Dear [Mr/Ms/Mx] [Contact Person’s Name],
I’m writing to be considered for the role of Emma in your upcoming production of After Hours. Your colleague, James Foster, recommended that I get in touch with you and, given my personal and professional histories, I think I would be an excellent fit for the role.
As you’ll see from my CV, my previous roles in Wingshine and Coronation Street will help me deliver an accurate and engaging portrayal of your leading character. Like Emma, both Cherry Divine and Hanna Combs are small-town girls whose strong personal values are initially respect-worthy but later cause tension with other characters.
Furthermore, my personal background has enabled me to connect profoundly with the role. My mother was a registered nurse who balanced nights at the hospital with raising a large family. Reading the script, I ached for the early dilemmas Emma faces, and I believe that achieving this level of empathy is crucial for doing the character justice.
I would welcome the opportunity to discuss the role further with you. At your convenience, I’d love to meet for an interview to discuss the role in further detail. You can reach me by phone at 07128 341 244 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
