A Message from Stage Struck’s Founder & Managing Director

Laura Drake headshotHello, new and returning families, and welcome to Stage Struck 2023! After three years of pandemic-performing, we are back to normal and looking forward to it!

I have some news to share — this summer will be my final year as owner and director of Stage Struck!

Starting Stage Struck 22 years ago was one of the best decisions I ever made. It has brought joy to thousands of young people in West Seattle and beyond. It has given so much to me personally, my family, and my friends. My daughter and I wish to see its legacy carry on, and we will let you know our plans for its transition at a later date. 

To mark this occasion, we are going out with a bang and offering five camps: Two Best Of Stage Struck revues, a dance camp, and two of our most popular shows. (Please note: We may add additional camps based on registration demand.)

I am looking forward to this celebratory summer, and I thank you for your support over the years. Stage Struck wouldn’t be what it is without YOU.

*Stage Struck’s multiple casting system allows more students’ experiences to perform. 

*At the time of registration, you will have the choice to pay in full or pay in installments ($150 deposit + three additional payments) at no extra cost to you. And if you are in need of a scholarship, please email me at [email protected] by Feb. 15, 2023.

Thank you so much,

Laura Drake
