If you’re a transgender actor in the Toronto or Montreal area, you could get your big break.
The Casting Society of America has announced an open-call audition for all transgender actors in 13 cities around the world.
The Canadian open-call in Toronto and Montreal will take place on Sunday, October 22.
“CSA members around the world will be opening their offices to union and non-union transgender actors (including non-binary, gender non-conforming and genderqueer actors),” said the organization in a statement.
Artists who are professionally trained as well as those actively pursuing professional careers as performers are welcome to attend.
Those auditioning should prepare a two-page scene (songs and monologues are discouraged) to present in front of a panel of CSA casting director members.
“The open call will offer underrepresented actors the opportunity of performing in a professional environment, while introducing casting directors to undiscovered gems and a pool of talent who, with the right training, could become the next generation of diverse film and television stars,” said the CSA.
