Seattle Rep’s Public Works family of community and professional actors join together for a dazzling journey of reunion and redemption in a musical adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale.
The Sicilian King Leontes suspects his wife of infidelity and seeks revenge by imprisoning her and banishing their newborn child to distant shores. Sixteen years later, in the wild woods of Bohemia, the consequences of his actions begin to unfold.
IN-PERSON VS. STREAMING EXPERIENCE
The Winter's Tale is a hybrid film and live theatrical experience.
What does this mean? The Winter's Tale has been rehearsed and filmed onsite at Seattle Rep and Seattle Center campus and beautifully edited to feature the rollicking Bard-inspired story as well as a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes magic of creating a Public Works production.
To experience The Winter’s Tale in person, you will join fellow theater fans at the Cornish Playhouse (across the way from Seattle Rep!) for one of five showtimes to watch the film together. Enjoy elements of the in-person theatrical experience we’ve all missed, including atmospheric lighting and being in community with fellow theatergoers. Seattle Rep’s COVID health and safety protocols will be in full effect for all in-person attendees.
To experience The Winter’s Tale from home: You can watch the filmed show anytime from Dec. 16–19 on your home devices. Streaming-specific details will be shared in the coming weeks.
