General Auditions

Theatre Gargantua is seeking up to two actors for a new cycle of work.  Our auditions are held in small, ensemble-like workshops that reflect our collaborative creation process.

Founded in 1992, Gargantua’s productions meld acrobatic-like physicality, flexible sets, original vocal work and the innovative use of media. The ensemble devises all-original works which are built from the ground up with the ensemble of artists (typically 4-6 performers), and a talented team of designers.

Auditions will be held Monday April 30, Tuesday May 1, and Wednesday May 2 (call-backs)

Performers interested in working with Theatre Gargantua should be in good physical condition, able to sing well, and have a strong interest in creating original theatre. Please note the auditions are physically demanding. Development workshops for this new work are planned for end of May, beginning of June, with further workshops and a limited public performance in the fall.

We are happy to receive submissions from artists we have seen previously. We are an equal opportunity employer and we encourage applications from performers who identify as Aboriginal, or members of a visible minority.

We have a two-year development process, the first phase of the process is a two-week development workshop in early June; this fall there will be an 8-week development process leading to limited public performances between late September and early November.


Please forward cv and headshot to by April 25. Only successful applicants will be contacted about auditions. We thank all those who apply in advance. Please view our e-drive posting for more details.
