After closing an incredible Creative Partners on Stage show in September, There Goes The Neighbourhood, we are thrilled to announce that in partnership with our dear friends, Community Living Dufferin, we are back and more ready than ever to start our 20th season of Creative Partners on Stage!
Creative Partners on Stage(C.P.O.S.) is a commitment between both of our organizations to create a space for equitable opportunities and inclusive programming. This program aims to engage neuro-diverse actors in theatrical experiences. Throughout the years we have evolved into two companies, striving to provide space for as many actors as possible.
Currently, Creative Partners on Stage actors work with our team of directors and choreographers to develop two original scripts each year, fully supported by our professional production team and the accredited support workers of Community Living Dufferin. There is nothing quite like C.P.O.S. anywhere in Canada and it happens here at your theatre.
To start this celebratory season we will be hosting auditions for the program on November 6th and 8th. Audition details are below!
November 6th, 2023- 3:30 PM to 6:00 PM
Monday Night C.P.O.S. with Liz and Kristen:
Show us a talent – Show us a magic trick, tell a few jokes, sing a song, do a comedy skit, bust out some dance moves, play an instrument, demonstrate your ability to yodel or fold yourself into a pretzel... if you do something entertaining, we want to see it!
~ AND/OR ~
Be the Emcee - You can also show us your skills as an announcer or host. We are especially interested in seeing how you can include the audience in your performances - we want to join in the fun!
~ AND ~
Sing a Song (maximum 3 minutes). Bring music (phone or iPod) to accompany you if you wish. Choose a favourite entertaining group or individual song, and it might end up in the show! If you have other ideas, we WELCOME your creativity!
November 8th, 2023 - 3:30 PM to 6:00 PM
Wednesday night C.P.O.S. with Chandra and Jenee
Please prepare a song or a personal story. Be prepared to play with the panellist at your audition and try your song/story in different ways.
No need to memorize the piece - just come ready to try your best!
To book an audition for either of these programs, please contact Lisa Wood at Community Living Dufferin by emailing her and indicate which group you would like to audition for.
Regardless of whether or not you sign up for an audition, we hope you’ll save the date to see this next season of C.P.O.S. shows from May 17th to 19th, 2024!
We can’t wait to see you there!
