Earn Player Points for Audition Eligibility

In order to be eligible to audition for Main Stage & Non-Main Stage Productions you must earn Player Points. Player Points are based on either an approved membership position on the Board or hours worked at Players' events and productions throughout the year. All new members, however, will receive 65 Player Points at the point of joining.

  • Audition Eligibility: In order to audition for a Main Stage Production, you must have accrued 65 Player Points. To audition for a Non-Main Stage, you must have accrued 45 Player Points.
  • Volunteer & Earn Points Throughout the Season! When approved events that need assistance are announced at meetings or on E-News emails, sign up quickly so you can earn your points! There are even special events that will earn double points!
  • Production Player Points: Dedicate your time during a Main Stage Production to accumulate points based on your backstage or front-of-house role. In order to earn total points below, you must be present for Load-In/Out, Tech Week (as needed per production) and all scheduled performances.
    • Producer/Stage Manager: 185 Player Points
    • Assistant Producer/ASM: 165 Player Points
    • Production Crew (Running, Lighting/Spot, Sound, Costume, Props): 75 Player Points
    • House Manager/Box Office/Concessions: 65 Player Points
  • Deducting Player Points: If you are cast in a production, the appropriate amount of points will be deducted from your point bank: 65 Player Points performing in a Main Stage, and 45 Player Points for a Non-Main Stage. Small roles will have less points deducted, and will be determined by the Producer & Board of Directors post casting, however you must have the minimum amount to audition.
  • Tracking & Rolling Over Player Points: As long as you are an active paid member, your points will roll over into the next season. Inactive Players for more than two consecutive seasons will lose all previously banked Player Points. Event Leaders, Producers & the Production Director will be the keepers of Membership Player Points; however, as a Player you are also responsible for tracking your Player Points. For any questions regarding Player Points, contact Production Director Alex Farlow at membership@stbartsplayers.org. Special individual scenarios will be reviewed by the Board of Directors on a case-by-case basis.
