Seattle Repertory Theatre
The Seattle Repertory Theatre (SRT) opened in 1963. A non-profit organization, SRT was originally a project of the Century 21 Exposition (Seattle World's Fair). In 1977, a 19 million dollar bond issue was passed, of which 4.8 million was designated for the construction of a new resident theatre, the Bagley Wright Theatre, which opened in 1983. Since then, SRT has expanded with additional spaces, such as the Leo Kreielsheimer Theatre and PONCHO Forum. In 1990, SRT won a Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre.
