AUDITION CALL

Les Zinspiré.e.s: Flambant 9 !

NO CENSORSHIP. NO RESTRAINT. TEENAGERS HAVE THEIR SAY. In this 9th edition of LES ZINSPIRÉ.E.S, six new writers burst onto the stage imagining five new worlds – sometimes funny, sometimes moving. Come be a part of the cast that will deliver all the energy and insight of a new generation of creators. Consistently hailed by critics and acclaimed by audiences, LES ZINSPIRÉ.E.S remains one of Théâtre français de Toronto’s crown jewels.

In these exceptional times, the five short plays will be reinvented in the form of filmed theatre for broadcast on the web. In order to respect the sanitary measures in force and to give the greatest number of Toronto candidates a chance to make themselves known, TfT is calling for self-tapes (videos) as the first round of auditions.
