Hey gentleman, anyone ever been to a Phoenix open call? Do they accept unofficial lists, or are we all lining up until 9:30?
I believe they DO accept unofficial lists, but my butt will be in line, anyway.
PS: Some of y'all must be preparing by watching my videos from my HS production...
What time can we start signing up for the alternate list?
Is tomorrow's audition by appointment only?
yes, it is. but they said they will be doing a waitlist, and seeing people when they can.
^Thanks, I just noticed that discrepancy on Backstage, myself, and realized it said "appointments" if I'd just scrolled down...
Lesson learned: Read the entire posting. Well, we'll see what the wait list looks like in the morning :-)
Just showed up to the building- they aren't letting me upstairs until someone from Ripley shows up... Anyone have any idea if I should wait or start a list? Do they typically take lists?
Update: we are waiting inside, and there is an unofficial list.
How many on the list so far? And does RCL typically accept unofficial lists?
There's about 8 of us in line. Idk if the usually take the list...
how many peeps there? monitor say when they're closing the list?
also, is 16 bars of whatever fine, or does it have to be the audition song they posted? i was a bit confused w that
uh, I'm definitely going off the email from DECasting saying 16 bars of pop/rock in the style of 70's/80's..What song are you talking about??
Maybe it was callback material? Nevermind me :) it was on the DE website but it was 32 bars so I figured that can't be it
Ohhh I JUST saw this on the website as well!
WELP, it's too late Imma go in with what I prepared.
Break platforms y'all!
Hello beauties! The list is still open as of right now! There is material on the website- but they are not requiring that you sing it. Bring what you are comfortable with, and sing your heart out!
Did she do callbacks ITR?
Yall- it's DEEEAAAD... I was done in like 5 mins! They are gonna finish up at 1:30 at the latest so boogie on down if you want to get seen!
Is it over already?
How's it looking? Anyone there?
Non eq at 10
11 on non-eq list as of 7:30
How about equity? Crowded?
How's it looking? Any EMC?
It's not too crowded. Only about 40 in line. No way to tell yet how many emc
Haha, thanks! Of course, I keep forgetting how early it still is :-)
I saw maybe 8 emc on the list? Wide open
Now that this call has started, how's it looking? Appointments and such?
Merrily, a bump! What news? How goes't?
How's this going?
Noneq dismissed until after lunch (1-2).
Any info on Equity appointments/alts?
How are appointments/EMC numbers looking?
At 11:45, I was 14 on the EMC list, and told to come back at 2!
How many on the non eq list.
I signed up at 43 on non eq list about an hour ago
How is the Emc list looking?
Post-lunch appointment/EMC update? Any info much appreciated.
Equity appointments pretty open from 3:10 on. EMC called through #4
They basically dismissed 10+
Monitor just said she might be able to see the first 10 non-eqs, but that everyone else should go and leave a drop-off.
Please note there are still 20 people sitting in the hallway.
How far have they gotten on the EMC list? Anyone know?
Just to clarify - did they dismiss EMCs or just non-eq after 10? Thanks!!
The hall monitor with red hair is being a pain in the ass.
What's going on over there?
So did non-eq actually get seen or?
They actually saw every non-Eq who was present at the end of the call.
Lesson: Don't listen to people who are trying to kill your dreams. I think everyone at this call knows who I'm talking about! You just never know what's going to happen at these calls. Glad I listened to my gut and I felt bad for those who left because of aforementioned inconvenience.
@nicnac, did the monitor say something to non eq to make them leave?
Any updates? Thx!
Did they accept the unofficial list?
The monitor just told me that casting wanted to make it clear that they would only cast actors under 18 in the teen roles.
^ But when I asked if that meant able to play 18, or legitamately 18, she said that's up to me. So if people ask you all the time what college you're going to like they do to me, I'd come out to this audition! Pretty empty & taking Non-Eqs steadily.
Good to know! People ask me what HS I go to all the time, so I'm definitely going back lol :-)
Are they seeing non eq?
Whoops, sorry. Didn't see you post nicnac. Thanks for the update!
I know there is the 18 year old male part.. but is there any point for females over 20 to go to this call? All of the roles are 12-14...I may be short, but those who are there, you are saying they are definitely casting true to age?
I'm a short male and got a positive reception (aka no "why the hell are you here?" glare) in the room, if that helps. It's super empty- I was literally my own group.
So if it is this empty today it is likely tomorrow will be empty as well? (I can't make it today but have a half-day at school tomorrow, so I'm going then.)
bump on if girls should go down?
I would guess that it'll be empty tomorrow, too.
jaylady- if you legitimately read young, just go. What's the worst that could happen?
@bwaylvsong, thanks boo! off i goooo
I would not recommend going if you are older than 18. They are truly casting children in these roles, unless otherwise noted.
Who was in the room please?
Beebee, I guess I just don't see the harm in going, especially since it's so empty. I mean... if you can stand next to a real 12-14 year old and look/feel the same age, why wouldn't you get cast? And furthermore, how would casting even know your age beyond "this guy has a Master's, so he must be well over 18"?
John Ambrosino, Producer
Merri Sugarman, CD
Aaron Jodoin, Accompanist
Just repeating exactly what was said to me in the room.
@bwaylvsong - you were probably in my line! :) i gotta know- what did you sing ITR?!
There was nobody else in my line, as far as I know! I sang "Watch Me Soar."
Did anyone that came today at noon for open dance call get any other information after they sang?
No they pretty much let everyone leave.They asked asked girls who brought pointe shoes to do the ballet combination on pointe. Besides that nothing that I know of.
Where do you guys film your audition videos for submissions? I feel like there is an art to this. Is a room at Ripley, an accompanist and an iphone good enough? Thanks
ooops- sorry. wrong thread. Reposting to Bitching Post.
Just starting this early. I know the deadline is at 5. Post if you hear anything
Already a thread for this in callback corner
