Additionally, we will be in Orangeville on March 11th.  Check back here for location updates as they are confirmed.  Returning Emerging Artists (post-secondary only) are invited to attend Callbacks directly without a Round 1 Local Audition. 

 

UPDATE:  ROUND 2 Online Auditions are now being planned.  Please ensure to apply online in the correct region of Canada.  

All auditions moving forward for 2020 will be taking place using online video technology.  Please check your email for up to date information regarding this.

SAVE THE DATE: 

 

CALLBACKS

Callbacks weekend remains scheduled for Saturday, March 28th and Sunday, March 29th, 2020 in Barrie, ON.   If you advance to Callbacks, you will be able to choose one of these two dates to continue in the process.  It is recommended that you put this time aside now to avoid disappointment.   There is no "alternative time" for callbacks to be scheduled for a private audition.

MANDATORY INFORMATION SESSION

Due to COVID-19 this information session will be moved to an online meeting.

Mass contract and paperwork signing will take place online in small groups based on the similarity of signing needs.

**Due to the timelines of the application process, and the date of funding announcements in relation to the beginning of the summer performance season, we proceed to audition, call back and interview potential candidates, and rank candidates for future hiring opportunities.   No offers of employment can be extended until we receive notification of our application status, typically around the end of April each year.   We can only fill positions that are funded through Canada Summer Jobs as there is no alternative source of revenue for these positions.  Thank you for your understanding.

* Candidates must be ages 16-30 on their first day of work to meet the criteria for funding for this program. No exceptions can be made. Thank you for your understanding.
