Winter Arts Series Auditions

Throughout the year, area residents are invited to audition for productions. In addition to the Guild productions, we also work with area groups to present programs which present opportunities for community members to become involved as actors and technical staff.

If you would like audition information on these productions, please call the Guild at (219) 874-4269 for further information on dates and opportunities.

2020 Canterbury Summer Theatre Auditions

The 2020 season will mark the 52nd for summer theatre productions under the sponsorship of the Canterbury Guild, a not-for-profit Indiana corporation. The Resident Company is a non-Equity group of approximately 6 male and female actors--as well as a production staff comprised of designers, choreographers, musical director, technical director, costumer, stage manager, and additional support personnel. Returning for his 35th year as Artistic Director is Ray Scott Crawford.

Auditions will be conducted in in Michigan City, at Canterbury Theatre (807 Franklin) from 3:00-5:00 P.M. on Sunday, March 8th, and on Monday, March 9th, in Chicago, at the Sheil Park Building (3505 N. Southport Ave) from 4:00-7:00 P.M.. For the Chicago auditions, please e-mail Ray Scott Crawford at, with resume and photo attached, to schedule an appointment. Actors should prepare a short (60-90 seconds) comic monologue, as well as two contrasting musical selections (bring recorded accompaniment, or sheet music in the appropriate key). For Michigan City, prepare a short song and monologue. We require a photograph and resume for all auditions. If you are unable to attend any of the scheduled sessions, please send your photo, resume, and DVD, following the above criteria to:

Ray Scott Crawford
1702 Audubon Place
Shreveport, LA 71105
(Any and all submissions are non-returnable)

Please do not send any audition information (resumes, photos, etc.) to the e-mail link on this site. Any downloadable attachments will be permanently deleted!

Why consider Canterbury Summer Theatre?

With its 52-year history, the Canterbury Summer Theatre has an established record of quality and success. Among Canterbury alumni are current television stars and Tony Award(TM) nominees and winners. In addition, our proximity to Chicago and the fact that many company members (both current and former) are active in the Chicago area as actors, directors, writers, and producers, can be advantageous to those wanting to become established in the theatre community there. Furthermore, if you are looking to play a variety of roles and expand your resume, our season of productions will offer you that opportunity.

Thank you for your interest in the Canterbury Summer Theatre Resident Company!
