Audition, Industry Listing.

The Northern Skies is a new play in development by Nathaniel Rose, Artistic Director of Spirit Tree Theatre.

Set in the Tundra, Arctic, and the Boreal Forest one hundred years in the future, The Northern Skies looks at a group of people who have opted to move to sustainable communities after climate-related issues made living in the cities unbearable.

Actors involved in the process will help to develop the work, through scene, movement, and musical improvisation led by Nathaniel in rehearsal. Compensation may be given, dependent on whether or not we receive grants for new play development.

Please prepare a contemporary monologue, and a musical piece (song, voice and/or instrumentation) for the audition. Expect to do some improvisation.

If you are a musician and not an actor, please come with a musical piece and we'll see if we can fit you into the musical accompaniment.

Actors and Musicians will be highly involved in the creation process.

Please e-mail with a headshot and resume to be given an audition slot. If you don't have a headshot then a recent photo will suffice.

Rehearsals will be led in January and February. This is for new play development, but we are looking to produce the show after, possibly beginning at the Toronto Fringe Festival.

Co-founder of Broadleaf Theatre, Nathaniel Rose developed this process alongside Artistic Director of Broadleaf Theatre, Kevin Matthew Wong, and has used a similar process to develop three known works, one of which received the President’s Award for Best Production at the Hart House Drama Festival.
