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.
