Nights at the Neptune: A People’s Theatre Joint, is a platform designed to give voice to some of our most pressing race and social justice issues, using art to shake and awaken our consciousness to inequity, while celebrating our shared cultures and forgotten histories. Local artists/arts organizations respond to an open call. A panel of local artists, entrepreneurs, activists and advocates review and select the final list of participants. With community support from The Norcliffe Foundation, STG opens The Neptune to the artists for free to mount a performance, that is also free to the public, providing access to all. This is performing arts by the people, for the people!

Since 2013, STG has been producing the free Nights at the Neptune series as a way to create space for local artists and organizations to connect with the people of Seattle. The series' focus is on Art that relates to the pressing issues of our time; honors and celebrates our shared cultures and uplifts a more multicultural community!
