Seattle Theatre Group’s Nights at the Neptune: A People’s Theatre Joint begins this week

NATN_ProgramInfoSeattle Theatre Group (STG), the non-profit arts organization programmers and managers of three historic Seattle theatres (Paramount, Moore and Neptune), is launching Nights at the Neptune: A People’s Theatre Joint, in June. The program, supported by a Seattle Department of Neighborhoods Neighborhood Matching Fund award of $75,000, opens at The Neptune Theatre in Seattle’s University District free of charge to artists and community organizations that have created a performance piece for presentation for a public art event. 

STG’s Nights at the Neptune: A People’s Theatre Joint features eight projects to be presented between June 25 and September 17. All events are FREE!

The selected performances represent art created and performed by some of the city’s most innovative artists and include comedy, new play work, dance theatre, film, cultural music, hip-hop and more. Selected by a group of local artists, arts managers, and community leaders, the Nights at the Neptune performances reflect a broad range of interests and artistic expressions. Giving voice to emerging projects, underserved populations, and exploring issues that include race and social justice, Nights at the Neptune is by the people and for the people!
