About Thalia's Umbrella
Thalia's Umbrella is a collaboration between Producing Artistic Director Terry Edward Moore and director Daniel Wilson, to produce plays that dance on the line between comedy and tragedy, taking the light of life seriously and the serious lightly, to create a space where, in Robert Frost's words, "the work is play for mortal stakes." Thalia's first two productions, A Day in the Death of Joe Egg and A Lesson From Aloes, each received a Footlight Award from the Seattle Times. Moore was a co-founder of Seattle Shakespeare Company, and served as Co-Artistic Director there for six years. He has acted and/or directed for most of the professional theaters in the Pacific Northwest, as well as theaters from coast to coast. Daniel Wilson has directed plays professionally from New York to Alaska, and has directed opera in Oregon, Alaska, and for Cornish College of the Arts.

Thalia's Umbrella is fiscally sponsored by Shunpike. Shunpike is the 501(c)(3) not-for-profit agency that provides independent arts groups in Washington State with the services, resources, and opportunities they need to forge their own paths to sustainable success. Learn more at
