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. Monday 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 the last day of the audition weekend. Performers complete the entire process – audition, dance call, and callbacks – all in a single day.

Auditions: 10:00 am – 1:00 pm & 2:00pm – 6:00 pm
Dance call: 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Evening Callbacks 8:30 pm – 11:00 pm
Dancers Who Sing Call: Monday only, 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm

All three days of auditions include Musical Theatre and Monologue Only performers.
*Monday’s auditions are reserved for performers available for year-round employment and those graduating college in the spring, as well as ALL Dancers Who SIng.
Dancers Who Sing present a dance call, then each present 16 bars of an up-tempo song.

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.
