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.

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.

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.
