(Re)Imagine Civic Theater

Thursday, October 29

Watch Video

Seattle Rep’s vision is “Theater at the Heart of Public Life,” and an integral part of public life is civic involvement. With the upcoming presidential election, we are each a part of shaping what the future will be. How can theater be integrated into civic life, and civic practice be more integrally a part of theater? What is our vision for the future of our country, and how can theater be a part of that?
