Seattle Repertory Theatre today announced that after an extensive national search, the organization has hired Angie Kamel as the next Public Works Seattle Director. Adapted from the nationally recognized model built by New York City’s prestigious The Public Theater, Public Works Seattle creates theatre of the people, by the people, and for the people of our region, and seeks to engage audiences in new ways by making them creators and not just spectators. Under the direction of founding program director Marya Sea Kaminski, the program kicked off at Seattle Rep in 2016. Kamel will take the lead on the program’s next steps, getting to work this summer on growing community engagement programs, partnerships and more, all set to culminate in a community-wide production of As You Like It in the Bagley Wright Theatre in September 2019.
