Mr John Bond
Recruitment Officer
ABC Threatrical Auditions
99 Shakespeare Walk, London EC1 9YH

Dear Mr Bond,

Re: (Enter Position / Ref here)

I am applying for the above position which I believe would be an excellent opportunity for me to capitalise on my extensive acting career. The role appears to be an ideal prospect because of my theatrical training and professional work experience.

I have nearly 10 years theatrical experience and have made 6 appearances. My most recent appearance was in Hello Dandy, at the Glebe Theatre in London, directed by John Holmes. I played the lead role as Tom. Prior to this I played another lead role as Master Paul in John Finney's adaptation Sail Away, which was hosted at the Albany Theatre in Manchester, directed by Lynda Galbraith.

As you can see from my resume, I have also made two film appearances, the first was Hitting back, directed by Hank Kuzman in which I played Jim Havers. This was preceded by my role as Martin Collins in the film The Final Return, directed by Alan Partridge in which I played hard man Mark Gulliver. My diverse professional experience also includes several television guest appearances in Fox TV and XYZ channels. In addition, I have also appeared on commercials.

I believe I can bring this role into life with my unbridled energy, passion, training and diverse professional experience. Please find, enclosed, a copy of my Curriculum Vitae for your perusal. In the meantime, I look forward to your response at your earliest convenience.

Yours sincerely,

Jake Baxter
