Donor Appreciation Events

All of us at Seattle Shakespeare Company would like to sincerely thank our donors for their generous support!  Our donors are essential to ensuring we can bring professional classical theatre to life for thousands of people across Washington State. To show our appreciation, we invite our donors to take part in exclusive events throughout the year.

Tech-Rehearsal Reception
Light cues! Sound cues! Excitement! We invite you to join us for an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at a working tech rehearsal. Prior to the start of the rehearsal, you’ll enjoy light refreshments in the lobby and mingle with Seattle Shakespeare Company’s  Artistic and Managing Directors. Then, you’ll head into the theatre to meet the Director of the play and observe the tech rehearsal in progress. This benefit is available for donors of $250 and above.

First Rehearsal & Designer Presentations
The room is always filled with excitement at the first read, as artists rejoice in meeting old colleagues and new, and attendees get the first glimpse of the team that will bring the show to life. Before the read-through, you’ll enjoy homemade cookies (baked by John Bradshaw himself!) and plenty of friendly mingling with the artists, other supporters, and Seattle Shakespeare Company board members and staff.  Then, the director of the play will introduce his/her vision for the production and the designers will present their concepts for the lighting, sound, set, and costumes.  Once the presentations are complete, you’re welcome to stay and listen to the first read through of the script for as long as you would like. This benefit is available for donors of $1000 and above.

These events are by invitation only. Please click here to learn more about joining our family of supporters, or contact Heidi McElrath, Development Manager, at 206-733-8228 x268.
