Casting announced for coming season

July 29th, 2011 by Seattle Repertory Theatre

Nick Garrison will star in I Am My Own Wife.

We’re happy to announce many of the very talented artists who will be on stage and behind the scenes for the coming season.

 

Actors include many Seattle theatre stalwarts, including Nick Garrison, Michael Patten, and Alban Dennis; some up-and-coming local actors like Conner Toms; and nationally renowned performers Linda Gehringer, Lorenzo Pisoni, and Denis Arndt.

“Keeping ‘Seattle’ in ‘Seattle Rep’ has been my mantra for my tenure so far as artistic director,” said Seattle Rep artistic leader Jerry Manning. “This season showcases some of the city’s best, and also brings in a few of our favorites from out of town to play with the amazing talent we have here. I can’t wait to see what these artists are going to create on our stages.”

Behind the scenes, designers and directors are largely Seattle artists. Most notably, actor R. Hamilton Wright will make his Seattle Rep directorial debut with Sylvia, revisiting a play he acted in at Seattle Rep in 1996.

Manning has also announced that costume designer Constanza Romero will become Seattle Rep’s artist-in-residence for this season. In addition to designing for Clybourne Park, she will participate in the season planning process and serve as a community ambassador. Most recently, Romero designed for Seattle Rep’s The Brothers Size and Dancing at Lughnasa. She was nominated for a Tony Award for her design of Fences on Broadway, a play by her late husband, August Wilson, also a long-time Seattle Rep collaborator.z

The season kicks off Sept. 30 with Humor Abuse, starring Lorenzo Pisoni. Pisoni appeared in Seattle Rep’s Tuesdays with Morrie and The Great Gatsby. On Broadway he was in Equus. He also performed with Cirque du Soleil.z
