The show must go on

There are a number of reasons an online audition system could make sense for you—including the location of auditioners, safety and health issues, budget, or space—and now remote auditioning software can make the show go on without a hitch.

Auditioning

From a handful of performers to hundreds or thousands, utilize Submittable’s online casting and scheduling software to make sure everyone has an equal chance to be heard, and in less time.

Judging

Your judges can be absolutely anywhere, and can watch footage, view headshots, or listen to audio online to cast at their convenience.

Selecting

Create a scoring system as simple as “yes” and “no” or as complex as a multi-question rubric. Find the best fits fast, and notify everyone easily with bulk messaging options.

Hold remote auditions and cast productions easily

Now you, your judges, and those auditioning can be anywhere. Submittable takes the theater, stage, or playing field to your mobile device, tablet, or computer screen with our all-in-one online audition software.

Review 50+ file types, including over a dozen types of video and audio files for:

Manage clear communication with everyone before, during and after auditions

We’ve come a long way from scheduling 15-minute time slots back-to-back and taping the cast list to the theatre lobby wall. With Submittable, managers can be sure that everyone is on the same page throughout the online casting process, from accepting audition applications to signing paperwork.

Drag-and-drop forms

Get all the information you need for your online tryouts—nothing more and nothing less. Automatically hide or reveal questions based on an applicant’s previous answers, saving time for auditioners, managers, and administration.

Bulk messaging

Let everyone know the final cast list in a single email that everyone receives at the same time. After auditions are over, send cast members scheduling information and vital paperwork.

In-app communication

Don’t clog your or your manager’s main email inbox with endless time-sucking casting messages—and have an accurate log of every communication in one place.

Gentle reminders

With just a few clicks, send email reminders to performers who haven’t finished their submission, or to judges who have more auditions to watch before the casting deadline.

Easy follow-up

If you need to send your cast or performers additional paperwork, like contracts, waivers, practice schedules, or tax forms, you can do so in one fell swoop with our additional forms tool.

Messaging for judges

It’s just like reviewing tape in a room together or sitting in theatre chairs during an audition: judges can post messages about each audition on an online dashboard, bringing up pros, cons, or other thoughts that don’t fit onto a casting scorecard.

A tool for every remote audition and casting challenge

We’re always adding and improving features in our audition management software that help online auditions go off without a hitch, from university play productions to citywide orchestra tryouts to nonprofit community productions.

Create public or private galleries

If you’re judging visuals, like photos or videos, our online gallery view can help judges see auditions side-by-side and in an organized way, just like in an in-person casting call.

Set role-based permissions

A lot of people, and a lot of people’s calendars, are involved in casting and auditions. Five levels of permission make it possible for everyone to experience the right amount of access to audition information and decision making at any time, from anywhere.

Use auto-labeling for quick organization

Auditioning for multiple parts? Struggling to keep all your calendars straight? Trying to organize auditioners by demographic information? Auto-labeling tools and an intuitive dashboard do it all for you, so you don’t have to juggle Excel spreadsheets or Google Sheets

Conduct multi-stage reviews

Many auditions involve callbacks and careful casting—and Submittable meets that need with multi-stage review options that save time and make life easier for directors and stage managers.

Judge auditions on your own schedule for fairer results

The Pennsylvania Music Educators Association (PMEA) uses Submittable’s audition manager to listen to thousands of music auditions for festivals and conferences each calendar year. Their system involves hundreds of hours of music and over 300 judges scattered around the country. The organization says that the software and judging dashboard not only saves huge amounts of time and eliminates scheduling conflicts, but also promotes participation and inclusion.

Quote Mark

It’s great because reviewers don’t have to get it done in a day. Submittable allows them the ability to listen at their own pace, and it makes it much more fair. It’s not like by the time you get to group 18, you’re thinking, ‘I’m done with this.’ We’re avoiding the burnout that comes with marathon meetings.
