Experienced Assistant Stage Manager needed for Ara’Kus Productions Aeterno Elementum: A Heavy Metal Opera.  Rehearsals begin in October and run through January in the Seattle area.  ASM will be needed to run some rehearsals TBD throughout December, and to work the backstage during the run at the Kirkland Performance Center January 11th-24th. ASM must have experience supervising a backstage crew, and be comfortable with weapons, fog and fire. This is a paid position. 

This is an exciting show with many unique challenges that features a large cast of actors and musicians, fire dancers, and aerialist and lots of highly choreographed live steel combat.  Above all, we are here to have fun and put on an amazing performance.  More info and photos available at and

Submit resumes to Jenifer King, Stage Manager at

Show Description:

Wisps of damp fog run up your arms and a gentle snow begins to fall as your ears fill with the clash of steel on steel, all while soaring operatic Heavy Metal music pounds in rhythm with your heart. That is Aeterno Elementum.

You won’t simply hear it.

You won’t just watch it.

You’ll feel it.

You’ll experience it.

Ara’Kus has been performing and perfecting Aeterno Elementum for 5 years, and what we’ve learned is that stories can be told through sight and sound alone. But a truly remarkable story, that’s something that can’t just play out on a movie screen, it’s something you have to immerse yourself in. Aeterno Elementum isn’t a story that will just occur on stage, it will play out around you and amongst you. Once you enter the theater, you’ll find yourself in a world that is dying from the cruelty and corruption that is eating away at it like a cancer.

You’ll feel the heat of the flames as betrayal claims a man’s honor. You’ll hear the waves break against the rocks as envy and desire dooms a man’s soul. You’ll see assassins creeping through the audience, perhaps even sneak right past you, as they hunt a man who couldn’t escape his past. The drums of war will echo in your chest as mankind makes one final stand.

That is Aeterno Elementum: a story you’ll experience with every sense your body possesses. An experience you won’t get anywhere else.

Fourteen years before Juliet met Romeo . . .

Juliet's Nurse, a new novel from critically acclaimed author and historian Lois Leveen being published Simon & Schuster, imagines the 14 years leading up to the event in Shakespeare's play.  Lois will be giving two talks about the history behind the book,  9/24 at 7:00 pm at Third Place Books in Lake Forest Park, and 9/25 at 7:30 pm at Eagle Harbor Books on Bainbridge Island.  Both events are free and open to the public.  Juliet's Nurse is available in print, audio, and ebook format at all major bookstores.

Find event details:

 About the book and the speaker: 

Celebrate the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth with this revelatory new take on the world's best-known love story: Juliet's Nurse combines a prequel to Romeo and Juliet with a fresh vision of the events in the play, all through the eyes of Juliet's ever-present wet nurse, Angelica, who tells a passionate tale of the deepest love in Verona – the love between a grieving woman and her precious milk- daughter.
Who has the greatest number of lines in Romeo and Juliet, after the title characters? Juliet's wet nurse, a woman who was both insider and outsider among Verona's ruling class. What did Shakespeare see in her? Author and historian Lois Leveen's new novel is the vividly imagined, utterly intriguing answer to this question.
About the book:
Angelica is mourning her own day-old infant when she must leave her loving husband to enter the household of the wealthy Cappelletti family to care for their newborn baby Juliet. Angelica takes immense comfort in nurturing Juliet, but she soon finds herself embedded in the rivalries and jealousies of the powerful Capelletti, where sweet, 10- year-old Tybalt, cousin to Juliet, serves as her one ally. But fourteen years later, when the Cappelletti family's darkest secrets erupt across five momentous days of passion and loss, Angelica must confront her own deepest grief to find the strength to survive.
Weaving in rich historical details of life in medieval and Renaissance Italy, Juliet's Nurse takes us beyond the tragic ending of Romeo and Juliet into a very different story, revealing the love, loss and resilience that is the heart of human experience.
About the author:
Award-winning historian, author, and former college professor LOIS LEVEEN holds degrees in history and literature from Harvard, UCLA, and USC. She traveled to Verona, Italy, to research JULIET'S NURSE, as well as apprenticing herself to an urban beekeeping group in her adopted hometown of Portland, Oregon, to write accurately about the life cycle of hives. Lois has given talks in Finland, France, and throughout the US about the historical research behind JULIET'S NURSE, and about how she approached challenging themes of teen violence, suicide, and plague epidemics in adapting Shakespeare for contemporary readers.
