about copious love


“Copious Love Productions is a Seattle theatre company focused on cultivating original works. We strive to develop fun interactive experiences for a more vibrant community of art, artists and audiences.”

Founded in 2010, we are currently running our 4th season of entirely original Seattle works. Our program stretches across 2016 and 2017, including three main stage theatrical productions and an array of community events.

Check our Calendar for up to the minute info on everything the company is up to.

At the core, we are a start-up production company composing and cultivating entirely original artistic productions in our home town of Seattle, WA. We are concentrated on producing, writing, and directing original works, and amplifying the creativity of our membership and community at large. The company is comprised of three Founders who lead the Operational Staff, Production Staffs, our extended Membership, with our Board of Directors. With our production program of two plays and a musical each season, and all of our annual and recurring events, we strive to engage artists toward deeper community. We represent and believe in our city, and we want to do anything that will further Seattle’s position as one of the world’s best places to create art. Above all is our “Copious Love” – it is the essence and power in what we do. To build an environment of encouragement we prioritize relationships throughout the creation process and are strengthened by the teams we ultimately rely on. Together we want to create a cultural gravity for creative works as we further Copious Love as a catalyst for original Seattle arts.
