About the Reboot Team

Founded in 2014, Reboot Theatre Company is a 501(c)3 non-profit theatre company based in Seattle, WA.

Our Story

It started with thirty women in an apartment common room reading from scripts and singing to a lone keyboard. After an extremely successful fundraising campaign, including a sold-out cabaret, a “What if” conversation turned into the nation’s first fully realized all-female production of 1776 in a 300 seat house at Magnusson Park.

After repeatedly hearing, “After the first five minutes, I forgot you all were women!”, we knew we had something special. If an audience could suspend its disbelief while watching a woman play Thomas Jefferson or Benjamin Franklin, what else could we attempt?

Reboot strives to find where context breaks the story. How far can we go? Let’s find out.
