The Early Seattle Theatre History Project  (ESTHP) documents the history of theatre in Seattle from 1851 to 1920.  ESTHP is one of several projects developed under the auspices of the Global Performing Arts Consortium (GloPAC), an international organization of institutions and individuals committed to using innovative digital technologies to create easily accessible, multimedia, and multilingual information resources for the study and preservation of the performing arts. Other GloPAC projects include the Japanese Performing Arts Resource Center (JPARC) and the Global Performing Arts Database (GloPAD).
