Throughout our 2019/20 season, we engaged more than 5,000 people in our engagement events both on-site at Seattle Rep and off-site.

We held over 50 events between September and March, including panel discussions, Actor and Design Talks, off-site events, receptions, fishbowl conversations, Student Matinees, music jam sessions, workshops, and more.

This season, we partnered with more than 25 organizations, educational institutions, music groups, and more. Get to know a few of this season’s local partners:
