Volunteer Opportunities 

There are a number of opportunities to support Downstage as a volunteer, from helping out as an usher for one of our productions, to steering the organization on our Board of Directors. You can check out our Board of Directors Application Form and see a list of who's on our board on the About page. If you are interested in volunteering with us, please email Artistic Director Clare Preuss (clare at downstage.ca) to discuss the right position for you. 

Ongoing Submissions

If you have a finished script that you would like considered for production or presentation, you can email a succinct synopsis and character breakdown to Artistic Director Clare Preuss (clare@downstage.ca). Please be sure your work fits within our mandate of producing Canadian work that engages with social issues. We'll contact you if we're interested in reading a complete script. If you have a piece in development, take a look at the Simon Mallett New Work Program to see if it's a fit.

We are happy to receive submissions from actors, stage managers, directors, designers and other artists who are interested in working with us. To be added to our artist database, please send an email to Artistic Director, Clare Preuss, (clare@downstage.ca) with your resume. Actors, please also include a headshot. Designers, please include an electronic portfolio or examples of your work.
