Penguin Productions

Penguin Productions engages, empowers, and creates artists. Through theater, we nurture creativity, passion, and empathy. We believe people of all ages and experience levels can be theater artists, and that our work expands capacity for personal and communal engagement. There’s a wealth of creative energy in our midst, and even with all the programming in this city, much of that energy continues to go untapped, unharnessed, and play out in isolation. We meet a need for flexible, responsive, inclusive collaboration that builds both community and individuals. There is no financial obligation to participate in any opportunity with Penguin Productions. What do we mean by “served”? Youth act in full productions, choose their own material for in-depth analysis and performance, design independent projects, discuss theater from a multiplicity of perspectives, interview diverse theater professionals, and participate in small teams in Seattle’s arts scene as theatergoers and commentators. Parents have unique opportunities for authentic, meaningful discussions with their kids about Shakespeare, contemporary social issues, and personal development. Families, teachers, neighbors, and others come together in celebration of community. New artistic, professional, and social connections have been made in and around Penguin Productions. Penguin also serves our community by offering professional opportunities in theater arts education, directing, playwriting, marketing, communications, and development to emerging artists.
