Board of Directors
Book-It Repertory Theatre is a non-profit service organization that seeks board members to help further its mission to transform great literature into great theatre, through simple and sensitive production, and to inspire its audiences to read. Through its mainstage and arts education programs, the theatre reaches approximately 75,000 adults and youth across Washington State annually.
Board members are desired to serve as ambassadors for the organization, helping to connect the community with Book-It and its programs, and providing financial and strategic leadership. The Board of Directors meets monthly and members typically participate on at least one standing committee per year. An annual financial commitment is required as is assistance recruiting guests to events and shows.
Ushers assist the House Manager in light duties, which may include scanning tickets, handing out programs, helping people to their seats, selling concessions items, and tidying up the theatre after the show.
All volunteer ushers get to see the show they usher. However, if the show sells out and no seats are available, ushers may sit in the lobby and watch the show on live feed.

Projects may include assisting the Marketing & Communications, Development, or Education departments in assembling mailings and or informational packets, advertisement materials distribution, or other projects. Please let us know if you have special skills or areas of interest.
Book-It often hosts special events to engage with our community and get to know our patrons and donors. We can often use assistance with setup, food and wine service, and cleaning up. And you might just get to listen in on a talkback with an author whose work you love or a panel of experts who can illuminate a book for you in a new way.

About our Internship Program
Our Internship Program gives participants hands-on experience in the world of professional theatre. Interns are mentored by Book-It staff members to help them increase their skills in their given areas and get practical experience in the theatre as a whole. Book-It is searching for reliable, self-motivated, committed people who have acquired basic skills in their area of interest but wish to enhance their learning, their resumes, and their experience.
Book-It is not currently looking for interns as of June 2020.
Book-It Repertory Theatre is an Equal Opportunity Employer. Book-It Repertory Theatre is committed to supporting a diverse work force. Qualified applicants are considered for all positions without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, citizenship, age, marital status, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, political ideology, or any other legally protected status.
Questions? Please contact Education Director Gillian Jorgensen.
Ususally, Book-It holds general auditions each spring/summer for the next season. The dates and times of these auditions can be found on Theatre Puget Sound. Based on these general auditions, we hold call-back auditions for each production, individually. We have limited number of AEA slots for each season; other performers are paid minimum wage.
We regret that we were unable to host in-person auditions in the Spring of 2020. If you would like to be considered for our 2020-21 all-audio season, please send a vocal audition with your headshot and résumé to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Guidelines for submission:
- Read a passage, approximately 1 minute in length, from a book that you love. Pick a work that showcases your natural voice and/or your vocal range.
- Keep in mind that your whole reading, including narration, is a performance. The Book-It Style is more active than an audio book.
- Please, save your file as an mp3 or m4a, and title it with your first and last name. For example: JaneEyre.mp3
We will be in touch if we have an opportunity that suits your voice.
