Seattle Rep Announces Casting for Four Shows in 13-14 Season
Actors include Darragh Kennan, Michael Winters and newcomer Hannah Mootz
Single tickets on sale Sept. 3

Seattle, WA – Seattle Repertory Theatre announced today casting for four of its upcoming productions in the 2013-2014 season, which begins Sept. 27. Actors include Seattle theatre mainstays Darragh Kennan (Clybourne Park), Michael Winters (Inspecting Carol), Charles Leggett (American Buffalo) and Marianne Owen (Good People), as well as Rep newcomers Hannah Mootz, Steven Epp, and Allen Gilmore.

“This season we are thrilled to be working with some of the best actors Seattle has to offer,” commented Artistic Director Jerry Manning. “I’m particularly excited to see Darragh Kennan take on the iconic role of Sherlock Holmes and young actress Hannah Mootz tackle the tour-de-force role of Bo-Nita. I’m also looking forward to introducing Seattle audiences to Steven Epp and Allen Gilmore in The Servant of Two Masters; I consider them comedic geniuses.”

The season opens with a witty new adaptation of Carlo Goldoni’s classic masterpiece The Servant of Two Masters, followed by three world premieres: Elizabeth Heffron’s Bo-Nita, David Pichette’s and R. Hamilton Wright’s adaptation of The Hound of the Baskervilles, and Samuel D. Hunter’s A Great Wilderness. Cornish College graduate Hannah Mootz makes her Rep debut in Bo-Nita, a one-woman show with seven challenging roles. In the all-Seattle cast of Hound, Darragh Kennan and Andrew McGinn will co-star as Sherlock Holmes and John Watson, respectively, with supporting roles performed by Charles Leggett, Basil Harris, and Marianne Owen. Michael Winters headlines the cast of Wilderness as Walt, a man who is forced to confront his own demons after counseling a teenage boy.

The Rep had previously announced directors Christopher Bayes (The 39 Steps, The Doctor in Spite of Himself), Allison Narver (Boeing Boeing, Or,) Braden Abraham (Photograph 51, The Glass Menagerie), and Paul Budraitis. This will be Budraitis’ first time directing at the Rep. Behind the scenes, frequent Rep collaborators Jennifer Zeyl, Deborah Trout, Scott Bradley, and L.B. Morse will return as designers.

Additional casting for the 2013-2014 season will be released at a later date. Single tickets go on sale Sept. 3 online at www.seattlerep.org or through the Box Office at 206-443-2222 (Toll-free 1-877-900-9285). Prices start at $15 (or $12 for ages 25 and under). Season tickets are available now.
