Seattle Actors Workshop announces the Fall Session of its popular class The Art of the Audition, with Margaret Layne and Victor Pappas!

Maybe that monologue you used to shrug into like an old sweater doesn’t seem to fit as comfortably as it did -  a little tight across the shoulders?  Buttons not doing up properly?  Or maybe that speech you used to love just doesn’t fire you up the way it used to?  If you’re not getting the results you want from your general auditions (i.e. callbacks!), it could be time to find something new and fabulous that suits the actor you are today! This could be just the class you need to perk up your presentation and make your auditions richer, more impactful, and more truthfully representative of who you are as an actor.

This six-week long class is geared towards working actors interested in developing or improving their audition and monologue skills. Participants will learn to explore the monologue with the same depth of detail used in creating a character for a full-length production, and everyone will finish the class with three monologues ready to use for audition purposes. Monologues will be personally chosen by the instructors to speak to participants’ skills and quality of presence, while also stretching them to enhance the variety and versatility they can show within a trio of pieces.

Details are as follows:
6 meetings:  10/12, 10/19, 10/26, 11/9, 11/16, 11/23 (Note: No Class on 11/2)
Monday evenings 6 pm – 9 pm, Private studio on Queen Anne
Space is limited to 8 participants, admission by interview
Interviews on Tuesday, September 29, 4-7pm at ACT Theatre
Price:   $475. Amount to be paid in full prior to the first day of class to ensure your place. (Payment plans available, please contact class administrator Jessica Martin for more information.)
To request an interview, please email:

The Instructors:
Victor Pappas is a nationally known director, actor, administrator and instructor. He spent seven years as Associate Artistic Director of Intiman Theatre, and has directed numerous productions for Intiman and other venues in Seattle, most recently “The Price” at ACT Theatre and “The Importance of Being Earnest” for Seattle Shakespeare Company.

He has taught at the American Conservatory Theatre, PCPA/Theaterfest, and the Professional Actors Conservatory of Rancho Santiago College, and most recently spent ten years as Associate Chair of NYU's prestigious Graduate Acting Program.

Margaret Layne recently celebrated her 21st anniversary at Seattle’s ACT – A Contemporary Theatre, and her 20th as its Director of Casting.  A native New Yorker, her pre-Seattle credits include front of house staff at Yale Repertory Theatre; Roundabout Theatre Company as Assistant to Todd Haimes; American Repertory Theatre at Harvard as Assistant to Robert Brustein; and a brief stint as Assistant to the General Manager of the Metropolitan Opera.  As an independent CD she has done Northwest casting for the Icicle Creek Theatre Festival at Leavenworth and at ACT, Arizona Theatre Company, Atlanta’s Alliance Theatre, and Cleveland Playhouse; taught audition workshops and master classes at Cornish College of the Arts, the University of Washington, Eckerd University, and The Guthrie Theatre/University of Minnesota; and served as an end-of-year adjudicator for Portland Actors Conservatory.  She is a graduate of New York’s Brearley School and holds a B.A. Cum Laude in English Literature from Yale University.

directed & co-produced by Anoushka Ratnarajah
featuring live music by Haig Ashod Beylerian
Seattle (Youngstown Cultural Arts Center: 4408 Delridge Way SW) - October 17 @ 8pm


Garo has been researching Armen Ohanian - an enigmatic Armenian performer and survivor of the twentieth century anti-Armenian pogroms… Dear Armen follows the story of a genderqueer writer and student, Garo, as they study the life and work of Armen Ohanian, an enigmatic Armenian performer and survivor of the early 20th-century anti-Armenian pogroms in Baku. As Garo grapples with the discrepancies between Ohanian’s biography and memoirs, they are forced to confront memories from the past, unraveling experiences around gender, sexuality, ethnicity, family, and the role of the artist. An interactive-theatre experience blending traditional Armenian dance, erotic performance, monologue and live music, Dear Armen weaves together the voices and struggles of three generations of gender nonconforming Armenians. Unveiling fragmented legacies of genocide and displacement, the narrative kaleidoscopes stories that highlight the complexities of survival.


Dear Armen is an audience-interactive theatre experience inspired by the life of Armen Ohanian, an enigmatic Armenian performer and poet; integrating Armenian dance, erotic performance, and spoken word. Ohanian’s story and spirit are embodied in the characters and weaved throughout the narrative, invoking the power and complexity of historical and contemporary Armenian identities. Through experimental theatre and interdisciplinary performance, we reincarnate Ohanian’s life and spirit with movement and sound – demonstrating her ability to transform herself and the audience’s perception of theatre and the erotic. The show will uncover the life of this incredibly productive and unconventional artist, recover the legacy of a woman who brought innovation to Armenian theatre, and connect her story to contemporary histories of performers from various genres.


Dear Armen centres the struggles and successes of queer, trans* and gender nonconforming Armenians, exploring the intersections of identity, history, and cultural memory. By remembering Armen Ohanian, we bring to the fore an avant-garde Armenian figure who is too little discussed or remembered, and highlight the parallels that exist between her story and contemporary experiences. In so doing, this work hopes to break through memoricide, ensuring more of our cultural memories are passed down and used to help heal the intergenerational trauma left by genocide and displacement. In bringing Armen Ohanian to our protagonist Garo, we give a young trans* Armenian a mentor and heroine to project their own pain of exile and exclusion onto: someone to mirror some of their own search and an echo from the past that they are not alone. Armen becomes a literary friend and figure absent from the young Garo’s life, and together their poetic search for self-expression, artistic innovation, and cultural connection blend into a poetry of words, movement, and music. Our hope is to connect these stories with both Armenian and non-Armenian audiences, and in particular, to reach those who see themselves on the fringes, and who are searching for representations of themselves on the stage and in stories.

Past Shows

Dear Armen debuted its first incarnation in Yerevan, Armenia in September 2013. The original script was written in English then translated to Armenian and performed in Armenian. In the spring of 2014, the crew created the second incarnation of Dear Armen (performed in English) and toured this work in NYC, Toronto, and Montreal. The tour consisted of a two week run at Alwan for the Arts (NYC), and shows at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre (TO), Two Masks Theatre at Armenian Community Centre (TO), and at a Secret Loft (Montreal). In the fall of 2015, Dear Armen went on its first Pacific tour, featuring shows at The Roundhouse Performance Centre (VAN), The Leventine Cultural Centre (LA), and Golden Thread Productions (SF) where it saw a two week run at Thick House.
