Non-Equity Deputy

July 25, 2011

***UPDATE 1/11/13: Because we get traffic to the site every day with people looking for this resource, and it’s been over a year since Non-Equity Deputy went defunct, we here at Green Room Blog are starting our own version of this site. Head over to The Actors Deputy section of our site to search for a theatre you’ve just got an offer from or leave a review on a theatre you’ve worked at!***

***UPDATE 1/4/12: It’s come to my attention that the site is currently down. I can’t find any information on what happened through my good ol’ pals google and twitter, so if anyone knows what’s going on with the site, please feel free to share it with us!***

One of the crazy (and fun!) things about being an actor is that your employer changes on a frequent basis. This makes our lives exciting, but it also means that a little bit of research and caution are due before accepting any job, especially with the career moves that are made before the union and an agent are involved.

Don’t you kinda wish that there was a website like RateMyProfessor.com, but for regional theatre companies? Well, wish no more! I ran into this genius site called Non-Equity Deputy the other day that lets actors via message boards discuss the living and working situations at regional theatre and touring companies.

Now of course, you have to take some of the negative opinions with a grain of salt, perhaps, but isn’t that a great resource for actors trying to decide if [insert random non-union summer gig here] is worth it? And also, what a clever name for a website, guys! Bravo.

Just thought I’d share what I found 🙂

    This is a great idea! Too bad there aren’t more theater companies on here, it could (and should!) be really helpful when researching productions!

      If you know of a new one to add, email them on the contact page! If we all contribute, it’ll only get more useful! 🙂

    I loved the site, but it’s been inoperable for about a month. Any ideas why????

      No idea. I’ve done some googling and can’t seem to find anything. Bummer!

    nonequitydeputy.com became a trashing site. People just seemed to be trashing Theatre’s and Theatre’s trashing actors. A big mess. I think this is why it was taken down. But that’s just my 2 cents. 🙂
