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.

Joy DeLyria and Kris Hambrick, producers

We are committed to diverse and creative casting.

Actors of color, gender non-conforming actors, and differently abled actors are encouraged to audition. We are not looking for impersonations, and a lengthy acting resume is not required. All are welcome to apply.

Character Breakdowns:
Lando Calrissian -- Due to the historic and cultural importance of the role, first preference will be given to black actors of any gender/age/size; actors of color are welcome and may be cast in all available roles
Yoda -- May be portrayed by an actor or by puppet

Auditions will consist of cold readings. Please be prepared to stay for the entire time; we will hold callbacks after hearing everyone.

We are also looking for creative people who want to be part of the process both on and off stage. Please stop by and share how you think you could contribute.

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.

Outdoor Trek 2017 Auditions: "Day of the Dove"

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.


Now in its seventh season, previous Star Trek episodes have been “The Naked Time," “This Side of Paradise,” "Devil in the Dark," "Mirror, Mirror," "Amok Time," and “Space Seed.” This year, we're presenting political thriller "Day of the Dove."


Who:
We need actors to fill all roles (except Kirk and Spock). We are committed to diverse and creative casting; we want the right person for the role, not the "right" race, gender, ethnicity, body type, or acting resume. All are welcome to apply. We are not looking for impersonation. We are looking for creative people who want to be part of the process both on and off stage.

When and Where:
 
Tuesday, March 28, 7-9pm, Studio I on the 4th floor of the Armory
Saturday, April 1, 5-7pm, Studio D on the 4th floor of the Armory

What: Auditions will consist of cold readings. Please be prepared to stay for the entire time; we may not need you for that long but we will be holding callbacks after hearing everyone. Auditions are also taking place on Saturday, April 1st, but you need attend only one session.
Performances will take place on four consecutive weekends at the end of July and beginning of August outside at Blanche Lavizzo Park.
