General Auditions

Persephone Theatre is holding general auditions to get to know Saskatchewan artists.
These will take place in person at The Remai Art Center in downtown Saskatoon. 

General Audition Information:

Our General Auditions this year will be done as a joint process with The Globe Theatre in Regina, Sk. Artistic Directors Heather Cant (Persephone Theatre) and Jennifer Brewin (Globe Theatre) will be in attendance. Auditioners will only need to submit once to be seen by both Artistic Directors. Please submit to the theatre of the city you would like to be seen in.

Please prepare a monologue (maximum 2 minutes) for your audition as well as a second piece of your choice. Your second piece can be a song, playing an instrument, a special skill, a second monologue or added conversation time.

About Persephone Theatre 

Persephone Theatre creates in misâskwatôminihk (Saskatoon) in Treaty 6 territory, which includes the Nêhiyawak (Cree) as original signatories and became the traditional homeland of the Métis Nation. We also acknowledge the contributions of the Dakota, Lakota, Nakoda, Saulteaux and Round Prairie Métis peoples in establishing our city of Saskatoon and we extend our appreciation for the opportunity to live, create and perform on this land. 

Persephone Theatre is committed to a reflecting the rich diversity of our community in the stories we tell and the ways in which we undertake creating our work. We prioritize a workplace culture that centres equity, inclusion, and authentic representation. We strongly encourage submissions from artists who self-identify as members of historically excluded communities, which includes (but is not limited to) those who identify as IBPOC, 2SLGBTQIA+, d/Deaf, or who have a disability or chronic illness. We also strongly encourage artists to submit for the roles they feel align with their gender identity and/or gender expression. 

COVID-19 Worksafe Policy 

All artists, staff, and audiences on our premises are required to be double vaccinated. Artists will be required to provide proof of vaccination to Persephone prior to commencing work. Other Covid-19 protocols, such as masking, are also in place and evolve to reflect best recommended practices at the time of production. These protocols will be communicated clearly to artists at the time of offer, and be included in the rider to their contract.
