We are a proud member of the Bainbridge Island and the West Sound Communities.
Ovation! Performing Arts Northwest and the Ovation! Performing Arts Academy are proud members of our local communities. Move your mouse over the photos to learn more about our commitment, involvement and opportunities.
Ovation! mainstage productions are ensemble in orientation. Since our inception in 2003 we have produced 25 mainstage shows.
Our show choirs Glee, Voce and Glee, Jr. give many youth performers opportunities to gain confidence and skills.
Since 2003 Ovation! has presented two or more semi-professional musicals, operas or operettas a year involving hundreds and entertaining thousands.
Ovation! has appeared in the last ten Grand Ole' Fourth Parades on Bainbridge Island and our youth Glee Club has sang the anthem at its start.
Since 2011 Ovation! has annually made merit-based cash awards funded by our board to outstanding seniors.
Ovation! will never stage a musical, opera or operetta with recorded music (unless it was the composer's intent).
Many of Ovation!'s programs are designed for youth participants or for families to experience together.
Ovation!'s Glee Club has participated in three Seattle Children's Hospital events including one at Seattle's Fairmont Hotel.
Our show choirs and Adult Choir carol annually through Winslow, at the Winter Market, treelighting ceremony and more.
Since 2007, Ovation! has co-hosted community caroling with Bainbridge Chorale on a Saturday afernoon in December at Eagle Harbor Congregational Church. The free family event also raises funds and items for Helpline House.
Ovation! involves hundreds of people annually in its programs including many volunteers who work hard behind the scene on costumes, sets, box office and help out as ushers and back stage support. If you'd like to volunteer follow the link to the Contact page and send us a note with some information about your interests.
Ovation! programs teach kids more than performing skills - they teach skills they will keep with them throughout life - poise, confidence, teamwork - skills that will help them give presentations at school, interview for college and for jobs and stand out as an exceptional individual.
