Our Mission Statement

Northshore Performing Arts Foundation (NPAF) believes in enriching cultural appreciation and engaging our local community through creative educational programs and opportunities to experience and enjoy the performing arts


  Leslie Foley – President

The performing arts are food for the soul.  The arts can take you around the world, learning about different cultures.  The performing arts are another way for our children to learn and to be able to express themselves.  The performing arts can turn a town into a community where people can meet up for a night of laughter or culture that can then open up discussions.  It energizes me to want to learn

  Ashley Thayer – Treasurer

I’ve always had an appreciation for the performing arts. So, when the opportunity arose to become involved, I eagerly reached out. I’m excited to help support the NPAF.

  Jeanette Marquardt – Board Member

I believe it’s important for us to support the arts for our local community in order for them to enjoy the various entertainment presented in their own backyard instead of traveling outside the area.


Jenn Sorenson I believe the performing arts bring people together and inspires a fun environment to learn about history and culture. I am delighted to the serve the NPAF.

  Sean McClellan Managing Director

Our new Managing Director begins work on August 1.  Sean McClellan is a theatre maker, community arts organizer, and creative placemaker from the Midwest that applies a therapeutic approach to his artistic practice. With over ten years helping to build healthy communities through performance, he is committed to providing the Northshore community with experiences that increase their quality of life through the arts. McClellan recently earned his MFA in Performance Creation from Moravian University in partnership with Touchstone Theatre in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and he holds a BA in Acting from Oakland University in Rochester Hills, Michigan. In his spare time he can be found hiking, making art with others, or cooking up a meal to share with friends.


Ashley Meissner Social Media and Box Office Manager

Community theater is in many ways the pinnacle of human art. It is a place where the sum of lived experience, passion and inspiration live–and where people at once learn and enjoy  more about their world, their community and their own lives. I am thrilled to be part of that dream and support local performing art.


The Northshore Performing Arts Foundation (NPAF) was established by Northshore-area residents (Bothell, Kenmore, Mill Creek, and Woodinville, WA) who were committed to bringing a cultural center to their community, where they could enjoy the performing arts, engage their children in creative educational programs, and experience culturally rich performances from around the globe. Through NPAF’s partnership with the Northshore School District and the City of Bothell, we now have a beautiful state-of-the-art 600 seat theatre on the campus of Bothell High School where artists from around the world and close to home bring live performance to the Northshore community. NPAF is a federal 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation.


Wheelchair Seating is labeled “WC” on the seat map. To help ensure these seats are available for patrons with disabilities, please reserve these seats for them.


In 2002, Northshore voters approved a bond which included funds to build a state-of-the-art 600-seat performance center for Northshore students and the surrounding community. The Northshore Performing Arts Foundation contributed $2.5 Million to provide enhancements to the facility, including a state-of-the art sound system, orchestra pit with lift, and upgraded theatre seats.
