Seattle Novyi Repertory Theatre

Simpler Higher Lighter Merrier

Welcome to Seattle Novyi Theatre!

Seattle Novyi Theatre (SNT) is a distinctive theater venture in Seattle offering an ongoing experiment in repertory theater on a local and international level. Our mission is to enhance the understanding of the human experience via theater and the Stanislavski System in an international and educational setting.

The child of a thirteen week 2006 workshop with “Honored Artist of Russia” Leonid Anisimov, SNT utilizes the Stanislavski System begun by Konstantin Stanislavski while collaborating with Anton Chekhov at the Moscow Art Theatre during their production of The Seagull in 1896. The system that Stanislavski began working on and continued to cultivate for the remainder of his life is founded on an artistically natural process of acting that is best developed over time in a situation that allows for the practical application of his theories and philosophy. Unique from any theater in the USA , SNT put into practice Stanislavki’s concepts during our first year of repertory theater between March 2006 and March 2007 while offering weekly performances of Anton Chekhov’s The Seagull and Uncle Vanya in an intimate twenty-seat theater on the northern shores of Lake Washington . Our goal during that time was to explore theater using the Stanislavski System while bringing communication, inner life and re-living to the stage. SNT’s next repertory performances were weekly productions of Horton Foote’s “Dearest of Friends” in the Spring of 2008.

In addition to our commitment to provide repertory theater in Seattle and throughout the Puget Sound area, another unique aspect of our group is its international composition: Founding members of SNT include theater artists who now make their home in Seattle but originally come from the countries of Canada , Cuba , England , Israel , Japan and Russia .

Please tell your family and friends about Seattle Novyi Theatre, a shining jewel of creativity in Seattle . Come to our performances often and invite your friends! Please leave your contact information at the door so that we may contact you with more details about our performance schedule.

Many thanks for being part of our journey. May we all learn to fly in theater and in life!
