How It Works

How it Works for the Performer

One Audition, multiple job opportunities – All in one day. StrawHat Auditions are open to non-Equity performers age 18 and older: singers, dancers, and actors. Opportunities are available in summer theatres, production and entertainment companies, cruise ships, theme parks, and special events.

Registration: Complete the online form and submit your non-refundable annual registration fee (also known as your subscription), then mail your hard-copy application and supporting materials (see INSTRUCTIONS). Apply for a Song & Monologue, Monologue Only, or Dancer Who Sings audition (see AUDITION TYPES). Every submission received by the deadline date is given consideration for an appointment (see CRITERIA).

Auditions: All three days of auditions are open to Musical Theatre and non-singing performers. Friday appointments are reserved for those who are available for immediate year-round employment and those who will graduate from college by spring. Dancers Who Sing audition in a select group on Sunday. Performers complete the entire process – audition, dance call, and callbacks – all in a single day.

Website: Your OnLine Casting Profile is a resource used by member theatres both before and after the audition weekend, and remains active throughout the summer season. You have an option to renew your registration/subscription in the fall, and you can update your profile at any time.

Application Deadline means that your complete hardcopy packet is received by our office by NOON of the deadline date.
