It is time for me to say goodbye. Please go to this post on the Bitching Post for a very important announcement.
I'm really shocked that I'm the first person to post about this, but they canceled AAA's tonight because the agents didn't show up. So all of us that got there at seven something in the morning. And made the triumphant return after work from 7 to 10 at night all dressed up got told that the agents didn't show up. I feel like complaining to the union won't even do anything because I just wanted a freaking agent so what does one even do . Bummer
It was disappointing indeed :(
This is absolutely not okay...please say something to Equity
Is there usually a theatreworks non-eq/EMC open call?
Yeah, I think it happened already earlier this year.
They will normally have an open call in the summer.
Had to give up my appointment time. Open slot for tomorrow's call at 5:45pm. Book it! :)
Hey anyone have info if these appts for tomorrow are full? And I'm assuming it's at the equity bldg?
The audition is in Norwalk, CT at the theater.
Does anyone know if Pearl has seen non-Equity in the past?
not when I've gone the past two years, but maybe I just chose bad days? (I'm trying to come up with excuses to go)
I feel like you might have luck tomorrow
They do- time permitting! It's a three-day audition, so it's all about which day is the non-busy day which can sometimes be difficult to predict. Keep your eyes on AU- this is the kind of audition that this site is made for because I can almost guarantee you that one of the days they will definitely be able to see non-equity and one of the days they will be all-appointments-booked-alternate-list-only-may-not-even-see-all-the-equity-actors busy (that's a crazy amount of hyphens)
you know what. 2 years ago i got seen. not sure what day though. but yes, check AU
What time do doors open?
What's the line looking like this morning?
This looks wide open so far. Half a dozen AEA signed up, about the same EMC, at 9 AM. Didn't check non-eq list, but there were only about 15 people in line when the doors opened.
Thanks! Do we know whose in the room?
I'm not there, but Jessi Blue Gormenzano is supposed to be in the room every day.
update: Jessi is in the room. Monitor just went in to admonish her, as she's been redirecting the pieces (as a result, the 10:30 group just started at 10:45. And the day only began at 10!) Still wide open for AEA, all groups are open, but the monitor is likely to hold off on standbys for a while to try to catch up.
Any updates? How are things looking after lunch?
Non-equity update please? Break legs!
Bump on non-eq
Just went in, non-eq, got seen in the very next group! It's dead here everyone come by!! Super nice people.
Non-eq update?? Any seen? Not sure if its too late to head there now..let us know please!...Break legs!
Wide open! Non Equity can walk in and be seen.
38 EMC & 20ish non-eq. They accepted the unofficial list
What about AEA appointments? Busier than yesterday?
Non-eq list in the 30s; none called yet
Confused about the posts: Non eq can walk in and be seen or none called yet? Thank you!!
EMC called yet?
Non eq could walk in and be seen on yesterday. Auditions and this post started on yesterday. Check time stamps of posts. I hope non equity are as lucky today and tomorrow! Break legs!
Could someone post when they start calling EMC?
Any info on AEA appointment availability for Monday 5/23
AEA appointments still available all day. I just arrived and was put into the next group.
Non-eq released until after lunch (2:30)
EMC asked to stick around
Anyone know if they accept headshots, if someone doesn't get seen?
As of 2:45, they've called only 6 EMCs
Any updates for non equity folks?
Still only at 6 EMCs and most of the equity slots are filled, so it's safe to say non-eq won't be seen today.
For what it's worth, they ended up getting through a number of non-eqs at the end of the day. There were only like five of us there who did not get seen.
How early did people arrive today?
What time do the doors open at Pearl to sign up tomorrow?
Does anyone know how serious they are about not showing up before 10:30? Also I can't seem to find out where they are being held. Thanks for the info guys!
500 8th Avenue - between 35th/36th Streets
4th Floor - Room #406
This call is being run by NYMF's Casting Director Michael Cassara. He's well organized and treats auditioners with respect. I doubt you can do any wrong by following the instructions he laid out. If he says don't show up before 10:30, I'd respect that.
were any Aldonza appointments released for Ivoryton Playhouse?
Does anyone know if they will be seeing non-equity tomorrow for the open call?
It's actually not an open call tomorrow, it's an EPA. You may know the difference and were just in a hurry, but for others who use the terms Open Call and EPA interchangeably, it should be clarified that an Open Call is exactly that: open to all actors, regardless of union status. If you're non-eq but arrive earlier than AEA actors to an Open Call, you'll be seen before they are. AEA never hosts Open Calls in their building, and the union does not require such auditions on any contract. The union DOES require EPAs (Equity Principle Auditions), and sets rules on who can be seen and when. Just adding some clarification here, for newcomers who may not know the difference between the two. Here's hoping dozens of non-eqs get seen tomorrow!
The listing does say "open casting call", by the way. They indicated in the notes that EPA rules apply but I see where the OP was coming from. :)
Anyone have any info on this?
Bump. What's the madness look like this morning?
I'm not there yet, but I'm trusting actorsequity that says it's an EPA, but I was confused by the backstage listing, as well.
How's the EMC and non equity list looking?
About 20 EMC and 20 non-eq... Already calling EMC people. I think everyone should get seen!
Bump for emc/ non eq!
Anyone know if they will keep the list open? I can't get there until 1...
If someone could post if they end up not staying until 5:30 or close the list, it would be much appreciated! I'm stuck at work until 4 and might try to run over if they're still seeing people.
I could be wrong here, but if this is a required call I think they have to stay...again I could be wrong. But whether they will close the list to non eq...anyone know?
Bump. Are appointments still available?
Anyone know what time they are taking lunch?
Bump! Any noneq called yet?
Non-eq list still open... Sign says for non-eq to check back at 11:30. They'll probably start seeing non eq shortly after that.
Non equity come back after lunch (1-2)
It's an EPA so they cannot leave early.
Appointments before lunch are filled. Called through about 9 on the EMC.
Does anyone know how many total are on the EMC list? (I.e. How soon after lunch might noneq start getting seen...trying to decide if it's worth going back if I have to work later in the afternoon) Thanks!!
Any updates now that they're on lunch?
Lots of appointments still available, starting at 2:30
Bump? What's going on up there appointment/EMC wise?
Just really curious to know if they ended up seeing non-eq today or not.
If girls are at 1 does anybody know what time we should show up? I know they don't accept unofficials but I don't know if anybody has been to the regular dancer (not Rockette) call in the past for the Christmas Spectacular and knows what's a good time to arrive to line up!
Just to confirm, I believe the female dancer call begins at 2pm! And I was wondering the same about a good time to lineup. Any vets to this audition have insight?
There's going to be a lot of girls who show up at the crack of dawn because they're coming from out of town and have nowhere else to go. In the past, they usually don't let people into the building until the group auditioning before them is done (so if the boys are at 10, they won't let girls into the building until way later). Chances are that as long as you get there a couple hours early, you'll be seen no problem. Definitely not in the first couple of groups- but you'll be seen!
You're correct, it's at 2! Didn't catch that I typed the wrong number. And thank you for the info, it's very helpful!
Bump! Any ladies there yet?
About 30 men currently for the 10am male call. No women yet.
Has anyone heard of when appointments are for ensemble girls?
Is the men's list closed yet?
No appointments given out for women. About 50 girls lined up right now.
Does anyone know what to wear for the non-rockette dancer call?
