Now in its fourth year, the popular collaboration between Seattle Opera and SPT's Youth Program continues with this manga-style production of THE MIKADO. One of Gilbert & Sullivan's most accomplished and entertaining works, the story is set in the fictional Japanese town of Titipu, in which flirting is a capital offense. The Mikado tells the story of a wandering minstrel who falls in love with the fair Yum-Yum, who just so happens to be engaged to the town's newly appointed Lord High Executioner. Stage-directed by SPT Artistic Associate Kelly Kitchens (SPT's Arcadia and The Understudy) with Musical Direction by Seattle Opera Youth Program Manager, Barbara Jamison, this colorful re-imagining of this surprisingly modern tale of star-crossed lovers updates the traditional silk kimonos of ancient Japan with vibrant Harajuku Tokyo street fashion, and their wild, punky mix of colors and styles.

Theatre9/12 proudly presents the Northwest premiere of Theresa Rebeck's provocative new comedy Seminar, where writing becomes a contact sport. Produced on Broadway in 2011-12, this fast, funny, biting comedy is "a fevered melange of envy, insecurity and intramural sexual desire." (ChicagoTribune) In a master class four aspiring, fiercely competitive fiction writers, like "feral cats in heat," are led by an aging, international literary figure. This once celebrated novelist's unorthodox instruction confounds and challenges the gobbledygook often disguised as literary genius. Amidst the sometimes vicious repartee in this cauldron of terror, just how much will the frustratingly unsung talents endure from a jaded old pro to realize their publishing dreams.
Supraliminal (adj. above the threshold of consciousness) is a world premier play commissioned by Seattle Immersive Theatre, revolving around multiple existing locations. The show will start in an actual college lecture hall where the audience/class will begin a Parapsychology Integrated Studies course taught by Prof. Marcus Cadman, Prof. Elizabeth Jensen and well-known Northwest psychic Miles Zaniel. The class/audience will be transported (via school bus) to the Georgetown Steam Plant for the field investigation element of the course. There, they will witness an ongoing investigation of paranormal and psychic phenomena.
This summer SPT's Youth Program is taking The Taming of the Shrew to the high seas – prepare for a wild voyage through one of Shakespeare's earliest and most controversial comedies, about a strong-willed couple hell-bent on confusing and outwitting each other right up to the play's equivocal conclusion. There are many exciting questions to ask with this screwball comedy and this production seeks to answer them with plenty of slapstick, gender bending…and pirates!
Orgon's household is under the influence of a seductive swindler named Tartuffe. This cunning con man, masquerading as a holy man, plans to dupe the gullible Orgon out of his fortune, his daughter, and his reputation. The pious grifter can do no wrong in his host's eyes, yet everyone else in the household smells a rat. Just when the jig is up, Tartuffe ups the stakes and the charm. Moliere's laugh-out-loud funny tale of deception, hypocrisy, and power shish-kabobs false morality.
Love lost. Love found. Love turned upside down. Shakespeare's sparkling comedy turns desire on its ear when shipwrecked twins Viola and Sebastian roam Illyria stirring up attraction and distraction wherever they go. Orsino loves Olivia, but she pays him no mind. Olivia loves Viola, whom she's mistaken for a boy. Viola loves Orsino, and he has no idea she's a girl. Toby Belch, Andrew, Feste and Maria love playing pranks on Malvolio who is in love with love (and himself). Strange romance gives way to a miracle in this rollicking comedy of misplaced longing.
A lonely tree at the junction of a dirt road, on a day indistinguishable from any other day, two vagabond souls anxiously wait for their appointed meeting. They bicker, wheedle, tease, ponder, wonder and hold fast to anything that will give them a cause to live until the next day. Samuel Beckett introduced us to Vladimir and Estragon when the world lived in fear of nuclear annihilation. Since then these two clowns, as well as their fellow travelers Pozzo and Lucky, have helped us take one falteringly dangerous step after another into an unknown future.
