The Lawyer Show

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 or play in the Lawyer Show band, collectively donating more than 2,800 hours of their time to prove that acting, music and the practice of law have way too much in common. Lines are learned, songs are sung, music is played, audiences applaud, money is raised, and fun and friendship abound along the way.

Funds raised by the Lawyer Show support CTYP’s mentorship of emerging artists and accessibility initiatives and Touchstone Theatre’s new play development.

Past Lawyer Shows include: Urinetown, The Drowsy Chaperone, Grease, Hairspray, Legally Blonde and Spamalot.

The 2020 Lawyer Show will be… MAMMA MIA!

Auditions will be held at Carousel Theatre for Young People on the following dates:

Sunday, October 20 from 7-10 PM
Thursday, October 24 from 7-10 PM

There are no appointments; this is a general call, so we will see people in the order in which they arrive on each night.

For the audition you will be asked to sing a song of your choice, and to prepare a short monologue. Click here for monologue selections.

We will not have an accompanist at the auditions; please sing a capella or bring your own music track. We will have a speaker that you can hook up to your cell phone.

Rehearsals will begin in January 2020. Generally, we rehearse on Tuesday and Thursday evenings in Jan, Feb, Mar and then on Tues, Thurs, Sun evenings beginning in April.

Mamma Mia! will play at the Waterfront Theatre from April 29-May 3 (Wed-Sat @ 8 PM and Sun @ 3 PM)
