It’s time to celebrate our 50th Anniversary, and we want you to be a part of it! So what better way to celebrate than by giving away Theatre For Life? Complete a scavenger hunt for the chance to win 2 lifelong subscriptions to Seattle Rep!
Theatre for Life: A Theatrical Scavenger Hunt
Saturday, August 18, 2012, 12 p.m.
Scavenger Hunt & Block Party all afternoon…
Food Trucks! Drinks! Music! Games! Prizes!
How do I win?
Arrive at Seattle Rep at noon and enter to compete in our scavenger hunt to win Theatre For Life. You’ll be given a booklet that will guide you to eight show-specific locations at Seattle Center. At each booth, you’ll perform a task related to a play in our 50th Anniversary season and receive a stamp after completing the challenge. After you’ve visited all eight stations, you’ll return to Seattle Rep and be entered to win the grand prize.
What else is happening that day besides the scavenger hunt?
We’re throwing a block party! You know…food trucks, drinks, music, games. The whole shebang. It’s a time to hang out with fellow theatre lovers, enjoy the Seattle summer, and learn more about our upcoming shows.
The scavenger hunt kicks off at noon, and the party should begin around 1:30 p.m. at Seattle Rep.
Can I win prizes other than Theatre for Life?
Yes! While only one winner will receive the grand prize of Theatre for Life, there are plenty of other door prizes to take home! And you don’t have to compete in the hunt to be eligible for the other prizes. So join us!
How can I learn more?
Sign-up for e-mail updates via our website. We’ll be rolling out more details about the scavenger hunt, party, and prizes over the next month so stay in the loop!
And don’t forget to join the Theatre for Life Facebook event and invite your friends. See you August 18th!

Venturing down to the Seattle Center soon to enjoy summer festivals and the Next 50 celebration? Then don’t miss out on the chance to check out the newly revamped food court at the Centerhouse (now called The Armory).
Now you may be wondering–why is Seattle Rep even talking about this? Let’s put it this way…the plethora of mouth-watering restaurants in the neighborhood makes it hard for our employees to honor that sack lunch they brought to work this morning. And besides, everybody loves finding a quick and tasty bite!
The revamped Armory isn’t your typical food court; some good stuff moved in recently and more will be coming soon! Think Eltana (wood-fired bagel cafe), Pie (savory and sweet flaky treats), Sweet Treats (think you can guess what this is), MOD Pizza, Ceres Roasting Company, Skillet, Dante’s Inferno Dogs, The Confectional, Bigfood (flatbread sandwiches, yum!) and Bean Sprout (health-focused cafe and kids’ cooking school).
Kudos to Seattle Center for the revamp and providing folks with healthier options and more delicious choices. We’re thinking it will come in handy for those patrons this upcoming season who need a quick bite before the show. (We definitely recommend trying the Chicken Pot Pie at Pie).
There’s a Spanish proverb that says, “The belly rules the mind.” Now go forth and eat!
It’s been about nine months (although sometimes it felt longer!) since Seattle Center broke ground on the Theater Commons, a new entrance, garden, and walkway located between the Rep and the Intiman in the northern part of the Seattle Center campus. Now the Theater Commons is done, and we’re ready to celebrate…join us?
Seattle Center, along with the Rep and Intiman, is hosting an opening celebration next Tuesday, June 15 from 4-6 p.m. at the Theater Commons. Musicians and street performers will be performing all across the new grounds, and light bites and refreshments (strawberry shortcake…) will be served under the Rep’s new entrance canopy, located off of Mercer Street.
A formal ceremony will take place from 4:30-5pm in the new amphitheatre area (the stairs right outside of the Rotunda). The ceremony will include a dedication of the Peter Donnelly gardens by Rep Managing Director Ben Moore. The small gardens located in the Theater Commons will be a lasting tribute to Donnelly, a Seattle arts activist and former Seattle Rep managing director.
Guided tours will be given after the ceremony. Take one of the tours and hear all about the conception and construction of the Theater Commons, as well as learn about the native plants and the art installations used.
The event is free and open to the public. Hope to see you there!
