Hello Earth Productions
Since 2010, Hello Earth has engaged Seattle audiences with live productions of Star Trek episodes in the park. Two years ago, we added Star Wars to our repertoire, with the same creative casting and DIY spirit we brought to Outdoor Trek!
Audition notice for Wars Outdoors: Return of the Jedi
For this summer’s live outdoor performances of Wars Outdoors: The Return of the Jedi by Hello Earth Productions

Just show up!
COVID PROTOCOLS ARE IN EFFECT. All participants will be required to show proof of vaccination and to wear masks when not actively auditioning.
We are committed to diverse and creative casting. The right person for the role will express the essence of their character(s), and will not necessarily conform to an expected race, gender, ethnicity, or body type. Actors of color, gender non-conforming actors, and actors with disabilities are encouraged to audition. We are not looking for impersonations, and a lengthy acting resume is not required. All are welcome to apply. We are a donation-funded non-profit theater company and offer a stipend of $100.
Auditions will consist of cold readings and a short movement exercise. Auditions may not go as late as listed, but please be prepared to stay for the entire time; we will hold callbacks after hearing everyone.
Performances will take place on all four consecutive weekends in August, both Saturdays and Sundays, outside at Dr. Blanche Lavizzo Park.
Hello Earth’s more-than-five-year mission is to excite and inspire audiences with our vibrant fusion of sci-fi and pop culture, to create strange new worlds and art that stimulates questions, to push beyond the boundaries of imagination with nontraditional casting and innovative stagecraft, and to boldly expand the frontiers of live theatrical experience.
2021 Season Announcement
Hello Fellow Earthlings!
With spring making itself known, and Seattle moving much of its activity outside, we know a lot of people are wondering: "when will Hello Earth and Wars Outdoors return?"
We are definitely excited about the final act in our trilogy and eager to bring Jabba the Hutt, the Ewoks, and Nien Nunb to life. However, we've thought long and hard about the choices we are asking cast, crew, and audience to make and have decided that we will NOT be presenting an outdoor, in person show this summer.
We know this is a disappointment, and believe us, it's a difficult thing to have to decide. But given the time required to put a show like ours on, we are typically beginning our process now. Doing so would by necessity force our partners to make decisions for themselves and their loved ones' safety that are not necessary for a labor of love like ours. Additionally, with numbers still rising in many parts of the country, we cannot responsibly make a decision now about how conditions will be in July and August, and therefore, cannot plan adequately without endangering the show.
Thank you for being with us on this journey, and for taking care of each other this past year. We will be back as soon as we can, and we hope you'll be on the look out for 2022's Return (at last!) of the Jedi as well as any other scaled-down events we might produce in the meantime.
