About Encore Spotlight

For over 50 years, Encore has been proud to partner with arts organizations in Washington, Oregon and California by providing advertising sales and publishing services for their performance programs. At Encore, we have always felt strongly that offering audience members a program provides an opportunity to deepen the connection with the performance, the cast and the art community. These programs contain informative content, aesthetic layouts, and relevant advertising, while also acting as a beautiful keepsake and an integral part of the arts performance experience. By providing all of these, we strive to connect arts, culture and community.

Encore is always exploring new avenues to deepen communication and connection between the community and our partners. With this goal in mind, Encore developed Spotlight, a website celebrating local performance arts, dedicated to loyal patrons and focused on inviting new audiences to enjoy live performance art in the Greater Seattle Area and San Francisco Bay Area.

Bringing you the latest news, features, reviews and interviews about the performance arts you love, Encore Spotlight will keep you informed and entertained. Spotlight also offers you access to our Encore arts program archive—a wealth of information about past performances from our partners, which we are continually adding to.

And the next time you’re looking for a quality recommendation for what to do, check out our calendar of events—Things to Do. We have a spotlight on what you want to see. Through our calendar, visitors are able to learn about upcoming events throughout the Greater Seattle Area and San Francisco Bay Area. With Things to Do, visitors can search for more information on a specific event or browse hundreds of upcoming events by category, location, venue or date. Digital strategy for Things to Do is by Places Dot.

With quality coverage of the arts declining all over the country, we at Encore believe it’s our duty, and privilege as a member of the arts community to help halt that decline and offer relevant, engaging content for all and continue our mission of connecting arts, culture and community.
