Presenting TheaterForms AuditionForms
AuditionForm is an online audition form that is customizeable to meet the needs of your productions. By putting you auditon form online, you can see in advance who is going to be at the audition, and know before the audition whether you should do some additonal recruiting. In addition to the information in the form you can ask auditioners to upload a headshot and a résumé.
At the audition, your table volunteer can sign people in as they arrive and take pictures of any actors who didn't upload headshots and attach them to their form. The director and other members of the production staff can take notes on the auditioners online. After the audition, you can assign roles, make cast lists, contact the actors you have cast and those you did not, download all the auditioner data, make cast contact lists, and start planning rehearsals using the conflicts grid.

AuditionForms offer these benefits
Flexible enough to meet your needs
Online audition forms have several options to meet the needs of different kinds of theater groups and productions. It allows you to add custom form items for requirements that may be unique to your theater or production. You can choose to include or not include many of the form’s standard questions, and several questions are customizeable too. This includes special provisions for productions that need teen and child actors.
You can include the scheduling of audition appointments right in your audition form. This is easier for you to set up and your auditioners to use than Signup Genius or email appointments.
Helps you before the audition
You'll know who will be auditioning ahead of time, and react to unfilled needs sooner. You'll improve audition turnout with an automatic reminder email sent to actors who have signed up.
Want a visual overview of your auditioners? You can view them in a gallery, then click a headshot to see an auditioner's data. After casting, you can get a gallery of your cast members, and it's printable too.
Helps you at the audition
If you use our scheduling feature, all of your auditioners’ information is available from right inside the appointment schedule. Check it out! (Demo pages show sample data only, not real auditioners.) Each auditioner name on the signups page links to a page with all the data for that auditioner. If you have internet access at the audition, you can save a lot of paper by using these pages and the links on them to auditioner's photo and résumé.
You and your staff can take notes on your auditioners online. If you have multiple staff members involved in the selection process, their notes are shared with each other.
If you don't have internet access at auditions, you can print uncluttered auditioner datasheets ahead of time to use at auditions. Get a quick overview of the auditioner and take notes.
The conflicts calendar shown in the datasheet is readable at a glance, unlike the handwritten list of dates you’re probably used to.
You'll save the auditioners’ time too. If they sign up as TheaterForms members, AuditionForm can fill out all the common information in the form for them automatically. And they're filling out the form on their own time, not at the audition when they'd rather be concentrating on their performance. Your audition volunteers will have an easier time of it too, checking people in on the signin sheet you can print ahead of time.
To handle auditioners who didn’t fill out the form in advance, AuditionForm generates a printable version of your custom form too. View a sample of the printable form.
Helps you after the audition
Assign roles on the auditioner pages and you can use your signups page to review your cast as you put it together. When the cast list is finalized, you can even send email messages to all of those cast, or all not cast. Generates a cast list you can send on to the designer creating your play bill.
Saves you from having to hand-copy everyone’s audition form data, not to mention trying to read their handwriting. Eliminates spelling errors in your programs, or cast members missing crucial emails, caused by copying errors. Keeps you from losing valuable information because it’s too much work to organize it.
Download a spreadsheet to build your cast lists and contact lists. Conflicts are shown in a handy grid you can consult when setting up rehearsal schedules.
Sign up auditioners to your mailing lists easily and with their permission.
