Theater Schmeater


From Rob West, Artistic Director and Moleskinerie reader:

"Since its inception in 1992, Theater Schmeater’s mission has been to
produce great plays simply and foster a love of theater as an art form in
future audiences. We now incorporate more new plays into each season in a
search to find the great plays of our own time, and encourage audiences to
embrace them with the same respect that is given to established greats.
In particular, we are looking to expand our repertoire to include more plays
by women, racial and sexual minorities, and new plays from other

Our work with "future audiences" is also very exciting. Since
the theater’s beginnings it has been our policy to admit any person under the
age of eighteen for free to any Theater Schmeater production. Additionally,
we have produced annual Free Classics in the Park for the past nine years,
through which thousands of families have seen the great plays of
classical literature at no charge in parks throughout Seattle.

Theater is in production year-round, annually presenting 5-6 mainstage shows,
5-6 late night productions and our Free Classic in the Park. Our 2000 season
was attended by over 8,100 people at 183 individual performances. Nearly
1,000 people enjoyed the park show and 336 youth took in a show at no cost to
them. We also produce a handful of special events, including our annual Wine
Auction fundraiser, serving as a venue for the Fringe Festival and co-hosting
Tease-O-Rama, a preview performance of upcoming shows at
