Rutgers Theater Alumni network keeps members posted

RTA membersLike many Mason Gross Theater alumni, Raymond McAnally graduated and entered the grind of casting calls and auditions. Along the way, he met fellow alums and realized they could use a way to connect.

In 2008, McAnally launched the Rutgers Theater Alumni (RTA) website, which is designed to foster networking among Mason Gross Theater grads. The site features a database that lists alumni according to category: actors, playwrights, designers, stage managers, etc. In addition, an alum may post an image, a bio, and a link to his or her personal website.

The goal, according to McAnally, is that the site will “evolve into a job-search database.”

Registered Rutgers Theater alumni receive weekly email bulletins featuring news about auditions, events, job opportunities, casting calls, and even sublets.

More information is available at the RTA website. To contact the site or to request the weekly bulletin, e-mail them. The RTA does not sell e-mail addresses.
