The phrase, 'The Show Must Go On' has been a standard operating procedure for the Warehouse Theatre Company in Yakima for over six decades. However, 2020 has challenged the WTC in ways this local community theatre group has never been challenged before.

When a worldwide pandemic force the shutdown of 'normal' operations and the theatre stage is bare, the seats are empty, the lights dimmed and patrons are homebound, it's time to think outside of the box. That's exactly what the team at WTC has done, by offering a new 'Virtual' Holiday Series you won't want to miss!

These performances will be enjoyed by the whole family. The Warehouse Theatre Company, now more than ever, can use as much community support as possible. Not being able to stage shows and sell tickets, the WTC relies much more on the generosity of its patrons to donate what they can. Click Here to donate.
