Guelph Little Theatre

Actors / Auditions

Actors are chosen through formal auditions open to the public. Auditions may involve cold reads from the script, prepared monologues or other material at the discretion of each director. Please refer to specific Audition Announcements for the requirements for any particular show.

Auditions at Guelph Little Theatre are open to the public. We advertise auditions on this site and in the Guelph Little Theatre Facebook page and group. You do not have to be a GLT member to audition, but anyone who is cast in a GLT play must become a member of Guelph Little Theatre.

The playbill for the upcoming season (running from Sept to June) is announced annually in the April/May timeframe. Audition notices will start to appear here shortly after that and throughout the year, typically 3-5 months prior to a show being on stage.

Opening Night

By Norm Foster - Directed by Roberta Belfry

Synopsis: At the opening night of a new Canadian play, an embattled director tries desperately to balance his personal and professional life by being everything to everyone! In this hilarious poke at professional theatre life, no one is left unscathed!

Roles: The comedic production requires 5 males and 3 female characters. The age ranges are: 1 male and 1 female late teens to early twenties, 1 male and 1 female mid to late thirties, 1 male forties, and 2 males and 1 female mid fifties.

When:

Tuesday July 5th (3:00 pm and 7:00 pm)
Wednesday July 6th (7:00 pm)

Rehearsal Times: I will expect that actors come to the first rehearsal with comfortable knowledge of their lines (book in hand but eyes on each other) at the end of August. We will do 3 evening rehearsals and one weekend date per week (eg Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evening plus Sunday morning). These dates will be flexible as all actors are not necessary to all rehearsals (but you are always welcome to attend!)

Show Dates: The ten-show run opens (pun intended) on October 14th and runs to the end of the month with two Sunday matinees.
