Funhouse is recurring play anthology series inspired by The Twilight Zone, Black Mirror, Saturday Night Live, Mr. Show and Adult Swim. Funhouse is a collection of subversive and experimental original content. Our show serves as a rotating platform for diverse, up-and-coming and established playwrights, directors, actors, and designers. The creators of Funhouse want artists to take bold risks in their storytelling.

Funhouse was created by Brian Toews. The first show was co-produced and directed by Anna Ly, Brian Toews, and Chris Quilici. It received its premiere at Eclectic Theater in Seattle, WA June 2017 to a sold-out run.

Funhouse II was directed by Brian Toews, Dylan Gervais, Maddy Noonan, and Mario Orallo-Molinaro and premiered at The Slate Theater in October 2017 selling out three of four performances.

Audition Requirements:
Tell us a 90 second story from your life (true or fictional) and 16 bars of a song; there may be singing involved in your role so come with a song prepared.

Please bring a resume and a headshot.

HEADS UP: There will not be an accompanist at auditions, so you'll be singing a cappella. If you're a musician and would prefer to play a little music while you sing, feel free to bring along your guitar/accordion/theremin/whatever.

We also want to reiterate that you do not need to be an extraordinary singer to be cast in the Funhouse III ensemble. The only reason we're asking you to sing a little diddy during auditions is to see if you can carry a tune. Most people can carry a tune. You'll be fine.

Funhouse vocal director Tim Albertson will help get everyone on the same page once the show is cast.

The Funhouse III music is almost entirely chorus style, so you'll be singing with your buddies. That being said, there are opportunit
