about-us

Hey! We’re glad you stopped by.

Seaview_Type_Home_Openthrough strategic innovation in creative development, audience experience, consumer engagement, and investment management. Everyone has something meaningful to contribute, and your involvement will help us grow our organizational impact.

STORIES DOCUMENT HISTORY.

Storytelling brings us together. By sharing in the creation of experiences and interpreting moments we foster a deeper understanding of self, others and our world. Theater remains one of our most powerful ways of telling stories, which continue to shape culture and define societal beliefs.

WE BELIEVE THAT THEATER HAS THE POWER TO CHANGE LIVES AND CHANGE HEARTS.

Much like a campfire, theater offers a communal opportunity as we take in visuals, sounds and share powerful emotions. Collectively we grow from the residual effects that live within us long after the lights, or embers, dim.

OUR VISION

Seaview_Type_Investment_Open

A calculated risk feels a whole lot safer when you’ve built a model for evaluation and measuring impact.

When scouting new projects we assess four key criteria:

 

INSPIRATION

We’ve spent most of our lives around theater, and that experience allows us to know a good show when we see it. We continue to develop deep TRUST by meticulously cultivating the best performances for investment.

ENGAGEMENT

Theater can be so much more than seeing a show. We believe that from the moment an audience member decides to buy a ticket to well after the show ends they are a brand ambassador. We look for ways to deepen INVOLVEMENT through value-added benefits.

EXPERIENCE

Theater needs a little shaking up and we have big ideas on how to disrupt an established industry. The process that leads to the creation of, investment in and viewing of a show should reflect the INNOVATIVE spirit of our generation

INVESTMENT

Theatrical performances aren’t cheap to produce but the financial risk can pay off…in a big way. We’re developing a new model for investment to take in to the future, recreating theater while making it more transparent, ACCESSIBLE, and profitable.
