BIO AND HEADSHOT LINKS!
Tips for writing a BIO:
Hit the highlights of your theatre experience. List favorite roles or shows instead of ALL of them! Tell about your training and awards. Identify yourself as a student and tell your future plans. Please do not begin: “(Your name) is excited to be appearing on the Blair Hall Stage….
Your biography is very important to patrons who come see the show. Some patrons will read your bio before the show to prepare for the performance to see if they know anyone and others will review at intermission because they are impressed by your performance or technical work and want to know more about YOU. Who knows, there may be directors and producers in the audience looking for someone to fill a position they have now or will have in the future. OR someone who can offer you a scholarship!
It is recommended that you avoid using a majority of your promotional space thanking people, fellow cast or crew. Thank them in person or save it for your Tony acceptance speech!
