Seattle Shakespeare Company ended the 2011-12 season with a budget surplus, managing director John Bradshaw has announced. He added that this marks the 11th straight year that Seattle Shakes has operated with a balanced budget. Bradshaw said single-ticket (up for the 4th year in a row) and subscription sales exceeded the company’s goals as did the annual “Bill’s Bash” fundraiser. In human terms, more than 52,000 people took in SSC productions across the state last season, including 90 indoor performances, 36 outdoor (free) (and very funny) Wooden O productions and 65 touring performances.

Seattle Shakes opens its new season with that tragedy from the First Folio, “Antony and Cleopatra,” Nov. 1-18.
