Actors, Playwrights, Designers and Directors
We are a professional Canadian theatre and, presently, the largest working under the Independent Theatre Agreement (ITA). We almost always hire full Equity (CAEA) actors. We pay above Equity base rates as actors are expected to assist with the set-up and strike of the set, props and costumes while on tour. We audition and hire actors throughout the season, but do most of our auditioning in June and September. We audition for specific roles and hold general auditions every two years. To get an audition please do not approach us directly. Ask your agent to submit you when they receive a breakdown from us. If your agent has never received a breakdown, ask them to contact us and we’ll be happy to add them to our list. Do not assume that your agent will submit your name even if they do receive a breakdown.

In essence, we’re looking for world class TYA. We produce or present original dramatic literature for children. Our largest cast size is four plus a stage manager. Almost always our plays are in one act and run 50-54 minutes. We create productions with specific audiences in mind: Primary (Kindergarten to Grade 3), Junior (Grades 4-6, can play up to 7-8), High School (9-12, can play down to 7-8). Please refer to your target audience in your submission or say that you are unsure. Please submit a one or two page outline which would include the idea, the target audience, the cast size, the story, press reviews, production history and any additional details that you feel are necessary to Artistic Director, Andrew Lamb: .
