$3,600 Goal


For 2024, we are seeking GiveBIG support to fund the third annual Strawberry Jam—a play festival June 13-29 at 12th Ave Arts. Conceived of as a nurturing place for directors, the festival has produced 21 plays since the first SJAM in 2022. These are paid opportunities for directors at different stages in their careers to work with professional actors and designers in the only forum of its kind in Seattle—a place where the art of directing is the primary focus. 

SJAM needs your help to succeed.


Strawberry Theatre Workshop is committed to the idea that the theatre is the people's place of aspiration, and that any voice from the stage is translated exponentially into conversations at coffee shops, bus stops, classrooms, and play fields. This is an activist stance. To be a good neighbor is to be a relevant neighbor, a responsible neighbor, and a vocal neighbor


In 2004, Strawberry Theatre Workshop emerged as a small professional business committed to providing dignified wages to artists and craftspeople. This commitment allows Strawshop to recruit the most accomplished actors and directors to its stage, and provide the Capitol Hill neighborhood with access to Seattle's best storytellers. Strawshop produces plays for the public which are designed to both inspire a community conversation and provide roles for actors that inspire great performances. Strawshop strives to be a community center that motivates people to celebrate, argue, or agitate in response to a theatrical idea.
