- Registration/subscription Fee: $40 (non-refundable)
- Submissions are now PAPERLESS!
- 90-second Video audition required for a complete submission (see Audition Video Advice)
- Online dance call tutorial (TBD)
ALL of the following steps are required for a complete submission:
PLEASE take the time to READ the various pages in the ACTORS drop-down menu!
When you register or log in, you will first be directed to your Dashboard. Dashboard items in red are pending/incomplete (when complete, they turn blue – or disappear). The SUBMISSION STATUS task is not automated. It is managed by our office and does NOT change color.
Complete the online registration form. This is the basis for your On Line Casting profile and for the search filters in our Actor Search. All sections must be completed for your profile to post to the Actor Search.
In the Dashboard:
Verify Your Email Address: This will confirm that you input your email correctly. Once you verify, this task will disappear from your dashboard. Add the following to your Contact List: [email protected] AND [email protected]. Check your spam folder and mark our email as "not spam" if it doesn't show in your in-box!
Profile Information: Open your Personal Profile so you can complete your Online Registration Form. There are 5 sections:
- Personal Information: Your contact info, vital statistics, type of audition you’re applying for, etc.
- Upload your one-page resume pdf here.
- Employment Availability: there are two parts – 1: Select between Summer Only and Extended Contract. This is a search filter. 2: Enter your actual employment dates by using the calendar. This displays on your Actor Search profile.
- Click SUBMIT when completed.
- Roles: A mini-resume. Enter between 5 – 10 credits. Click SUBMIT when completed.
- Audition: You must answer the first series of questions. Use the select button to answer Yes or No. The 2023 auditions are by video submission only, so the Actor Search Listing click box is set as a default. NOTE: Returning Performers, please be sure to update your answers from last season! Click SUBMIT when completed.
- Profile picture: Upload your photo (jpg only!) and use the cropping tool. Original images must be 600 pixels wide or smaller to upload. Click SUBMIT when completed. There are a number of FREE web optimization tools available online to resize and compress your photo jpg, if needed.
- Video: Upload your 90-second video audition here. (See Audition Video Info in the ACTORS drop-down menu) NOTE: Submissions are incomplete without a video component.
Once you have completed your profile, go back to your dashboard to complete:
- Payment: Your $40 non-refundable, annual registration fee (also known as your subscription) is payable via our secure e-commerce portal. This provides your access to the Premium Content on our site, including theatre listings and the activation of your Actor Profile. Subscription period runs Nov. 1st to Oct. 1st
- Submission Status: The message in this task changes to reflect your application status: Pending, Incomplete, etc. This item is controlled by our office and does not change color.
- Opt In to Our Mailing List: We use Mail Chimp for large group communication. Input the email you used to create your account. We do not share our mailing list and will only contact you about StrawHat business or special offers to our subscribers. If you have unsubscribed from our mailing list by mistake, this form will allow you to opt back in.
- Application Deadline: We must have a complete online profile, including your 90-second audition video by the deadline date.
- We strongly recommend that you avoid using .edu email addresses for accounts. University firewalls very often prevent delivery of our verification and confirmation emails. If you have created an account with an .edu address, contact us for assistance in changing it.
