What’s a Groundling? At Shakespeare’s theatre, Groundlings were the audience members who paid a penny to stand in the open air yard to see the show. At Seattle Shakespeare Company, Groundlings pay a bit more than a penny to see the show, but they love theatre just as much. We won’t make you stand, but Groundlings have to take whatever seat is available when they come to see the show.
