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.

Good Night Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet)

Synopsis: Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) is Ann-Marie MacDonald’s dazzlingly witty, hugely inventive love-letter to Shakespeare, feminism, scholarship, dogged sleuthing and the triumph of the underdog. This Governor-General's and Chalmers prize-winning comedy reveals what happens when "Othello” and "Romeo and Juliet” are rescued from tragedy. Of course MacDonald’s razor sharp mind is in every twist and turn in the layered story, and in every double and triple entendre. The story of the play is devilishly clever and you can tell she must have had a blast writing it.  Prior knowledge of Shakespeare is not necessary: this is a gender-bendy, big-hearted and crazily-intelligent romp, where irony and anger sing in harmony with innocence and poignancy. This production goes like the wind, winks at the audience and tweaks its cheeks, and sends them out into the night, smiling.

When:
Wednesday, September 23, 6:00 - 10:00 p.m.
Thursday, September 24, 6:00 - 10:00 p.m.
