This is the form for submitting show statistics to the Counting Actors Project. The project’s first monthly report was in June 2011, originally on Valerie Weak’s SF Bay Area Actor blog. Beginning February 2014, the project moved to the WWSF website.
Use the fields below to submit info for a current production. Please read the guidelines first to be sure that your information complies with our project rules.
Thank you for your participation and support of the Counting Actors Project!
- The performance took place in the 9 county San Francisco Bay Area (that’s San Francisco, Alameda, Contra Costa, Santa Clara, Marin, Sonoma, San Mateo, Solano, and Napa counties) OR that the contract’s city of origin was within the 9 county Bay Area (this last bit typically applies to commercial productions of recent Broadway hits that are on a national tour – if the city of origin is local, one would hope they’d hire locals. If its origin city is NY or LA, the hiring would get done there – if you’re not sure on this one, send it anyway and I’ll let you know.)
- The company pays their actors – Please ensure this wasn’t a school performance or done by a company that identifies as a community theater or amateur theater (again, if you’re not sure on this one, send it anyway and I’ll figure things out)
- The performance was a full production, not a staged reading, developmental showing, etc.
- The performance is from the current month. I’m not able to go backwards – if you’re emailing me in September, it should be for a show that had performances in the month of September. I will publish each month’s results between the 1st and 5th of the following month. (September results between October 1st and 5th, October results between Nov 1st and 5th, and so on). If the project ran over a period of 2 months, and you’re sending me info in the 2nd month, I may have already included it in the previous month’s count. I’m happy to collect stats early!! If it’s May and rehearsals are already underway for something that’s performing in June, send me the stats and I’ll hold onto them until the month that the show goes up.
