Over three seasons, we get to watch our graduate acting students grow as artists. In their third year, they prepare for the Showcase Audition Tour (Seattle, LA,and NY), a major part of their education at UW. Showcase marks our students' graduation from the Professional Actor Training Program and serves to launch their careers in the performing arts.

Our actors are entrepreneurs. They start businesses, take risks, and make bold leaps in the name of theatre. Acting, like any start-up business, needs investors.

Our Invest in an Actor program provides students with food, housing, and transportation during the Showcase tour, as well as helps to cover the costs of resumes, headshots, film reel production, promotional materials, and rehearsal and performance space fees.

Launch a successful journey and foster a unique relationship between you and our students – Invest in an Actor.
