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 touring its Intergenerational Theatre Company production of "Phoenix" in the fall of 2022.  At this time, we intend that this production will be done in person, pending guidance from the CDC.  All members of the cast / crew must be fully vaccinated by the time rehearsals begin.  

This production is funded by a Group Arts Grant from 4Culture.

Auditions

Interested in auditioning for us? Auditions will be held in late June or early July 2022.  Audition dates TBD.  Click here to be notified when audition dates are scheduled. 

 

Rehearsal Schedule

Rehearsals for "Phoenix" will be held from August 29 - October 5, 2022 on the following days / times.  All rehearsals will take place at the SilverKite office (40th & Aurora) in Seattle.

Mondays:  6 - 8:30pm

Wednesdays:  6 - 8:30pm

Saturdays:  1 - 4pm

The production will be directed by Jen Kulik, SilverKite's Founder and CEO.

Tour

"Phoenix" will tour to area schools and senior living communities in the greater Seattle area from October 8 - November 12, 2022 on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Saturdays. 

 

We will do our best to work around actor / stage manager schedules to book the tour, but we will need to schedule some performances during the day on Mondays and Tuesdays.  The tour schedule will be set before rehearsals begin.

Compensation

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, and a travel stipend.

If we have requests to do more than 15 shows, the actors and the stage manager will each receive an additional $50 per performance. 

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!
