Audition, Industry Listing.

Actors (non-union) of all ages (18+) and ethnicities are needed for New Ideas Festival 2018, a three-week juried festival of 15 new works running from March 7 to 25, 2018.

A program of 4 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 will be held:
January 6 & 7 daytime
January 8, 9 & 10 evenings

Callbacks the second/third week of January

Actors must be available for rehearsals beginning January 30.

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 perform a two-minute monologue of their choice and a side from one of the plays. (Alumnae members have the choice of reading two sides rather than presenting a prepared monologue.) Sides will be available on the Alumnae website ( at the end of December.

Please print an appropriate side and bring it to the audition along with your résumé and headshot. 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 and 27 please!

To book an audition email:
Give your name, gender, acting age range, email address, phone number,
and say whether you are an Alumnae member.

Auditions will be held in the Studio Theatre at Alumnae Theatre
70 Berkeley Street, Toronto
