Hi-Liners Musical Theatre Serving Burien, Des Moines, Normandy Park, Renton, Kent, Tukwila, and Seattle, WA: Putting People Downstage Center Since 1966! Our productions, classes, workshops and camps are open to students ages 3 to 22. We are a non-profit youth theatre dedicated to providing professional direction to our young cast members to develop their talents with the backdrop of quality sets, costumes and a live orchestra, to give both the performers and the audience a genuine Broadway musical experience.

Jump out of bed on Wednesday and get moving! We know 11am is early for your busy schedule, but it will be worth it!

You will:
  • Develop your stamina by singing while doing aerobic movement
  • Stretch — now is the time to get your splits
  • Work your voice — find that vibrato, learn to riff, find your falsetto/head voice
  • Talk to people who don't share your DNA!
What do you need?

A device with a camera and microphone, and room to move with limited exposure to pets and noise. You should be supervised at all times for safety and tech support. The Zoom meeting details will be posted one day before our sessions on our Facebook page. You can join the Zoom meetings by clicking here.

Burien Annex Closure:

Dear Hi-Liners Musical Theatre families and supporters,

You may have heard that our home for the last ten years, the Burien Annex, will be closing forever on July 31, 2020



While this is potentially devastating to all of the tenants who occupy and share this space, we are all fighting to survive the sudden and unfortunate development. We at the Hi-Liners Musical Theatre have been extremely fortunate to have been embraced by the Highline Performing Arts Center during the two year remodel going on at the High School. We have been holding weekday classes and rehearsals there since September, and we are now working to move some of our performances there as well. Our search for appropriate venues for all of our spring/summer projects continues, so please keep checking here and on our social media for updates.

Thank you to everyone who has reached out to express concern and offer support. People are asking what they can do for us during this challenging time:

FIRST, reassure everyone that we are still open for business and encourage young actors to audition for Disney's Moana JR. April 23 & 30; and Les Misérables School Edition April 25 and May 2. Students as young as 4 can enroll now for spring classes and early registration would be extremely helpful. Summer Camps regisration is open. Register now on our Summer Camps page.

SECOND, no matter what, we will not be the same theatre a year from now. We are determined to not only survive but thrive! Please make a donation to HMT to help ensure that we can withstand this unexpected blow. The hard fact is that one day on the stage at the PAC costs the equivalent of one month at the Annex. The venue changes will be very costly, and these new costs were not figured into the budget for the year, so please consider us in your end of year giving. We have never needed it more! Third, there will be some heavy lifting, literally, so please consider helping us move out of the Annex in January.

FINALLY, the best way to keep the doors open is to buy tickets and support the young artists that are the Hi-Liners.

Thank you,

Hi-Liners Musical Theatre
