Wow! Another great question. I'd like to hear other peoples' comments on this topic;
A resume shouldn't include a 'per show' listing, rather, it should be about a page and list a specific period of acting experience (eg. 1989-Present Various Acting Positions). Actors and contractors in general should look to provide a Curriculum Vitae instead, or as well as, to give a more thorough listing of experience. It can be many pages in length.
Aside from the generic CV layout (which can be found in any english reference book or online), my technical (not acting) CV heading "Experience" is layed out in the following manner:
Show (Company Inc., VenueOther
52 Pick Up Technical Manager, Rigger, LDTheater Simple, Rechabites Hall, NorthbridgeAward: Pick of the Fringe (The West Australian)
Actually, the year should be on the same line as the show, but this board doesn't show 'tabs' or extra spaces.
I wonder how many actors list other details, such as director (I do list the director if s/he is well known), designers or season (winter, june etc)...
When submitting by email, CVs should be in .pdf (adobe portable document) format, and have a cover letter (of course).
I'm sure there will be many more comments to this post...
