Please join MonoMyth for our first short play festival March 10-11 at the Pocket Theatre in Greenwood. We plan to explore the diversity of our community and what the impact of the recent election has been on the lives of individuals who feel their rights infringed upon and freedoms stifled.

We are looking for play submissions from a myriad of genres - comedy, drama and everything in between. Length should be anywhere between 2 minute monologues to 30 minute one-acts. We will be looking to put on 9-10 shows during the two day run. Shows should be for casts of no more than 3, and require minimal set and costumes. While there is no limit on subject matter, please avoid need for any mess on stage (the Pocket does not allow glitter, stage blood, or anything similar).

Please visit to submit your script for consideration.

We are also looking for directors for each of our short plays. We are looking for directors of all levels of experience and all walks of life. There will be one director per short play, so 9-10 directors total. The scripts will be assigned in early February, and you will be responsible for casting your show and going through the rehearsal process. There will be 3 sponsored rehearsals at TPS during the process - the first rehearsal, the middle of the rehearsal process and right before we open. All these will be full show rehearsals with all shows able to work together in a group.

Please review the below questions and send an email with your answers and your resume (if you have one!) to If you do not have a resume, please just send an email with your experience, etc.

-What is your background in the arts?

-What kind of play would you like to mount?

-What is important to you regarding the stories you want to tell?

-Do you have any conflicts in the months of February and March that would conflict with potential groups rehearsals? (We will be scheduling these rehearsals around all directors’ personal schedules.)

If you are interested in acting - please send us an email and let us know! Directors will be casting their own shows, but once our directors are chosen we will share the list of actors who are interested for first consideration.

There is no monetary compensation for this festival. However - all the resources of MonoMyth Theatre will be at your disposal. If you would like any of the staff to attend a rehearsal, or if you have questions, or if you just want to meet for coffee and discuss your show, we will be available. This showcase is to give you the chance and the platform to tell the story you want to tell - whether you are a writer, a director, or an actor. MonoMyth Theatre strongly encourages POC and LGBTQ writers and directors to apply.

Deadline for written submissions and director applications is January 25. Scripts and directors will be chosen within the next week, with the first group read through/rehearsal at the beginning of February. Please visit or email us with any questions - we look forward to reviewing your submissions and getting the chance to work with you!

Two Seattle Audition Workshops at Theater Puget Sound
with Atlantic Theater Co. director, teacher and author Karen Kohlhaas (bio below)

Saturday, January 14, 10am-5:30pm

Prepare for TPS and other monologue auditions with Karen's complete technique, used by actors and teachers all over the USA:
In this intensive one-day workshop you will learn to love monologues by learning to:

• DIRECT your monologues with clear staging that's fun to do and to watch
• ACT your monologues as truthfully with 'no one' as you can with a live partner
• AUDITION with great showmanship in your entrances, exits, and transitions

Actors will learn the entire technique by working on and finishing one monologue of your choice.
You will get feedback on monologue choices, and will do prep work from Karen's book in advance of the workshop.

"We'll say it: monologues are hard. Legendary director and teacher Kohlhaas addresses this stick in the actor's craw from
preparation to execution, demystifying one of the most difficult forms of theatrical audition." —BACKSTAGE

Sunday, January 15, 10am-5:30pm

Be an artist in the audition room! This class includes Karen's 10-point cold reading technique that shows you how to

• Commit right away—regardless of the amount of prep time
• Prioritize the prep time you do have
• Make strong choices that work for the style and genre of the script
• Connect with your partner/reader
• Have fun listening to and "riding" the script
• Trust your instincts, and engage your sense of play & adventure
• Have FUN with both cold and prepared auditions!
We will also work with my signature technique "How to walk in the audition room door" using BEFORE and AFTER
films of participants so you can see the (often huge) difference yourself.

“I had to cold read at an audition the other day with a casting director and she said, 'I can't believe you just got that side 2 minutes ago!'
I felt so confident in making bold instinctual choices, so thank you again." —Monica West

"I'm so happy I took your class! I start rehearsals for Les Liaisons Dangereuses at the Booth on Broadway!
I'm so excited and grateful! My entrances and exits were terrific because of you!!!!" —Joy Franz

For actors with previous training. TO ENROLL: Please email

Looking to fill a position for a director for an upcoming 10 day children's musical theatre production in South Everett.
This is a contract position: $18-$25 per hour. Time: 3:30-6:30pm, last week of January and first weekend in February. Monday through Friday.

Prefer someone with experience working with children and someone who has the chops to direct, lead music (with tracks, it is an MTI KIDS production!) and teach basic choreography. It is a program designed to encourage children to stay connected with drama their entire lives and while we typically put on fantastic shows, it is inevitably about fun and enjoyment. We produce, provide costumes, sets, etc.

We are always looking to hire teachers for our programs and would love to add you to our list!

The Taproot and Sanctuary Liaison is an employee of Taproot Theatre Company. Their job can be broken into two categories: sound mixer and building supervisor.

Sound Mixer: Whoever holds this position will have sufficient skills (determined by TTC) to set-up, run and teardown the sound equipment necessary for each service. This includes, but is not exclusive to: setting up monitors and microphones and patching them into the sound board, mixing the band for a clear sound both in monitors and in the house, running the light board, setting up the fold-up screen, setting up the projector and running playback music. The liaison will have sufficient knowledge (determined by TTC) of Taproot’s sound system including how to patch monitors and troubleshoot feedback. They will be in charge of the complete sound set-up of Taproot and Sanctuary equipment including monitors, microphones and music stands as well as their tear-down; they are not required to handle Sanctuary’s gear outside of the sound set-up including the slide computer.

Building Supervisor: The liaison is hired by Taproot for the purpose of supervising the building. This supervision includes, but is not exclusive to: turning on/off lights, alarming the building, unlocking doors, watching for potential damage to scenery, props and other TTC equipment and enforcing the rules and regulations stated in the contract between TTC and Sanctuary. As TTC’s building supervisor we expect the liaison to help Sanctuary problem solve or troubleshoot any situation that might arise related to their service that seemingly conflicts with TTC’s rules (i.e. placement of candles, blocking fire exits, artistic expressions); ultimately the attitude of the liaison is to mediate rather then dictate, except for reasons of safety to any person, equipment or production item in which case if no compromise can be made, the liaison has full authority to speak on behalf of TTC. As building supervisor, the liaison is not responsible to set-up, teardown or clean up any Sanctuary equipment (including nursery items or hospitality); however, the liaison is ultimately responsible for leaving the building exactly the way it was found. The liaison will write a weekly report that itemizes the events of the day as well as any situation, compromise or issue that arose that day.

This position is Sundays from 6am-12pm unless otherwise arranged (alternating Sundays with the other Liasion). Pay is $16.67 per hour. The position has two supervisors: Technical Director and Production Stage Manager. Liasion should be comfortable in a religious environment.

If interested, please submit a resume to Production Stage Manager, Abigail Pishaw at

Those who apply before December 18 will be given priority consideration.
