Anything is Possible Theatre is dedicated to inspiring lifelong interest in theatre by engaging new audiences through dynamic and original productions.

In August 2015, we held our first Anything Possible Theatre Camp - two week-long sessions for kids 6 to 12. It was an exciting, inspirational, and educational experience for all involved. AIP and Rainier Arts Center will offer this exceptional south Seattle camp experience for the third year in summer 2017!

Our 2014 production, "Robin Hood: An Old Tale for Modern Times", was a smashing success, raising funds for local community organizations and presenting a fresh, relevant telling of the classic story of social justice and equity.

In 2013 we toured our children’s science musical “How Things Work!” to southend Seattle public schools--conveying the wonders of science and the need for sustainability.

In 2009 “It’s a Whatchamadoozie with a Whaddayacallit With a Thingamajigit on Top!” told a story about the power of curiousity to overcome fear. This show, like "Something Big", was produced at the Rainier Valley Cultural Center to warm and enthusiastic responses.

In 2007 we brought to life "Something Big Has Been Here", a musical based on the poems of Jack Prelutsky, our nation's first children's poet laureate.
