From ticket sales to contributions, Seattle Rep relies on our community’s participation and collective generosity to make extraordinary art possible. As we seek to put theater back on stage in the year ahead, we need your help more than ever to revitalize, rebuild, and reimagine our vision of Theater at the Heart of Public Life.

Returning to production in a post-pandemic world will require an above-and-beyond infusion of resources. We’ve set a goal of raising $12.5M in new season subscriptions, ticket sales, grants, and cash contributions from our community by the end of 2021 to bring art back to Seattle Rep’s stages.


Your investment will allow us to:

Set the stage for live theater

Your gift will help Seattle Rep transition back to full-scale operations following the pandemic, ensuring we have the resources and staff to create astonishing art on stage at the level that audiences and artists have come to expect, even as we anticipate smaller audiences and additional health and safety costs. 

  • Invest in streaming technology

    Seattle Rep is investing in streaming technology to expand access to the extraordinary art on our stages. With these new technical capabilities, we will also be able to expand our Youth Engagement programs’ reach to a greater audience and allow our community greater access to our Arts Engagement programming. 

  • Deepen our EDI commitment

    We are answering the call by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) theater practitioners locally and nationwide to make substantial and long-lasting changes to our organizational culture and industry. We continue our commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) work by implementing anti-racist practices, and investing in changes to create more equitable working conditions for BIPOC staff and artists.

  • Improve our facilities

    Seattle Rep is investing in creating a more welcoming experience at the theater with more comfortable and accessible seating, renovated restrooms, and updates to improve patron flow in our main entrance and lobby. To fully realize our vision of Theater at the Heart of Public Life, our spaces must be equipped and ready for our community to gather together safely, with equity and access at the forefront.

Every dollar you invest makes a difference.

From contracting artists to rehiring Patron Services staff and preparing our space for new health protocols, our behind-the-scenes work must happen far in advance to get shows back on stage. Seattle Rep needs your participation now to ensure our strong return to production in the year ahead.

Please help us reach our Heart Fund goal by making a gift today, purchasing tickets to our upcoming virtual events, or being the first to subscribe to our season when we announce later this spring. 

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for being there for Seattle Rep during this time. We look forward to revitalizing, rebuilding, and reimagining Seattle Rep, all while continuing to center theater at the heart of public life.
