Well, it is finally time to create a professional resume for myself! Can anyone help me with the format? Any good sites that show the format?

Me too, sorry I'm useless!

My only problems with that resume:

--NEVER list a film or play/musical in quotes. Only songs, articles, and poems are listed in quotes--never the title of a work. Use italics.

--Optional: A friend of mine (on Broadway) told me to cut all of the stats (Height, Age Range, etc.) They can see what you are. Don't put something on paper that will type yourself like that. However, if you (or an agent) feels differently, then include it.

--Optional: That huge pic on top is a waste of paper (aka room for credits). Better to just have a smaller pic in the upper right corner near your name or none at all.

--There needs to be a 4th column: theatre or producing organization (imagine that there are 4 columns here):

Chicago Velma Papermill Playhouse Mark S. Hoebee, dir.

or I put (dir. Mark S. Hoebee)---it's up to you

Broadway resumes list the Broadway house for the theatre:

Wonderful Town Ruth Sherwood Al Hirschfeld Kathleen Marshall, dir/choreo

--You might also use these headings in addition or instead of "stage":
Broadway, Off Broadway, New York, West End, National Tour, Regional Theatre, Workshop

--Education can be another valuable section, listing degrees, internships, and teachers.

I sort of forgot one thing: I am making a technical theatre resume. I have been in a minimal amount of shows, which can be added, but is there a difference is resume formats?

pretty much the same thing, bway, just substitute your job on the show for the role category. also add any seminars etc. that you've attended under education. proficiency with equipment, y'know, what kinda boards you're familiar with, what software you're comfortable with, can you program, etc. if you have a wholehog 2 in the basement that you like to lug around with you from show to show i'd add that. kinda depends on what level of job you're making the resume to get you. i mean the higher you go up the food chain, the more stuff you're supposed to know and the more stuff they assume you know.

COVER LETTERS ... any idea what to do then? They are the most difficult to tackle.
