Campaign Investments

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:

  • Artwork for Artistic Vitality

    Artistic Vitality

    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.

  • Artwork for Sustainability


    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.

  • Artwork for Generous and Inclusive Practices

    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.
