SUBMISSION REQUIREMENTS
TRU Actors – you spoke, and we listened. No headshots required this year. However...

We heard you - it's costly to bring 60 headshots to an audition (although we always return headshots not kept by the auditors. And headshots is a necessary cost of doing business.) This year we will be creating "casting sheets" with 6 actors per sheet, organized by time slot. We still require you to email (or snail mail) us your headshot, resume and a competed application. Attach it all to an email sent to TRUActors@gmail.com and type into the body of the email (do not attach) the following info, which will appear on the casting sheet along with a thumbnail of your headshot. (Type this info into the body of an email to reduce the possibility that we mistype it on the sheet.) Send in this EXACT order:
Your name
Email | phone
Height | weight | eye color | hair color
Vocal type and range (if applicable)
Union status | Representation (if applicable)
Your 2 audition pieces (if you know them)
 
To apply: register and pay using the payment options in the bright red box (above left on your computer, or scroll to bottom of page on your other devices); then scan and email your application and headshot/resume to TRUActors@gmail.com - we must have everything (payment, application, headshot, resume) before your application is considered complete

Remember: you must attach your headshot, resume and application, but type the above info into the body of your email. Materials may also be mailed to:
Theater Resources Unlimited/Audition, 309 W. 104th Street 1D, NYC NY 10025
