 336,” while the Studio theatre “is a small black box theatre seating approximately 85.” The main stage is what you would expect when attending a theatrical performance. The Studio theatre is a very intimate space where you are right in the action! The seats surround the stage so you can witness the action from all sides. You feel as though you are immersed in the show and the actors are right in front of you.
Now that you are informed, it is without further ado that we announce the 2018-2019 Spokane Civic Theater Schedule!
