Theatre by the Bay (TBTB), in partnership with Tourism Barrie, is holding auditions for an original production that blends theatre and cutting-edge technology running in Barrie, Ontario throughout the summer of 2021.
NOTE: Due to current restrictions, actors from within the Simcoe County bubble will be given priority casting.
TBTB is a professional regional theatre organization focused on the development and production of new plays about Barrie and the Simcoe County region (land covered by Treaties 16, 18 and Williams).
Written by five women from the Simcoe-Muskoka region, the show tells the story of seven spectres haunting downtown Barrie.
The story is told through a series of monologues by each of the characters approx. 4 minutes in length.
Each actor will receive several virtual rehearsals followed by one day of in-person filming in a studio. Acting experience in film will be considered an asset, but not a requirement.
Please note: the ages listed below are for the characters and should be considered as a reference.
Hector - An Indigenous man approximately 35-40 Y.O.
Mrs. Morrison - 60+ Y.O. woman.
Thomas Baggs - 54 Y.O. male, Cockney accent, plays guitar in his monologue.
Alisha - A Black non-binary person/woman, approx. 35 Y.O.
Alice May Cotter - 9 Y.O girl.
Roisin O’Reilly - 17 Y.O. woman - Irish accent.
The Woman - 25-35 Y.O. woman.
To be considered for an audition, please submit ONE (1) PDF file that includes both an updated headshot (or recent high-quality photo) and resumé, and save the file using your name as the file name (i.e.: Smith.Jane.pdf)
Please send email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org to the attention of Iain Moggach, Artistic Director. If you specify a time-preference, TBTB will do its best to accommodate, but flexibility is appreciated.
