GCTC's General Audition Notice


The Great Canadian Theatre Company (GCTC) is holding general auditions for the upcoming 2018/19 season. General auditions will take place in Ottawa on Sunday January 21 and Monday January 22, 2018 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

GCTC operates according the Canadian Theatre Agreement (CTA), annually presenting a subscription season of six productions. General audition priority will be given to artists whose work is unfamiliar to the artistic director. GCTC promotes an environment of equity, inclusion and diversity. Artists from under-represented communities are encouraged to apply for a general audition time. All artists are invited to remove measurements and physical features from the resumé.

Please note: GCTC’s 2018/19 programming will be announced in March 2018.
We thank all applicants for their interest; however, only successful candidates will be contacted to arrange an audition. Please do not call the theatre to confirm receipt of package.

Artists who have been working regularly in Ottawa and whose work is known to the company are urged to send a letter of interest and updated headshot and resumé for our casting files.

To be considered for an audition, please submit a cover letter and ONE (1) PDF file that includes both an updated headshot and resumé, and save the file using your name as the file name. (ie: Smith.Jane.pdf).

Please send email submissions to artistliaison@gctc.ca to the attention of Catherine Ballachey, Artist Liaison. If necessary, you may instead submit a hardcopy of your headshot and resumé to the mailing address below.
