How To Write A Bio
A bio (biography) is written in the third person and should include past shows and other performance experience. Remember that your bio is a means to introduce yourself to the
theatre community. There will be many people who don’t know you as an actor, and your bio is an excellent way to communicate with the audience.
Please consider the following guidelines when writing your bio:
PAST SHOWS/ROLES with Garfield Center for the Arts at the Prince Theatre (GCA)
OTHER SHOWS and ROLES
WHAT YOU LIKE ABOUT GCA and THEATRE
SPECIAL INTERESTS, AWARDS
SHORT PERSONAL MESSAGE
Also, please adhere to the formatting as demonstrated below in regards to:
