Self-Managed Conflict Calendars

Actors edit their own conflict calendar, right from their computer or smartphone. It saves paper and removes a heavy burden for very busy stage managers who would usually compile conflicts manually. Cast member conflict calendars sync automatically with the rehearsal schedule, and the show's director can approve or reject late changes.

Auto-Syncing Schedule Builder

Directors can start building the rehearsal schedule as soon as they finish the cast list. Adding a rehearal takes about 30 seconds and Cast98 automatically imports the entire cast's conflicts for easy side-by-side comparison.

Start-to-Finish Auditions Manager

The auditionee dashboard is an all-in-one-place hub for online theatre auditions. Directors that want a full-featured tool to manage auditions logistics have access to online audition forms and auditionee scorecards for saving notes and rating performers in key skill areas.

Personalized Rehearsal Schedules

Death to unwieldy spreadsheets! Cast members can login to view the rehearsal schedule at any time, and everybody gets a personalized schedule automatically. Actors see all of their rehearsals in one place and can export them to their favorite calendar app.

No, you can't skip the auditions form and go straight to scheduling. The magic of our schedule builder is that it alleviates the burden on directors and stage managers by enabling actors to enter their own conflicts so that no one person has to do it alone. Skipping the auditions form (which is how actors submit their conflicts) seems like a fast-track solution but would result in more work in the end.
