Brown Paper Tickets:

IRRATIONAL ROBOT BUREAU, in collaboration with KTO PRODUCTIONS, presents a new, original adaptation of ALCESTIS by the Classic Greek tragedian Euripides!

The ancient play enacts the myth of Admetus and Alcestis, King and Queen of Pherae, who become participants in the dealings of deities and, consequently, are emblazoned by the divine fire.

With the aid of a powerful god, the King is granted the ability to circumvent Death’s designs on him... but only if another will offer up his or her own mortal existence. When no one else can be found, the Queen Alcestis steps forward, thereby igniting the flames of a passionate struggle for identity, soul, ecstasy and agency… and for the assurance of choosing how we live and how we die.

September, 16 - October 1, 2016

Seattle Musical Theatre, now in its 39th season, is offering discounted tickets for Industry folks for tonight's performance of WORKING!

Based on Studs Terkel’s 1978 best-selling book of interviews with American workers, Working paints a vivid portrait of the men and women the world so often takes for granted; from iron workers to flight attendants to waitresses, and more. The humorous and heartwarming stories the workers tell are the core truths that transcend specific professions; the key is how people’s relationships to their work ultimately reveal key aspects of their humanity.

Come to our box office this evening before our 7:30pm performance, mention the phrase "Mother Trucker", and you'll get $20 tickets to the show!

We'll see you there!!!

GARY AUSTIN's TWO RING CIRCUS comes to Seattle with YOU as the players.
Limited Space
​Saturday and Sunday, October 1st and 2nd, 2016

Gary Austin is the Founder and Original Director of THE GROUNDLINGS, Los Angeles’ premier character-based improvisational theatre company.

"Working with Gary Austin taught me the joy of improvisation and gave me courage as an actor.  I no longer assume I know what my limits are" ~ Helen Hunt

This workshop is not for the faint of heart.

If after reading the descriptions (see below) and you are curious, challenged, and you want to create some kind of wonderful, take the plunge and sign up.
This is an exploration first from the physical that then unfolds into story by the relationship you create with everything and everyone on stage. And you get to share the stage with another player!

Some local Seattle actors who have braved the 48th Street Exercise: Wonder Russell, Lisa Levan, Mike Fuller (who just returned from the Two Ring on the Groundling stage), Carol Sparer, Amy Sedgwick, Jim Burgess, Craig Nelson, Samara Lerman...

See you there...Kay

1:00 - 6:00 pm

Course title: TWO RING CIRCUS

Course description:  Two actors perform the 48th St. Exercise simultaneously.  Two Ring Circus is also known as the 96th Street Exercise.

Participants must register for both Saturday and Sunday. 
Class size is limited to a maximum of 12 participants.  First deposits determine class list.

Recent Two Ring Circus at the Groundlings including Seattle transplanted actor, Bridget O'neill (at 55:12) with LA's Kinna McInroe.

"In TWO RING CIRCUS actors simultaneously do improvised solo performance, sometimes playing together and then returning to their solo performance."

LIBBY SKALA: (Read more of Libby's description)
What I love about your solo exploration workshop is that it’s the ultimate writer’s block remover. It provides the perfect forum to discover material from a visceral, rather than an critical, analytical place.
By committing to arbitrary physical actions, adjustments, vocal patterns, and locations on stage, I find myself step by step, freed from the need to look and sound good, clever and intelligent. I become immersed in play and movement and speech flow freely. I enter the world of the heart and not the head....
BRIDGET O'NEILL: (Read more of Bridget's description)
Gary Austin makes for one very interesting teacher. I enjoy working with him. I don’t always know what to expect from him, but the surprises work both ways, I rarely know what to expect from myself. He has this distinct ability to keep one deliciously off balance and this, combined with his unique tools and exercises, creates a wonderful environment for discovery. Never have I surprised myself more than in Gary’s Solo Performance “48th Street” Exercise...
KAY LAVERGNE JAZ: (Read more of Kay's description)
This is the ultimate fusion of all that is wonderful about improvisation. Everything on stage and that which I create is the “other”. There are people, places and things that morph into the land of my making by my 100% commitment to the movement, to the here and now. Intention collides with imagination all on the wave of trust that comes from the scary place of embracing the uncomfortable...

On this date in 1986 six theatre artists: Garrett Bennett, John Lawler, Brian Finney, Michael Rainey, Micha Rice, and Dave Skubinna, formally incorporated the name "Annex Theatre" with the Washington Secretary of State's Office, thus initiating what I'm sure none of them anticipated would be a tiny theatrical juggernaut, an artistic David to take on the institutional Goliaths of Seattle's regional and commercial theatre scene.

On Friday morning, nearly 30 years to the day, I found myself rolling up the I-5 corridor from Portland, enervated from too little sleep and energized by too much caffeine, racing to make it back to Seattle in time for the 2016 Mayor's Arts Awards presentation. Annex had been nominated, along with long-time Seattle-based visual artist Alfredo Arreguin and the venerable 40 year old comic publisher Fantagraphic Books, in the "Legacy Award" category, "recognizing an individual or organization with a rich and enlightening career in the arts, whose contributions have made for a more vibrant city." We were in the running with some undisputed heavy-hitters, but long history has taught me not to maintain too high of an expectation. After all, we were the underdog, and even with 30 years under our own belt, still the New Kid on this particular artistic block. So, I sat there in the assembled crowd inside the Armory Building, surrounded by the City's arts elite, along with a handful of Annex stalwarts: Catherine Blake Smith, Stephen McCandless, Pamala Mijatov, Nicole Stellner, and Scotto Moore, as speeches were made, poems read, and other awards distributed, waiting for our moment. When ACT Theatre Executive Director Carlo Scandiuzzi read our name as the recipient, I think he was even more surprised than we were - once again, our scrappy little fringe theatre had beaten the odds!

And that, in a nutshell, is a testament to the true legacy of what Annex represents: we've persevered against the odds for three solid decades, doing things in our own inimitable fashion, crawling around in the muck below the bellies of the big organizations, and carving out a niche in the larger theatrical ecosystem by providing a home for artists, thousands of them over the years, to hone their skills, develop their craft, create the art THEY want to create, and giving them a personal investment in the success - or failure - of the work we do by putting the decision-making process directly into their hands. It's an almost unheard of institutional aesthetic: that the artists themselves collectively determine what kind of art they want to commit themselves to creating, and one that I know from personal experience can be difficult for other artists to comprehend. It's not the way we were taught, and it's not supposed to work, but somehow, for 30 years we've managed to pull it off.

My personal contributions to that unprecedented success have been decidedly modest: I've only performed in a mere handful of the 400 some-odd productions that have come through our doors, directed just one, and this is most certainly not intended as a tooting of my own horn as it were. But, I do think my own journey exemplifies the spirit of what Annex has meant and continues to mean to entire generations of theatre artists, even if my perspective is singularly unique. I was there roughly at the beginning and have somehow managed to stick around all this time; I literally wear Annex on my skin and will continue to proudly display that symbol of personal commitment for as for as long as there's a company of artists gathered under that banner or until I breath my last (and possibly beyond - promises have been made, after all).

But, I'm just one person, and so many, many others have contributed to that legacy, some far more significantly than myself: every actor, director, playwright, technician, designer, volunteer, and patron who has ever walked through our doors; whether it was on Bainbridge, on 4th Avenue, in the various itinerant spaces we briefly occupied during our "wandering years", at CHAC, or for the past nine-plus years at 11th & East Pike; each and every single one shares in our success and has a stake in our future. It is my most fervent desire that generations of new, young, energetic, committed artists will be doing this for another 10, 20, even 30 years - and I for one would be overjoyed to be around for our 50th or 60th Anniversary Celebration.

So, Happy 30th Birthday Annex Theatre! Here's to many more years of Bold New Work!

Annex Theatre: Annex The World, Now And Always.

About the Bill and Peggy Hunt Playwrights Festival

The mission of the Bill and Peggy Hunt Playwrights Festival is to encourage, promote and showcase previously unproduced theater works written by Washington state residents.

The festival was named to honor Bill and Peggy Hunt’s dedicated services to theater and to Burien Actors Theatre (BAT) over 35 years and their role in founding BAT's Playwrights Festival.

Originally from Canada, the Hunts were familiar with Canadian play competitions and were instrumental in igniting this idea locally. The first staged competitions were theatrical, aimed more at fostering play production rather than writing, with entries from the greater Seattle area.

Later, Peggy Hunt suggested establishing a playwriting competition with winning shows to be produced by Burien Actors Theatre. The company has been producing this unique festival every two to three years since 1999.

About Burien Actors Theatre

Exciting live theater has been a tradition in Burien since 1955. Incorporated in 1980, Burien Actors Theatre has been a leading producer of quality live theater serving residents of the Seattle and south Puget Sound areas.

BAT gives audiences an intriguing and invigorating theater experience with unusual and fantastical productions they can’t see on film or see anywhere else. The company’s mission is to treat audiences to productions of the highest artistic integrity that excite, engage and involve both the local and expanding theatrical communities in the Puget Sound region.

BAT is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) entity and operates on revenue from ticket sales, donations, grants and sponsorships.
