About the Project
Based on the 1986 shuttle disaster, the all-woman ensemble of Challenger will take on the roles of teachers, astronauts, engineers, and more as they explore the heights of friendship, risk-taking, legacy, and our place in space. Never shying from the fate that media, politics, and technical malfunctions portend, Challenger is a passionate love poem to those who dared to go and their vision for the world through movement, song, and memoir.
Devised in 2012 by the original ensemble at Central Washington University and led by playwrite Elise Forier Edie, the original show has been adapted to make its Seattle debut at The Pocket Theatre in 2016 (the 30th anniversary of the tragedy), and will feature an all-new cast.

- Attend our reading on December 7th (7pm, TPS)
- Online work (audition organization) through the month of December
- Auditions and callbacks (January evenings, tentatively 3rd-5th or 10th-12th)
- 1 meeting per week in January/early February (day of the week tbd, based on cast)
- 3-4 weeknight rehearsals per week February-March
- Tech week availability in the first week of April (dates and times tbd, evenings and weekends)
- Shows April 7, 8, 15, 16.

Skills Needed
- Timekeeping and keeping an online rehearsal report.
- Keeping actors updated on their schedule, script changes, and what’s expected of them.
- Punctuality (reliable transportation), preferably in the greater Seattle area.
- Experience in Qlab is helpful, as you may be calling the show while running sound.
- An open and passionate mind to help motivate and problem-solve.

We know that your time and skills are so valuable! Unfortunately, as this is a small new work, we don’t have the means to promise more than a small stipend based on door sales, to be delivered April 19th (along with cast dinners and field trips!) We're looking for an SM who is passionate about the topic, and for whom this is not a barrier.

Please send your resume or questions to the director, Natalie Copeland at

The info session will be held in the Open Circle space at Freehold Theatre Lab/Studio, and will last approximately one hour.
2222 SECOND AVE STE. 200 SEATTLE, WA 98121


Freehold's Film Directing Course course is designed for directors seeking practical and high standard setting experience working with actors, camera and editing. Because of the intense and focused nature of the course, we limit class size to 8 directors in order to give each participant hands-on experience and lots of one-on-one work with the instructors and actors. We interview actors and directors to join the class, and students will work on a variety of different projects, focusing on what it takes to write a good scene; how to get honest and specific performances, where to put the camera and how to edit. Working with theatre text will give directors and actors an opportunity to work with actors in layered, proven material in which a rich subtextual life is necessary; then directors will move onto filming a short film (your choice is to shoot some scenes you have written, to shoot scenes we provide, or even shoot a narrative short limited to five minutes) with a cast we provide. The proven beauty of this course is that you will rewrite, shoot and edit that short three times, thus giving the instructors and you the ability to improve it again and again, until we celebrate the work with the public in a gala screening at the end. This is one of the few courses in Seattle where directors get to work hands on with actors, text, camera and master teachers.

Applications due: December 1
Interviews with Directors: December 7
Audition for Actors: January (Date TBA)


For Directors:
Wed Jan 20, 6:30 - 9:00 pm
Mon Jan 25, 6:30 - 9:30 pm
Mon Feb 1,  6:30 - 9:30 pm

Seminar: Mondays 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Lab: Wednesdays 6:00 - 10:00 pm
Final Screening Date: Wednesday, June 15, 2016
No class the weeks of April 4-6 & April 25-27
For Actors:
Feb 8 - May 9
Lab: Wednesdays 6:00 - 10:00 pm
Final Screening Date TBA (Mid May)
No class the weeks of April 4-6 & April 25-27

What our students are saying...
"I went into this class with an open mind. I came out enriched and inspired as an actor, director, and storyteller! For people who know what they want, and are eager to invest their time, energy, and creative ability into getting it, this class is an incredibly enriching experience!"
"The most enriching aspect of the lab is the ongoing feedback, mentoring and coaching from the faculty - John Jacobsen and Robin Lynn Smith. Their love for the art and craft of directing is evident from their commitment to the field. To experience them collectively is a gift that will keep on giving."
"Taking the Freehold Director's Workshop is an extraordinary experience in every way...the depth and breadth of learning, the matchless opportunity to be mentored by John Jacobsen and Robin Lynn Smith (each one a top choice in their own right -TOGETHER - a once in a lifetime "grab-it-while-you-can" opportunity).  The Workshop stands head and shoulders above other training courses in the area."
"Loved this class!  Having the chance to film scenes with directors with different skill sets was great.  Working with brand new directors really you down in the trenches with the directors, sometimes having to tussle over ideas and lots of collaboration.  Absolutely wonderful learning tool!  And getting to work up close with John and Robin was a dream come true for this actor.  Love them both.  So much darn talent in those two!!!!  I would love to take the class again if I get the time.  Took the class 2 or 3 years ago and I am still making movies with directors I met in class. Take the class!  You will not be disappointed."

Price for Directors: $1435 // $1195 (Discounted)
Price for Actors: $300 // $250 (Discounted)
