Sending your casting call to Colleges and University representatives can get your information out to either students or alumni of that school. When contacting the schools, you typically want to send the information to a program director, program assistant, and/or communications personnel. Some schools that have performing arts programs in the GTA include:
- Ryerson Theatre School
- York University - School of Arts, Media, Performance and Design
- University of Toronto: St.George Campus, Scarborough Campus and Mississauga campus
- Humber College
- George Brown College
- Sheridan College
- Randolph Academy
- The School of Toronto Dance Theatre
- Centennial College
When contacting an agency, you should make sure of the following:
- Does the agency send performers in their roster for open calls? Sometimes, they only send out for closed/invited auditions.
- Does the agency send performers in their roster for only union contracts? Some agents won’t send their performers if you are running a non-union audition.
For a list of reputable agents in Toronto visit ACTRA Toronto
Ensure you review the list and send to agents that deal strictly with performing arts disciplines only (dance and/or theatre) as some of them strictly deal with film actors and therefore it is not worth sending in your call to them.
Facebook is a great platform for posting about your auditions. You can create an event page or just a digital poster that you can share on Facebook from your personal account, your company account and/or in Facebook groups. If you are just sharing a poster, it is best to make sure that all of the important information is on that poster and/or you are also sharing an external link for people to access pertinent details about the casting.
Some Facebook groups to post in include:
- Dancers, Choreographers, Instructors and Artistic Directors
- Montreal Dance Collective
- Dancers of Ontario
- Dancers For Hire
- Dance Ontario
- South Western Ontario Arts Network
- Toronto Musical Theatre Community
- Vancouver Theatre
