Printer’s Devil Theater (PDT) is a company of theater artists dedicated to creating, developing, and producing new work that meets three criteria: smart, original, and local. Founded in 1995, here in Seattle, we work to produce innovative work combining bold acting, whip-smart writing, and a commitment to simple, but well conceived production values. Our work has consistently included new and genre-diverse material, driven by a strong sense of intelligence and passion, and no small measure of humor.
We are happy to announce that our most recent production, Animal Cruelty, has been nominated in the categories of Outstanding New Play and Outstanding Lighting Design (Patti West) by The Gregory Awards, presented by Theatre Puget Sound.

Honestly, could you ask for anything more out of a night of theater? -- The Stranger
It’s a good thing these actors are brought into full-view, because all four of them are scintillating, and watching them can at times be even more joyful than watching the puppets. -- Drama in the Hood
The show may not be...fit for the family, but this talented group of actors will have you rooting for a cast of critters unparalleled in their comedic talent -- The Seattle Spectator
Every Sgt. Rigsby & His Amazing Silhouettes performance offers a unique theater experience. Those 2-D puppets have 3-D stories, emotions, and a fair amount of sex. Front and center is the big carnival wagon style shadow screen where the puppet action takes place. Off to the side is a table where the actors, who provide voices and Foley sound effects, sit in full view of the audience.
