  • We have a limited number of audition spots. If you have not been notified of an audition time by 7 pm on June 20th, this means we don’t have room to see you this time around.  Erin Macklem will call you …we would prefer that you don’t call her.
  • Audition time priority will be given to Equity Members and Equity registered apprentices. Please ensure that your membership affiliations are noted on your resume.
