General Auditions

Dates: August 23, 24, 25, and 26

Factory Theatre is holding general auditions for its upcoming workshops and future productions. Selected performers should prepare two contrasting contemporary monologues from plays written by Canadian playwrights; each must be one minute or less in length for a maximum time of two minutes (not including time between monologues). In fairness and respect to all selected, monologues will be stopped at the two-minute mark. Auditions are by appointment only and priority will be given to members of Canadian Actors’ Equity Association. Non-members will be seen on August 26.

Factory Theatre is committed to inclusive casting.  We encourage submissions from professional artists of all genders, ethnicities, and abilities. Please follow these links to our venue’s visual story and additional access information. For additional information, please contact or telephone customer service at (416) 504-9971

Please note: 

Mel Hague, Artistic Director

As you can appreciate, we handle a large volume of submissions and would welcome your help in providing the best possible consideration for you/your clients. Please read these submission instructions carefully; failure to adhere to these instructions means we will not see you, and late or incomplete submissions will not be considered. No telephone inquiries please.

Submission Instructions for INDIVIDUALS:
Only electronic submissions will be accepted.
• PDF file name should be in this format: LASTNAMEFirstname.pdf
• Please indicate on the subject line of the email your Equity status in the following format: FirstName LastName Factory General Auditions 2022: EQUITY/NON-EQUITY

Submission Instructions for CASTING AGENTS:
• While we welcome e-pitches, we strongly advise you to have your clients submit individually while clearly indicating that you represent them in their email. Factory places a great deal of emphasis on the 150-word personal paragraph as a means of getting to know individual artists for auditions. Therefore, encouraging your clients to submit individually with this cover letter gives them a stronger chance of being selected for the General Auditions.
• If you are using e-pitches, please clearly separate (in different emails) Equity and Non-Equity candidates.
