Meet & Greet 2024

Dear Actors & Directors,

We are trying to re-imagine what “general auditions” are all about this year. So here’s what we have planned: an informal gathering with our Artistic Director, Rodrigo Beilfuss, so that we can get to know you a bit more, and artists can mingle and connect with each other in a more meaningful way. It’s our 2024 Meet & Greet! Happening on Friday, February 16, from 2 – 4pm at Prairie Theatre Exchange (PTE) – third floor of Portage Place Mall.

At this gathering, you’ll be able to:

  • introduce yourself and share your thoughts and ideas about theatre and Shakespeare
  • ask Rodrigo any questions you might have about SIR, Shakespeare, the acting business, etc
  • get to know other local actors and directors
  • hear first-hand from Rodrigo about his plans for 2024 (and beyond), and get insights into how seasons and shows are assembled
  • enjoy free coffee and treats

Additionally, if you enjoy our conversations, and would like to formally audition for SIR, then please share a self-tape featuring two contrasting Shakespeare monologues of your choice (2-3min in length each) by Friday, March 01, 2024. You can email your pieces directly to Rodrigo at

If you’re a director, you may also submit a pitch via email, and request a private meeting.

For artists whose work Rodrigo/SIR is familiar with, please feel free to express interest in performing in our upcoming season(s); but there’s no need to formally audition at this time.

Only artists who can work as ‘Winnipeg locals’ will be considered.

Please RSVP by Friday, February 09 by emailing your resume to Rodrigo (, and confirm your presence at the Meet & Greet.

If you have any questions/concerns/thoughts, please email Rodrigo!

Thank you!
