Scratch is a periodic open forum for students to experiment with performance for an audience of their peers.

Scratch is open to students in any major, featuring short works (2-5 minutes) in any performance-based artistic discipline including, but not limited to, theatre, improv, dance/movement, poetry reading, spoken word, stand-up comedy, musical theatre, and performance art. Performances combine to create a dynamic and experimental event driven entirely by students; Scratch provides a much-needed, safe venue for burgeoning student artists to find their voices, test ideas, and become entrepreneurs of their own work.

Applications can be found in the Fine Arts Building Main Office.

For more information about performance dates please visit the ARTS at Seattle U Calendar of Events.
