Seattle Immersive Theatre to close after one year on Queen Anne
Posted on January 28th, 2017 by Laura Fonda
Last January, we shared the news that Seattle Immersive Theatre was moving into the old Silver Platters location at the corner of Roy & 5th Ave N. The theatre signed a one-year lease, and as that lease expires, the troupe is moving on. Its three February performances – Storyville Rising, The Few Clothes Cabaret, and Mardi Gras Masquerade – will be the last on Queen Anne.
According to Seattle Immersive Theatre, the landlord of the building at 701 5th Ave N seeks to “more than double” the current lease amount. This particular site has been in the blog before, as it’s slated for demolition to make way for a new development. Design plans were revealed in October for the near-future 5-story building that will house 99 apartments and 3,481 square feet of commercial space on the ground floor:
Seattle Immersive Theatre may be losing their current home, but they plan to soldier on – here’s what they have to say about the future:
“Don’t despair- three years ago Seattle Immersive Theatre started as a nomadic theatre company and we’re embracing the change back to doing site-specific productions. Although we’ll be leaving our Queen Anne location, we certainly aren’t done doing our own brand of theatre magic.
Join us as we bid a bittersweet adieu to the space we’ve called home for the past year. The Masquerade Ball on February 25th will be our last event at this space and we plan to go out with a bang! After a respite from the transition, we’re on to the next adventure.”
