Stone Town Theatre Works presents bold interpretations of classic texts.

Our Mission

Stone Town Theatre Works celebrates the role of the actor and playwright as the creative cornerstones of the highest quality theatrical productions. We fearlessly and viscerally provide our community with performances of the world’s best classic and contemporary dramatic literature.

So what does this mean?

With quality acting and a great script, Theatre can be created anywhere that an audience can congregate. High tech sets and lighting, while nice to have, don’t make the play. At Stone Town Theatre Works there are two things that we feel “make” the play; a great script and a great cast.

We focus on bringing to Bellingham plays that are not regularly seen here. We take what we call a modern approach to the classics. It doesn’t mean that we won't set a play in a classic period, but we are always concerned with the contemporary relevance of classic plays and choose scripts that will speak to the modern problems inherent with being human.
