The show will bring together installations and performances from a variety of artists in a 120 year old house in downtown Toronto. The show runs throughout the evening on May 26 and is PWYC.

I am extremely excited to share that I am directing the world premiere of Ciarán Myers' new play Sweet Mama and the Salty Muffins as part of the New Ideas Festival at Alumnae Theatre.
More on the play later...but before that, the festival are looking for volunteers! Alumnae are now in their 100th season, fuelled by members and volunteers, bringing new work to the stage.
Actors review this link for auditions
Rehearsals will begin January 30th and thereafter for the productions March 7-25. There are a plethora of ages, genders, types, etc to audition for across staged readings of longer works in development, and full productions, so plenty for actors to chew on. This is a non-union opportunity, but a great group of people. All auditions are for all plays, actors are grouped by age and gender so that directors can sit in on the groups relevant for their casting needs.
I am specifically looking for a female performer over 30 (really anywhere over 30 works, if it is the right person!) for a demanding one-hander that will be in full production.
