Artist Auditions

Trickster Theatre is hiring artists for its 2023/24 season.

Calgary Auditions for artists will be held September 14, 2023.

Do you want to be part of a team of artists creating theatre and dance performances in schools? These projects are week-long residencies taking place throughout Alberta. Each one is based on a unique theme chosen by the school. Each artist will support classes in creating theatre pieces based on the chosen theme.

The ideal candidate will have some experience in at least two of these areas: choreography, improv or devising theatre. Experience with lighting and sound equipment, as well as sound and video editing is an asset.

A Class 4 drivers licence is also an asset.

Artist fees are approx. 30–50% higher than equity rates (our artist fees range from $850 – $1,200 per week).

Out-of-town residencies also include accommodation and per diems. All the work takes place in Alberta.

Most artists typically work 8 – 26 weeks a year (depending on their availability), for 5 – 10 years. We hope you stick around!

Trickster Theatre is a 43-year-old company. It is the largest TYA company in Alberta and has completed more than 1,200 week-long residencies in over 100 communities in Alberta. More than 300,000 Albertans have been part of a week-long Trickster residencies.
