Carousel Players holds General Auditions once a year, typically in June/July, in Toronto and St Catharines. Auditions are by appointment only. Only successful applicants will be contacted to schedule an audition time.
Auditions for specific plays and workshops are scheduled as needed by the Artistic Director.
Performers are asked to prepare 1 Canadian monologue of their choice, no longer than two minutes in length. In addition actors are welcome to share a special skill or interest: be it singing, dancing, a musical instrument, puppetry, poetry, etc.
We accept audition submissions year round. Performers are invited to submit a letter of interest, a headshot, and a resume that includes a current phone number and email address using the Audition Submision Form.
Carousel Players is a member of the Professional Association of Canadian Theatres and engages professional artists under the terms of the Canadian Theatre Agreement. CAEA members will be seen first at all open audition calls. CAEA members: please bring your membership card to the audition.
2020 General Auditions will take place by video submission. The deadline for sending in your self-tape is August 28.
Call-backs will take place in late September on the Zoom video call platform.
