    Also non-eqs? How many are there and will they see them today at all?

    Sk8ter1916 02/21/2017  9:15am

    Can anyone confirm JKR rumors?

    ClarissaBelleRose 02/21/2017  9:21am

    ClarissaBell they are trolling because you're all going nuts. No one knows if non eq will get seen, and of course JKR will not be coming to New York for this EPA...

    Baby_Groot 02/21/2017  9:31am

    Baby_Groot haha okay I thought so

    ClarissaBelleRose 02/21/2017  9:35am

    Yea, I'll second on asking if they're asking for a British accent and if they're taking AEA drop-offs.

    crossover 02/21/2017  1:17pm

    any response for them requesting RP accents?

    MusicIsMyThing 02/21/2017  1:19pm

    Do we have an EMC count/ potential idea about non eq?

    02/21/2017  1:37pm

    Yes, they are asking for British accents.

    They have seen four EMCs.

    They have about 13 equity members on the alternate list.

    Kurteth 02/21/2017  2:45pm

    For only kids being able to drop off headshots, do you mean for the 11 year olds or 14/15 year old roles?

    JennyandtheJets 02/21/2017  3:03pm

    What's good with non-eqs?

    ClarissaBelleRose 02/21/2017  3:05pm

    Up to 8 EMC seen. Again, non-equ has been released for the day. They are not accepting drop offs. Only letting little kids do drop offs.

    Fashion4life 02/21/2017  3:17pm

    No more drop offs today at all guys :(

    Allygonz 02/21/2017  3:47pm

    Does anyone know how many EMC were seen by the end of the day? Also, I'm contemplating coming from out of the city, can anyone EMC who was seen post what time they showed up this morning? Thanks all!

    SpicedWafer 02/21/2017  6:32pm

    21 EMC were seen. Even arriving at 7:30 was not nearly early enough to be seen as an EMC. The last one seen probably arrived around 6:30 or 7:00.

  • Cursed Child non-eq chances 02/21/2017  4:09pm

    I know this is a shot in the dark and totally redundant, but for anyone with experience in 3 day calls, what are the odds of non-eq being seen on the last day if they haven't been seen the other two days? I know no one knows for sure on these things but just from past experiences and gut feelings, what do you guys think?


    Pleeeeease stop posting girl omg

    asprgs456 02/21/2017  4:10pm


    GigiS 02/21/2017  4:11pm

    asprgs456 I mean in my defense other people want to know too and I did say it was a shot in the dark... just wondering if anyone has any idea. Can't hurt.

    ClarissaBelleRose 02/21/2017  4:15pm

    Just read the threads of the past two days to see what people said about how many non eq were seen IF they were indeed seen. It doesn't take much to search for...

    Showbizdreamer 02/21/2017  4:18pm

    ClarissaBelleRose no harm in posting, lots of us are wondering too, thanks!

    Sk8ter1916 02/21/2017  4:20pm

    Honestly I was wondering the same thing as ClarissaBelleRose. It's not a dumb question and no one has asked it yet. that being said- does anyone actually know the odds of being seen as nonunion tomorrow? I've never seen all nonunion turned away 3 days in a row

    Rob999 02/21/2017  4:24pm

    Ok listen, hope this is helpful...this audition season has already been over saturated WITHIN the union because of new online sign ups, almost every large EPA has turned down non eqs completely and even AEA members on alternate lists. I highly doubt they will see any for the third day of a hugely anticipated new broadway production. I'd save your time and be on the look out for an ACTUAL open call (not a union audition) for this...which I think isn't totally out of the question because of the popularity.

    MT1516 02/21/2017  4:39pm

    If you're looking for someone to give you permission to sleep in because it's ABSOLUTELY not gonna happen, you're never gonna get that. Just wake up and put your name on the list and go about your day with a weather eye on audition update. People are GONNA keep us updated, but you WILL NOT get the validation you're looking for that's gonna tip the scales one way or the other.

    02/21/2017  5:30pm

    Thank you to the people that gave me an answer. I was asking because I don't live in the city and its not a question of sleeping in- if I wanted to go tomorrow I'd have to leave pretty soon tonight and sit outside the building on the sidewalk all night. Thanks for the insight. If anyone else has any idea about tomorrow definitely throw it out there

    ClarissaBelleRose 02/21/2017  6:29pm

    the main reason people are annoyed is NOT because you keep asking silly questions no one has answers to, but because you keep starting entirely new threads making it so difficult to navigate the site. Most of us are NYC-based actors looking at tons of gigs, and it's really frustrating to find tons of different threads on the same audition, when we're looking for threads about the tons of others going on. Chill, girl.

    skippin 02/21/2017  6:38pm

    no one is ever gonna know what's going to happen, so you have to just make up your mind - do you want to spend the night on the street in the hope you become a broadway star, discovered over thousands of professional actors for a highly anticipated production of a Harry Potter play?

    No one's going to be able to tell you if that's worth it.

    skippin 02/21/2017  6:40pm

    I'm sorry, I joined this site a few days ago and I didn't realize you're not supposed to make a new post if you have a question. I didn't realize it was bothering anyone and I thought it was a question worth asking since it seemed like other people were wondering too. Sorry for inconveniencing anyone's day, good luck with all your other auditions!

    ClarissaBelleRose 02/21/2017  6:50pm

    Yikes, no need to be mean y'all. That's a totally valid question. To be honest, I'm probably not going to show up at 5am AGAIN tomorrow because I think the odds are insanely slim. Having not seen any non-eqs the past two days, I have a very bad feeling about tomorrow. Plus, I'm also from outside the city so it's also extra beneficial knowing what the deal is. I'd say, and this is just one person, non-eq will most likely not be seen tomorrow.

    hrwokay 02/21/2017  6:53pm

    hrwokay, thanks :) I'm on the same page as you as far as tomorrow. Sorry again to anyone my post bothered

    ClarissaBelleRose 02/21/2017  7:14pm

    Guys- as someone who has been new to this site once, as have all of you, its completely understandable that the "one post per show" thing isn't obvious to a newcomer; especially in the past few days with all of this Harry Potter craziness. Comments and questions on long posts are easily lost, and it is definitely true that a new post will get more answers. This post asked a valid question which many people, including me, were also wondering. I won't go as far as accusing anyone of attacking, but belittling a newcomer is not something we in the arts stand for. This is a hard industry and this website forms a nice sense of community among us artists. We hear enough criticism from the outside, so lets keep it welcoming at least on here, between actors. Clarissa, on behalf of the actors here, welcome to this forum. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask :)

    Is the call tomorrow for men only? Confused by the posting on Backstage.


    Based off of their website, I'm pretty sure it's just men.

    LegallyBrooonet 02/19/2017  6:58pm

    From their website...

    " The NYC schedule is as follows:

    Monday, February 20: 9:00 - 5:00 - Open Call for NON-EQUITY MALE Singers and Non-singing Actors. Casting both plays and musicals from this call. Pianist provided.

    Wednesday, February 22: 9:00 - 5:00 - Open call for NON-EQUITY WOMEN - Non-singing roles. No pianist provided this day.

    Thursday, February 23 - Open dance call for NON-EQUITY DANCER/SINGERS. A brief dancing "type" call will be held at 9:00 for men and 1:30 for women. Once we have typed everyone, we will conduct one main dance combination (two if time permits). If kept, be prepared to sing following the dance audition. "

    BroadwayKiwi 02/19/2017  7:25pm

    Well damn I guess I'm not going to this tomorrow then. Well that sucks.

    JoycelynB 02/19/2017  7:33pm

    What time are people planning on getting there tomorrow? If it starts at 9, are people thinking 7/7:30? Praise for a men's only call (sorry women and those who identify as such, I need one open call that's chill this week, I'm getting over being sick).

    BroadwayKiwi 02/19/2017  9:24pm

    Do you think they're going to close the list in the morninng? Or do you think they'll see people throughout the day? It ends at 5 and it's only guys so I'm hoping it's not too crazy

    iwokeuplikedis 02/19/2017  9:49pm

    CindySparkle 02/20/2017  11:40am

    They have called through 135 for headshots and then they're taking lunch @ 1ish. They'll probably only do lunch for a half hour.

    "They have called through 135 for headshots and then they're taking lunch @ 1ish. They'll probably only do lunch for a half hour."

    BoyWhoLived, is this for Cortland? Or did you mean it for Prather?

    BroadwayKiwi 02/20/2017  12:01pm

    They've called through #60. They're taking a lunch at 1 though not sure if it's a half hour or full for lunch.

    singermover 02/20/2017  12:11pm

    Monitor said lunch is not at a planned time and will be very brief and/or personnel may leave one at a time to keep the call rolling.
