Collective Creation Project


Magnus Theatre is auditioning both NEWCOMERS and CANADIAN-BORN high school students for our annual Collective Creation Project, a collaborative process of writing, workshopping and acting in a play written by local high school students. This year’s production will be about NEWCOMERS TO CANADA. The production will take place on the Magnus Theatre stage in spring 2018. Rehearsal dates will take place Tuesdays and Thursdays from November through May. The Collective Creation Project is led by Danielle Chandler, Theatre in Education Director.

Students are also needed for writing, backstage and technical crew! Book an audition or interview by emailing Amanda Vinet, Theatre in Education Intern at

Magnus Theatre runs an annual play creation project for local high school students, called the Collective Creation Project. With the guidance of professional theatre staff, students from across the city come together to write a play on a social issue affecting Thunder Bay. Students are involved in all aspects of the creation of the play, from writing to acting and stage managing.

Auditions are typically held in October, with writing workshops held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4 – 6 pm, November through to March. Rehearsals then begin in March, with public performances on our Mainstage in May or June.

Past Collective Creation Project sponsors have included Thunder Bay Community Foundation (INVISIBLES and BLOCKED), Ontario Arts Council (INVISIBLES), and United Way of Thunder Bay’s Youth 4 Community Program (BLOCKED).
