Production Auditions

We typically produce two to three main shows per year - in November and March on the main stage Theatre of the Arts, and sometimes in June/July. Auditions usually happen in the first week of the term but occasionally auditions for winter shows happen late in the fall term and auditions for the spring show happen late in the winter term. Audition requirements are posted below as well as on the Call Board outside ML 135 two (2) months ahead.

There may also be student projects for directing courses or thesis projects which require actors from time to time. Check the Call Board for information.  Notifications are also posted to the UWaterloo Theatre & Performance Facebook page.

  2. Please read the play before your audition.  A pdf version of the script is available on demand from Janelle Rainville (
