Auditions and Submissions

General Auditions

Theatre Projects Manitoba periodically holds General Auditions for local actors whose work might not be familiar to the Artistic Director. If you would like to be included in any upcoming auditions, please submit your headshot and resume along with a cover letter outlining why you are interested in working with the company.

Do not email the above – please mail all packages to:

Theatre Projects Manitoba
204-245 McDermot Avenue
Winnipeg, MB  R3B 0S6

Script Submissions

Theatre Projects Manitoba accepts play submissions throughout the year.  Please mail to our office along with a cover letter

Who can send us a script:

TPM only accepts submissions from Canadian playwrights.

We only respond to writers we are familiar with or whose work comes recommended by another theatre, a play development centre or a professional theatre artist such as a director or dramaturg.

If you are a Manitoban playwright who does not meet the above criteria, you can send us the first 15 pages of your script, along with a synopsis, and a letter outlining the development history of the play. We will be in touch with you only if we want to request the full script.

Please include the following in your submission:

  • Your script
  • Information about the development or production history of your play
  • A cast breakdown
  • Your full mailing address, phone number and e-mail.
  • Please do not e-mail scripts.

Mail any submissions to:
Theatre Projects Manitoba
204-245 McDermot Avenue
Winnipeg, MB R3B 0S6

How we respond:

We will send you a brief e-mail indicating that we have received your submission. Once we have read your script, we will let you know via e-mail or letter if we are interested in developing or producing it. We do not provide dramaturgical feedback. We ask for your patience in receiving a response from us – this process may take up to 12 months.

Artistic Development Opportunities

Over the years Theatre Projects Manitoba has provided learning opportunities for artists as interns and assistant directors at various stages in their professional development. The theatre does not provide a salary for these positions and interested artists are encouraged to seek external funding.

If you wish to intern in a design department or assistant direct at TPM, please send a cover letter outlining your skills and experience, a proposal for your intended artistic involvement, and an outline of what funding you are planning.

Please do not email – send to:
