Production Biography Update Form

Cast + crew biography update form

The Department of Theatre, Drama, and Contemporary Dance website now features individual student profile pages which allow you to present much more information about yourself and your work.

You may submit a request to update your profile once per semester or when you are cast in a new mainstage production.

Please submit TWO versions of your bio in the "Biography" field.

  • The first version is your program bio, and should be concise (80 words). This is the version that is intended to be published in a printed program.
    • Write in third person.
    • Include your character name after your real name.
    • Include your year in school.
    • Include show credits: IU shows first and then other theatres. List the production name first and then your character in the play or role on crew.
    • State where you are from.
    • Always proofread carefully for spelling and accuracy of information.
    • Do NOT include personal messages, funny remarks, comments or sayings.
    • List facts.

  • The second version is for your web profile page (~150-300 words). This version appears on the Department website and is the bio that people will click to from the show page. You can get a link to your bio so you can access it even if you haven't worked on a production yet.
    • Write in third person.
    • This bio may include information about your experience, interests, and aspirations. This is your opportunity to show your personality, but do not include personal messages, "shout outs", or inappropriate language or comments. Submissions that contain inappropriate content will not be published.

Your web profile also allows you to add your resume, social media links, and your personal website, as well as a banner image. If you choose to upload a banner, make sure it is high resolution, 3072 x 1024 dpi, or an aspect ratio that will work in a skinny horizontal format.
