Director Opportunities for the TIPs Series with Edmonds Driftwood Players
Theatre of Intriguing Possibilities is looking for directors for its two shows in the 2018/19 Season.

The first show, in the fall, is Yankee Tavern written by Steven Dietz. Just when you thought you'd heard every crazy 9/11 conspiracy theory, a stranger walks into the Yankee Tavern. There, inside the walls of this crumbling New York tavern, a young couple finds themselves caught up in what might be the biggest conspiracy of all. Steven Dietz's acclaimed and already widely produced dramatic thriller—a selection of the National New Play Network's Continued Life Project—is a fierce, funny and ultimately mind-bending work of theatrical power that grips you until the final word. What you don't know can hurt you. This show will run October 18 – 28, 2018. Performances will be held Thursday, Friday, Saturday at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm.

The second show is scheduled for January 10 – 13, 2019. This Spotlight on New Works features a local playwright, James Lyle, whose original work, Red Planet Blue, will shine! Red Planet Blue is a full-length sci-fi comedy/drama that explores the consequences when our technological ambitions disrupt the complex web of systems—personal, social, and cultural—that govern our lives. As the commander and crew of a remote terraforming station nervously prepare for the moment they will press “the big red button”, remaking a desert planet into an earthly paradise, their work is complicated by the arrival of a sleazy reality-TV producer determined to capture the historic moment, and a government inspector with her own doubts about the project and a troubled history with the station’s commander. When a crewmember is mysteriously killed, this isolated group must determine the cause--a simple technological failure? Or has their attempt to reshape a world awakened something with a power beyond our understanding?

Interested directors should email the TIPs Executive Producer, Diane Jamieson for an appointment at: Please plan to submit a resume and a letter explaining your vision for the show. Interviews will be scheduled for July 17 or 18.

Over the three week workshop, actors grouped into pairs will work in front of the class once each weekend and have the option to book time in the space for private work or tutorials. Each session will consist of a short group exercise or warmup, three scenes worked for an hour each, and a closing discussion about craft topics that emerged in the scene study.

The Lab will be moderated by Logan Ellis (Theatre Battery Artistic Director, Yale MFA Director) and Joshua Hamilton (University of Florida MFA Actor), with guest teaching artists joining each weekend in a master class format.

Participation is free, with 12 applicants being admitted to act in the lab. The selected class will come from a diverse range of backgrounds, identities, and experience levels; all interested actors are encouraged to apply, or email to inquire further. Both students and professional actors will be represented in the lab. It is ideal that applicants are available to attend all six lab sessions. All sessions will be open to outside observers and the public.

Each team will face a special challenge that will diversify their piece in structure from the rest of the program. Four to five short plays will be produced.

The Artist's Way Classes in Seattle are Now Open for Registration for Fall Quarter 2018

The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron is an international bestseller on the subject of creativity. Whether you see yourself as an artist or not, this book and class can be an incredibly useful resource to tap into your creative side which can benefit many parts of your lives. Led by Creativity Instructor Kate Gavigan, the 2 hour a week 12 week long class will take students through the 12 chapters with an emphasis on the accompanying chapter exercises and additional creativity exercises and strategies (i.e. meditation tools). This material can work with anyone, no matter how dormant or energized their creative life may be.

Julia Cameron uses three basic tools for students to enhance their lives and their creativity: morning pages (writing 3 pages longhand of stream of consciousness writing), artist's dates (solo fun dates with yourself) and completing creativity exercises at the back of each chapter. Students report that as a result of going through our Artist's Way class they more fully and genuinely know themselves, they discover or re-discover their gifts and talents and have more fun and joy in their lives.

To quote Julia, "In order to retrieve your creativity, you need to find it." The basic tools and the additional creativity exercises that we incorporate into the 12 week course can help you do just that. No prerequisites required for this class.  Maximum 11 students per class.

Section 1: September 24 – December 10
Mondays, 6:30 - 8:30 pm
Instructor:  Kate Gavigan

Location: Class held in Wallingford at Windows Art Gallery, 4131 Woodland Park Ave. N., Seattle

For Testimonials from past students:

"I was hoping to learn how to keep myself focusing on my own creativity and not short-change myself. The class was vastly helpful in that. The class was very useful to me as an artist and as a person. Kate is an amazing teacher." - Cora A., Spring 2017 Artist's Way Student

Kate Gavigan is passionate about The Artist's Way having seen the positive changes in her students' lives and having personally experienced the benefits of the materials. Kate worked in social services as a trainer for over 10 years when she found herself drawn to the material in The Artist's Way, which helped her uncover a passion for theatre and the arts. She credits her mid-life career change (now working at her dream jobs as an Artist's Way Instructor and Speaker, a Creativity Coach, a Home Organizer and pursuing her interest in Acting) to having gone through The Artist's Way.
