    Likelihood of non-union getting seen tomorrow? Anyone?

    Bumpity-bump-BUMP! Thanks!!

    Koolkid16 02/22/2018  8:38pm

    Also, I can’t find the listing anymore, but recently saw this was for female dancers? I had it in my mind it was for singers. Can anyone clarify? At Ripley 520, correct? Thanks!

    Koolkid16 02/22/2018  9:24pm

    should be on backstage

    karatemaster111 02/22/2018  9:29pm


    Toothpaste 02/22/2018  10:50pm

    According to AEA website, the female dance call is at Ripley at 9:30 and the female singer call is at 2 at AEA. Kind of odd having it in two locations...

    littleeagle 02/22/2018  11:15pm

    Yes! Thank you very very much!

  • Forestburgh Playhouse @ Pearl Studios 02/22/2018  8:39pm

    Hi there! Long shot here...especially since the call isn't even til the 3rd... but does anyone know, from years past maybe, if Forestburgh sees non-eq at their ECC call? Of course I know it's impossible to know how much time there will be in the day..etc...but I ask because their website says that non-eq must go to A1's, and it's only for their resident company...any knowledge would be greatly appreciated!


    In my experience, they almost never see non union (at least at dance calls - those are the ones I have attended and can speak to).

  • Theatre Barn Musicals 2/23 @ other 02/22/2018  3:20pm

    Did day one speed up at all?

    Also, when do the doors open at the studio?


    Wondering the same. I'm trying to gauge when I should get there tomorrow

    tinymover 02/22/2018  3:26pm

    They sped up a bit today but it was still slow. But I did the musicals last year, and they ran out of fairly normal speed. So maybe it was just because it was monologues.

    ialwaysforgetmypassword 02/22/2018  4:16pm

    I believe tomorrow starts at 10:00am till around 3:30pm not sure when doors open!

    LittlebigCharacter 02/22/2018  5:54pm

    Do they accept an unofficial list?

    soprano10 02/22/2018  6:39pm

    Does this company provide housing?

    Okayokay 02/22/2018  6:44pm


    bananasmoothie 02/22/2018  6:49pm

    They accept an unofficial list and I'm almost certain have housing

    ialwaysforgetmypassword 02/22/2018  6:55pm

    Housing is provided.
    I’m just a wee bit nervous after reading last years auditions.


    LittlebigCharacter 02/22/2018  7:02pm

    Oh GOD I hope its not like last year!!!

    Hello12Hello13Hello 02/22/2018  7:16pm

    Sorry, I'm a little confused by what I saw from last year...should the unofficial list be up inside or outside? Thanks to anyone who can help clear that up

    tinymover 02/22/2018  7:44pm

    Wow, that thread is intense. Is it worth going?

    SpecialSkillsSection 02/22/2018  7:48pm

    I want to hope it’s worth it. But again, I am nervous based on Gig & Tell and last years auditions. See if the season is right for you, of course. Put everything into perspective.

    LittlebigCharacter 02/22/2018  7:52pm

    Did they call names before hand yesterday? Or did they transfer the list themselves?

    Jgyory 02/22/2018  8:43pm

    Did they call names before hand yesterday? Or did they transfer the list themselves?

    Jgyory 02/22/2018  8:44pm

    Last year if I remember correctly they used the list the actors started, no transferring. The whole pianist thing was pretty dramatic, I was there for “the speech” and it was intense, not gonna lie. That said, he played my music beautifully and they were lovely in my audition and callbacks. I didn’t end up working with them so I can’t comment beyond that!

    FierceConversations 02/22/2018  9:48pm

    I'm a bit confused about the posting on Backstage. It said that they were having auditions on the 24th too, but the hours are shorter. Does that mean there will be actual auditions then, or is that really their callback date?

    I'm sorry for being a Paranoid Polly, I just can't come tomorrow because of work and I don't want to miss this audition!

    Megan 02/22/2018  10:07pm

    Today the monitor transferred the unofficial himself and then called people to line up in groups of ten at a time. The team was super friendly. Hope this helps!

    secretsondheim 02/22/2018  10:20pm

    There is still an audition Saturday. It's short because they usually do callbacks after.

    ialwaysforgetmypassword 02/22/2018  10:22pm

    ^ agreed! As of now, I'm gonna assume it's another open call

    broadway94 02/22/2018  10:23pm

    Tinydancer, usually people put the list in the vestibule until ripley opens (so inside the first door but. It inside the next one)

    ialwaysforgetmypassword 02/22/2018  10:24pm

    Whew, that’s a relief. Thanks!!

    Megan 02/22/2018  10:30pm

    What time are people starting the list? I feel like it's going to be an early one

    Hello12Hello13Hello 02/22/2018  10:43pm

    Wish it wasn’t gonna be an early crack of dawn one to save on some zz’s for this entire month lol but yeah, probably...

    LittlebigCharacter 02/22/2018  10:50pm

    So where exactly is this place? V confused & never been.

    Coffeewithachanceofcoffee 02/22/2018  10:54pm

    It's never been necessary to start a list super early for this theater but people have been starting lists early for everything this year

    ialwaysforgetmypassword 02/22/2018  10:56pm


    LittlebigCharacter 02/22/2018  11:08pm

    Ok so I’d never been to this ripely before today! despite the address posted on the listing, I was on auto pilot I went to the new studio on 38th street and 8th. It is actually on 55th and 8th. 939 8th ave! Close to where Nola is!

    playbilllala 02/22/2018  11:38pm

    Do they normally type at their open calls?

  • St Michael’s @ Ripley Grier 520 02/22/2018  5:56am

    Gooood morning! Noneq list is started and taped outside — someone started an EMC list (on the same page as the noneq list) but just so that person knows, this is an EPA so that list unfortunately won’t apply 😕


    Hi friends (New here)
    Double checking - so at ripley, emc’s are are considered non-eq?
    And for this, do you suggest simply putting your name down and coming back at the start of the call? Or sticking around in case the list isn’t taken?

    Breakleggiesyall 02/22/2018  6:20am

    EMC line up with equity at EPAs, so stick around 😊

    02/22/2018  6:36am

    what time do they open the doors to Ripley?

    leeniebeans 02/22/2018  6:44am

    @breakleggiesyall your EMC status allows you to be seen before the other non-eq, but the monitor can't just take people's word that they're EMC and honor an unofficial EMC list. You have to show the monitor your EMC card in order for your name to go on the list - make sense? It is the same at every EPA at every building; buildings can't make their own rules that don't adhere to union rules. To clarify also: at an ECC, EMC's and non eq go on the same list. Best of luck! <3

    Sarah_tmg 02/22/2018  7:52am

    How's this looking? I know there's no sign up yet, but is there a long line for AEA/EMC?

    theRedBedwinek 02/22/2018  8:09am

    Line going halfway around the room, not an AEA/EMC/non-eq separated line, and probably only about 20-25 people here at the most.

    leeniebeans 02/22/2018  8:25am

    Less than 15 on EMC

    Less than 20 on Non-Eq

    ProcessOriented 02/22/2018  9:32am

    What is the non-eq list looking like? Thinking of dropping by.

    guitargirl 02/22/2018  10:12am

    So they're only auditioning for Once today?? I was a little confused by their posting. If I wanted to go in and play the piano for Girl tomorrow, is that even a possible thing? Anyone have info?

    MoverNotAShaker 02/22/2018  12:30pm


    Is this true? Are they not letting you do monologues today? I’m not a musical performer but can’t make tomorrow’s audition.

    RudyPalma 02/22/2018  12:40pm

    They said you can do either a song or a monologue today, not both!
    So maybe that’s how it’s working tomorrow as well

    dobbykat 02/22/2018  12:48pm

    Today is a song OR monologue day. Tomorrow is only monologues.

    pctombs 02/22/2018  12:49pm

    Or maybe you can sing tomorrow if you bring your own instrument; it’s unclear.

    pctombs 02/22/2018  12:51pm

    Thank you!

    RudyPalma 02/22/2018  12:55pm

    If someone can give the number of noneqs they get through when they go to lunch I would be grateful.

    elphie 02/22/2018  1:02pm

    They called up to number 12 on the non eq list. They just called the last group before lunch. It’s been a steady stream of alternates but it’s moving along.

    michxsoprano 02/22/2018  1:10pm

    Does anyone know how many EMC have been seen, and how high the signup is?


    RudyPalma 02/22/2018  1:16pm

    Can anyone please update with who is ITR today?

    DemonBarber 02/22/2018  1:48pm

    Today was just “no accompanist” day, but that’s still a moot point anyway since the only musical on this docket is Once...and we all have to accompany ourselves. And considering the “BYOI” nature of Once, I can’t imagine they won’t see people for it tomorrow. I couldn’t do today either.

    Showbizdreamer 02/22/2018  2:50pm

    ^^^right. I just don't know if it's worth me getting up super early and doing the whole thing tomorrow, because my instrument is the piano.

    MoverNotAShaker 02/22/2018  4:26pm

    How many non-eq were seen today?

    KimmySchmidt 02/22/2018  6:03pm

    I just realized I said today was no accompanist...that’s tomorrow 🙃🙂🙃🙂But it’s still a moot point because...Once

    Showbizdreamer 02/22/2018  6:08pm

    So for tomorrow’s audition, even though there is no accompanist, will there’s be a guaranteed piano in the room? A little hard to drag a piano there for the Once audition...

    I signed up as EMC downstairs. Do we have to resign up upstairs?

    augustmonth 02/22/2018  8:13am

    The list downstairs is simply the order that they take you up to the 16th floor. They check your card because only equity and EMC can go up. Once on the 16th floor you go to the holding area for the theatre you are auditioning for in the order you signed up downstairs. Then the theatre themselves sign people in for appointments or the alternate and EMC lists
