ACTing Opportunities
Winnipeg and Rural Auditions

ACT occasionally receives Casting Call (audition) notices from Manitoba Theatre Groups outside of its ACT Membership. We are providing this information to inform ACT members of these acting opportunities.

ACT members who are interested in pursuing acting in productions outside of their own local groups are encouraged to visit this page often, as casting calls will be time sensitive. We will not be Emailing ACT members to notify them of calls posted on this page.

MANITOBA based theatre companies who are not members of ACT can request a Casting Call posting on this page (see below.)

Dreamlife Players - Fringe Director

  • Play Director Wanted – Winnipeg Fringe Festival 2013 Production

    The Dreamlife Players are seeking a director for our production of a new play called "Love’s Trajectory", which we will stage at this year’s Winnipeg Fringe Festival, July 17-28, 2013.

    We are looking for someone who has experience in the following areas:
    -Directing Fringe / amateur / community theatre productions
    -Working with actors, stage managers, technical crew, and so on
    -Collaborating and giving feedback on a new work
    -Finding actors to audition (this is particularly important) and then auditioning them

    We are looking for an individual who is not currently involved in any Fringe productions in 2013 but would really like to be!
    Availability to contribute to the project at least two to three times per week most weeks, in evenings starting in April, is essential,
    with some meetings before then. Our director will be fairly compensated for his or her work based upon the proceeds of our production.

    If this project interests you, email us at dreamlife.players@gmail.com .
    Please include details of your directing and other theatrical experiences, as well as a phone number for us to reach you.

    We look forward to working with you!
