• TRU Combined Auditions 03/19/2018  6:44pm

    Looking to see if anyone has attended this unified call before. I read past posts but all seem pretty dated. Is this worth it compared to others like Strawhats? As a dancer first would you recommend since they only do song and monologue? Not looking to pay $$$ if it won't pay off

    Total, absolute waste of time and I’m a singer-actor. What you will get: offers to do unpaid readings of new plays, invitations to free seminars where they try to sell you paid seminars, invitations to one free class where they try to sell you their longer class, invitations to meet coaches so they can convince you to pay them for coachings. What you won’t get: auditions, callbacks, or offers for paid work in any shape or form. And the people who run the thing are crazy disorganized and completely nutty. I know lots of people who did these auditions and it’s not quite a scam but a very expensive waste of time. One of my worst NYC experiences, and I’ve been here 10yrs

    To clarify: I did TRU last year. Oh, and if you decide to do it don’t give them your regular email because the spam keeps coming for months.

    I did this event last year and did not get any offers, except for unpaid play readings

    However, I WILL say that the staff was completely organized and very friendly. I thought they did a wonderful job of running the event! I felt very relaxed and easeful at this audition, unlike most. So I disagree with the previous comments about disorganization.
