Paul John Sabino
Hiring Manager
Electrify Acting Studio
7534 Alexandria Avenue
Sacramento, CA 86747

Dear Mr. Sabino,

I am very interested in the Acting position that I learned of through one of my good friends who is also an actress, Jessica Biel. My resume and headshot are attached for your consideration. (Must specifically address the position desired as well as the website or publication of the job advertisement. It is a plus to mention a reference that shows you already have an established connection in the acting field.)

As a recent graduate of the University of California, Los Angeles with a major in Theatre and a minor in World Arts & Cultures, I believe have the experience and training necessary for such a position. My acting skills are notable as portrayed by landing leading roles in many of UCLA’s productions. I have also received an Outstanding College Actor Award in the California State Acting Competition, two years in a row. (Because casting directors go through many applications, it is important that you keep it brief and to the point, while simultaneously making yourself stand out. Go straight to describing significant past experience and any awards you may have received.)

I will be in a large production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and T.S. Eliot’s “Cats” shown at the Pantages Theatre in Hollywood. It would be a privilege to have you in the audience. Two tickets are attached for your admission. (Giving the reader complimentary tickets will help you to showcase your talent to the hiring manager, rather than simply describing it in words. If this is not applicable to your situation, you can also attach clips of reels from past productions, commercials, etc.)

I would like the opportunity to meet with you. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me by phone at (555) 555-5555 or by email at (Give contact information.)

Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to meeting you and scheduling an audition. (Express gratitude for their time.)
