At Seattle Shakespeare Company, we believe that stories unite us.
Stories—and especially timeless stories, like those of Shakespeare, Euripides, Shaw, and others— communicate in ways that conversations can’t. They touch our humanity deeply. Through engaging productions of classical plays and interactive education programs, we invite audiences of all ages to explore the richness of Shakespeare’s text and draw parallels to today’s world.
Our work is made possible by the generous support of our patrons, donors, and sponsors, as we operate on roughly 40% earned and 60% contributed revenues. Your contributions to Seattle Shakespeare Company help us impact the lives of more than 60,000 people annually and enhance the health and vibrancy of our community. Thank you!
