Earn Player Points for Audition Eligibility

In order to be eligible to audition for Main Stage productions you must have a minimum of 65 Player Points. Player Points are based on hours worked at Players' events and productions throughout the year and/or being a member of the Board of Directors. Each new member receives 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.
  • Volunteer and Earn Points Throughout the Season: When opportunities are announced, sign up quickly so you can earn your points. There are even special events that will earn double points!
  • Production Player Points: Crew 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 for performing in a Main Stage. Small roles will have fewer points deducted, and will be determined by the Producer and Board of Directors post-casting; however, you must have the minimum required points 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 and the Production Director are the keepers of Player Points; however, you are also responsible for tracking your own Player Points. For any questions regarding Player Points, contact membership@stbartsplayers.org
