Overview: Mission / Vision  

Strawberry Theatre Workshop (aka Strawshop) 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.

Strawshop is dedicated to the idea of ensemble, in the broadest sense of the word. Strawshop’s ensemble does not only mean a resident company of workers, but a collective that includes its work, its audience, and its neighborhood. This is an activist stance. To be a good neighbor is to be a relevant neighbor, a responsible neighbor, and a vocal neighbor.



Strawberry Theatre Workshop is an award-winning Seattle theatre company founded in 2003 by Greg Carter, associated with a movement to improve wages for professional theatre artists. Strawshop is committed to paying all of its artists a dignified wage.
