• North Shore MT Day 1 @ Pearl Studios 01/21/2013  1:11am

    First of all, PLEASE non-eq! NO LISTS tomorrow.....get up and get your toosh in line. Because I am - and I hope we all know that we have established that we will throw away the list!!!!!!

    2nd-I'm just starting this now because I'm going to sign up and leave! Updates after it starts at 9:30 please? How fast are they moving? Any non-eq getting seen...etc etc!

    Thanks everyone

    1- noneqs can make lists if the want to. There's no union helping them with rules, so one person saying 'no lists anymore' isn't going to matter. I'm not talking about the ppl who sign up 10 'friends' but about how cold it is this early in the morning til about June. Ppl are bound to leave the line to go sit in a Starbucks to gather themselves, or go get ready for a while in the Pearl dressing rms. Because of all this & bc noneqs have no rules & no protection/help, an orderly and appropriate list has to be kept. It's the only thing to keep sanity. (Again this is in no way supporting the mass sign-ups).
    2- re:North Shore. Why are noneqs even wasting their time going to these? They are having dpecial noneq auditions LATER and continue to have some calls as each show gets close (every year). Trying to get seen once is fine, but there is really no need for a mass of noneq congregating in freezing weather right now. North Shore loves hiring noneq so trust me, you'll get a real audition later.
    If you are a proactiv actor, you would go to the theatre's website that you're auditioning for to find out everything beforehand.

    14 people in line, 6:58am. Good luck everyone!

    Yzarif 01/21/2013  6:57am

    There is no unofficial list being made, so just join the end of the line when you get here. We can sign the lists we belong to when we get up to the table. Good luck to all :)

    womanship 01/21/2013  7:18am

    Keep the updates coming! Thanks!

    LadyLuck 01/21/2013  7:37am

    45 in line

    Yzarif 01/21/2013  7:40am

    The line is beginning to wrap through the room, and will probably have to snake out the door in a bit. Just ask where the end is! People have been very organized and helpful so far.

    womanship 01/21/2013  7:50am

    When they start the sign up, will someone post how its looking for EMCs? Thanks.

    caitmtlvr 01/21/2013  8:32am

    Emc's sign up with equity. Not sure about non eqs yet so please keep updated on whether they will be seeing any!

    jpaulus85 01/21/2013  8:52am

    jpaulus85 01/21/2013  8:54am

    BFAinServing 01/21/2013  8:56am

    Definitely equity appointments left in the afternoon. EMC list up to 35. Non-Eq list up to 21. (9:05am)

    melloyello 01/21/2013  9:03am

    Who's casting/ITR?

    bwaylvsong 01/21/2013  9:38am

    Good morning! Have they announced when they expect to start squeezing in the EMCs? Thanks!

    cookie 01/21/2013  9:49am

    They've started calling a few EMC

    LadyLuck 01/21/2013  10:03am

    Four EMC have been seen so far, a small equity alternate list has been started, and the creative team has said they want to see as many EMC and non-eqs as possible. In the room is Arianna Knapp (artistic director), Beth Vasta (associate producer), Bill Hanney (producer), and Chris McGovern (accompanist). The "brief song" thing has been changed to one 32 bar cut, or two contrasting 16. Hope that helps! Good luck!

    QUESTION: Does anybody know WHERE the NSMT audition will be on Thurs the 24th? AEA site says Pearl 519. Back Stage says AEA. AEA site is often wrong. Any news would be appreciated.

    tapwizard 01/21/2013  10:31am

    Tom- YIKES they are right. Backstage and AEA have the 24th/25th reversed as to location.

    Could you work your magic and let us know the correct locations please? Thank you so much!

    LFC 01/21/2013  10:34am

    Up to number 7 on the EMC and all alternates have been seen.

    womanship 01/21/2013  10:39am

    Called up to 13 on EMC

    LadyLuck 01/21/2013  11:30am

    Thanks mixitup! Someone who is there want to double-check with the monitor? We could all call AEA but figure just one person checking would be nice to not make them crazy.

    LFC 01/21/2013  11:45am

    1. The producers CANNOT limit your audition to 32 bars at an EPA. They can REQUEST a brief song, and they CAN cut you off after one minute. Let the monitors know this.
    COST rules: (11) At an audition, each Equity performer shall have no less than two minutes to present
    prepared material or, should the Producer so choose, read from material provided by the
    Producer and made available in the waiting room at the audition.

    2. AEA is closed today. Tuesday EPAs ARE at the Equity offices.

    Past Tense 01/21/2013  12:19pm

    EMC over 26 check back at 2.

    LadyLuck 01/21/2013  12:19pm

    Just spoke to the monitors they said non eq would not be seen until agter lunch and to come bak at 2

    sum1uknow 01/21/2013  12:19pm

    The above info that was posted from the website is correct.

    I also just called Pearl and confirmed that they do indeed have NSMT booked into a room at Pearl 519 on the 25th.

    Cheers.

    AuditionUpdate 01/21/2013  12:32pm

    Post lunch updates? What emc up to?

    janky 01/21/2013  2:16pm

    Emc has 25 left to go. Then hopefully they'll get to the noneqs

    Ahartwalker 01/21/2013  2:46pm

    Up to 29 on EMC

    LadyLuck 01/21/2013  3:01pm

    Is it all adults auditioning? Any kids or young teens?

    josiemay 01/21/2013  3:06pm

    Info in the breakdown: "Von Trapp Children will be cast locally"

    Past Tense 01/21/2013  3:35pm

    I hate to be the bearer of non-equity bad news. But we will not be seen today. Stay strong team, keep calm, and Kick your faces.

    DanZimb88 01/21/2013  3:35pm

    North shore will have a separate non-eq day. :)

    Thtrchik 01/21/2013  10:08pm

    Shoot, I had originally written down Monday - Thursday. Did they change the dates and get rid of Wednesday? That's the day I was going to go
