March Madness 2018

March Madness is an annual theatrical competition hosted by the Kitchener-Waterloo Little Theatre (KWLT). Production teams are given a short script one night, audition their actors the next day, and then perform a week later. It’s a night of theatrical mayhem, with one play seen through some very different artistic lenses.

Have you ever wanted to try your hand at putting on a play? Are you an experienced director or stage manager who'd like to run a show but can't commit to months of preparation time?

March Madness is what you've been waiting for! We're looking for production teams, consisting of a director and a stage manager plus any other back-stage and off-stage crew you might want. You'll get your script on March 2nd and audition for your cast on the 3rd, with performances and adjudication on the 10th.

Please register by February 26th to to secure your team’s spot in the competition; please let us know who’s on your production team, their roles, and what you hope to get out of this experience. Don't have a team but you want to participate? Email Colleen ( ) anyway!

Auditions will be taking place on Saturday, March 3 from 12PM-4PM. No preparation necessary, just show up!

Save the date! Shows and adjudications will take place Saturday, March 10. The dress rehearsal at 2PM is a pay-what-you-can, open event and the show (with adjudication) takes place at 8PM.

Purchase tickets here.
