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 (www.alumnaetheatre.com) (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
