Updates? Are they signing in Eqs yet?
Also non-eqs? How many are there and will they see them today at all?
Can anyone confirm JKR rumors?
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 haha okay I thought so
I just signed in at room 404, #213 on non-eq list at 10:10am. As of now non-eqs can still sign in
How many alternates are on the list??
Any news for non-eq people? Will they be seen today? Thanks guys! :)
bump on non eq situation
The monitor seemed to think there is a pretty good chance non-eq will be seen.
Can anyone confirm where we're at on the alternate list or EMC list?!
Anyone there today- what's the deal with sides? Just pick from the table and read whoever you want in the room?
Non-eq dismissed for lunch, come back after. EMC asked to stick around.
Bump on EMC/alternate updates
Are they honoring the unofficial non eq list?
Any updates on EMC??
They have seen three EMCs so far :)
Keep us updated on EMC and any whispers you may hear about non-eq.
SOOOOO appreciated witches and wizards. Keep being awesome.
Yo are they asking for British accent?
Not THAT is the t.
EMC updates anyone?? :)
They've seen 4 emc so far.
EMC released until 2:20
Did some people really wear wizard robes during the auditions?
Are they taking drop offs from Aea members?
Yea, I'll second on asking if they're asking for a British accent and if they're taking AEA drop-offs.
any response for them requesting RP accents?
I'm curious about accent requests as well! Also any update on non-eq?
Anyone have a lunchtime update on alternate list? How many called/how many to go? Thanks!
55 out of 64 on alternate list A. Not sure if there is a list B. Lunch until 230
Do we have an EMC count/ potential idea about non eq?
Yes, they are asking for British accents.
They have seen four EMCs.
They have about 13 equity members on the alternate list.
Any updates on non eq?
Any idea how many EMC there are on the list?
Bump -- any updates on non eq?
bump on headshot drops?
Have the started seeing people again free lunch? What number of EMC are the at and how many are there in total?
No non-equity today. No drop offs other than kids.
Bump, what's the alternate and emc stuff
For only kids being able to drop off headshots, do you mean for the 11 year olds or 14/15 year old roles?
What's good with non-eqs?
They mean real children.
Bump on alt/emc number
Just called #8 EMC
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.
No more drop offs today at all guys :(
Can we please stop with the JKR trolling posts... People are already worked up over this call anyways.... Either she is there or is not... Pick. Furthermore if you don't meer the height requirements I'd say stop making more chaotic and don't clog Pearl more than it is
Bump for emc/alt numbers
BUMP on EMC/alternates
I know the people who did the JK trolls. They are JKing. Of course she is not there nor will she ever be there.
They're up to 20 or 21 on EMC.
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!
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.
Has anyone been to a Penn Shakes open call before and know how it works? Will an unofficial list be honored? I thought someone said it wasn't last year. Is that correct?
Thanks in advance for any info! :)
The post said that sign up would begin at 11:30. So let's show up then!
Bump with info on if they usually accept unofficial lists
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 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.
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...
ClarissaBelleRose no harm in posting, lots of us are wondering too, thanks!
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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!
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, thanks :) I'm on the same page as you as far as tomorrow. Sorry again to anyone my post bothered
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 :)
Rob999 WOW YES AMEN ^^^^^^^
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.
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. "
Well damn I guess I'm not going to this tomorrow then. Well that sucks.
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).
I'm rolling in at 10am or maybe even after.
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
Will an unofficial list be honored?
Hey checking in on how its lookin
About 25 of us in the holding room. We didn't bother making a list because...well there's 25 of us. But yeah bro, cmon down and sing a ditty.
anybody have an idea of when they are closing the list?
bump on when the list closes. down the street at pearl right now
Did someone get who the five folks in the room are? :)
Bump for number called through. Happy grind everyone
#35 here and I just got done about 5 mins ago.
Thank you for these updates! Please keep them coming!! Anyone know when their lunch break is?
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?
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.
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.
Just called through the 70s a lot of girls missed their numbers :(
Did anyone get a callback ITR?
If you missed your number can you still come in and be placed in a group? I'm #100 but was told to come back at 315...
Anyone know how many are currently on the list? Or is it closed?
Bump what number are they on
Bump on numbers called!
As of about 10 minutes ago, they'd called through #80
Is this still open?
last I checked, they weren't planning on closing the list. the list is up to the 160s or so
Any notion as to whether they'll squeeze you in if you miss your number because they are going faster than they anticipated?
List is still open.
Headshots collected up to #103.
Monitor will slip you back in if you aren't here when he calls you.
Yes! If you show up after your slot has been called they put you at front of the next group.
They told EMCs to come back after lunch. Still waiting on details. Other everyone on noneq list still is not being seen. I needed to clarify or else people will be pouring in.
The accompanist for this audition was really really bad. Or was it just me?
omg yes, the accompanist added a 30 second intro NOT on the page when I asked for a bell tone. and a very weird button (even though one was written...)
Anyone know if they will be honouring the unofficial list tomorrow? Or if they have in the past? THANK YOU!
Has anyone heard back?
Does anyone know if they will they be accepting an unofficial list tomorrow? The ad says sign in is at 12:30pm.
Anyone known if any non eq was seen today?
Thru 16 on the EMC list. No non eqs were seen :(
Anyone know if they typically see non eq at this EPA? Thanks!
Anyone know if they are taking walk-ins?
Check back at 2pm they said
They're typing people without appointments after lunch
What time is lunch?
Bump on lunch!
I think it ends at 1 but don't quote me
I went by and gave my headshot and resume 45 minutes ago. They said it was too packed today to see anymore people but they'd let me know if they wanted to see me tomorrow.
We're callbacks given in the room to come back to read today or just to dance tomorrow?
Are they auditioning again tomorrow?
Some people got asked to come back tomorrow to dance, but I didn't know if anyone was reading today or tomorrow OOOOR if tomorrow is just a dance day. #stress
I have an initial appointment tomorrow!
Has anyone heard back about appointments??? RLY wanna be seen
The first bump is the deepest
I heard they're planning to type by resume and if you haven't worked with someone on the team you're OUT! can anyone confirm?
Thanks Fally!! Did you know if they are honoring the unofficial list at this call? I wanna know if I should just set my alarm or if I need to camp out the night before!
What time will the list close?
I got an appointment today from my manager #soyblessed
Got an appointment for the boyfriend!
I got a callback for girl on the couch!
According to casting on FB they are accepting rolling video submissions!!!!!3
I got an offer last week...I. pretty sure this is cast.
