Getting Involved

The Guild depends on creative volunteers like you to keep making great theatre! Whether as a board member, crew member, performer, box office attendant or bartender, the Guild wants to put your passion to good use!

Auditions

Whether you're an experienced performer or just getting started, come play with us at the Guild!

Public auditions for onstage roles are held before each production. We advertise auditions here on our website, as well as through our Facebook page, the artsnet mailing list, and What's Up Yukon.

Character description: Every Brilliant Thing is an interactive monologue featuring one performer of any gender or ethnicity, roughly between the ages of 30 and 55. We are looking for a performer who enjoys engaging directly with an audience and who has experience, or enjoys the prospect of improvising each night. We are considering double casting this part.
Play description: Every Brilliant Thing is a delightful one-person show about depression. It’s also about love and the many amazing things that can, despite it all, make life worth living. Each night, the play’s narrator welcomes audience members to take an active role in the retelling of how they and their family struggled with their mother’s chronic depression.

Every Brilliant Thing is presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc., New York.

Other volunteer opportunities

We are always looking for folks who are interested in:

  • box office support,
  • stage management and assistant stage management,
  • set design,
  • costume design,
  • prop design,
  • lighting design,
  • sound design, and
  • stage carpentry.

With some advance notice of your interest, we can also look into setting up shadowing and mentoring opportunities with other key players in the Guild community.

There are countless opportunities:

Do you have a fondness for sticky tabs, precise note-taking and having your pencils stolen repeatedly? Stage management could be for you!

Like building everyday objects designed to be smashed 15 times in a row? How about setting pillows on fire? You could be our next master prop builder!

How about purposefully dragging a crisp, clean suit through the mud? Watch out, we got a costume designer over here!

Know how to get that hardwood-floor look with only 3 colours of acrylic paint? Fiddle dee-dee, it's our next scenic painter!

The production management team wants to know who you are and how you are interested in being involved in the future!
