Seattle Musical Theatre, now in its 39th season of producing high-quality musical theatre, is in need of a Master Electrician to assist us with our lighting design for our upcoming production of LITTLE WOMEN: THE MUSICAL.

This team member will work with our Lighting Designer to realize the concepts and practical aspects needed to light the show. The production opens on February 17th; with lighting calls beginning some time within the next few weeks. Scheduling allows for flexibility, as well as offering an honorarium for their support.

Please send your inquiries and resume to SMT's Production Manager, Michelle Ouhl, at production@seattlemusicaltheatre.org. Also, visit us on social media (i.e. Facebook, Twitter), as well as check out our website (www.seattlemusicaltheatre.org), for additional information and to find out more about all things SMT!

TWO SEATTLE AUDITION WORKSHOPS January 14 & 15
with Atlantic Theater Co. director, teacher and author Karen Kohlhaas (bio below)
at Theatre Puget Sound

Saturday, January 14
MONOLOGUE MASTER CLASS
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, using Practical Aesthetics* acting technique
• 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.

Full Participation - $150 [this level is now full but you can join waiting list, or take audit level]
Audit (Observer) - $75
For actors with previous training.
TO ENROLL: Please send pic/resume or description of training/experience to  info@art-and-audition.com

"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
FEARLESS COLD READING
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
• Apply Practical Aesthetics* acting technique to your cold readings for power and simplicity
• 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.

Full Participation - $125 - Limited space available
Audit (Observer) - $65
For actors with previous training.
TO ENROLL: Please send pic/resume or description of training/experience to info@art-and-audition.com

“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

Can't do these, but want to hear about future Seattle/NW workshops?

You'll also receive a free chapter from her newest book.

She has directed multiple mainstage productions at Atlantic, and also at the Public Theatre, Ensemble Studio Theatre, Ars Nova, St. Luke's Theatre, New York Live Arts, Naked Angels, the Culture Project, the 24 Hour Plays on Broadway, regionally, and in the UK and Australia. Karen's books and DVD are

*PRACTICAL AESTHETICS is an acting technique and philosophy developed and taught by playwright David Mamet and actor William H. Macy.
Mamet and Macy taught the technique to New York University students who would become the founders of the Atlantic Theater Company in the 1980's.
The technique emphasizes extreme focus and simplicity, making it a powerful tool when applied both to scenework and to audition technique. Over the last 30 years, Atlantic has become an acclaimed Off-Broadway theater, and the Atlantic Acting School has trained thousands of actors through NYU and in their own programs. Past students and grads include Atlantic company members Clark Gregg, Felicity Huffman, Maggie Kiley, Kristen Johnston and Jason Ritter; and, Rose Byrne, Eddie Cahill, Edwina Findley, Simon Helberg, Jessica Alba, Zoe Lister-Jones, Eloise Mumford, Matt Fox, Elizabeth Olsen, and many more.

Dropped below a 100 shows this year - for the first time in many years. Such are the highs and lows of life.

Here are the rules (updated 2016 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.

Now here's the list:

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 www.monomyththeatre.com 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 monomyththeatre@gmail.com. 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 www.monomyththeatre.com or email us monomyththeatre@gmail.com 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
MONOLOGUE MASTER CLASS

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
FEARLESS COLD READING

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 info@art-and-audition.com

Want to hear about future Seattle/NW workshops?
Join Karen's newsletter list at www.art-and-audition.com/contact-newsletter/
You'll also receive a free chapter from her newest book.

Karen Kohlhaas is a director, teacher, filmmaker and author. She's a founding member of the Atlantic Theater Company, a senior teacher at the Atlantic Acting School, and a master teacher of the Practical Aesthetics Acting Technique. Since 1993 Karen has also specialized in monologues and audition technique, showing actors how to be artists in the audition room. She has directed multiple mainstage productions at Atlantic, and also at the Public Theatre, Ensemble Studio Theatre, Ars Nova, St. Luke's Theatre, New York Live Arts, Naked Angels, the Culture Project, the 24 Hour Plays on Broadway, regionally, and in the UK and Australia. Karen's books and DVD are

• How to Choose a Monologue for Any Audition
• The Monologue Audition Teacher's Manual
• The Monologue Audition Video (DVD)

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!

Please send an email and resume to:
jordyn@edgeartsanddance.com

Thanks!
