This Week At Eclectic Theater: Hari Kondabolu’s New Material Scratch Nights, More Than Anything Else Is Close To Nothing, and How to Turn a Non-Union Offer into a UNION Job!


Hari Kondabolu’s New Material Scratch Nights

Tonight and Tomorrow at 7:30 and 9:30pm!

After a sold-out album release show at the Neptune Theatre last month, Hari Kondabolu returns to Seattle for FOUR New Material shows at Eclectic Theater! Watch Hari begin the process of working on a new hour of material in the city where he started. Expect a night of mixed reactions, near disasters and genuinely funny improvised moments for a more than reasonable $7 advance and $10 at the door on Thursday April 24th and Friday April 25th at 7:30 and 9:30 pm each night.


PLEASE NOTE: Tonight’s 7:30 and Tomorrow Nights 9:30pm shows are SOLD OUT!



More Than Anything Else Is Close To Nothing

South Side Sunday Company

As a child, Joselito Castillo had a pastime of collecting sounds and conversations often without the knowledge of his family and friends. Inspired by a tape recorder from the 1970’s that he found in a basement, he captures a moment in the lives of each dancer and explores them through movement. Part diary, part history, these are honest conversations; audio snapshots of exactly where each person was at that moment in their lives. This show explores universal themes of the human experience: relationships, communication, aging, and community. It is an invitation to the dancers and the audience to share our stories, our truths and to support one another in our unique and shared experiences. 

Saturday and Sunday @ 8pm.

Tickets are on sale NOW through Brown Paper Tickets. Tickets will be $17 plus a processing fee. Seating is limited each night – buy your tickets early!

How to Turn a Non-Union Offer into a UNION Job!

Presented by Sheldon Smith
SAG-AFTRA Washington–Mid Atlantic Local Member and Award-winning Voiceover Artist

When: 5 – 7 p.m., Sunday, April 27, 2014

Has this ever happened to you?

• A producer calls you and dangles money (a job) in front of you only to add “but it’s got to be non-union.”

• A producer calls you directly, having heard or seen your demo. You ask them to call your agent only to NEVER hear from them again.

• A producer you’ve worked with before calls and asks if there’s any chance you’ll work “off the card just this once.”

Award-winning voiceover artist Sheldon Smith will show you how to turn a non-union offer into a UNION job. Sheldon, a SAG-AFTRA member and union activist since 1965, has been teaching this successful seminar across the country for several years. His workshop has helped countless union performers enhance their careers using his methods. The methods presented can help you understand the dynamics of negotiating the above mentioned scenarios and provide the tools you need, even down to the script, to do so!

This information will ONLY be available if you attend the seminar and will NOT be reproduced, so don’t miss out!

PLEASE NOTE: The information in this workshop pertains to principal performers only, both on-camera and voiceover. The techniques discussed do NOT work for background performers.

Please RSVP to Chris Comte at: (206) 282-2506 or by April 25, 2014.

This event is offered as a benefit to SAG-AFTRA Seattle Local members in good standing — no guests are allowed. Parents/guardians of performers under 18 years old are welcome. SAG-AFTRA members, please bring your membership card (paid thru April 30, 2014) for admittance.
