    Wondering this as well... bumpy bump

    A full season EPA. Being held not at the equity building. On a Monday. It’s going to be busy as f*ck. This is my first year attending as union, but when I was non-equity I was never seen at a Portland Stage EPA. It’s either crazy busy or the CD decides not to see non-union. Most non union parts are given to locals (my roommate did a show with them the past 2 seasons and that was always the case). There are loads of other auditions tomorrow that, in my opinion, are a better bet for non-equity to be seen at and cast. I hope that helps you all! I know how shitty being non-equity can be sometimes!

    @nobodyknows- i see it listed as an Open Call on backstage for tomorrow. Not an EPA. Did that change? Im hoping that with it being listed as an Open Call, itll be a little bit less crowded?

    It is an EPA. It clearly states on backstage that it is an EPA within the casting. The first sentence of the notice literally says “Casting Equity actors for the Portland Stage Co. 2018-2019 Season.” It’s a mistake at the bottom that backstage classified it as an open call. It also states that EPA/equity rules are in effect and that an equity monitor will be there. This is in NO way an open call. It was also listed on Playbill (the notice has now expired) as an EPA and my agent told me last week there was an EPA notice sent to her office about it. It’s an equity call and they have never cast a non equity non-local that I’ve ever heard of. Be careful with backstage. They often misclassify notices and you need to read the whole casting to see if it’s actually an open call. This is NOT an open call

    What’s the EMC situation like? Are they seeing non union at all?

    There are still a couple appointments left at the end of the day, after 4:30. And it looks like they’ve seen a decent amount of alternates too.
