Auditions

TBTB is holding auditions for its summer production of Boys from Barrie (working title), an original work being premiered in Barrie, Ontario. The actors cast will be playing a variety of characters, including modern day high school students and young men serving in World War II. We are looking to cast 8 actors who will play all roles, regardless of gender. This is a non-Equity call.
