The Lawyer Show

the lawyer show

May 3-6, 2017
Waterfront Theatre

One of Vancouver’s most important legal events and a valued tradition, The Lawyer Show is a fundraiser for two of Vancouver’s most cherished theatre institutions: Carousel Theatre for Young People and Touchstone Theatre, both registered charities. Every year, thirty or so lawyers take to the boards to prove that acting and the practice of law have way too much in common. Lines are learned, songs are sung, audiences applaud, money is raised, and fun and friendship abound along the way.

Audition for the 2017 Lawyer Show!

Auditions will take place from 7pm to 10pm on October 20th and 23rd 2016, at the Carousel Theatre Rehearsal Space, 1411 Cartwright St. on Granville Island. No apppointment necessary.

Never Auditioned before? Think it sounds scary? It's not. It's easy! There is only one criteria - you must be a lawyer to audition (our definition of 'lawyer' includes law students, articling students and clerks).

For your audition, please prepare:

1. A song of your choice. (If you're not a singer, "Happy Birthday" or "Oh Canada" are perfectly acceptable.)

2. A short monologue from the provided options. To request your monologue, email:

Show up during one of the audition times listed above. No appointment is necessary. Depending on how many people are waiting, we'll get you in as quickly as we can, and your audition, in which you will read your monologue and sing your song, should take no more than 10 minutes. We will announce the results of the auditions a few weeks later. Hope to see you there!

If you have any questions about monologues or the audition process, e-mail
