Cornish Playhouse Public Benefit
The Cornish Playhouse is operated in accordance with the mission of Cornish College of the Arts. In particular, it serves as a focal point in the community for public presentation, artistic criticism, participation and discussion of the arts.
The Cornish Playhouse at Seattle Center is available for public and educational use. Currently, this involves: (1) a producing component where Seattle performing arts groups create work specifically for and in the space, (2) a presenting component where Cornish hosts national and international guests for Seattle audiences, (3) a community building element – providing free space and events for Seattle audiences and arts groups alike, and (4) an education component for Cornish students and the public alike.
