Getting To Know Centerstage Theatre

Our Mission

Believing that theatre is an agent of challenge, change, and education, Centerstage Theatre presents and produces quality performances to enhance the lives of people and communities in Western Washington.

Our Vision

Centerstage Theatre aspires to be a leading theatre in the Puget Sound region, with a reputation for innovative, accomplished productions of popular work and for new work with the widest possible audience appeal. 


Sharon and Norm Munsey founded Centerstage in 1977. The company performed at various
locations, including the Group Health Facility, until the mid 1980's. It was re-born
in 1998 with the construction of the Knutzen Family Theatre still under the leadership
of Sharon and Norm Munsey. The company also produced smaller cast plays in a 48-seat
studio facility at the Spectrum Business Park. In February 2004, Alan Bryce replaced
the retiring Munseys. Centerstage created a strategic plan later that year, re-vamped
its artistic policy, upgraded its corporate sponsorship programs and made many moves
to firm up its financial status, which included dropping classes from its operation.
In 2006, Centerstage produced 4 major shows at the Knutzen Family Theatre, and five
in 2007. In the last two years Centerstage has won Best Season, Best New Play, Best
Actress, Best Actor in a comedy or musical, Best Director of a comedy or musical
from the Tacoma Newspapers.
