Member Handbook – 2 – How to Join



There are four ways to join ACTRA.

  1. Land a qualifying role in an ACTRA production and join as an Apprentice.
  2. If you are a member of another performer union such as Equity or SAG-AFTRA and you land a qualifying role in an ACTRA production, you can join ACTRA as a full member. Members of Equity may join in this manner for a reduced initiation fee.
  3. You can join the ACTRA Additional Background Performer program after you have worked as a background performer for 15 days on any ACTRA set within the preceding 12-month period. 1600 BG hours as an AABP member may be used as a first “credit” to join the Apprentice program.
  4. Recent graduates of an approved performance program may join the Apprentice program within 60 days of graduation.
