Call for Submissions: General Auditions

Hosted by Lunchbox Theatre

Lunchbox Theatre is happy to invite audition submissions for their 2023 General Auditions. Auditions will be held in-person, April 12-13, 2023 at Lunchbox Theatre’s rehearsal hall (Calgary Tower Centre) with Bronwyn Steinberg, Artistic Director, and Associate Artists Nick Wang and Heidi Damayo in attendance. They particularly encourage submissions from local theatre artists who have not had the chance to audition for Lunchbox in the past two years. 

Selected actors will be sent an audition invitation and asked to prepare up to 5 minutes of material that best showcases their talents (monologue(s), song, dance.) Please also be prepared to chat a bit with the team in attendance and know that you may or may not be redirected on your audition material. 

Equity members will be seen first at all open audition calls. Please bring your membership number to the audition.

Deadline: March 19.


Access and inclusion are important to Lunchbox Theatre. If you have barriers to access to any part of our process, please don't hesitate to reach out to them at ad@lunchboxtheatre.com and they will work with you to find the best way for them to get to know you and your work.

Bartley and Margaret Bard and Betty Gibb were looking for a way to present live theatre during the lunch hour to downtown shoppers and workers, so in 1975 they founded Lunchbox Theatre. Located in Calgary’s downtown core, it is now recognized as one of the most successful and longest running noon hour theatre companies in the world! Lunchbox Theatre delivers a fun and unique experience to its audience – upbeat performances in an intimate and comfortable atmosphere. Patrons are encouraged to eat their lunch while they enjoy the show. This friendly approach makes Lunchbox Theatre an ideal place to introduce theatre to new audiences, both young and old.
