A Brief History


In 1976 two islanders, Laurel Watts and Tish Lopez, felt there was a need for community theatre on Vashon. Drama Dock was soon born. The purpose of the organization was, and still is, to provide education and experience in theatre art while offering rich entertainment. The first production was Neil Simon’s “Plaza Suite” , which was an immediate success. Since that time Drama Dock has staged well over one hundred productions including twenty eight plus musicals. Drama Dock remains the major theatre company on the island.
