SPRING 2021 AUDITIONS

General auditions and callbacks for the 2021/22 Season will likely be held online, through the submission of a self-tape.

While it is still early we do expect to hold our auditions online again this season.  Anyone wishing to be considered for the 2021/22 Season will be requested to make a video submission self-tape audition. 

Auditions are open to anyone ages 10+. Students must be 10 years old at the time of auditions. 


When deciding to audition, be sure to review the SHOW INFORMATION, located on each of the individual show pages, to understand the scope and the commitment required to participate in a StoryBook production.  These will not be available until we have announce our season.

StoryBook produces shows using volunteer actors with professional production teams including professional directors, designers and choreographers.  We do also offer some artists bursaries or scholarships when casting decisions are made. To find out more about this program please visit this page regarding Actor Fee Consideration.

 

The audition process is also a learning environment where a panel of up to 4 working theatre professionals will watch your audition and make notes, which are then passed along to the production team for consideration.
