Submissions for Theater Anonymous presents It's A Wonderful Life

The 14/48 Projects

About the project and the company

Theater Anonymous is an exciting, fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants evening of theater that celebrates Seattle’s amazing theater community. The premise is simple. Nobody knows the cast, not even the cast. Approximately 30 actors will be selected through an invitation process and each will rehearse one-on-one with the directors, never meeting their fellow actors. Actors must take an oath of secrecy and are allowed to tell only one other person on earth that they are participating. Actors enter the theater as patrons, sit with the audience until their first line, and deliver it from the audience before joining the rest of the cast onstage. This winter we will be re-mounting Its A Wonderful Life, based on the movie. The performance will be on Saturday, December 10th at the Cornish Playhouse and will be directed by Charlotte Peters. Although our script is an adaption of the movie, we do not maintain the tradition casting roles re: race, gender identity, etc. All roles are open to ANY actor.
