Support The Schmee!
Theater Schmeater can always use your help to produce great plays simply. Being a small theater in a big city means donations are always very much appreciated!
All contributions make an immense impact in providing the BEST intimate, quality theater in Seattle! You may not know this: ticket sales make up only 40% of our revenue. For the rest we rely on the support and generosity of our friends.

Theater Schmeater's Artistic Director, Casting Director, or a representative attend Theater Puget Sound (TPS) general auditions every year. We cast from those auditions, actors who have worked for us before and actors who have been brought in by individual directors. In addition, the Artistic Director, Artistic Associate, and Casting Director attend many shows in Seattle throughout the year and often call in actors based on work they see in those shows.
Some roles are pre-cast in Theater Schmeater productions. We will always make clear which roles those are in each production. Final casting decisions are made primarily by the director, with input and approval from the Artistic Director and Casting Director.
At this time we are able to hire only non-equity actors.
At Theater Schmeater we are always looking for designers who are talented and ambitious. A designer who is capable and willing to deliver something special for the production. A designer who is able to look within and challenge themselves at every turn. But most importantly a designer who wants to have fun! If this is you, please send a resume and some examples of past work firstname.lastname@example.org
The Artistic Director selects all directors for Theater Schmeater productions. With very few exceptions, directors are hired only if the Artistic Director has seen their work elsewhere. If you are interested in directing at Theater Schmeater, please notify the Artistic Director in writing as to when your work can be seen and send a letter of interest along with a resume to Theater Schmeater
