Call for Submissions! We’re looking for actors for our new show!

Suitcase Theatre is currently seeking submissions for non-union performers for our upcoming fall school tour and subsequent tours through the GTA as well as across Ontario. Suitcase Theatre is a not-for-profit charitable organization dedicated to children and youth. Our mission is to create and facilitate theatre experiences that are accessible to all and provide a positive and lasting influence on children and families.

This new show will aim to tackle the challenges facing young people today with regards to mental health and will focus on giving students strategies and coping skills to help them achieve a better sense of overall well being. We hope to engage students in conversation and open up dialogues between students, teacher, and parents about these challenges and the topic of mental health as a whole.
