Community Impact

“Volunteers have been the cornerstone of 4th Line Theatre’s creative activities for 31 years since its inception in 1992,” states Managing Artistic Director Kim Blackwell. “This is where the community and art meet. This is a real opportunity to express yourself, learn and grow and join our team.”

“As someone trying to get into acting for the first time, the 4th Line Theatre was an incredible experience. Everyone there was very accommodating and helpful, and it was a great environment to be in as a whole. It further sparked my interest into the many forms of entertainment industry, be it acting, writing, or producing. Overall, it turned my otherwise bland summer of lazing around into an unforgettable one, and it’s something I can wholeheartedly say I would be a part of again!” – Zach Newnham, 2023

Volunteer Outcomes

Jim Watts: Girl Reporter is a fascinating exploration of the experience of trailblazing youth who illegally flocked to Spain to fight fascism, attempting to stop its march across Europe, in the mid-1930s. Jean ‘Jim’ Watts was the only woman to join Canada’s regiment in Spain, the MacKenzie-Papineaus. The play takes us from Toronto to Madrid, from political rallies to the battlefields of Spain. And Peterborough’s own Jim Higgins – union organizer and hero – figures prominently in the story.

4th Line is looking for volunteers of all ages for general auditions.

4th Line Theatre is committed to diverse and inclusive casting. We encourage artists of all backgrounds to apply.
