ABOUT THE PROJECT
(EXP)LORE is the first installment in Jupiter Theatre’s new Digital Audio Theatre Experience, a podcast to be enjoyed in the community while social distancing. This anthology of site-specific stories will take an imaginative dive into the past and future of chosen locations across Calgary’s inner city.
We are seeking performers to voice the characters in first episodes of this new audio theatre project. Jupiter Theatre encourages submissions from diverse artists of all backgrounds, regardless of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. We are seeking performers of various ages, genders, and voice types for this project. We are also specifically seeking non-binary performers and female-identifying, femme, and/or female-presenting Filipinx and Chinese performers for this project. No previous voice acting experience is needed to submit.
- Rehearsal and recording for this first call out will take place between August 3rd and September 12th, 2020.
- You do not need to be available for the entire period to be cast, each episode of the series will be cast, rehearsed, and recorded on independent schedules. Given current public health guidelines, we anticipate rehearsals will be done online, but this is subject to change.
To submit, please email the following to Andrew G. Cooper at email@example.com with the subject line “AUDITION SUBMISSION”.
1. Your performing/voice resume
2. A current head shot
3. A voice-over demo/reel OR two contrasting monologues as an audio file (.mp3 preferred) 1 – 2 minutes in length each.
Please attach the resume and head shot as separate .pdf files. If these submission guidelines are a barrier to you for any reason, please reach out to us to discuss. Successful applicants will be contacted to arrange a callback with the episode directors.
We are accepting submissions from members of ACTRA. All performers engaged will receive a guaranteed fee for rehearsal and recording. We are only accepting submissions from Calgary-based artists at this time.
DEADLINE TO SUBMIT FOR THIS ROUND: Friday, July 10th, 2020 at 5:00 pm.
Jupiter Theatre is an independent theatre company in Calgary, AB. We create original works of Canadian theatre that are visual, physical, and musical.

Cooper (co-creator and Jupiter Theatre Artistic Producer), Mehgan Smith (co-creator, co-producer), and Skylar Desjardins (Production and Technical Manager).
Jupiter Theatre would like to recognize the lands on which we work, explore, and create.
