Jobs at Strawshop
Strawberry Theatre Workshop welcomes the opportunity to meet and collaborate with local artists. On average, half of every Strawshop cast and crew are artists new to the company. Unfortunately, current resources dictate that we do only do a few major projects each year, usually with a complete production company of twelve or smaller. As much as we would like to embrace the whole community, professional opportunities are scarce.
As a general philosophy, the most impressive asset a potential new collaborator brings to an interview or an audition is familiarity with the company's previous work and an understanding of its mission.
Strawberry Theatre Workshop is currently accepting applications for the following staff positions:

Strawshop is committed to paying dignified wages for professional work, a pledge in our mission described as the artist's Fair Share. Given the small number of opportunities, we hire actors through invited auditions only. We generate those invitations by actively following the work of artists in the Seattle community, and by seeking the advice of casting directors and production managers at fellow institutions.
Digital résumés for directors, actors, and designers are welcome at any time, but unsolicited physical résumés are discarded. Please click on the button above, or send to email@example.com.
Since 2004, Strawshop has produced nineteen plays--including one original play, three original adaptations, and two West Coast premieres. The development of new scripts, however, is not a core mission of the company.
Digital scripts and project proposals are welcome at firstname.lastname@example.org, with the caveat that the company always has far more ideas than it has production resources. We do not have a staff dedicated to reviewing submissions, so playwrights should not expect a reply. Physical script submissions will be discarded.
The Strawberry Theatre Workshop Board is made up of volunteers in the community that nurture the growth of the company's principal sources of support: audience and donors. The commitment is one meeting each month, and a promise to extend the public face of the organization into each member's community life.
Friends of the company interested in becoming trustees should attend as many of our plays as possible, then contact Strawshop by email, to talk to a Board member or be invited to a future meeting.
