New artist commissions. Renovations to our Bagley Wright Theater and public spaces.
A more user-friendly website. Expanded Pay What You Choose programming.
Extraordinary productions on stage.
These are just some of the opportunities funded through
Act I of the Campaign for Seattle Rep over the past three years.
Launched in 2019, Act I is a $20.2M initiative that seeks to advance Seattle Rep’s vision of theater at the heart of public life by investing in our three core values:
We will push the growth edge of our artistic excellence and potential by producing theater at the highest level and bringing new works and new voices to the stage.
We will secure and expand our role as a civic and artistic leader, regionally and nationally, for generations to come by strengthening our financial model to generate steady income year-to-year for operations and future planning.
Generous and Inclusive Practices
We will strengthen our commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusion by ensuring access to meaningful art and opportunity that represents and reflects our full community.
Over the next three years, this initiative will provide essential resources to further invest in theater makers through commissioning and development work, streamline and modernize our lobby, upgrade behind-the-scenes theater technology, and ensure Seattle Rep can continue to create amazing art on stage.

Thank You to Our Act I Supporters
None of this work would be possible without the belief and partnership of Seattle Rep’s donor family. We are deeply grateful to our early Act I supporters, whose commitments now total more than $10 million. Their extraordinary generosity is helping Seattle Rep achieve our vision.
