Our Mission

To bring immediate and accessible theatre to a diverse audience.

What We Do

The Washington Ensemble Theatre 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.

We intend for our theatre to be a physical and creative intersection for community and art in Seattle, and we hope to expand our contemporary audience, by fostering a love of theatre’s humanity, utility, and vitality.
