Help Keep Our Soup Pot Full:
Stone Soup Theatre specializes in providing interesting and unusual work in a short play, at an affordable price, but we struggle to afford our space with a 40% rent increase and a $5,000 triple net charge in 2013 (taxes that a landlord can legally pass onto tenants)!
Help us keep our space and raise $5,000 to pay for our triple net taxes so that we can stay in our home and continue to serve up quality theatre that is always fresh and filling!
About Stone Soup:
In 1996, Maureen Miko wanted to start a small, neighborhood-oriented professional theatre. She found a defunct pet grooming shop standing empty on Stone Way, walked in and saw possibilities. The street name reminded her of a favorite story from her childhood about hungry, tired soldiers limping into an impoverished village where the villagers are none-too-interested in sharing their meager stores of food. One enterprising soldier fills a pot with water and tosses in a stone, saying how delicious the soup would be if someone had an onion. An onion is produced, then a carrot…eventually, each villager brings something to the broth and soon villagers and soldiers alike sit down to a wonderful meal made all the better because everyone contributed to its creation. Bringing together the street name and this old fable, Stone Soup Theatre was born. Here at Stone Soup, it is our philosophy that everyone – actor, author and audience – bring an essential ingredient to the creation of theatre and the sum is always greater than the parts. We are proud to be entering our sixteenth year here on Stone Way and wish to extend our profound thanks to the devoted students, friends and patrons who have supported us.
In 1999 Stone Soup Theatre began entertaining Seattle audiences with professional productions of one-act plays. The works of Tennessee Williams, Eugene Ionesco, John Guare, A.A. Milne, Harold Pinter, Thornton Wilder, Anton Chekhov, Neil Simon, Edward Albee, Tom Stoppard and Athol Fugard have been featured.
