Seattle Rep's Public Works Current Leadership
Angie Kamel (she/her)
Public Works Director 2018–present
Angie has the best job in the world. She began her career in San Diego working with such companies as La Jolla Playhouse, The Old Globe, San Diego Repertory Theatre, La Jolla Music Society, Mo’olelo, Moxie, and UCSD’s Department of Theater and Dance. Upon moving to Seattle about a decade ago, she worked in Seattle Rep’s production department before moving back to Southern California to serve as the Institute Manager for Cornerstone Theater Company, a 35-year-old community-centered organization based in Los Angeles. It was there she was able to realize her dream of making excellent theater with and for everyone. She worked alongside some of the most innovative theater-makers in the country to create mutually beneficial partnerships with a wide range of communities, fostering collaborative art-making between artists of various levels of experience. Locally, she has worked at Seattle Opera, helped open the Federal Way Performing Arts & Events Center, and led artistic engagement strategies for ACT. Angie holds a B.F.A from the University of Arizona and an M.F.A. from the University of California, San Diego. She is a foster parent, an immigrant, and a lover of pastries.
