Call for actors: Play workshopping series

Thanks to everyone who came out for auditions! Keep an eye out for information about the showcase on August 19.

KWLT is pleased to bring you a bite-sized summer theatre experience, working with local playwright Derek Czajkowski, director Amy MacDonald, and Asst. Director/SM Simon Anthony to workshop Derek’s three plays Confessional, Pub Night, and Coffee. 

You’ll work with Derek, Amy, and Simon at Gaukel on July 29, August 5, and August 12 to refine these three plays and present them as a staged reading to a live audience at 9 Princess St. E on August 19. It’s a great opportunity for anyone who loves working on a collaborative theatre project, who wants to try something new, or who just can’t wait until auditions for The Funeral to End All Funerals to get back up on stage. 

We’re looking for at least six actors between the three plays, and you’ll spend your time working with all three creative leads. Bring a prepared monologue or use one we provide. We’re looking for people who can adapt to direction, so your monologue doesn’t need to be memorized.

Auditions will be held from 12-5pm on Sunday Jul 23, 2023 at 44 Gaukel St. in downtown Kitchener. Sign up at our Google form. Walk-ins welcome!

See the show page for more about the creative team and the plays.
