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 all their past experience, conflicts, role preferences, etc. Directors can even take notes and grade each auditionee in key performance areas.
The schedule builder automatically imports conflicts for all cast and crew, so your assistant director can start working on the rehearsal schedule immediately after casting decisions are finalized. It's sooo much better than Google Sheets.
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 the rehearsals for each of their kids too. Cast members with known conflicts are crossed out, so there's no forgetting why anyone is a no-show.
Parents with many children can manage them all from one account.
Cast bios are automatically pulled from each cast member's profile.
Contact information for all cast and crew is automatically compiled and available to all cast members.
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.
