YOUTH AUDITIONS: The Clockwork Professor - Youth Summer Show at Seattle Public Theater

Seattle Public Theater

About the project and the company

Seattle Public Theater and the Seattle Public Education Department are excited to announce youth auditions for The Clockwork Professor by Maggie Lee. This production will be cast with teens and produced by professional Seattle theater artists, including director Gavin Reub. Seattle Public Theater’s Youth Advisory cohort selected The Clockwork Professor to relaunch summer youth theater at our space on Greenlake. This production will give youth performers the opportunity to work in a professional theater setting with seasoned artists.

About the Show

Professor Pemberton is a humble inventor, a quiet man of science. As political unrest sweeps over the great city of New Providence, buried secrets from his past threaten to destroy everything that he holds dear, and perhaps even the Crown itself. From romance to royal airships to roving inter-dimensional portals, join up with The Clockwork Professor in this action-packed adventure of fantastical science fiction with a steampunk twist!
