Book-It Repertory Theatre
partner since 2007
Book-It Repertory Theatre was founded in 1990 as an artists’ collective, adapting short stories for performance and touring them throughout the Northwest. Today, with over 100 world-premiere adaptations of full-length novels to its credit, Book-It is widely respected for the consistent artistic excellence of its work. Book-It creates world-premiere adaptations of classic and contemporary literature for the stage, preserving the narrative text as it is spoken, not by a single “narrator” but as dialogue by the characters in the production. Performing books instead of plays allows the Book-It theatre experience to spark the audience’s interest in reading and to challenge the audience to participate by using their imaginations.
