  • Chicago- female dancers- Fulton 10/16/2018  10:17am

    Does anyone know how long the list is? Any word on seeing non-union?


    How was the combo? Did any female singers got kept to dance? Any info??

    So when they lined us up, Bob said that they weren’t really calling people back to dance after singing but that if you wanted to dance you should stay and attend the dance call. However, I do know they have some invited dance calls this week.

    Any info from dancers today as to what the combo was like?

  • CHICAGO for FULTON Theatre 10/08/2018  5:41pm

    Hello again friends and colleagues,
    The ECC is just a few hours over a week away 10/16, but I know this is when some of you need to be planning your week ahead.
    The roles we are looking to hire from this NY call are....
    Velma, Matron Mama Morton, Mary Sunshine and Male & Female amazing ensemble dancers.
    So in Chicago-land, if you are only interested in Roxie, Billy, or Amos, you may wanna sit this one out.
    Also, Fulton has been awesome enough to schedule a non-eq call for male and female dancers at 10:00am on 10/17. That being said, Marc Robin always begins with a quick cut combination for all his dance calls, so although I'm sure we'll have time to see some non-equity at the ECC.....I'd adore it if you attend the non-eq specific call on Wednesday morning, if at all possible. With the building frustration of non-eq performers not having time to be seen at union calls, I've encouraged them to go this route, so I'm hoping you'll embrace it, so the keep on doing it :)
    Thanks again, as always,

    Bob Cline Casting


    Bob Cline Casting 10/09/2018  9:35pm

    You are a beautiful man!

    Yo! 10/10/2018  12:09am

    Thanks Bob for keeping it 💯!!!!

    People like you make this industry a collaboration rather than feeling like us versus them.

    ganymede 10/10/2018  8:39am

    Hi Bob,

    Thanks so much for the info and I’m so sorry to bother you, but I can’t seem to find any info on the open call? I only see ECC.

    Ps- you are so helpful to us!!

    Hollaback999 10/12/2018  2:36pm

    the non equity open call should be on both playbill and backstage.....10:00am wednesday, pearl, male and female dancers.

    Bob Cline Casting 10/12/2018  9:23pm

    Bob, you really are the best. This is extremely helpful information! Thank you so much!

    elphie 10/13/2018  11:00pm

    That Weds open call is a dance call, right? Would love to come out for Mama Morton - but is she a dance track? That ECC will be swarmed. Not much hope for us non-union performers to be seen.

    altosrule 10/14/2018  12:25pm

    I am more of an Amos type but regardless I wanted to give you props, Bob! You are amazing! Thank you for all you do!

    I am wondering if all of the appointments have gone out for this already?

    Pollywannacallback 10/15/2018  8:23am

    Will an unofficial list be accepted or is it a line up and wait?

  • notsuttonfoster

    Anyone trying for this? Is there a line or list started?

    ssing99 10/16/2018  5:17am

    List not started.
    Line at 5, at least 2 EMC and 1 non eq.
    3 guys, 2 gals.

    notsuttonfoster 10/16/2018  5:36am

    Why no list tho

    Etinarcadiaego 10/16/2018  5:51am

    They’ll put out the official noneq list when the building opens at 6

    Jessika 10/16/2018  5:52am

    Noneq list inside with 14 names.

    notsuttonfoster 10/16/2018  6:17am

    What’s it looking like? Do you think non eq will be seen today?

    lmk123 10/16/2018  6:43am


    bruiserwhereiselle 10/16/2018  7:01am

    Non eq up to 28

    Sarah18 10/16/2018  7:07am

    How long is the equity emc line?

    How long is the equity emc line?

    hapey123 10/16/2018  8:05am


    bruiserwhereiselle 10/16/2018  8:36am

    EMC list at 32
    Non-Eq list at 46

    Kinky&Wicked 10/16/2018  8:49am

    When available, can someone post around how many equity alternates there are, and once they start to see EMC? Thanks very much

    BackgroundTree 10/16/2018  9:05am

    Only 7 equity in line at 8am. Lots of appointments still available as of 9am

    Professorbway 10/16/2018  9:05am

    Does anyone think they're gonna read the noneq list in the next few hours?

    lmk123 10/16/2018  9:06am

    There are no alternates signed up yet, so it's very possible they will get to non-equity this am

    Professorbway 10/16/2018  9:09am

    Much appreciated

    BackgroundTree 10/16/2018  9:18am

    EMC update?

    BariTurnt 10/16/2018  9:36am

    How many EMC?

    princessbala 10/16/2018  9:36am

    Noneq will not be seen until after 11am. (If they get seen. Still a chance for noneq to not be seen but they dismissed noneq until 11am)

    bruiserwhereiselle 10/16/2018  9:50am

    Did they read through the non eq list though?

    lmk123 10/16/2018  9:53am

    Have they called EMCs?

    BariTurnt 10/16/2018  9:53am

    They have begun to call through EMC. I believe they’re up to 18. Non-Eq were asked to stay on the 4th floor until someone comes down to let them know if they will be seen.

    I assume non-eq will be seen. No alternates and they’re flying through EMC.

    Kinky&Wicked 10/16/2018  10:02am

    Yo this may be a stupid question, but how does it work when they bring in non eq if they see them? Do they take them up in groups or just like release the gates and all non eq is allowed to go up

    sarahsanderson 10/16/2018  10:20am

    Bump on if they let non eq up

    princessbala 10/16/2018  10:29am


    raerae4615 10/16/2018  10:32am

    If you’re signed up on EMC and not here... GET HERE. They’re not just flying, they’re soaring, skipping people left and right bc no one is here!!

    Aphetoros 10/16/2018  10:37am

    What number are they at?

    princessbala 10/16/2018  10:45am

    pmusic 10/16/2018  11:06am


    drty. jers. 10/16/2018  11:07am

    As a non eq would it be worth rushing over there?

    Cap 10/16/2018  11:15am

    Is the list close?/when does it close?

    Mynameisfillintheblank 10/16/2018  11:25am


    sarahsanderson 10/16/2018  11:29am

    Looks like they’ve called through 27 on the non eq list. A lot of people were skipped. List is now up to about 60.

    princessbala 10/16/2018  11:31am

    Based on today, would it be worth it for a non-eq male who lives an hour and a half away attend the call on Thursday?

    thesingingdisneyfanatic 10/16/2018  11:40am

    If someone could post if they end up closing the non-eq list at some point that would be great!

    Lee1414 10/16/2018  11:44am

    We're up to #4 of non eq up here on the 16th floor

    Any idea when/if the list is closing?

    Does anyone know what number non eq they’ve gotten to

    sarahsanderson 10/16/2018  2:07pm

    They have seen 3 non eq but more people keep coming signing up for slots and alternates

    BackgroundTree 10/16/2018  2:15pm


    sarahsanderson 10/16/2018  2:20pm

    Hey team, heads up — the accompanist reeeeally fought me on the tempo. Not sure if anyone else had that experience today, but just wanted to throw that out there.

    sosayethi 10/16/2018  2:22pm

    ITR Rebecca Scholl - Casting
    Will Buck - Piano (he did a great job with my song that had varying tempo). IMHO I think the turnout was low from AEA as there were other big ECC's and EPA's today that were looking for the younger (20's) types. Plus, the audition was at AEA which makes bouncing from call to call challenging. Tomorrow's call is at Pearl, so this might change. BUT - if you were Non-Eq in your 20's (and we all were at one point), I'm happy for you as they was many non-union seen. Hope this helps

    Professorbway 10/16/2018  2:37pm

    Non-Eq just called up to 49 out of 96!

    notsuttonfoster 10/16/2018  2:45pm

    what number are they up to on non eq now? THANK YOU guys for the updates!!!!

    theatre559 10/16/2018  3:13pm

    Still haven’t called the next group up from the waiting room, so under 49 non-eq.

    notsuttonfoster 10/16/2018  3:36pm

    They have called up to 69 to go to the 16th floor

    Please post updates about this EPA! Are they seeing non-eqs? Is it crowded??


    I seriously doubt you'll find anyone from the Bay Area posting here as this is an NY based site...LA calls rarely make it on here as it is, so Bay Area will be even less so, it's a much smaller community out there.

    Showbizdreamer 10/16/2018  8:48am

    also looking for info on this call regarding whether they are seeing non-eq. If anyone knows anything. Thanks!!!

    penguin439 10/16/2018  12:19pm

    No word on whether they’ll get to non-equity folks just yet. Monitor says late afternoon looks light so it’s possible. Over 50 names on the non-equity list that I know of. Likely there are more.

    Hi all,

    List was started on outside of building at 6:30 am. Someone accidentally restarted a new list inside instead of bringing the first list upstairs, so we transferred those over to the correct list.

    As of 8:43 there at 23 men.


    Amazing, thank you for doing that!

    Equity #35 through #70 is in the room. They ran ahead and the first group only took half an hour

    Have they confirmed that they are typing at 12? Or are they just going to try to see as many non-eq as they can after equity?
