A headshot and resume are the first impression you give to a casting director/director/choreographer. When you are just getting started, you may not know how to write musical theatre resume, and it can seem completely overwhelming. So often, young performers feel they have nothing to put on a resume… this is NOT TRUE! We'll be adding more info about this topic in future blog posts. For now, here's a template to get you started.

To help make this as painless as possible, I've color coded this template. The text in black should stay on the resume and the orange text should be replaced with your own info. (If you've never done anything to fill out a Film/Tv or Commercial/Industrial section, you can delete those.)
Once you've written your resume… you'll need to cut it to 8×10 inches so that it is the same size as your headshot. Then staple it to the back of your headshot. I like to staple all four corners so that the paper isn't tempted to fall over.
And! If you will be emailing your resume, it's best to send it as a PDF rather than sending it as a word document. This will ensure that your formatting doesn't get wonky after you send it ; ).
