Intergenerational Theatre Company
SilverKite's national award winning Intergenerational Theatre Company creates and performs original life-story based theatre productions which tour to senior living communities, schools, libraries, and community centers in the Puget Sound area of Washington state.
Our Intergenerational Theatre Company has performed and toured 9 productions since 2015. Over 10,000 people from babies - centenarians have seen our productions.
The development of our theatre productions starts with selecting a group of actors from the community. We hold open, public auditions for each production. Intergenerational Theatre Company actors are chosen for their ability to tell stories and authentically engage with the audience not only as actors, but as people. Each actor in our productions is in a different decade of life and is representative of different ethnic backgrounds.
After the actors are chosen, they share their personal stories inspired by a theme (which is also the title of the production) during the rehearsal process. The cast selects and stages some of these stories to include in the performance. The stories are then staged and pieced together.
We hope to see you at an upcoming performance! Interested in having our company of actors tour to your community? Contact us for more information.
Coming Soon - "Phoenix"
SilverKite will be auditioning actors for our upcoming touring production of "Phoenix" at the end of October 2021 - dates TBD. Rehearsals will begin the first full week of January and will be held one evening per week and on Saturday afternoons at the SilverKite office in Seattle through the end of March.
The production will be directed by Jen Kulik, SilverKite's Founder and CEO.
"Phoenix" will tour to area schools and senior living communities in the Seattle area from April - May 2022 on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Saturdays. We will do our best to work around actor / stage manager schedules to book the tour.
We will be hiring a stage manager and 4 actors for the production.
The stipend for the stage manager will be $1500 for the project. The stipend covers: 4-6 hours of auditions, 40 hours of rehearsal, running sound for 15 shows @ 45mins each.
Actors will receive a stipend of $1200. The stipend covers: 40 hours of rehearsal, 15 shows @ 45 mins each.
If we have requests to do more than 15 shows, the actors and the stage manager will each receive an additional $50 per performance.
"Phoenix" actors and stage manager will be required to be fully vaccinated before rehearsals begin.
Please contact us with questions or if you'd like to apply for the stage manager position or audition for us.
We look forward to hearing from you!
