Our interns are unpaid, working virtually (at home or wherever the intern feels most productive) with set deadlines to be met.

As a director, I strongly encourage performers to study StageAgent's show guides before coming to an audition. Their expert-written plot summaries and character breakdowns give you a leg up over the competition!
I use StageAgent to discover auditions and to study character descriptions. It's a really useful tool for actors!
StageAgent provides an inside look into plays and musicals from the artists' perspective. It's a great tool for both beginning and experienced theatre artists alike.
StageAgent provides one-stop shopping for theatre actors. It's a great place to discover auditions, find audition material, get more exposure for my video reel, and read insightful blog posts from industry experts. It's a great tool for performers!
As an actor I find StageAgent very helpful as I am always on the lookout for new auditions. It also makes it really easy to study characters and shows. I recommend it to all stage performers!
StageAgent makes it super easy for performers who want to learn about operas and musicals. The in-depth character descriptions with vocal ranges will save you so much time and help you come prepared for an audition. The library of audition songs with associated context and character descriptions is a fabulous tool for any singer.
StageAgent is great for finding monologues for auditions. It's so helpful because StageAgent not only provides the monologue, but also the associated character description and show summary providing a wonderful context for the piece.
StageAgent is my go-to resource to study character breakdowns. As an actress, I love having one reliable source for show and character information, monologues and audition songs. StageAgent helps me come better prepared to auditions and feel that much closer to booking the role.
Now you don't have to rely on guesswork to figure out which roles are right for you, or what audition song will help you land a part. It's like an encyclopedia for theater and musicals, but way more clear and easy to search. I highly recommend StageAgent.
StageAgent easily summarized each character's role so that I knew what I was getting myself into before walking into the audition room.
