How early before sign up do people need to get there usually?
Good morning! How's it looking so far?
How's it going over there?
20 ish here now, no list yet (since Disney Cruises don't honor unofficial lists), but we're sitting in order of arrival.
Thank you somuch for the update :^)
Really open - come on down people!
Sorry to butt in on the ladies but any guys there yet for 2:30?
There are a few of us. We're just chillin
There's literally 6 guys. No sign up sheet out until 1:30 though
Could someone say who is in the room?
Jenn Mahoney is in the open call room and Ray is in the agent appt room.
Has anyone been to a Chicago EPA? Do they generally see non-eq? I know high profile shows don't see non-eq sometimes.
Also, I've professionally played every age between 16 and 40 because my face either looks really mature or really young depending on the makeup. I'm not sure if I should even go to the call because the first impression people have of me is that I am really young (even though I'm not) and the casting has the age range 30-40
Anybody heard anything since the 23rd Nov?
Hey EPAs were today. Let us know if you hear anything about appointments!
Have an appointment on 12/9
For what role?
But did you get it from the EPA's ?
Went to the workshop audition epa over the summer. Didn't go this most recent time around. Got the appointment via email a few days ago for a minor supporting female role. No sides. Just asked to sing from my book.
OK wonderful so there still a chance that the callbacks from the EPA's haven't come out yet .
Has a line been started yet?
Nonunion list past 30. Lol, everyone came thinking it would be deserted....
Appointments are filled to 11:20, the quasi holding room is very full and extending into the stairwell.
Any update on EMC list?
Non-eq list up to 36 at 10:05. Wtf?! Calls that are out of the way AND the day before a holiday are supposed to be empty lol.
31 on the EMC list at 10:35 and they haven't started taking EMCs in...
Woof. Never a good sign when there are no EMCs seen in first hour or so...
How's the AEA alternate list coming along? Any appointments still left?
How is the line/appts moving? Lots of alternates going in? Any EMCs seen? Party in the tiny holding room?
All Eq Alts seen. First two EMCs just seen. About to break for lunch at 1:30
Is the casting director just hearing monologues or is he giving out sides to do as well? Any mention about callbacks?
Just caught word that we're through ten EMCs of 38.
Is it still going on till 6 ? It's 430 now
They're at 34 of 38 on the EMC.
EMC list completed and non-eqs started!
We're all non eqs seen?
They called through 40ish
Can we keep posted with callbacks?
Does anyone know who was in the room yesterday?
I'm nonunion and never auditioned at Atlantic before. Do the same rules appy where I can show up early to put my name on a list? Or do they just open their doors at 10am? Thanks for any info!
Any idea what the score is like?
When are auditions?
My first time here. No one is upstairs, so they are not letting us in until someone from Atlantic answers the phone. I'm waiting in the Starbucks next door for a while. Convenient
Are there many people waiting to get in for the audition yet?
List started. Only 4 so far
Monitoring is taking everyone upstairs. Eq and noneq. She's transferring noneq list to official sign up. 5th floor
Are there many equity people signed up yet?
Pretty reasonable. Not a ton of folks here.
Are they giving the option of doing a monologue, or do they just want to hear a song?
This is a musical audition. Kaitlin Shaw in the room with Josh Kight at the piano.
Thank you so much! Super helpful.
Anyone else in the room?
How long is the EMC list?
Im EMC and I walked in and got seen immediately.
Non eq its a good thing to swing by here if you are right for the show and Equity there are auditions slots available
This was all as of 11:52
Did they specify what kind of a genre is expected? The breakdown says nothing about the style of music.
Any idea what sort of genre of music they are looking for?
Happy Thanksgiving! :)
No specification of music type just the " 16 bars that you sound pretty singing "
Risking sounding completely uniformed, how do you know if you're right for this if they don't specify any music type. It says all ethnicities, but it seems like they want "ethnically ambiguous"/Egyptian-looking people yeah?
Ok, guys, basic research-
The show is based on an Israeli film- characters who are not Egyptian are either Israeli (aka of Jewish or Middle Eastern descent), or they are practicing colorblind casting. I think that the vague breakdown implies the latter.
The score is by David Yazbek, whose prior scores have all been in the contemporary MT style.
Also, it's wide open- go get seen! 😃
Anyone know if they are planning on staying till 6? Please post if they close. Can't get there till a little later
Just caught word that we're through ten EMCs of a total of 38.
Ignore above. Wrong post.
Anyone been over there?
Hey has anyone heard back about the singing callbacks for BLOCS musical theater audition? I can't remember if they said wait until after Thanksgiving
Has anyone ever tried to get an appointment for this? What's the best time to arrive? Is it usually a slim chance of getting an appointment?
This one is dead! It's totally open (I signed up 15 minutes ago and there were two people in line.)
17 on list as of 7:20.
Yeah they have a new system since they have the new waiting room on the 4th floor. You are allowed to sign up any time before 8 AM and a monitor will cal the list at 8:25, which is amazing because this type of call has been crazy in the past. If you arrive after 8, you'll get in line behind those already signed up.
The monitor also said there will be a similar procedure now for EPAs and you will be able to sign up on a list before 8 AM to hold your place in line.
after 8 AM, how much more time do you have to sign up for the agent access auditions? I have a hard time getting into the city that early not being in the 5 boroughs
Sign ups begin at 8:30a and continue until 9:30a or the list of 54 appts and 50 alternates is filled - whichever comes first.
Non eq list started, just 2 so far. Any info from yesterday's call?
Could someone post who is ITR from the dance call. Thanks!
Good morning, brothers and sisters! ~ * ~
I'm wondering if anyone can update how many names are signed up on the NON-Equity list?
Thanks a million!
Can someone post if the call is still open?
