Frequently Asked Questions
★ What is StageWon?
Stage Won is a new dynamic website, providing valuable and comprehensive information resources grouped around a networking hub. We aim to be inclusive, promoting the regions as well as the West End, Professionals, aspiring and Amdrams, those both on and behind the stage as well as those in the.
★ Why should I join StageWon?
Firstly, you can create a user account for free. This gives you access to most of the site and allows you to search for reviews, news and much more, as well as sharing information with fellow Audience members who are passionalte about the theatre.
Some of our content and more sophisticated site functionality is only available to paying members, but you can access our Chorus Line content for less than £50 per year – the cost of a sandwich and a skinny latte every month. For this, you get your very own StageDoor – a place where you can post your own content; be it video, reviews, clippings or audio files for others (including professionals involved in the theatre such as casting agents) to see. Chorus Line membership also gives you access to other premium content such as our Masterclass series, hints and tips, ask an expert and much more. For a full list of Chorus Line benefits, click here.
If you are a successful actor or performer, you’ll probably want to upgrade to our Lead Role status. For just over £12 per month this will give you practically unlimited space to post your content and communicate with your fan base. You will be able to send signed electronic photos to those who ‘applaud’ you (with a donation to a charity of your choice for each one sent) and access our concierge service including digslister and unique offers and promotions. If you would like to know more about the Lead Role benefits, click here.

★ What is the Dressing room?
Your Dressing Room is like your wall on Facebook. You can edit your profile, search for friends and colleague, or other StageWon members with the same interests and send messages to those who you have allowed into your Dressing Room (those you have ‘friended’).

To edit your profile, simply click on the ‘Edit your profile’ in the left hand column. Or if you are on your Dressing Room click the pencil icon in the top right hand corner of the box.

If you would like to send someone a message to appear on their Dressing Room door simply highlight the box, “Public” when the write message box appears automatically when you click to see their page. The recipient will be made aware of your post via a notification. Alternatively if you would like to send someone a private message then you can! When you go onto their Dressing Room door the message box will automatically appear. Just make sure you highlight “Private” rather than “Public” to send a private message.
