I want to tell you about something truly remarkable. It’s a coming-of-age story about four distinguished individuals, about the harmonic resonance of their ensemble, and about one special theater-in-a-Bathhouse. You’re a part of this story. We’re all growing up together – young adults, theater professionals, parents, the organization and community we call Seattle Public Theater.
The four graduating seniors this year are acting in John Patrick Shanley’s Pulitzer Prize -winning play Doubt: A Parable. These are fiercely intelligent, gutsy, emotionally vibrant actors in a terrifically taut script one reviewer called “the one play that anyone who cares about drama should see.”
But this year’s SPT Senior Show is more than a great performance of an award-winning script. You deserve to see great theater, but you also deserve to celebrate your place in its making. Theater is the way we share our lives, connect with family, make choices, embrace our pasts, and dream our futures. Please join me and our awesome community to celebrate Leo Campbell-Klein, Isabelle Moore, Eden Williams, and Suji Sivarajan, and to help raise the curtain on the next act of their exciting lives.
