• It shoulda been you @ Ripley Grier 520 04/23/2017  11:34pm

    Hey everyone!
    Anyone going to the it shoulda been you open call tomorrow? It says it's 1-4 at Ripley and I'm just trying to figure out how early to get there and sign in....thanks!!


    Is this the one in Allenstown or something that pays $200 for a 2 month contract?

    No ones gonna be there friend. If they are they don't read breakdowns.

    BariToxic 04/24/2017  12:09am

    @toxicbari - the contract is less than a month worth of commited time and while it's a small stipend, some of us are still willing to a) read break downs b) perform for less and c) build our resumes so instead of taking time to make some one feel like shit about being willing to go to an audition you think you're too good for, mind your own business.

    @takemeorleaveme - I'll be auditioning there tomorrow but I don't think getting there before 12:45/1 is necessary. Have a good night!

    ^^ What tracker do you use? I was literally just researching this today.

    on topic: my submission hasn't been viewed yet, either.

    thebard 04/21/2017  2:41pm

    yeah lol is this even happening

    JudFry95 04/21/2017  2:48pm

    It must be, the open call that lasts only three hours is next week...

    Showbizdreamer 04/21/2017  2:57pm

    According to the Backstage post, it says to submit via Backstage and send an email if you can't make the NYC audition. This is super confusing because I want to submit for multiple shows. Did you guys all just send emails?

    ForeverYoung 04/21/2017  5:28pm

    I just got an email to sign up through signup genius for the open call on Tuesday.

    ItsTooColdForThis 04/21/2017  6:00pm

    The call said to email for an appointment during the "open call" for principals, so that's why I emailed. But this has been pretty confusing lol

    ScreltersAnonymous 04/21/2017  7:01pm

    Great, yet another theatre I was called back for in 2015-16 but can't get Appointment for in 2017.... when will it stop?

    ScrewTheEngineer 04/21/2017  8:16pm

    So wait, now there's no open call? Are you talking about Once or Ragtime?

    Icanseeyou 04/21/2017  8:19pm

    I also received an email to sign up for a time for the open dance call via signup genius.

    ForeverYoung 04/21/2017  8:35pm

    Has anyone gotten an appointment other than to dance?

    08jp 04/21/2017  9:32pm

    What the...ok, I'm ALL confused now...it literally says that they have those almost three days worth of apps...and I'd assume like any of us would, to submit in hopes to get an appt, during one of those days, and that Tuesday from 9-12 is the open call. How else can be interpreted?

    Showbizdreamer 04/21/2017  10:29pm

    It was a submission via email for supporting/ensemble for Grease, Ragtime, and A Christmas Story. They sent the link for the signup genius for the open call date to dance. The backstage post said to "pre-submit" to reserve your spot so maybe they are seeing others too?

    ItsTooColdForThis 04/21/2017  10:29pm

    Dance call & then callbacks to read and sing after.

    heyizabella 04/21/2017  10:57pm

    Oohhhhhh ok the open call is to dance. Good grief, where was that sign up found?? I don't even know why I ask, since I'm not dance...plus I'm targeting Once so this whole thing of me trying to figure out what the hell their auditions are all about next week seems to have been in vain.

    Showbizdreamer 04/22/2017  12:29am

    have they viewed anyone else's video yet because mine has still not been seen.

    JudFry95 04/22/2017  10:49am

    looks like they "reached out" to who they wanted to see... have fun at the dance call everyone!!!

    ScrewTheEngineer 04/22/2017  11:31am

    so... is there an actualy OPEN call, show up without being invited day for this?

    qwertybelty25 04/22/2017  8:09pm

    I emailed with my materials hoping to submit a video, as I am out of town though May. Got a response today asking me to sign up for an appointment to sing on Monday. So take that for what it's worth.

    ImMrsIglesias 04/22/2017  10:34pm

    @judfry95 have you been in for them in the past?

    ScrewTheEngineer 04/22/2017  11:36pm


    JudFry95 04/23/2017  10:48am

    Bump on if this is an actual open call. Will they be seeing those who show up in the morning?

    Bwayluver 04/23/2017  11:25am

    Bump for information. Super confused.

  • Legally Blonde @ 04/19/2017  2:01pm

    Hey dancers, could anyone share what time and where the Legally Blonde dancer call is for Big League Productions? I can't find it on their website.


    Popping in

    At this time there will not be a dance call scheduled - but a dance callback

    We plan to have more auditions in June.

    You can always email me questions

    Alison Franck 04/19/2017  2:35pm

    Hi Alison–where will you be posting the link tomorrow at 3 when signups go live? The Franck Casting Facebook page or the Backstage listing or elsewhere? Just want to know where to check!

    lululemming 04/19/2017  3:33pm

    I will be posting the signup Genius in the ad itself

    I can edit the ad... anytime I want.

    Hope that helps

    Alison Franck 04/19/2017  3:44pm

    It does immensely, thank you!

    lululemming 04/19/2017  3:45pm

    Alison thank you for always running great auditions. Do you know when you will start scheduling agent appointments and AA appointments?

    S&J 04/20/2017  12:19pm

    Bump! Any appointments yet?

    awopbamboo 04/20/2017  3:42pm

    yessss so hoping for an appointment because i was stuck on the subway and couldn't get to the link in enough time. that was booked up in like 20 mins... :(

    openspace14 04/20/2017  3:47pm

    Did any other men get an email directed towards women after signing up for the men's call? Really hoping I don't get removed, but also it said to disregard the email if you aren't a woman.

    OptionUp 04/20/2017  5:09pm

    The email was just directed to the women who signed up for the Men's call.

    a few slots have opened up for the men's call. I will keep updating here... if there are any changes since I received several hundred emails about both sites being too busy. That was because both sites were being used. I wish I had more time next week to see more actors. please understand that.

    Alison Franck 04/20/2017  5:19pm

    Bump again! Any appointments?

    awopbamboo 04/20/2017  10:05pm

    Okay. All of the appointments are out.

    This week was so last minute we could only get space for 2 and half days, so we wanted to see as many as we could at open calls and have time to dance some people and then have time to maybe call some back.

    BUT the creatives will be back in June. SO if anyone has missed these calls, I will be viewing video submissions and seeing people for other projects (A CHORUS LINE is coming up in May) and also (not posted yet) A CHRISTMAS STORY. and at some point, the GRINCH, I will be at all of those auditions as well...

    We won't be done casting this show after this week.

    Alison Franck 04/21/2017  3:23pm

    Alison, it is very kind of you to update us directly and to offer information/explanations when you don't have to. Many thanks, it is appreciated!

    loverlee 04/21/2017  4:30pm

    To clarify, since um newer to the MT world here in NYC, since the slots are all booked for tomorrow does this mean those of us who missed registering won't be seen? I know it says open call but the thread has me thinking it's filled up already? -pining for paulette

  • PRiMA Theatre- general inquiry @ other 04/21/2017  2:32pm

    Has anybody ever worked with this theater before? I tried to find it under Gig & Tell, but they're not listed. Can you tell my about your experience?


    I've submitted a couple times previously, but I think they tend to hire as local as possible since they're a really small company.

    Showbizdreamer 04/21/2017  2:59pm

    Yeah it looked as though they were gonna offer me a contract, but they wanted me to find my own housing AND couldn't pay me.

    TJ5616 04/22/2017  10:15am

    Oh hell naw....they wanted to cast you but YOU had to find your own housing and they "can't pay you"?? What the fresh hell is that?? I actually have family in York, but I've never assumed they'd house me and even if they did, I have no mode of transportation.
    Why do these people think they can say "we want you" but not pay us or provide housing??

    Showbizdreamer 04/22/2017  10:19am

    Yeah, if you're a professional theatre company, you have to be offering some kind of perk. Housing, pay, EMC points, SOMETHING. I am not paying out of pocket to do your show that is out of state for me for "experience" or "connections".

    Yes, but that's only with Judy Henderson, this is with Judy Henderson as well as a current NYC talent manager.

    Lukedavidyoung123 04/22/2017  4:55pm

    You are her only client on imdbpro, hope she has more. Good going on that that latest book.

    happyhelen 04/22/2017  5:09pm


    I hope that this post works for you, I see what you are doing business wise, and great credentials on Judy.

    However, this is not the place to solicit money, it is for audition updates, hence the name.

    All the best business wise, and I hope that you have people sign on.

    But, next time I would post an ad in Playbill, or Backstage even.

    All the best-

    Just saw that audition notice for the tour was posted via backstage. However the notice does not mention location and date for the audition. Also it does not give you the option to submit online. Anyone have any details/information for this audition?


    I also want to know if these are required calls or they are actually looking for replacements.

    wickedwitchofthewest 04/22/2017  12:42pm

    Pretty sure they're required calls. I have a few friends on the tour and I don't think they're planning on leaving any time soon.

    Does anyone know where to get 8x10 printing paper? I hate cutting regular paper... any leads?

    Straight from google:

    There's also a thousand other places that popped up.

    littleeagle 04/22/2017  8:30am

    I saw that! but the reviews were very mixed

    04/22/2017  8:47am

    It's expensive on google and they charge you shipping. Go to Staples, get a box of 500 count regular resume paper and take it to the print dept. and have them cut it for you. 2 cuts and you've got 500 8 x 10 sheets in a box that you can use forever.

    okay so being a non-eq, what would be the best way to get seen for this? or will i definitely not be? plz help i am a noob


    There is a non eq day. I recieved an email from NYMF a while back that said it would be Thursday 5/4 and to check Michael Cassara casting's FB page in late April for more deets. There is usually an online sign up that fills up almost immediately, so you just need to be online and ready to go when sign ups open:) Good luck!
