Mission & Board

Our Mission

Through collaborative artistic leadership, Washington Ensemble Theatre fearlessly creates audacious stories for adventurous Seattle audiences.

What We Do

WET is committed to maintaining an environment wherein our members, as well as artists from our community, are challenged to grow through our work as an ensemble.
