Who We Are

StageAgent staff consists of theatre experts with extensive onstage, backstage and academic experience. Members of our team currently perform, direct and teach in New York, London, San Francisco, Dallas, Portland and Los Angeles. You can read more about our staff here.


Originally started as a class project in a Stanford University dorm room, StageAgent has expanded dramatically to become what is now the most widely used theatre resource online.*

Successful theatre artists need to be fluent in a wide array of literature. Artists are constantly performing research and struggling to stay up-to-date with both classic and contemporary materials. Our founder, Jason Engleman, realized that this time-consuming research process could be made far more efficient by harnessing the power of the internet. While at Stanford, he developed on online database of theatre characters. In the subsequent years, he worked with theatre experts to add full guides for shows, sample audition/practice materials and social networking capabilities.

In January of 2016 we launched the StageAgent PRO subscription service with the goal of giving actors, directors and backstage staff access to comprehensive theatre research and networking tools.

During the 2017/2018 school year we launched the StageAgent for Schools program to better empower drama teachers and help students succeed.

StageAgent is a proud member of the Stanford community.
