THE NEPTUNE THEATRE > Nights at the Neptune


STG’s Nights at the Neptune is a series of free summer performances at The Neptune in Seattle that focuses on showcasing local artists’ work as it relates to race and social justice. Six free performances will bring our community together each Thursday night starting in July and through the middle of August 2017. New this year: a special kickoff event celebrating the 5th anniversary of Nights at the Neptune! Details below.

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!
