UPDATE FOR 2021 AUDITIONS                                    10/01/2020

Due to continued concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be presenting live auditions this season. We invite you to register on our website for access to our extensive talent database, complete with video auditions.

Why should you consider StrawHat as your talent resource?

  • We're New York City’s premiere combined audition service – since 1979!
  • Find talent in our Actor Search database (over 1700 actors, singers, and dancers last year)
  • Create an online Company Profile complete with job listings
  • Search and review Staff/Tech/Design applicants in our searchable database
  • We make casting efficient and economical, so you can focus on other pre-production planning

Actor Search: Our talent database search filters provide for multiple customized results so you can find the people that meet your needs. Actor Profiles include photo, resume, audition and dance videos, employment availability, and much more. Our special ‘Featured Performers’ filter shows you the performers we feel stand out from the crowd.

Staff/Tech Search: Use our position search filters to find, then view and contact candidates for every position you need to fill, from box office to spot ops.

Do we see results? During traditional audition seasons, we’ve found:

  • Over 80% of our performers receive callbacks, with an average 4 callbacks each.
  • The top 15% of performers auditioning last year received 10 or more callbacks each.

Our application screening and ‘Featured Performers’ search filter will put this year’s brightest stars just a click away.

Registration opens NOVEMBER 1st! Click on the links at the upper right to begin your online registration and create your company profile.
