Please donate and help support our Youth Arts Education programs!

Every child deserves a quality arts education, and the proven benefits include better grades, higher graduation rates, more positive attitudes about school, increased socialization and confidence, and reduced stress and anxiety.

Funds raised help provide 10,000+ local school children with subsidized and free tickets to educational interactive shows throughout the school year. Funds also help support our annual two-week musical theatre summer camp, where children gain acting, dancing and singing experience from professional directors and performers, and get to perform a show on the Admiral Theatre's main stage.


Bremerton's historic Admiral Theatre is a 1942 art deco movie house, renovated in 1997, into Kitsap County's premier live entertainment and events venue. We welcome more than 50,000 patrons annually to 110 diverse performances and special events including concerts, theatre, dance, comedy, movies, and more!

The Admiral Theatre Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization responsible for operating and preserving the theatre, and our mission is to enrich our local communities through arts, cultural education and entertainment.

Our Youth Arts Education programs provide 10,000+ local school kids annually with subsidized and free tickets to attend educational and entertaining shows throughout the school year. Our annual season includes up to 60 professional shows, 50 community and rental events, and an exciting two-week musical theatre Summer Camp for kids.

Thank you in advance for your support of the Admiral Theatre Foundation.
