Back over a 100 this year.

Here are the rules (updated 2017 edition) followed by the list.

0. If you disagree with my rules, come up with your own.
1. Each separately ticketed event counts as a show. For example, Friday night at 14/48 counts as 1, not 7. Friday and Saturday night of 14/48 counts as two.
2. Shows I see more than once still count as one.
3. Shows I participate in (as an actor/director/crew) count, but again only as one (see rule #2).
4. Musicals count, but music concerts don't. Dance-icals and dance-dramas count. Operas count too. Ballets and other dance shows don't.
5. One man/woman shows count, but lectures/demonstrations don't.
6. Improvs, sketch comedy, short play festivals – all count (see rule #1 regarding short play festivals), but stand-up comedy shows don't.
7. Staged readings count.
8. If I have to (or choose to) leave a show before it’s over, it counts if I saw at least half of it.
9. Shows in all languages count – even if I don't understand the language, as long as all other rules are satisfied.
10. If a show stops in the middle (other than intermission) for a promotional message, which interrupts the story telling, the show does not count. Fund raisers or award shows with a performance component, or religious events with a theatrical component, all fall in this category.
11. Live or recorded broadcasts of shows being performed elsewhere do not count.
12. Reading or performance of excerpts from a play for promotional purposes do not count.

Playlist Seattle presents original plays and performance pieces inspired by Seattle’s music. In March 2018, we are producing a series of performances entitled Women Who Rock, which will highlight the music of Brenda Xu, Prom Queen and The Black Tones.

We are seeking short (5-8 min) scripts based on songs from these artists to be produced as part of this exciting series. We expect to present 4-6 pieces for each musical artist, with a total of 12-20 produced during the course of the run. Each piece will be staged at least twice.

Scripts that are chosen for production will be awarded a $40 honorarium.

Guidelines for submission:
•   Please submit plays in pdf form to by Monday, January 29, 2018. We will choose plays within the following week, with rehearsal set to begin February 5.

•   Along with your script, please include the following with you submission:
        - current resume/CV
         - in the body of your email, give the title of the song the piece is inspired by, a short synopsis (no more than 100 words) and character breakdown

•   You can find each artist’s catalog of songs at the following links:

•   When choosing songs, please keep to those written by the artists, not covers they may have recorded.

Some Info about our productions:
•   The work Playlist Seattle does is to celebrate and honor the city’s musicians. We do not attempt a literal dramatization of a song’s lyrics or story, however, we also do not stray too far from the theme or ethos of the piece. A good example would be Alice in Chains song “The Rooster”. We did not present a story about Vietnam/Jerry Catrell’s father/A giant male chicken. Instead, we explored warfare of the not-so-distant-future, based on the use of drone soldiers.

•   We most often do not produce our shows at traditional theatre spaces. As with any evening of one-acts, complicated sets or special effects are not typically possible. That said, if there is a key element to your story that goes beyond the barebones, we’ll be happy to see how we might make it happen within our DIY aesthetic.

•   Some examples of our work can be found at the following links:
With Kris Orlowski at Bumbershoot 2015
Piece inspired by Kryptonite Couch by Jamie Nova
Piece inspired by Nutshell by Alice in Chains

REBATEnsemble is looking for stage managers for our 2018 season.

Duties include but are not limited to:

Running the rehearsal room
Supervising safety concerns
Sending daily rehearsal notes email
Attending production meetings
Scheduling rehearsal time with cast
Point of contact for directors, designers, cast, and crew.

We are currently looking for additional stage managers to support our 2018 season. Our upcoming projects include readings, workshops, plays and musical productions. We are most interested in individuals available in January, February, September and August. Some commitments are 2 weeks, some are 1-2 months. We may be able to resolve schedule conflicts, our Production Manager and Assistant Stage Manager are available to provide additional support if needed. Some positions include a stipend. We can also assist with earning college credit.

Please contact us with any questions, we'd like to get to know you and find out if you're a good fit for our company.

About us:
REBATEnsemble (Recession-Era Broke-Ass Theatre Ensemble) started in 2011 as a UW student-led alternative to costly theatre in expensive venues. Bringing our unconventional approach to everything we do, we’ve done shows in carpet factories, cafes, parks and teahouses. Our cast and crew have always played an integral part in crafting our scripts and actors’ contributions have led to some of  our best works. Since then, we’ve grown and refined our craft, our members having gone on to other positions in the theatre industry (a few have even become film and TV actors in Hollywood) but REBATEnsemble remains a passion project, largely due to our unique approach to theatre. As we look to the future, we’ll continue blending forms, shattering the fourth wall and playing with fire.

If interested, please send your name, availability and contact information to

Wheatland Theatre Co. in Davenport WA seeks a music director and choreographer for our upcoming production of Oklahoma!

Key dates
May TBD: Ensemble dance rehearsals begin (1-2 days/wk)*
June 10: Full rehearsals begin (6 days/wk—evenings weekends)
July 17-23: Performances

*Because of the range of experience levels of our casts, we hope to give our local ensemble some advance rehearsals and are ideally looking for a Northwest-based choreographer who can travel to Davenport 1-2 days per week (with housing provided and travel expenses reimbursed), but this is flexible.

Competitive fee DOE, plus travel and housing as applicable.

About us
WTC is the only nonprofit arts organization in Lincoln County, WA—a county with 10,000 people in an area twice the size of Rhode Island. Lincoln County is the country’s #2 producer of wheat. It’s the least racially, religiously, and politically diverse county in the State of Washington—which is exactly why we think it’s important to do theatre there… and why we’re particularly interested in hiring artists of color or with other diverse backgrounds. Spokane is the closest city, about 45 minutes away.

WTC is a community theatre, and our casts are often made up of middle-aged farmers and teachers who have never been onstage before (yes, there will be real-life “farmers and cowmen” in this cast). Three years ago, we launched a guest artist program, which brings a small number of professional theatre artists from around the country to mentor and work alongside local volunteers on one production a year.

The show

Other guest artists for Oklahoma! include a director (Lee Mikeska-Gardner, artistic director of The Nora Theatre Company, a mid-sized Equity company in the Boston area), one designer, and two actors (at least one on an AEA Guest Artist contract).

While we are still developing the concept for this production, we hope to create a fresh, story-driven take on this classic story that will subvert expectations about what a community theatre production of Oklahoma! in a town of 1,700 people looks like. One aspect we are exploring is connecting the story to the local community. As part of this, we are interested in possibly developing an acoustic/bluegrass/Americana-inspired orchestration to this classic score.

To apply
Please email Managing Director Drew Kowalkowski at with a résumé and a note expressing your interest and relating your experience to this project.

Fantastic.Z Theatre is looking for designers for our 2018 season!

Here are the details for our 2018 main stage shows:

Five Lesbians Eating a Quiche by Andrew Hobgood and Evan Linder
Performs:  May 18th – June 2nd (Thursdays – Saturdays)
At: The Ballard Underground (2220 NW Market St, Seattle, WA 98107)

The Story: 
In 1956, the widows of the Susan B. Anthony Society for the Sisters of Gertrude Stein meet in a renovated community center for their annual breakfast, where the prize-winning quiche will be declared in a much-anticipated ceremony. The sudden threat of an atomic bomb forces the women in this idyllic American town to begin sharing their deepest secrets, which lead to some not-so-shocking confessions from the society’s leaders.

Script: We’ve just ordered the scripts so we don’t have them uploaded yet, but for now here’s an excerpt of it from Samuel French:

Rehearsals start: April 2nd
Load-In: May 12th
Strike: June 3rd

Seven Homeless Mammoths Wander New England by Madeline George
Performs:  September 28th – October 13th (Thursdays – Saturdays)
At:  Inscape Arts and Cultural Center (815 Seattle Blvd S, Seattle, WA 98134)

The Story: 
Dean Wreen is not having a good week. Her college is in dire financial straits and a plan to close its tiny, all-but-forgotten natural history museum is sending unexpected shock waves through the local community. At home, her ex-lover is staying with her - sending shock waves of a different sort through her relationship with her current (and much younger) girlfriend. Town-gown relations are in tatters! The local newspaper is erupting in violent protest! Even the historically inaccurate dioramas in the museum have started mouthing off. A screwball comedy about the perils of monogamy, certainty, and academic administration.

Script: We’ve just ordered the scripts so we don’t have them uploaded yet, but for now here’s an excerpt of it from Samuel French:

Rehearsals Start: August 12th 
Load-In:  September 22nd         
Strike:  October 14th

Designers will be compensated for their work in the form of a stipend.
Please send all resumes and inquiries to:
