Join the Society

Dear Society Supporter,


Our annual membership drive is underway and we are asking you to join and to give. Thank you for your support by attending our shows and bringing in new fans. This past July, we were able to produce an artistically stunning and very entertaining Iolanthe in large part due to the extra financial support of our membership; and now we are asking you to join the Society with a generous donation that will help us accomplish a lot more this year.

The Seattle Gilbert & Sullivan Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization performing the operatic works of Gilbert and Sullivan in Seattle, WA. The Society was formed in 1954 and at 59 years old we are one of the oldest continuous amateur theater companies in the Pacific Northwest. The Society occupies a unique musical and artistic niche between grand opera  and musical theater and has produced each G&S show at least twice, some much more frequently, and stands alone as the only source, perhaps in the world, of broadcast-quality videos of all existing Gilbert & Sullivan operettas.

The Seattle Gilbert & Sullivan Society mission is to produce the Gilbert & Sullivan canon of thirteen operettas in its entirety at the highest artistic standard, at an affordable price, and in the spirit of friendship and community. In addition our mission is also to promote the study, production, appreciation and enjoyment of musical compositions and plays, particularly those of Gilbert and Sullivan as well as develop the skill sets of singers, musicians, and artistic support staff.

The Seattle Gilbert & Sullivan Society is also a leading source of Gilbert & Sullivan artistic and theatrical knowledge and support. We offer local and global production assistance and technical support to other companies who wish to produce a Gilbert & Sullivan operetta. We also have a superior rehearsal facility for rent to other non-profit production companies at an affordable price for either public or private showing.
