  • “A wonderful independent company that supports people producing and marketing their own work! From sketch, to improv, to development readings, to scripted shows, you never know what great surprise is happening at the Pocket next!”
  • “The Pocket is one of the most exciting theater spaces in Seattle! They take risks on new work, constantly create opportunities, and value the voices of their community. Many of the shows I've seen first produced at the Pocket have gone on to be expanded and produced at larger theaters, something they would have never been capable of doing otherwise.”
  • “Great people. Cheap drinks. Great comedy. Awesome place.”
  • “It's an intimate, cozy space run by people who are passionate about their craft and their community.”
  • “You really get a personalized experience. There literally are no bad seats in the house! And afterwards the cast hangs out and mingles. It was a great experience for myself and my older kids.”
  • “It's more than just a theater, it's a place where things happen, a place where pipe dreams become a reality, and a place where people come together to learn, share, and thrive.”
