Most male roles will not be required until after the first production closes. No other show conflicts will be considered. See Auditions for more details.

If you are interested or have any questions, please contact Tom Hope.

- Mar 14, 2013: Theatre Unlimited is currently inviting applications from Directors, Music Directors, and Choreographers for our January 2014 production of Annie. Applications should be submitted by email to: Theatre Unlimited Hiring Committee - Attn: Michael Buchert (email@example.com). Applications should include a current resume (highlighting relevant experience), a proposal (see detailed criteria here), and a list of relevant arts-based references with contact information (e.g. theatre groups for which you have previously directed). To be considered, applications must be received no later than March 29, 2013. Interviews will be conducted within the first two weeks of April.
Additional notes: While we strive to interview as many candidates as possible, we cannot guarantee that all applicants will be interviewed. Theatre Unlimited is a charitable community theatre organization – non- union, offering a small honorarium for each of the 3 directorial related roles. We value the community in which we perform and strive to maximize the production and group membership to ensure that the overall membership is Mississauga based. We would also consider the introduction of a pre-existing team but reserve the right to interview and or hire individuals of the team.
- Jan 28, 2013: Congratulations to the cast and crew of Theatre Unlimited's 25th Anniversary production of FOLLIES. Reviews are up and it is clear that TU has once again delivered on its mission to provide high quality theatre to Mississauga residents. The Mississauga News says "there's no denying that Theatre Unlimited has aimed high with this production, and they haven't missed". The Ontario Arts Review exclaims "extensive intricate costuming; lighting; and incredible staging/crew teamwork make FOLLIES as professional as local theatre gets". Opportunities like FOLLIES don't come often to performers or audiences outside of New York so this is a show you won't want to miss! Tickets are only available until Sunday February 3rd so hurry and get your tickets at MTix.ca.
Jan 28, 2012: As members of ACT-CO, we at Theatre Unlimited are all invited to the annual Thea Awards Gala.

Full details are available here. To order tickets, please mail cheques to Mary Lynn Merklinger, 3346 Tallmast Cres, Mississauga, ON, L5L 1H5. Cheques should be made out to Mary Lynn Merklinger and be accompanied by a self-addressed stamped envelope so she can forward tickets once they are received. All cheques must be received by March 7th. Anything received after this date will be returned to the sender in their self-addressed, stamped envelope.
