Actors create their own profile and can sign up for an audition slot from their phone, tablet, or home computer. It's like SignUpGenius but built specifically for theatre life.
The audition form feeds a dashboard where directors can easily click to view any actor's profile including their headshot, past experience, conflicts, role preferences, etc. Directors can even score each auditionee in key performance areas and make notes about the audition live on the spot.
The schedule builder automatically imports cast conflicts from their audition form, so your stage manager can start working on the rehearsal schedule right away. G'bye, Google Sheets. All that tedious spreadsheet work is gone forever.
Actors see their name highlighted on the schedule and can filter the schedule to see only their rehearsals. They can export rehearsals to their favorite calendar app, and parents can easily view rehearsals for each child. Cast members with known conflicts are crossed out, so there's no forgetting why anyone is a no-show.
Contact information for all cast and crew is automatically compiled and made available to everyone in the show.
Cast bios are also compiled automatically from each cast member's profile.
Directors can moderate conflicts that are submitted late.
Parents can manage kiddos all from one account (audition forms, profiles, rehearsal schedules).
Our vision is to serve community theaters and the production volunteers who give up their time and talents to make their local theatre a success.
I'm sick of apps that talk big but don't show you anything useful before you sign up, so let's pull back the curtain and show you all the great things Cast98 can do for actors, directors, and anyone managing theatre logistics.
