The Lawyer Show 2017


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.



Always wanted to sing, dance and act? Here’s your chance. Audition for the Lawyer Show 2017! The Lawyer Show 2017 will be from May 3-6, 2017


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:


Audition Dates:
Thursday, October 20th: 7-10pm
Sunday, October 23rd: 7-10pm
Auditions will take place at Carousel Theatre for Young People, 1411 Cartwright Street on Granville Island. No appointment necessary.
