Aspiring Playwrights (and Actors) Unite!

Are you a budding playwright living in Barrie? From 6 to 10 PM, TBTB is launching a once-a-month get-together for playwrights seeking to have new scenes and plays read out loud. No piece is too small, rough, or new! Just send your script to us at!.

Even if you’re not a playwright- mark this date in your calendar! This event is open to the Barrie theatre community to come together, talk about new work and network with each other.

Actors are especially welcome as we will need lots of readers! For actors, reading new scenes and plays is an incredible way to practice your craft. Often in auditions, you are asked to pick up sides “cold” and quickly analyze them. Being able to read a scene you haven’t had much time to rehearse is a very important part of getting work as an actor.


Readings will begin at 6 PM!



The Barrie Theatre Lab is also a great opportunity to pitch shows or projects you’re working on to others… Not to mention an opportunity to meet new people and reconnect with old friends.

The event will be held downtown at Barrie’s Creative Space, 12 Dunlop St. E.

Admission is free. Free snacks and coffee will be served.

The Barrie Theatre Lab will take place on the following dates:


May 7th, 2018

June 4th, 2018

July 9th, 2018

August 6th, 2018

All interested applicants please contact with your submissions.
