For such a small community to have such a rich and diverse arts scene is no coincidence – the San Juan Islands are full of artists who are endlessly passionate about sharing their craft. Take the co-founders of our newest Charity of the Quarter, for example: for twenty years they have worked to bring free, professional theatre to anyone who wants to see it! Did we mention that they do it for free?
Island Stage Left is a local nonprofit likely best known for its summertime “Shakespeare Under the Stars,” but they have brought a wide variety of quality productions to venues ranging from outdoor stages to beaches to private living rooms, and everything in between.
Their mission is simple: to provide “top quality professional theatre – free of charge – to all islanders and island visitors, no matter what their financial or social status.”

*Donations are collected at shows for anyone wishing to support Stage Left, but after two decades of hard work, they are ready for a more stable source of funding. With guidance from the San Juan Island Community Foundation, they’ve developed the Stage Left Star Circle, which provides some serious perks for serious donors.
