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.
The Drowsy Chaperone
By: Bob Martin & Don McKellar
Synopsis: A neurotic recluse attempts to coax himself out of his blue mood by listening to his favourite record, the cast recording of The Drowsy Chaperone. The sleeve promises ‘mayhem, mix-ups and a wedding’ and the album doesn’t disappoint: once the needle drops, the fantastic and farcical show comes to life inside the man’s apartment! This glitzy Jazz-era musical stuffed inside a hilarious play that will make you laugh until you cry!
