  • Go over to the right hand side of the page and you can begin filling out your criteria.      
  • Choose the gender of the role desired by selecting one or both of the genders as indicated here:
  • (when a gender is successfully selected, it the circle in front of it will be colored blue)
                     
 
 
 
  • Select the age range and union status of the roles desired by adjusting the sliders and radio-dial buttons below --
  • (in the picture below, union and nonunion roles between the ages of 18 - 64 will be displayed)
                       
  • Filter results of a search by selecting the zip code or city where the actor is seeking roles.
  • Adjust the sliders to determine how far the search should extend from the selected zip code or city.
                    
  • View paid or unpaid jobs in theatre, film, television or any combination of fields.
  • Click the check boxes next to the categories shown below:
                            
  • By pressing the + button in the gray portion of a filter's header, only options selected will be seen.
