“Back to school” will look a little different this year, and so will Seattle Rep’s youth programming. With in-school instruction and our Student Matinees postponed until public health improves, we’re adapting to the times and moving our classes online to continue supporting students and teachers as they return to the virtual classroom. You can make it possible for Seattle Rep to offer youth programming at low or no cost, and help us carry this important work forward in a time when students need enriching arts opportunities more than ever.

While we all stay home and stay healthy, online programs like our youth engagement workshops are essential for young people whose isolation and need for artistic expression and creative development grow more critical every day. They are also useful for teachers as they retool their curriculum to meet student needs in a changing environment. With school budgets already stretched thin by pandemic-related expenses, we hope you’ll make a gift to help Seattle Rep offer our online classes to teachers and students on a free or sliding-scale basis.



With your donation, you can give students an artistic outlet for everything they are going through right now, and a feeling of normalcy in a wildly abnormal time.
