YPT wants to see as broad of a range of actors as possible at our auditions. Performers of all races, ethnicities and body types are strongly encouraged to request an audition. We would also encourage individuals with a range of All Abilities, regardless of level of training, to apply.
Auditions for specific shows are scheduled as needed and a specific audition call will be posted only if it is required.
YPT holds its General Auditions in the late winter or spring. A notice for the auditions will be posted six weeks before the audition dates. Please wait until the dates have been posted to submit your audition package. Once our submission deadline has passed, we will contact those we are interested in auditioning and provide them with an appointment time.
Both Equity and non-Equity actors are welcome to apply. Because these auditions are introductory in nature, we ask that only those who haven’t auditioned for us in the past two years apply.
Audition packages should include a headshot, resume and cover letter. Each package should be clearly marked Equity or non-Equity. Audition packages are only accepted by mail and should be submitted to:
Young People’s Theatre
165 Front Street East
Toronto, Ontario M5A 3Z4
