Audition, Industry Listing, Job Posting.

Deadline: Saturday, June 5th

Pirate Life Theatre is seeking a number of enthusiastic performers to join our merry band of buccaneers this summer! If you enjoy performing, working with kids, and being outdoors on the water, then this is the gig for you! As a company of family-accessible artists, we celebrate diversity and fight for inclusive representation on our stages and in our community.  We encourage submissions from artists of all backgrounds regardless of race, gender, national origin, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression.


Pirate Life is an immersive children’s theatre company that performs interactive adventures on a 50ft pirate ship. Each adventure begins with a series of onshore activities led by our pirate performers. Guests are transformed into a pirate crew complete with their own pirate names and face paint tattoos. Then our crew sets sail on our ship, The Island Rogue, for a 1hr interactive show and treasure hunt! During our sail through the Toronto Islands, audiences are invited to decipher treasure maps, complete challenges, and fend off villainous pirates with our 24 fully-functioning water cannons!


This is a non-union position compensated at a rate of $15/hr plus tips

FT and PT positions available.

We operate 7 days a week in July and August, and on weekends only in September and October.

Rotating cast members perform up to 3 shows per day.


Submissions due Saturday, June 5th
