General Auditions for our 2013-2014 Season:

General Auditions will be held on the following dates:

Auditions are appointment only. Location will be shared when audition applications are submitted.

Actors are required to prepare a 2-minute modern monologue. Please time the monologue when you practice. To book your audition time, e-mail us at [email protected].

Please note:

All roles are non-union and non-paying. If you are not a member of Amicus Productions, you will be required to join the company. (Which is a good thing - this is a nice group of people who share your enthusiasm for live theatre!)

Reading copies of scripts are available at the Metro Reference Library. Copies of the plays are also available for purchase through Dramatists Play Service, Samuel French, or Theatre Books.

Please read the character breakdowns carefully to make sure you have the skills required (accents, etc.). For play synopses, please see our Current Season page. Most age ranges are approximate and will depend on what actors are best for the roles.

Directors Selected!

Thanks to everyone who applied this year for your interest, and for taking the time to prepare your presentations. Below, please find the names and short biographies of those who have been chosen to direct this season:

Since then he has been director on such shows as Arsenic and Old Lace, You Can't Take it With You, The Comedy of Errors, Nunsense, and A Chorus of Disapproval for Amicus, as well as Sweet Charity for Scarborough Music Theatre, Nuts and Beyond Therapy for the Bloor West Village Players, and most recently 5 Women Wearing the Same Dress for Theatre Etobicoke, and The Odd Couple for Scarborough Players. Mike is happy to be back in the Amicus fold working in their new digs.

Victoria Shepherd - Scotland Road

Recent directing credits include Queen Milli of Galt, and Real Estate (Village Players). Victoria is an avid amateur Titanic historian and is immensely excited about bringing Jeffrey Hatcher's intriguing play to the Papermill Theatre.

Maureen Lukie - A Month in the Country

Her past productions with Amicus include Having Hope at Home, Arcadia, Les Liaisons Dangereuses, Fallen Angels, and Jane Eyre as a director, and The Tale of the Allergist's Wife and Barefoot in the Park most recently as an actor. She's expanded her experience with a second theatrical family, the Toronto Irish Players, most recently directing Midden, as well as Moonshine, and James Joyce's The Dead; and made visits to The Village Playhouse for Doubt, Enchanted April and The Woman In Black. And who doesn't look forward to A Month in the Country?


Backstage Volunteers:


Producers are needed for Scotland Road and A Month in the Country. Experience is an asset; however, absent that, strong project management and budgetary skills are all that are required.

Stage Management:

We are currently looking for Stage Managers for all three shows. If you are good at project management and have great organizational skills, we would like to hear from you! Some experience is preferred. Mentoring is available for those interested with little to no experience.


Please contact us if you have interests in taking part in this capacity. If you have the time and the talent, we would be happy to hear from you.


We are always looking for backstage techs, from assistant stage managers to lighting and sound operators to front-of-house ushers. If you are interested in participating in theatre and meeting some very fun and colourful people along the way, this is a great way to do so!

If any of the above positions interest you, drop us a line and someone will get back to you. Except where stated, no experience is required; we will show you everything you need to know.
