ABOUT SEATTLE PUBLIC THEATER

OUR STORY.

 

For more than three decades, actors, directors, and audiences with a passion for exceptional theater have found a home at Seattle Public Theater on the shores of Green Lake in the historic bathhouse. We were established as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on June 27, 1989; today, we’re building on our past and broadening our reach to make theater that speaks to life in this moment.

With co-artistic directors Kelly Kitchens and Annie Lareau charting our course, and with guidance and support from our board of directors, we have transformed a neighborhood theater to a vital arts center whose productions and programming extend beyond North Seattle and into citywide, national, and global conversations.

At the heart of every organization’s mission, there ought to be a vision of a better world. Here’s ours: We want to create an inclusive community that actively engages with ideas and people. How will we accomplish that? By producing compelling and socially relevant theater to spark conversation and ignite empathy. That’s our mission. That’s what Seattle Public Theater is today. Our future is bright, and it belongs to everyone.
