Our History

StageAgent originally started at a dorm room in Stanford University. Our founder, Jason Engleman, loved auditioning and performing in musicals and plays on campus. However, as a busy college student, Jason struggled to find the time to spend hours at the library reading through librettos and vocal scores to research roles.  He realized that an online character breakdown database would save performers hours of time. He created the first version of StageAgent as part of a computer science course and over the years, the site has continued to evolve and find new ways to make life easier and more efficient for stage performers.
