5th Avenue Theatre 1308 Fifth Ave. Seattle, WA 98101 (206) 625-1900 www.5thavenue.org
Since 1926, the magnificent 5th Avenue Theatre has captivated audiences with music, drama and laughter. In the early days, people eagerly lined up for first-class vaudeville shows, featuring top entertainers. The Theatre later transformed itself into a popular movie palace. The 5th fell on hard times in the late 70’s, but fortunately, was saved from a wrecking ball by a visionary group of businesses and community leaders. Following a spectacular $2.6-million renovation, the theatre re-opened in 1980, more beautiful than ever. Today, the 5th Avenue Theatre produces top-quality musical revivals, premieres of bound-for-Broadway shows, and presents touring Broadway musicals. It also hosts a variety of special events, and offers a number of education and outreach programs to school-age children and adults.
