Dear Ms. Lambert,

I was excited to see the post of Stage Manager listed in the Arkansas Times because my current role at the Orchard Theater has given me plenty of insight into the logistical challenges of staging large productions. I have worked on several shows, including one with an extensive set-change schedule, and understand the importance of working with the entire company to create compelling pieces.

My recent work as stage manager for the Shakespeare Extravaganza provided me the opportunity to work with a team that specializes in pop-up theater. Their crew had extensive experience of working in different venues, and I learned a lot about adapting cues to suit the space, using multifunctional sets and creating technical design. The show received consistently positive reviews, with one theater critic describing it as “a triumph of determination on the part of the stage crew.”

Working at the Orchard Theater has provided opportunities to work with several musicians, comedians and other performers, so I am ready for the challenge of working at a venue that has such a wide variety of acts. I have had consistently good feedback from acts and theater-goers, and I believe I would be a good fit for the role.

I would love to talk to you about the role and learn more about your long-term plan for the theater renovations.

Many thanks for your consideration,

Lee Garcia”

Date: 1st May, 2005.

Mr. John Smith,

National Acting Talent Unlimited,

257, Park Avenue South,

New York, NY 12345-6789.

Dear Mr. Smith,

I am an actor new to the city. I grew up in Chicago and just graduated from the University of North Carolina and found out we were fellow alumni. Your client, Alex Redford suggested I get in touch with you after we were both called back by Dave Manning, the casting director for ‘The Heat’. Dave also suggested I contact you.

I just booked a recurring u/5 on ‘Tragic Flight’ after being called back for a contract role. I’ve also been called back for ‘Twin City’. I just completed work on a play at Regional Acting Talent Search after finishing their seminar on Acting. The film I shot has been accepted at State Level Competition.

You can see me next week on ‘Tragic Flight’, and my film is playing at the festival as part of the National Promotion. I also have a reel of selected scenes I can send you. I’m also doing ‘Flame Boy’ at the Platinum theatre and would be happy to set aside a pair of tickets for you. I’ll send you a postcard the week before we open.

Sincerely,

Richard Anderson,

New York.
