Audition, Industry Listing.

NEW IDEAS FESTIVAL March 6-24th 2019

Actors (non-union) of all ages (18+), genders and ethnicities are needed for New Ideas Festival 2019 (NIF), a three-week juried festival of 15 new works running March 6 - 24, 2019. A program of four different plays will be presented each week, running from Wednesday to Sunday, with a staged reading at noon on each Saturday.

NIF encourages actors from diverse communities to audition; this year NIF has roles calling for non-binary actors.

General Festival Auditions:
January 5 & 6, 2019 - daytime
January 7 & 8, 2109 - evening
Callbacks the third week of January

Actors must be available for rehearsals beginning January 28, 2019

Important Audition Information:
Auditions will be booked according to age and gender, so actors should keep all the audition dates free until they receive an audition time.
Actors will be asked to prepare a two-minute monologue of their choice PLUS choose sides from one of the plays. Sides will be available on the Alumnae website at the end of December ( (note: Alumnae members have the choice of reading two sides rather than presenting a prepared monologue.)

Please print an appropriate side and bring it to the audition along with your résumé and headshot.
​Note that all directors and many playwrights attend the general auditions, so be prepared for a full house.

NOTE: NIF does Festival casting, so you are not auditioning for a specific play or role.
NO emails between December 21-27, 2018, please!

To Request an Audition:
Include your name, gender, acting age range, email address, phone number, and let us know if you are an Alumnae member.
Please note these are non-union, non-paying roles
Auditions will be held in the Studio Theatre at Alumnae Theatre, 70 Berkeley Street, Toronto
