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 in Guelph-area print media, and on this site. 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.
Check here for auditions for the current season.
The 2013-2014 Playbill has been announced. Audition notices for the coming season will start around June/July.
Agnes Of God
Agnes: late teens or very early twenties. She is a novice nun accused of a terrible crime. She is an "innocent", a little disconnected from the real world, but very strong in her beliefs.
Doctor: 40's or older. She is a forensic psychiatrist. She appears cold, hard-assed and pushy. We learn that her facade is much more fragile than it appears.
Mother Superior: 50's or older. She is the Mother Superior of the convent. A "bull-dozer" of a woman, with a fierce loyalty to Agnes and a lot of secrets.
The Wild Guys
We will be reading from the script....no preparation necessary
When four men set off to find an isolated cabin in the forest on a "Wildman” weekend, a la Robert Bly, everything that can go wrong does! The men reluctantly participate in male-bonding ceremonies and communal hugs. The result? Hockey cheers and Neil Young sing-alongs!
This play is a satire on men’s self-help encounters of the type made famous by drum-beating poet Robert Bly and the new-age touchy-feely movement that supported it. A great comedy: Fast paced, spontaneous, and flawless in its delivery.
The action takes place somewhere in the bush outside a tiny northern Ontario town.
Cast Requirements - (playable) ages early 40’s to late 50’s
