The Spur-Of-The-Moment Shakespeare Collective is holding COMPANY AUDITIONS for the 2017 season.
This season is inclusive to the Shakespeare-In-Hospitals Project, starting August 23rd. We are very interested in meeting classical actors who reflect the full cultural, sexual, gender and able diversity of Toronto.
The SHAKESPEARE-IN-HOSPITALS PROGRAM (SIH) provides performance opportunities to emerging and established artists while addressing physical, economic, and social barriers to community and arts engagement commonly encountered in the health care sector using classical text. The ensemble tours to select hospitals, senior residences, hospices and shelters across Toronto and the G.T.A throughout the fall. This year we will be exploring the relationship between Identity and Adaptation.
TO SUBMIT: Please send a headshot and resume to Victoria Urquhart at firstname.lastname@example.org with AUDITION REQUEST in the subject line. Applicants will be asked to submit a cover letter outlining your interest in the program and any community engagement experience you have. Auditions will be held May 22nd and 24th.
REHEARSALS: PART TIME- August 23rd until 3rd week of October.
PERFORMANCE: One-to-two times per week from October 15th to December 16th, plus 3 showcase performances to the public.
PAY: Indie 2.1 Agreement pending grant status, otherwise Collective Agreement.
