It is time for me to say goodbye. Please go to this post on the Bitching Post for a very important announcement.
Anyone know if there's a chance for non Union today?
You won't know until the monitor arrives and the call starts
How does it look up there now?
Ain't nobody there, but they just opened the building and there's a short unofficial list someone posted on the wall with like 3 people on it.
Fantastic. Thank you!
It's dead here. I'm number 5 on the non union female list. The monitor just said that they will see non union males time permitting.
Wait...I forgot the listed times were weird, guys at 9 and ladies at 11?? That just sounds strange...
Yeah, for some reason I thought men were at 2 today. Ah well.
I just wonder wehhyyyyyyy each one is only two hours....that usually means there's no shot for non eq, but maybe I'm wrong...
Hey, has anyone showed up for this yet?
There were 10 women on the unoffical list outside at 7am
How does it look?
Unofficial at 26 (including one cross-out, one that says EMC by it).
Unofficial list was accepted. Non union is at 28
EMC list up to 20 as of 9:15
Oh, and be nice to the monitor when you get in, he seems like he's having a tough day....
Good to know^^^
Building apparently doesn't open until 9 am. There a sign in the window saying to come back then for auditions

Bump. Anyone hear anything?
Hey everyone! First time going in for Fireside, so I just wanted to check on the usual protocol for their non-Eq calls. Don't want to get my butt out of bed earlier than necessary :P
All I know is they said on the notice that they will NOT be accepting an unofficial list and sign ups start at 8:30am. Hope that helps!
VERY helpful! Thanks! Does anyone know what time they cut off the list?
Reminder-THEY TYPE. Those listings also say that too, so SLEEP 😴
Gah! Bless you! I cherish my sleep.
So to clarify, sign ups begin at 8:30 and auditions begin at 10:30, but it doesn't matter what time you get there because they will be typing?
Helpful stuff above on other Fireside Post. Can we designate one the post for tomorrow so we only need to check one?
Looks like they want everyone to be there by 9:45 and signed up. Then they type. Is the guess.
Hey y'all. I've done 5 contracts with Fireside and every one of those contracts when I was nonunion came out of an open call day. They're super useful, and if you're typed in you'll be given a time slot so you can go about your day
Anyone there yet?
At least 60-70 standing in line on 54th
There's probably 30 people outside the building right now.
Do they usually type by headshot/resume? Or do they type us in person?
65 on the list.
The official list? They're already letting people in?
Is there a list? I thought they specifically said not to start one and it wouldn't be honored...?
Ed (artistic director) came out and had those who were there sign up on the official list. Told to come back for typing at 10am.
Hey y'all, so just to clarify, a gentleman came around with an official list outside and had everyone sign up on a list. He said to be back in the room before 10. The building isn't open yet though.
Anyone know when the building does open?
I read that as in it will be run as an EPA today, so all the normal protocol that goes with it. I think the first come, first serve is about signing up on your appropriate list, and depending on how time goes, they'll get to EMC and non-eq. The no appointments part is clear.
In EPA in which everyone can be seen regardless of type or a typed open call with priority for Equity folks? Confused...
Everyone goes on one list. The EPA and ECC are/were different days.
Today is not an EPA 😂😂✌🏻️
Line is around the corner and stretching down Broadway.
It's 8:30 now. The line is already out around Broadway.
I keep hearing there's still confusion about whether or not they're typing...WHHYYY... You guys, every posting for today said they're typing at 10.
When pre-planned, typing is 99.9% of the time done at the start of the audition day so they can decide who they would like to hear and can send the rest home early. Since fireside specifically said sign up between 8:30-9:45, I would be sure to be there before the end of that window of time so they don't close the list or anything. Also be physically room ready (dressed, hair, makeup, etc) by 9:45 because fireside typically types in person meaning they march a group of people into the room so casting can make a decision based of your H/R AND seeing you in person. Once everyone is typed, those typed in will be told to stay to sing their 16 bars and it will run normally from there. Fireside is great because they give you a time to come back so you aren't waiting at Nola all day. Clear as mud? Lol Hope that helps! Welcome to audition life!
Are they collecting H/R at sign up or at typing?
What floor is sign up on?
They are collected headshots at sign in and putting your sign in number on your headshot
Thanks! Does anyone know if there is a stapler/cutter for H/R at Nola?
Can anyone confirm whether or not they've cut off the list
They have cut the list off at 300. The list is now closed.
They just cut it off at 300 upstairs. Break legs, everyone!
Accepting drop offs?
They closed the list at 300 and are NOT accepting drop offs
No drop offs
I thought the whole point of typing out was to NOT get up at 4:30...I can't right now. Anyways carrot on with your day and break legs to the 'chosen ones'
Sorry, this is fucking ridiculous. I got there 9:15 which is technically half an hour early. Cutting off the line at 9:45 is one thing, but when there's a line around the block of people who FOLLOWED YOUR INSTRUCTIONS AND ARE ON TIME and then not letting them sign in, that is unacceptable.
With you bwaylvsong...they're typing anyway so why not just sign everyone up?? Especially those who technically followed directions. Now one has to get up up stupid early just to be typed out...good lawd
They are about to call in 20-40 for typing at 10:05
Heads up: the list is closed!!
Called up to 106 for typing
how is it that you can go to larger calls that are not typing and they can see 400+ plus people...and here they are typing and putting a limit.... :'-(
Because unfortunately open calls have no jurisdiction and they can do whatever they want. My GUESS is that if you weren't able to get on the list, check back a little bit later, toward the end of the call, because there may be an opening, seeing that they were only able to type 300 people. You could also try the ECC tomorrow.. but seeing how busy the open call is, I don't think it's likely you'll get seen there. Best of luck to you!
You guys, it wasn't Fireside's decision to cut off the list for typing. Nola called the fire marshall.
Does anyone know if they're running on time?
They're running pretty behind. I know some males have been given callbacks in the room. Have any females heard about callbacks ITR?
Any updates on how behind they're running would be great!
Can someone post the names of who is ITR? I forgot to take a picture before I left!
What group are they on?
Yes callbacks for ladies in the room! There was Ed Flesch, a younger guy named Herb, and at the piano Kevin I think but I don't know last names!
Hi guys, I have a newbie question. The posting for The Scarlet Letter says "No appointments necessary. Actors will be seen on a first come, first seen basis.", yet it's an EPA. What does this mean exactly? Does this mean there will be no noneq list, and it will be more like an open call? Or something else?
Dont quote me on this, but make sure you are looking at the correct day. Yeaterday they had an EPA at the theater in Sag Harbor and it ran that way (no monitor, 1st come 1st, no appt.) Today is at AEA Center, im fairly certain it will run like a regular EPA there - with a monitor and you having to get on a non-eq list, wait to be seen, etc.
I'm not really sure! I think it was saying that in regards to the EPA today...here's the full thing: "SAG Harbor EPA: An Equity Monitor will not be provided. The producer will run all aspects of this audition. NYC EPA: An Equity Monitor will be provided. Actors with local housing strongly encouraged to attend. Actors will read from sides, provided at the audition. No appointments necessary. Actors will be seen on a first come, first seen basis."
It's an EPA. So it has to be run that way.
Any word on how many EMC / non equity?
Bump for any info
I travelled up to SAG harbor yesterday. That's how the audition ran. Believe today is a normal EPA. Great group and really lovely team. Break legs everyone
Also itr yesterday was Joe Minutillo, dir.; John Sullivan, assoc. prod. and Chloe Dirksen -Reader. Hope that helps.
Soooo as fun as this line outside ... can someone update us outsiders what's gonna be happening?
Bump for appointment availability? EMC/nonunion count? Anything?
No drop offs
Sorry... Wrong thread
Bump for any information?
This is running like a regular EPA. 11 on the EMC list, next available appointment is 10:50
12 EMCs signed up, zero called
23 on Non Eq list. Sides just posted for all roles
Bump! Any EMC called?
Lots of appointments available. No EMC called yet. Everyone in the room was really lovely.
Noneq sent away til after lunch, check back in at 2
Non-eq released for lunch. Come back at 2!
We're any EMC seen before lunch?
No EMCs seen yet today. List is at 18 (though I don't know how many came back after lunch)
All EMC's were sent to lunch around 12:30pm. None were seen before lunch.
2 EMCs called
Two more EMCs were called - that's four in total, so far.
thank you! definitely appreciating the updates.
any more updates on additional EMCs being seen? getting anywhere near the non-eq list?

Sorry, wrong thread.

The Fireside listing on Backstage for B and the B (yet Mamma Mia is still there...) is gone but I see the one for Red House when I swear it wasn't there before, what??? now I understand why people were asking about it.
Is today the the appts for Red House??
Good lord was I just not paying attention or is backstage once again a total mess...
Red house IS doing appointments today...the notice went up only on monday, I think. So you aren't crazy - just last minute posting.
Not sure what the deal with Fireside is...
Does anyone know if they're taking walk-ins or drop-offs?
