Introducing StageAgent PRO

StageAgent LogoToday I’m thrilled to announce the launch of StageAgent PRO. It’s the most powerful set of tools we’ve ever built, and it’s all to help theatre artists take their careers to the next level. StageAgent PRO is the culmination of months of work from our technical and design staff, expert writers and tons of customer feedback.

The result of all that hard work is a robust set of StageAgent PRO features including access to:

  • The most comprehensive database of play and musical character breakdowns online
  • Context for hundreds of monologues and songs
  • Our new tag (keyword) search
  • Advanced Toolbox features to store your favorite characters, monologues and songs in once place
  • Ability to customize your StageAgent profile URL and share links to your other social media accounts
  • And much, much more!

StageAgent PRO is for theatre artists who need to save time by being able to easily access accurate information online.  PRO tools will help you throughout the audition process and beyond.  To find out how StageAgent PRO will help you grow your performing arts career, visit our new membership options page.  We understand that budgets are tight and we’ve done our best to keep PRO affordable (only $7.99/month) without sacrificing quality.

HELPING PERFORMERS AND PRODUCERS

Behind the scenes, the StageAgent team consists of theatre performers, teachers and directors. Our mission is to provide useful content and tools to support our fellow theatre artists. We love the performing arts. However, as any theatre artist can tell you, the process can at times be painfully inefficient. We want you to be able to focus on putting on great performances, and not be burdened with spending hours of time on basic research or formatting your resume. We take great joy in doing our part to make artists’ lives a little bit easier.

EXCITED FOR WHAT’S NEXT

The launch of StageAgent PRO is just the beginning of the journey. We are already working hard on adding more innovative and useful features which will be released over the next few months. Sign up for a StageAgent PRO account today. We think you’ll find that having a PRO account will give you a big leg up over the competition.

All the World's a Stage

Take a Bow 2015

Wow, 2015 has been an epic year for StageAgent! After launching our new site in January, we’ve had over 2.3 million visitors who in turn clicked on over 15 million pages. Our writers produced over 1000 new show guides and wrote over 15,000 character breakdowns. StageAgent is now one of the top 10 most visited theatre websites in the world.

Of course, 2015 has been an excellent year over all for theatre, especially on Broadway. After years of booming ticket sales, Broadway is soon adding it’s 41st theatre.  Hamilton took over social media with more than 1 million tweets.

On StageAgent, our most visited show guide in 2015 was Into the Woods, followed closely by Guys and Dolls and The Addams Family. But the guide with the most fans is still Stephen Schwart’s Wicked.

While we certainly enjoyed 2015, we can’t wait to launch the exciting new features we have planned for 2016! We look forward to continuing StageAgent’s role as leading resource for theatre artists.  May the force be with you

SA Clips How-to Image

Click on Clips to find numerous performance clips from a range of productions (and sometimes you can even view the entire play online!)  There are even more clips of individual characters’ performances to discover when you click on individual character descriptions.

SA How-To Plot

Don’t have access to the script before an audition?  Need the context quickly for a particular scene in acting class?  There is a short synopsis of each play available on its Overview page, but if you click on Plot, you will find a detailed, scene-by-scene synopsis of the entire play.
