Raisbeck Hall

Ned & Kayla Skinner Theater

The principal performance venue at Cornish’s Main Campus in downtown Seattle.

Displaying the charm and craftsmanship of a bygone era, Raisbeck is an ideal setting for smaller scale productions of Cornish’s Theater Department. At the intersection of Boren and Fairview avenues, the hall is about 25 yards from the Main Campus Center.

An individual facing an impending 35th birthday struggles to come up with a wish to make as they blow out the birthday candles surrounded by a group of married friends. At a turning point in life this person who has thus far walked a solitary path faces the imperative to come to terms with either being happy as they are, or seeking a romantic partner. Over a series of dinner parties, first dates, and thoughtful conversations, our central character attempts to understand what marriage and commitment mean in their own life. When it premiered in 1971, Company received both the Drama Desk and Tony Awards for Best Musical, Book, Score and Lyrics.

Rehearsals are currently scheduled to begin Monday, September 23. 

Composer-lyricist Stephen Sondheim and librettist George Furth also collaborated on the musical Merrily We Go Along and the drama Getting Away with Murder. Sondheim has also written music and/or lyrics for other great musicals, including West Side Story, Gypsy, Into the Woods, Follies, A Little Night Music, Assassins, Sweeney Todd and Sunday in the Park with George. 

Richard Gray has directed Lift, Grand Hotel, Drood and Quilters at Cornish. Rich recently appeared as Officer Krupke in the 5th Avenue Theatre’s West Side Story,  and his musical Cold Turkey will be workshopped in August as part of Village Theatre’s 19th Annual Festival of New Musicals. Rich is  currently taking on the role of King Neptune in various Seafair activities around the region. He will be teaching several musical theater classes this fall at Cornish.
