About our auditions
When are they?
Auditions will be held May 20, 22, 23, and 24th, 2019 in the evenings. The director for A Play About a Dragon will be present on May 22 and 23, and the director Love & Information will be present on May 20 and 24th, however you can audition any day for any play (all auditions are filmed and shown to the directors for both shows).
Where are they?
Auditions are in the CYPT space in the basement of the Unitarian Church of Calgary, located at 1703 1st street NW.
How much does it cost?
Our mainstage productions are tuition-based programs. If you are cast in one of our shows, the cost of tuition is $500 for a show, however we never want that cost to prevent anyone from auditioning, so if your family is in need of financial assistance, we are able to provide bursaries upon application. Please email [email protected] to learn more about our bursaries.
What will I have to do at the audition?
Please rehearse and perform a monologue of your choice that you can show us at the auditions. The monologue should be less than 2 minutes long and can be comedic or dramatic. After you perform your monologue, we may ask you to read a scene from one of the plays in the season. Our auditions are fun and relaxed, so have no fear!
How do I sign up?
Step One: Be sure to review the rehearsal schedules for any show you are auditioning for at the cypt website HERE. By auditioning, you are confirming you are available for all rehearsals/performances and willing to accept a role if cast.
