Intiman Theatre uses the power of story and education to activate dialogue, confront inequity, and build collective joy. Intiman is the professional theatre-in-residence at Seattle Central College in Capitol Hill. The company won the 2006 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre, the 2018 Gregory Award for Outstanding Musical, 2018 Teeny Award, 2019 Mayor’s Arts Award, and is overseen by Artistic Director, Jennifer Zeyl and Managing Director Wesley Frugé.
Since its founding in 1972, Intiman Theatre has presented over 240 productions to Seattle audiences. Among the more recent of these are THE MYSTERY OF IRMA VEP by Charles Ludlam, THE EVENTS by David Grieg, HIR by Taylor Mac, BULRUSHER by Eisa Davis, NATIVE GARDENS by Karen Zacarías, ANGELS IN AMERICA by Tony Kushner, TROUBLE IN MIND and WEDDING BAND by Alice Childress, BOOTYCANDY and BARBECUE by Robert O’hara, and DRAGON LADY by Sara Porkalob.
In 2021, Intiman moved its operations to the campus of Seattle Central College (SCC), where it now produces at Broadway Performance Hall and Erickson Theatre. Intiman provides arts education opportunities through programs such as: STARFISH Project, South End Stories (a fiscally sponsored community partner), and an Associate of Arts Degree providing behind the scenes technical skills training for theatre, film, TV and more in partnership with SCC.
"Intiman has a passion for social justice, and we strive towards liberation through artistic activism. We look at inequities plaguing our country and talk about these injustices in our theatrical productions, work through these injustices in our educational programs, and evaluate our own policies within community to check our own institutional injustices."
