Persephone prioritizes Saskatchewan actors in its productions, but we also welcome performers from elsewhere in Canada. General auditions are held annually in Saskatoon, and bi-annually in other parts of Canada. Generals and show-specific auditions are posted on this site, and are promoted through CAEA’s E-Drive and our local email list.

To join our email list for local artists and be notified of upcoming auditions, please contact


Persephone Theatre has a proud history of supporting Canadian playwrights by developing and premiering new work. We accept submissions from emerging and established writers.

Unsolicited submissions are reviewed by Literary Manager Johnna Wright and are kept on file. We are unable to provide dramaturgical feedback unless a script is being considered for production. We will acknowledge receipt of your submission, and will get in touch after that if we need more information.
