After thoughtful reflection and in alignment with state and local public health recommendations, we have made the difficult decision to cancel Seattle Rep’s annual Gala, Revel + Raise, on Saturday, April 4, as well as all performances and events in the interim.
Our first priority is the well-being of our community and cancelling our event is the best thing we can do to keep you safe.
At the same time, we know that there is nothing like coming together to share the joy and excitement of supporting an organization that we all love—and we know you share our disappointment in missing the opportunity to celebrate with Seattle Rep this spring.
But we can still come together as a community to make a meaningful impact. Seattle Rep’s annual Gala is our single largest fundraiser, and provides essential funding for the mainstage productions and community engagement programs that serve 150,000 people each year. As the theater faces weeks or possibly months of lost ticket revenue—which accounts for about half of our annual budget—your philanthropic support is more critical now than it has ever been.
Please consider making a gift today to help Seattle Rep’s community of artists, participants, and patrons emerge from this challenging time stronger than ever. With your support, together we will fulfill Seattle Rep’s vision of putting theater at the heart of public life, and work toward a brighter day when we can welcome the public back through our doors.
