Get Working: Seattle Theatre

“Where are shows produced, and where should I send my headshot, resume, and cover letter?” And, yes, do all three. A cover letter is a great way to add a personal touch to your submissions.

Some casting directors do not solicit for submissions, and many attend the TPS Unified General Auditions, but that should not prevent you from taking an active role in your career and sending out those headshots which might be gathering dust!

So…where should you submit? Everwhere! I am certain you can go online and find out just who is auditioning when (and that is a good point – if you are able to find out a theatre’s season before all the shows are cast, then you can read the plays and “submit yourself” for the most appropriate parts), but I am going to list a few places and names to save you a bit of trouble. This list is by no means exhaustive, but should give you a start!
