Has anyone auditioned for them before? Do they accept an unofficial list?
They always have in the past. These calls are always super crowded bu extremely well organized.
Are vocal auditions only March 31st? not tomorrow?
Everyone must sing first, then dancing is the first round of callbacks
I heard that they are only casting for Ariel in Footloose? Is this true, or is it for the full season?
Any update? Is there a list up yet?
There is a list for Prather, ivoryton, Joseph and Little Mermaid. Not too many names on any and kind of all over the place in terms of what number people are signed up as (ie huge gaps between taken numbers)!
update? how is the list looking?
This list in now in the 130s
What is the list up to now?
Are they just calling the first few groups now?
Would someone kindly update us if they start typing? Thanks guys! Happy auditioning.
Keep us updated on how things are moving!
Not typing. Bring two headshots and write your starting availability at the top. They have called through 80, but if you let them know you've missed your number they will still honor your spot.
Called headshots thru 80 but have seen about 40 ish people
Called through 120
When is lunch?
The monitors are wonderful!
I heard there is a vocal call tomorrow too? Anyone know if it's open if we can't make it today?
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...
It says 'sign up starts at9:30 which makes me think no unofficial
LOL @bwaylvsong! See y'all in the morning.
what time is everyone thinking about getting there?
Pleeeeaaase not that early, guys! I'll probably get there around 9... since it's an all male call, I can't imagine that they won't see everyone.
I had posted this earlier, but figured I'd ask anyone who knew, does anyone know if they'll allow ladies tomorrow if if we can't attend Tuesday? I still can but there's a reason why I'd prefer to just knock it out tomorrow.
Is a list up yet?
Hey fellas, there is an unofficial list started. It's at number 15.
They're bringing us upstairs and he unofficial list is inside as well!
List is up
.....really? A list already? Sleep in some guys! We don't have to worry about girls today.
are they typing today?
Hey guys, they're up to around 40.
70 names at 7:15, gents
Up to at least 175 at 8:08am...
This is actually kinda disgusting...thank god girls are on a separate day.
Where are all these guys coming from? It's an all male call for a non-eq tour of a racially specific show that requires amazing singers...
List is up to 215 at 8:30am
I never understood people who get actively angry/annoyed that a lot of people show up to an audition and then call out a group of people for being unaware of what a show requires, even if this is blatantly not the case. You guys are contributing to that huge number as much as the guys you deem somehow unworthy of auditioning.
Also is it a surprise that every non-eq twink tenor in NY showed up this morning? Not really.
Could someone please post whether or not they accept the unofficial list when the time comes? Thanks!
Also, list in the early 200's at about 8:40.
281 at 9AM.
RandomBoy, I'm neither angry at nor calling out anyone; just surprised it got so crowded so early. Though when I wrote the post, I was pissed at the MTA, so that's where any perceived anger was coming from lol.
Are they typing?
No word yet
They're not sure whether they will type yet, but the monitor called the first 20 (most of whom are here) and put them "on deck" for the next 27 minutes.
They ARE typing
Bwylvsong -- are they doing it by groups as they call in or trying to type everyone now?
Are they typing now? How's it going down?
Typing by groups of 10
Fuck. I went to work, sure I wouldn't be needed until afternoon. I assume this means they're closing things up?
Basically...I hate Spring Break. All the kids come to town to audition and make things REAL difficult for a week or two.
Any chance they will see ladies that can't make it tomorrow, today?
Do you think they will see us if we are on the list and cannot come until a little later? Or is there no point to come back once typing ends.
Status of typing? Wondering whether or not it's worth it to go back at this point. Ugh
I'm not surprised at all. It's the first non union tour and it's a lot of people's dream show.
Are they closing the call? Or is it worth it to show up later in the day? Any info will be helpful!
Call backs ITR?!
Can we confirm they're typing all the way through the list before they see anyone?
And if they she announces what happens for names not present during typing?
They just called the last group to type
Does that mean the list is closed? Or will they see men who still show up?
I'm pretty sure the list is closed, but I'm not there anymore, so don't take my word for it.
Thank you! Can anyone who is there confirm?
List is closed gents.
Any idea what number they are on and if they are taking lunch?
What time can we start signing up for the alternate list?
Bump. As an alternate how early do they usually start squeezing them in?
Want to jump around auditions tomorrow without missing the slot.
Can we sign up before the call starts or does the alternate list not get started until the company gets there?
Was at the 42nd street call from the same casting company last week and there was an alternative list started when I got there at 9. The call was pretty dead and the monitor would fit people in as much as possible. I had a appointment and was done by 10:30 and she was calling alternates then.
I received an email confirming an open call slot on Tuesday the 31st- does this mean they are seeing singers at the same time as the dancers on Tuesday or I somehow signed up for the wrong thing?
@summerlovin I had the same thing... and I'm also a bit confused about that because the sign up said singers, but the breakdown now says dancers on tuesday...? I'm going to head over tomorrow and ask just in case, and sign up as an alternate if need be I think. I
Bc of demand JDC added an extra singer call for Tuesday. She said if you're a female be prepared to stay for a dance CB if need be. They are doing a open singer call AND dancer call on Tuesday.
Will there be any callbacks to dance for singers tomorrow, like later in the day? Just want to know whether it's necessary to bring dance stuff with me, or if dance callbacks will just be on Tuesday/another day. Thanks!
Status on alternate list? Anything yet?
bump on alternates
Is the open call on Tuesday, 3/31 at Ripley-Grier, Pearl, or other? Can't find a listing for it. Thanks :-)
I woke up sick as a dog so if someone wants my 400-500 appt time slot, email me at email@example.com.
Pearl! At least, that's what I wrote on my calendar after signing up for an appt! I'm not sure where the listing went to...
Hey @performativity, where/how did you schedule an appointment? Just want to make sure I don't show up and get turned away because I didn't sign up. Thanks again :-)
There was a link to an online sign up via Joy Dewing's website, as well as the playbill and backstage postings
My spot is taken, thanks guys!
Please post if/when what number alternates are called!!
Bump any alternates called?
Yes! I would say at least 12 alternates have been called.
Can someone update if/when they cut from 16 to 8 bars? Thank you!
20 alternates called
If we can't make it today, I heard there is a vocal call tomorrow? is that open too?
Anyone at this?
Yeah. Was by appointment only. They were hoping to see a few walk ins at the end of the hour when I was there.
Wha? On playbill I didn't see it saying that. I was hoping to walk in for the afternoon session....hopefully they're not going to cancel it due to lack of turnout?
Anyone know if an unofficial list will be accepted for these EPAs? And what time we're showing up?
Or rather, how the ecc went last week? (Non eq seen? Unofficial list accepted then? Monitor speed? The usual)
All the non-eqs that were on the list last week were seen and if my memory serves me, I recall seeing that the call was pretty much wide open. The EPA may be a different story tomorrow, but that's how the ECC went to my recollection.
Has an unofficial non Eq list been started for this?
ye, there is an unofficial. only a few names on it as of 6:30
How does it look now?
Like 36 on the list when I was there.
What's it looking like for equity? Busy?
Quite open for Equity, 11 EMC, non Eq around 60 I think
Any updates on non-eq?
Who is in the room?
Still appts left for Equity and who's in the room please?
Bump for Noneq
Bump for who is in the room!
Any AEA appts left?
bump for # emcs called
any info would be wonderful!
Who is in the room, please?
No non eqs called yet
A casting assistant, male - really nice :) Don't recall his name
Only a casting assisstant?
Any appointments left?
Anyone there yet? What's it looking like?
When I signed up around 6:30, the female list was around the mid-50s. Only glanced at the men's list but it wasn't very long at all.
50+ at 6:30?!? Do you people sleep at all???
This list was in the 120s for women when I signed a few minutes ago
With the amount of people that I assume will be at this call, do you think they will type?
I wouldn't be surprised if they did. At the very least it's gonna be an 8 car call. Although I was forseeing that when I first saw this posting. Up to about 160 for the ladies btw.
And by car, I mean bar, but im sure everyone will probably know what I meant anyway ;)
180s at 8:30
Can someone post if they announce that they're typing? Thanks!
Came in and said no typing as of now but possible 8 bars.
List in the 200s
Yep typing is happening.
I lied. Typing.
What numbers have gone in to be typed so far
They've typed everyone here, but they're typing again at 12 if you missed the first round.
Now I'm confused about that, they way they made it sound, it's as if the haven't finished typing, they're just picking off where they left off, the last group they typed was group 5, but I'm sure much of us are not sure what group were were in when typing since out of nowhere they just said, "ok well just type everyone left" which was that big group in which we pretty much were herded in. In not sure if that was one big group or many little groups...I don't even know what today is, is already turning into craziness. Too many calls packed into 2 days and half of them open...i
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 :-)
Argh I didn't notice that either! Boooo.
The alternate list is in the 90s already. Unsure if they're going to see everyone on the list, but it seems very few people knew that it was by appointment
Are you sure that is for South Pacific? I saw many lists but not ivoryton
Would someone mind confirming whether or not the alternate list for this call is in the 90s already?
List is at 144
Where's the list? Didn't see it outside the room
I'm stuck at work and want to know if they're closing the list? Or at this point how probable it looks to get seen on the wait list.
are they calling people from the alternate list? Is it looking hopeful? Thanks~
Bump for info on the alternate list!
All of the ladies have gone in for typing.
Are they closing the list after this typing or will they still type new people once they get there?
Oh poo sorry that was the wrong thread.
They're not typing!
Are they accepting any more people on the alternate list?? Slash is it moving at all? Thanks!
Women's Non-Eq list is outside. 5 names right now
Men's Non-Eq list is upstairs. 2 names on there
Alternate list is up to 130
Are they seeing any girls this morning?
Any male non-eqs seen yet?
Non equ males are being seen, and I as a non equ female am able to go in with the males too instead of waiting til 2:00.
...there is no alternate list !
Get down here!!!
Bump for who is ITR please!
Men's call will close at noon. Men who are not here by then may sing this afternoon after all the ladies present have been seen.
Merri Sugarman, and two other gentlemen who I don't know. One is the musical supervisor, Michael something.
Merri Sugarman, CD (Tara Rubin)
Ron Melrose, Music Supervisor
Richard Hester, Prod. Supervisor
Rick Hip-Flores, Accompanist

Just realized this was tomorrow.... Whoops.
Anyone else going in for the "BUTLER" appointments today?
