Call for Submissions: CRAPSHOOT – Passion, Theatre Passe Muraille

Submissions due October 17 at 5:00pm

We are seeking submissions for our emerging artist event on November 1 at 10:30pm. We kick off the season with the theme of PASSION, where we will be exploring what drives us, and what motivates our decisions. Do we find callings towards something or someone? Are we devoid of passion with the world at our fingertips or since we’ve begun exploring, does it fuel the fire?

To submit, simply email Artistic Producer Megan Poole at with answers to the following questions (by October 17):

  1. Name
  2. Collaborators (if applicable) or Artist Name
  3. Email Address
  4. Phone Number
  5. Where might we have seen your work before?
  6. What have you got for us?
  7. Why are you looking to showcase this piece at Crapshoot?

Crapshoot is an event for emerging artists in the early stages of their careers. It is held approximately three times each season, as part of our After Hours programming. Artists of different disciplines are selected and given five minutes to perform on our Cabaret Stage. At the end of each night the audience votes for their favourite performance and that artist/group is invited to perform for twenty minutes at the next Crapshoot.

We welcome actors, directors, writers, musicians, comedians, dancers, producers, visual artists and anyone who rolls over the boundaries between these roles. Our evenings are typically put together with a variance in mind, so ante up and go all in! Only those selected for an audition will be contacted. Not every submission will guarantee an audition, but pieces can be in any state of the development process. These need not be perfect (yet). However, failure to follow the guidelines means your application may not be considered.
