HOW TO WRITE A BIO

A bio is a chance to brag about your work but also show who you are as a person.  It’s also not a place for you to personally thank every member of your familyfor their support. Unless no one besides your family is going to see the play you’re in, it’s best to limit the "thank yous" and avoid inside jokes. Make your bio something everyone who sees your play will care about.

 

You’ll want to list a couple of credits; a few of your favorites or you are most known for. If you don’t have any, this is a perfect place to say "[Your name] is making her theatrical debut.

  • Write in 3rd person

  • Be nice and appropriate 

  • No inside jokes

  • Keep them brief

  • Be honest

The directors will remove any bio that violates these rules.
