Welcome to the 2021 Bill's Bash Auction!

Seattle's liveliest gala, now in your own home.

Seattle Shakespeare is a professional, classical, year-round theatre company that brings classic plays to life with audiences, students, and artists across Washington State.

Bill's Bash is Seattle Shakespeare Company's annual fundraiser, happening online once again! Together, we're thrilled to celebrate the art we make together and looking forward to when we can do it again.

Now, let's Bash!

The page you're on right now is Auction Headquarters. This is where you'll bid on exciting auction items, shop the Artist Marketplace, and even where you'll "raise your paddle" for Seattle Shakespeare!

Bill's Bash Trivia Contest!

Do you know what the very first full Shakespeare production in Seattle was? How about which Shakespeare character speaks the most lines? Would you like to find out?

Each weekday we'll offer a new set of tough Shakespearean trivia questions to pique your interest and possibly lead to some serious online investigating!

Every single correct answer will get you an entry into our grand prize drawing—an invitation for two to our next opening night (and opening night party!) and three dozen chocolate chip cookies baked by our very own managing director, John Bradshaw!

You must be present at Bill's Bash Live on May 15 at 7pm to be eligible.
