Here’s the audition notice for New Ideas Festival 2013.  Please read CAREFULLY and follow directions.


March 6–24, 2013

 Actors of all ages (18+) and ethnicities are needed for
New Ideas Festival 2013,
a three-week juried festival of 15 new works.
A program of 4 different plays will be presented each week, running from Wednesday to Sunday, with a staged reading at noon on each Saturday.

General Auditions will be held:

January 3 & 4 evenings

January 5 & 6 daytime

Call-backs the second week of January

 Actors must be available for rehearsals beginning February 1.

Auditions will be 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. (Alumnae members have the choice of reading two sides rather than presenting a prepared monologue.) Sides will be available on the Alumnae website ( after
December 20. Please print an appropriate side and bring it to the audition
along with your résumé and headshot.

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

 To book an audition email

Give your name, gender, acting age range, email address, phone number,
and say whether you are a member of Alumnae Theatre Company.

No emails between December 21 and 26 please.

 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 (3rd floor) at Alumnae Theatre – 70 Berkeley Street, Toronto.

    This is a big fun festival of short new plays – and an excellent change to meet and work with new playwrights, directors and actors.
