  • “Off The Top is my favorite show in the city. It started as a half-baked idea and is now a weekly recurring show with a consistent audience base and a community around it that hangs out every week! The barrier to creating something cool is virtually eliminated with the help of this theater. This show would not have been possible without The Pocket and its wonderful staff.”

  • It is that rare place that welcomes performers with open arms and allows them creative freedom to explore while also making sure they are paid for their work. As a theatre artist I always feel 100% supported whenever I step onstage, and as a member of the Seattle theatre community I’m proud to consider The Pocket my home.

  • “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.”
