New Ideas Festival 2012 audition notice

Here it is, folks!  Your chance to create a role in one of 15 short works – New Ideas presents only world premieres.

The 24th annual Festival runs March 14 – April 1, 2012.  Yes, it closes on a Sunday this year:  there will be an extra matinee.   Actors of all ages and ethnicities are needed  – check previous blog posts of all the plays and you’ll see what I mean.  A program of four different plays will be presented each week, running from Wednesday to Sunday, with a staged reading at noon on Saturday.

 General Auditions will be held:

January 3-6 evenings

January 7 & 8 daytime

Call-backs the second week of January

 Actors must be available for rehearsals beginning February 1.

 Auditions will booked according to age and gender, so actors should keep all the audition dates free until they receive an audition time.


Actors will perform a two-minute monologue of their choice and a side from one of the plays.  Members of Alumnae Theatre Company have the choice of reading two sides rather than presenting a prepared monologue.

Please bring résumé and head shot to your audition.

 Please note that all directors and many playwrights attend the general auditions, so be prepared for a full house.

 To book an audition please email:

Give your name, gender, email address, phone number, and acting age range.

               If you are not able to email, you may leave a voicemail at  416-364-4170 Box 3.  No phone calls between Dec. 21 – 26.

Actors must not be a member of CAEA or ACTRA, as Alumnae Theatre is a not-for-profit, non-professional company.

Auditions will be held in the Studio at Alumnae Theatre.  70 Berkeley Street, Toronto
