About Seattle's Classical Theatre.
Seattle Shakespeare Company cover
Mission With the plays of William Shakespeare at our core, Seattle Shakespeare Company engages our audiences, our artists and our community in the universal human experience inherent in classic drama through the vitality, immediacy and intimacy of live performance and dynamic outreach programs.
Description Seattle Shakespeare Company is the Puget Sound region’s year-round, professional, classical theatre. The company’s growing success stems from a deep belief in the power and vibrancy of the time-tested words and ideas of Shakespeare and other classical playwrights along with a commitment to artistic excellence on stage. The results have been provocative performances that both challenge and delight audiences while fostering an appreciation for great stage works.

Our combined programs — which include indoor performances, free outdoor productions, regional tours, educator and youth programs — reach across barriers of income, geography, and education to bring classical theatre to Washington State.
Founded 1991
Products In our indoor home at the Center House Theatre at Seattle Center we produce three plays by Shakespeare, one classic, and one contemporary play based on classic themes or in the classic style. During the summer we produce two free outdoor productions that tour to parks in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties. We also produce a touring show for schools and other venues and have innovative education programs that include workshops, residencies, classes, and summer camps.
