• By being ‘in-the-know’, connections and opportunities for work are cultivated.  Jobs are booked.

  • In one publication, actors can see who is doing what, where and with whom.

  • Whether you have an agent or not, having information well in advance gives you a ‘head start’, before auditions are scheduled.

  • Craft monologues, songs, audition material based on the year’s upcoming productions.

  • Self submit by writing Artistic Directors, show’s directors or casting directors, with a specific show/role request, before auditions are scheduled.

  • Contacts and addresses are at your finger-tips for mailings, postcards or reviews.  

  • When ‘out of town’, you can set up auditions or meetings with theatres in same towns or states; being ‘armed’ with show and contact information.

  • Empower yourself and propel your career.  The Season Overview has repeatedly proven to be a successful tool to open doors and cultivate jobs for actors for over 25 years. 

 

  • Take a look at the plays, playwrights, trends, being done in theatres across the country.  Use this information to choose scene work, reading assignments, songs or monologue material for your classes.

  • Craft an audition class where students take information from this publication (noting a specific play and role they are currently “right” for), write a mock letter or email requesting an audition, work on audition material based on that request, do the audition and then write a thank you follow-up to both casting and artistic directors.  This will help prepare students for the moment they graduate and get themselves into those audition rooms and book those jobs.

  • Use information in The Season Overview to help focus and form ideas for end of the year showcases.  (If you know what agents are submitting their clients for, what casting directors are taking submissions for the day they walk into your showcase, you’ll be better able to select material for your students – making them “current” and immediately marketable.)

  • With the contact information available, advise your students to reach out to artistic directors in Regional Theatres, where they will be traveling or visiting family.  Encourage them to set up general auditions with those theatres/artistic directors as a means of introduction. 

  • Extending to students the importance of the business side of theatre, prepares them for life as a      professional.
