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 Application Form here 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 Ellen Close (ellen at downstage.ca) to discuss the right position for you. 

Job & Audition Postings

We don't have any positions open at this time. You can sign up for Dialogue, our e-mail newsletter, at the bottom of this page, or follow us on Facebook or Twitter to receive future calls for submissions. 

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 Ellen Close (ellen at 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 Ellen Close (ellen at downstage.ca) with your resume. Actors, please also include a headshot. Designers, please include an electronic portfolio or examples of your work.
