• Greater Philadelphia Annual Auditions @ other 03/11/2018  12:07am

    Hey guys!

    I recently got an appointment for the Greater Philadelphia Annual Auditions.

    My question is, is there anybody on here that has experience with these auditions? If so, how effective have they been in getting theaters in philly to take you seriously enough to get a callback?

    I have local housing in Philly and it's obviously so close to NYC, so I'd love any and all gigs there haha. Please let me know of your experiences!


    Are you equity, non-equity, or a college student? This will be my third year participating (one year on the college day and two on the non-Union) and each year I’ve had callbacks from the GPAA’s. Some theatre’s solely cast their season from this audition and I booked a gig last year that I never even saw on playbill from these. Different theatres show up for each of the days (with many attending all three where applicable- you can check the website for the list of attendees for last years) and I would say it is a very effective audition in getting theatres to come and getting spots in their season filled. Break a leg!

    @Spicedwafer thanks! yeah I'll be attending the non-union auditions. Seems like it's worth it, huh? haha

    @spicedwafer did any of the offers you get include housing? Do any of you think it would be worth going if you didn't have guaranteed housing yourself?

  • Maine State Intern Audition @ other 03/23/2018  12:09pm

    What time are people planning on getting here? Since it's organized between non eq and interns is it necessary to get their extremely early for the intern audition?


    Also wondering when guys are getting there like are any guys planning to get there super early and then come back at 2. Also for first time summer stock people has anyone done this before and know if it’s better to go for the intern call or the non-eq call?

    My friend went last year as a regular non eq and in his singing audition they asked him if he would take an internship so I don’t think it matters! I think they will see on your resume if you are in college and ask if you would consider an internship

    laducabitch 03/23/2018  6:06pm

    INTERNS what time are you guys planning on getting there? Idk how early or how many people are going

    Beltyourfaceoff 03/23/2018  8:15pm

    how dance-y is the dance call since the three shows require different levels/types of dance?

    Han 03/23/2018  10:46pm

    Bump on dance requirements ^

    Kitty94 03/23/2018  11:10pm

    Anyone know if they take unofficial lists or if it’s safer to just come a half hour before your call

  • West Side Story (SummerStage @ Leonia) @ Ripley Grier 520 03/23/2018  10:52pm

    Haven't seen a post for this yet so I'm starting one now! I'm a little confused about what call to go to: I'm not the best dancer so I was planning on just going to the vocal call at 1...


    oop now im even more confused because on backstage it says tomorrow's an open call but in their website it looks like tomorrow is just callbacks

  • Do not work there. It’s a terrible place to work. I got scabbies.

    How many non eq on the list?

    bfabitch 03/23/2018  9:40am

    Just announced they will not be seeing non-eq, but accepting drop offs. They will still see EMC, time permitting.

    Tesseracts93 03/23/2018  10:04am

    Anyone know who is ITR today?

    anony123 03/23/2018  12:01pm

    How's it looking today? How many on the Alt list?

    JasonDru 03/23/2018  1:45pm

    Dear non eq's: I know it's silly to bring up because they didn't even take the unofficial list, but it's really disheartening how unsupportive we've been with each other in terms of transferring unofficial lists. I had work so I signed up on the unofficial list this morning and just stopped by to do a drop off and saw that there were 10 names on the official list but the unofficial list was still downstairs outside. I just wish we could be more supportive of each other and not try to jump in front of each other. Again, they aren't seeing Non eq anyway, but I feel like this is been happening a lot lately.

    ialwaysforgetmypassword 03/23/2018  2:01pm

    Whoops. I meant "it's silly because they aren't even seeing non eqs". Not that they didn't take the unofficial. They didn't get a chance e to because it was left outside.

    ialwaysforgetmypassword 03/23/2018  2:03pm

    Any info on the alt list or who’s ITR? Thanks so much!

    Proud Dog Mom 03/23/2018  2:25pm

    Any updates - ALT list / who is ITR? Thanks!

    AKW 03/23/2018  2:40pm

    It’s a ghost town here; AEA alts are basically walking in.

    JasonDru 03/23/2018  2:55pm

    Are they seeing EMC ?

    Anyone know how many EMC or alternates so far?

    13 non-member at 10:00.

    clickhereandsave 03/23/2018  9:57am

    They just took the non-eq list upstairs!

    clickhereandsave 03/23/2018  10:09am

    Is the list closed? If they’re already calling noneq, I for sure missed my number

    BackeBabe 03/23/2018  10:39am

    No non eq have been seen yet.

    KitKatKween 03/23/2018  10:56am

    Update on appts/alternate list?

    FearfullyWonderfullyMade 03/23/2018  10:59am

    Lunch is at 1. Can someone update if non eq starts getting seen? Thanks!!!!!

    Hurry up and wait ... 03/23/2018  11:41am

    Hi, Did the monitor or theatre personnel say anything about accents for 39 Steps for the EPA? Sometimes I hear of theatres saying not to worry about them for the initial call, but I also know that is the minority. Just to be prepared. Thank you!

    sing_happy 03/23/2018  11:43am

    The sides taped to the wall have things like “German accent” written on them and no one has said anything that I’m aware, so I’m pretty sure they expect accents.

    clickhereandsave 03/23/2018  11:54am

    Thanks so much for your response!

    sing_happy 03/23/2018  11:54am

    ANY movement or infinite on alts/emc numbers?

    Hurry up and wait ... 03/23/2018  12:27pm

    And by that I meant update.

    Hurry up and wait ... 03/23/2018  12:47pm

    And by that I meant update.

    Hurry up and wait ... 03/23/2018  12:52pm

    15/16 alts. Not sure about EMC.

    Several Equity members signed up on the lunch list, so expect that alt total to go up.

    VorpalDormouse 03/23/2018  1:31pm

    If anyone has even a guesstimate about EMCs, the noneqs would appreciate it!

    BackeBabe 03/23/2018  1:57pm

    Thanks! If you get any more info I appreciate these updates!!!!

    Hurry up and wait ... 03/23/2018  1:58pm

    Any updates on the EMC list would be GREATLY appeciated in the non eq box.

    KitKatKween 03/23/2018  2:31pm

    24/31 alternates seen
    15/18 EMC

    BackeBabe 03/23/2018  2:54pm

    Have they started on the non eq list yet?

    ialwaysforgetmypassword 03/23/2018  3:14pm

    Nope. Not yet.

    clickhereandsave 03/23/2018  3:32pm

    Thank you so much for the update! If someone can post when non eq starts being seen that would be super helpful :-)

    ialwaysforgetmypassword 03/23/2018  3:43pm

    Can do if we start the non-eq list. Heard a few minutes ago they were running about a group behind, so no change to alts/emc.

    clickhereandsave 03/23/2018  4:04pm

    Not looking good for non eq?

    ialwaysforgetmypassword 03/23/2018  4:42pm

    They took number 1 into the last group. :)

    clickhereandsave 03/23/2018  4:57pm

    Thank you clickhereandsave for being great about updates :-)

    List is being transferred as we speak, I'll let you guys know what's up!

    Equity members: call seems a bit dead. Head over if you can!!

    serenitymoon123 03/23/2018  8:21am

    Can someone let me know if they announce whether or not they are keeping people to dance today?

    MichaelScott 03/23/2018  8:21am

    Are they seeing noneq?

    Oliviagreco 03/23/2018  8:44am


    trustfundbby 03/23/2018  8:58am

    Bump for seeing noneq

    wheatfree 03/23/2018  9:06am

    they are not specifically asking people to stay and dance. everyone is welcome to attend the dance call.

    non eq female singers are being seen

    aaronburrrn 03/23/2018  9:29am

    What is non eq singer list numbers like rn?

    baconeggandcheese 03/23/2018  9:50am

    Would people recommend that non-eq men go to the call today, or just wait until tomorrow.

    Davinci 03/23/2018  10:02am

    What’s the female non-eq dancer list at, and is the list still open?

    danz4thegawdz 03/23/2018  10:11am

    I was under the impression the only non eq they hire is in their apprentice program. Anyone know?

    Damn Yankee 03/23/2018  10:27am

    So are they seeing non-eq or no?

    itbeme 03/23/2018  10:35am

    itbeme 03/23/2018  11:14am
