About Off Book Productions

Imagination. Leadership. Community.

Our Philosophy

Off Book Productions began 5 years ago as a way to keep a youth musical theatre program in the wedgwood neighborhood. It soon grew into a much bigger program, transforming into what it is today! This studio aims to bring quality and affordable musical theatre opportunities to the northeast region of seattle. Our philosophy is centered around the fact that our students are capable of more than even they know. We strive to help students not only develop their theatre skills, but also work on leadership, communication, collaboration, and responsibility. 

Eia Waltzer - MOHAI Educator of the Year 2023

Cathy - Parent

Eia Waltzer is a phenomenal educator and director.  Our daughter and son have been in multiple productions and learned so much about theater, music, and most of all team work. I am particularly struck by Ms. Waltzer’s ability to connect with our children. She quickly garners their trust earning their investment in her teaching. It is exciting to watch them be engaged - to want to try; and Ms. Waltzer celebrates their efforts regardless of the results.

Leo - Age 9

Musical is so much fun! It’s not just about the actors. On crew, I was with a great team, and we were focused on getting our work done. I think Ms. Waltzer is a great teacher! (And she’s really funny!) -Leo, age 9y


We love Off Book Productions! Ms Waltzer is truly a gem- energetic, passionate about teaching music and theater, and kids love her! My daughter was lucky to work with Ms Waltzer throughout her entire elementary school experience, where she participated in choir and the musical. We were thrilled when she opened her own studio, Off Book Productions, as my daughter can continue with her now in middle school. She is currently taking a Hamilton class which has been so much fun for her, and is excited to sign up for more classes in the future.

Founder & Director


Eia Waltzer

Eia Waltzer has been directing, choreographing, and teaching dance professionally around the Seattle and Los Angeles areas for the past 18 years. During that time she has worked with a wide range of ages, from school children to college students to professionals on developing and refining their skills.  A few recent Directing/Choreography credits include Amélie, Beauty and the Beast, The Music Man, Matilda, The Secret Garden, Hairspray, and Head Over Heels. Though mainly a director/choreographer now, she has also appeared as an actor and teaching artist at various theaters around the area, such as Village Theatre, Seattle Children’s Theatre, and At the Ridge Theatre, among others. All of this has led to her starting her own children’s theatre company, Off Book Productions, that aims to bring high quality theatre opportunities to the Northeast Seattle area.  Eia received a BFA from the University of Washington, as well as a Masters in Teaching, and taught Theatre/music at Wedgwood Elementary for 8 years.
