I think I was one of the first to find out (benefits of working at Interplayers), but I was reluctant to post it until everyone important heard the news...the other professional theatre of Spokane is closing its doors for good. It was a huge shock, even to those high up in management there. It's awful for us in the art community, and sad for me since I was hoping to audition next spring. I was really interested in meeting as many people as I could from the Spokane theatre scene.
I think that since the closing of Actors Rep was due to an external force these people will likely regroup and create something new -- hope so anyway! The biggest city between Seattle & Minneapolis NEEDS to have more than one professional theatre. I just hope it's soon!
RIP ARt :)
