About us:
Snoqualmie Falls Forest Theater is a truly unique symbiosis between nature and musical theater. The outdoor family-oriented theater venue is surrounded by 95 undeveloped acres of woods, meadows and streams, with a picturesque view of Snoqualmie Falls within a five minute walk of the parking area. Our land provides the setting and sustainment for our theater productions, while our theater productions provide funding for stewardship and maintenance of the land, providing a refuge for wildlife displaced by urban development, as well as providing outdoor recreational opportunities for members and guests. Many of our cast members camp at the theater in our campground, making for a fun and memorable experience for the cast and crew!
