Theatre Newfoundland Labrador is accepting video auditions for its’ 2022 Gros Morne Theatre Festival. The season is a six-play repertory season from May to September that includes music, dinner theatre, drama, and comedy. Performers will be cast in one to three plays and be required for ancillary activities through the summer including readings, workshops, and community performances.
The cut-off date for video auditions is February 14, 2022. We will do call backs through either zoom or in-person starting February 21 to February 28 with casting complete by early March.
Theatre Newfoundland Labrador is a member of the Professional Association of Canadian Theatres (PACT). The Gros Morne Theatre Festival is a major Canadian Theatre Festival based in Cow Head, Newfoundland and Labrador in the Gros Morne National Park. We will produce a full professional 16-week summer repertory season that includes 6 plays along with a visiting artist series and workshop development weeks. There are two performances nightly in the Nurse Myra Bennett Centre for the Performing Arts. Cow Head is at the north boundary of the Gros Morne National Park and artists will be assigned housing throughout the community.
Please submit a video of two pieces, one contemporary monologue and one music piece. Please also include a clip of any musical instrument you play and talents or special skills you’d like us to see (i.e., clowning, juggling, etc.). Please be familiar with our work, you can find an archive of our seasons on our website at theatrenewfoundland.com. The core of our season is Newfoundland and Labrador based work so please consider that when choosing your audition pieces. You can sing a cover song, but a Newfoundland and Labrador song will probably resonate with us. Please also attach a resume.
How to Film Your Audition:
Most self-tapes can be filmed with your smartphone.
An easy way to elevate the quality of your self-tape audition is with an inexpensive tripod.
When filming please remember:
Only you should be on camera.
Shooting from the chest up is a safe bet.
Keep the camera still.
The video should be 5 to 8 minutes and include a short introduction of yourself. The monologue scene you present should be credited with the play and playwright and you should tell us who wrote your song. It’s okay to sing acapella or to have someone off camera accompany you.
