How it Works for the Performer
One Audition, multiple job opportunities. StrawHat Auditions are open to non-Equity Musical Theatre performers age 18 and older. Positions are available in summer theatres, production and entertainment companies, cruise ships, theme parks, and special events.
Fees: 2023 Registration/annual subscription: $40 (non-refundable)
NOTE: Annual Subscription periods run from November 1st to October 1st of the following year.
Registration: Complete the online form and submit your non-refundable annual subscription fee (see INSTRUCTIONS). Select your Audition Type as a Song & Monologue, Monologue Only, Dancer Who Sings (see AUDITION TYPES). Upon confirmation of your registration payment, you will receive notification via email and your dashboard status will change. This notification is not automatic, so please allow for administrative processing time.
Submission/Application: Your submission must include posting of a 90-second video audition and is incomplete without it (see AUDITION VIDEO ADVICE).
Website: Your OnLine Casting Profile is a resource used by member theatres. You have an option to renew your registration/subscription in the fall, and you can update your profile at any time.
Virtual Dance Call Teaching: TBD
Casting: Registered companies can be found in the Theatre Search. Casting representatives may choose to actively use the Actor Search database, OR they may post their own submission instructions in their company listings. See individual company listings for details about their seasons, casting breakdowns, etc. There is no "Watch Party" or set dates when all casting reps are viewing videos: they will work at their own pace on their own time. It is your responsibility to check in on the site regularly to see updates and new listings, and to follow up on opportunities presented. Check your email regularly!
NOTE: Registration/subscription fee is non-refundable.
