The deadline for this opportunity has passed.

Calling all clowns!

The Calgary Clown Society is holding online auditions on Monday, June 22, 2020, from 10:00 to 11:00am for clowns to be a part of a virtual clown show that will be live-streamed August 15, September 26, and October 3, 2020. Clowns selected will perform online as part of an international ensemble—featuring England’s beloved clown guru, Jon Davison and Deanna Fleysher, the famous Butt Kapinski who has entertained audiences internationally.

Clowns will perform in smaller group numbers or solos for a 45-minute live show. Has a 100% live-streamed virtual clown show ever happened before? Only the Calgary Clown Society could be silly enough to know that this is a great idea!

Clowns are asked to dress in a costume, have an object to play with and be ready for virtual PLAY for the audition.

Clowns must be able to make rehearsals online beginning June 29 to August 15 on Mondays from 9:30 to 11:00am and Fridays from 2:00 to 3:30pm. There will be two additional rehearsals for the September 26 and the October 3, 2020 show.

Clowns will be given an honorarium for their participation in the shows!

We encourage and welcome applications from diverse backgrounds, BIPOC, and LGBTQ2S+.

This project is made possible by the generous contribution from Calgary Arts Development and the Rosza Foundation.
