PROJECT SYNOPSIS

Justice Theatre brings the excitement of the Canadian legal system to the public through theatre! Performing a variety of scripts at schools, community centers, and the occasional library to audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

Additional Comments:

There are several scripts ranging from online bullying, to gang violence, to the Stanley Cup Riots, so there is a range of characters we are looking for. We perform the shows requested by the schools and communities that book us, because of this you may not work everyday and may be called on short notice. Keep in mind majority of our shows happen Mon-Fri between the hours of 8:30am and 3:30pm occasional weekend or evening shows occur as well as some out of town tours. This Theatre group is very fluid and dynamic, keeping you on your toes. It’s a great way to practice and develop your craft and get paid.

Please note: some roles have been cast but we are always looking for strong swing/understudy actors to call upon when scheduling conflicts inevitably arise.
