The Project

We are seeking 2 performers with strong vocal/singing skills for an upcoming workshop of a new play in development, based on the life of Port Perry’s first Black resident. More details on the project can be found at

This current workshop will focus on the development and arrangement of the music used in the play, drawn from spirituals and slave songs and will culminate in two public readings/presentations at the end of the week. In the play, the songs and music are performed by a small ensemble of “Ancestors”. There is the potential for the development of stylized staging and movement.


These are paid, non-union positions. 

There is limited public transportation available. Personal means of transportation is an asset, but the option of car-pooling or ride sharing may be possible, dependent on performer’s point of origin.


Roles Available: 

Ancestor 1 – BIPOC adult female identifying performer early twenties 

Ancestor 4 –  BIPOC adult female identifying performer – late 50’s and above


Interested applicants should submit a resume, headshot and audio/video clip demonstrating their vocal range. Experience and strong skills in harmony is preferred. Previous dance or movement experience is also an asset.

Submissions may be sent to asap and will be accepted until the roles are filled, up to January 31st, 2023. Inquiries for additional information may also be directed to the email above.
