Washington Ensemble Theatre Auditions
Washington Ensemble Theatre
About the project and the company
Washington Ensemble Theatre will be accepting submissions for our 2023 winter production of Arlington by Enda Walsh.
Washington Ensemble Theatre Mission Statement:
Through collaborative artistic leadership, Washington Ensemble Theatre creates audacious stories for adventurous Seattle audiences.
Isla waits for her number to be called. A young woman finally understands her fate. And a young man faces a stark decision. In a cacophony of poetry, art, + dance, Enda Walsh’s Arlington tells an unsuspecting love story amidst a bleak Orwellian dystopia.
All actors should feel comfortable using an Irish dialect. There will be a Dialect Coach provided.
*Rehearsals are usually Monday – Friday 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm. This might change based on the needs of the room.
*Performances and rehearsals will be at 12th Avenue Arts on Capitol Hill.
