It is time for me to say goodbye. Please go to this post on the Bitching Post for a very important announcement.
Hi! Is anyone planning on camping out outside of Chelsea? I'm curious as to how crazy this is gonna be and if it's worth camping out for haha
I think it’d be awesome if people didn’t camp out and just started a list at a sensible hour!
That's a beautiful idea ^
I also agree. however what is a sensible hour
There's no list. Telsey never accepts lists for open calls. If you want to be seen early you need to wait in line.
People keep saying telsey but it is at chelsea studios right? is telsey running the auditions?
Telsey is running the auditions and it's at Chelsea studios tomorrow
I was at the LA open call... (different coast different rules... disclaimer...)
I arrived at 6am there was an unofficial list going around. There was 40-ish at 6am...
Then toward 8am the list exploded to 210 people were sitting and clumping and hoping the list would be honored. then at 9am casting showed up some blessed intern lead the line to another door... and went by the unofficial list. And the official sign in process started.
One fella did report camping out to be 10 on the list.
Like I said different coast different rules-- I'd imagine NYC is bad ass hard core cur throat... I'd bet camping is going to occur.
oh and... they allowed "one verse and one chorus"
BUT it was acapella and they divided people into rooms... and I'm pretty sure the REAL casting director was only in 1 magical room... if you had the disfortune of being sent to the intern room you were doomed...
(**Cue flashbacks to standing in the American Idol line**)
seeing as im taking the midnight bus to ny for this, I have nowhere else to be, but it the rain for 4 hours :(
Go to Starbucks boo 👆🏾
There's one on the corner of 26th and 7th
I overheard quite a few people planning on camping out. I would honestly be there no later than 5:30/ 6 am if you plan on being seen. (6am being you will probably be seen closer to 2pm)
Do they type at these???
^At all the other calls (In Cali...) they didn't type out...
(I think Hamilton is still in hot water from the union over the "non-white" word-age in the original casting notice... so they saw EVERYONE... but they ended the line... and stopped letting people in after a certain number... in LA I think it was 1,200)
Soooooooooooooo people are already lined up for the audition just FYI. . . I know others are going home to grab stuff and heading over SOOOOO yea. . . . use that information as you will.
Also, in terms of typing they do have the right to type of they choose. . . I know they are not looking for Ensemble dancers or King George at tomorrow's call so that might be a reason why they typed in the morning. (Hopefully this makes sense I'm tired)
But like, why don't we respect ourselves and each other enough to wait for the sun to come up on the actual audition date to line up? Go to sleep.
Right! I am NOT throwing away my SLEEP.
Who knows for sure about people lining up already ?
This is ridiculous... It's gonna start raining soon... Not only that doing a line that sacrifices your health your energy and your voice
people are posting on Twitter about having already gotten in line! just search "Hamilton open call"
People are already on line.
Search #hamiltonopencall on Twitter
GO TO BED! You'll thank yourself later.
#whiteguywhoisunaffectedbythisopencall #takecareofyourself #youwillstillgetseen
I can confirm ppl are lined up already with my own eyes I saw
this like this are embarrassing. have a little pride in your work. this isn't a concert, it's art.
this has to be people who don't live here right?
It doesn't matter where you are from...this is just unacceptable on so many levels. I'm waiting for the day that shows stop having open calls because people aren't thinking and potentially putting themselves in danger.
For my fellow NYC-based working actors -
I have already had one preliminary audition for Hamilton at telsey and co and haven't heard since so I figured I would just show up again to be seen by a different casting assistant/intern/maybe even the CD...but this looks like a madhouse that might not be worth me missing out on $$ from day job/sleep/health...Advice? Thanks as always and stay safe out there!
Can someone confirm how many people you see in line? Is it like 10 or like 50? haha
^^you're right. I'm glad we all have a united front on how insane this is. #AUUnite #firsttimeweallagree
Does anyone know how many people are out there at this point?
I am in the same position as @littlebrowngirl went in last week for a preliminary audition and was going to come to do the same tomorrow but now this just seems absolutely insane. Any word on how the line is looking?
Yep it's true. People are lined up with lawn chairs....saw it with my own two eyes.
When I was in the area (which was around 11pm), there were at least 10 people in line already. My mouth DROPPED! This audition is going to be crazy....just like Motown's open call. I expect massive amounts of people.
Line should be in between 70-100... People are all cluttered between umbrellas so you can't tell.
NO UNOFFICIAL LIST
O hell no. Over night?!?!?! in the rain to sing?!?!? Calm down brown ppl. u know we pull in at most 2 hours before the audition time, Not 12 hours!!!! Lord have mercy on your chords. I should go just to instagram these fools. #GoodGodGirlGetaGrip
So Chelsea Studios opens at 8. Anyone think they'll let us in then?
Are they letting ya in the building?
Should people still show up? Any updates on line?
We are inside it is very chaotic at the moment trying to figure out whats going on with the list while everyone is warming up together.
Hey all -
Our AEA contract and concession require us to hold two full days of EPAs for the upcoming off-Broadway production of LIBERTY - this Tuesday (5/3) and Wednesday (5/4). If history is any guide, we imagine this call will be pretty open and a VERY good chance for EMC and non-Equity performers to potentially be seen...
If you're in the realm for the available roles, we hope you can come in. Please note, we ARE hiring swings so, if you could cover one or more of the roles that are already cast - it might be a good idea to come in, as well.
More details up on our page:
Bump for updates on 5his. Anyone there? Thanks!
Non-eq list up to 6 a few minutes ago
Does anyone have a link to the self-tape voiceover auditions for the new Peckles show for Nickelodeon? (sorry I double posted bc I accidentally put this on callback corner first). Thanks in advance!
Any update on line craziness?
Line is currently wrapped around 6th Ave and is halfway down 27th St.
Any count on an unofficial list?
What is this??
Are people seriously lined up already ?? This is crazy ?!
I'm sure standing around in the rain all night will make for a grrrreeeeaaaatttt audition. Good luck with that kids. Foolishness.
thats fucked up. sorry. it is. wow
Yes....people are already there....lawn chairs and all. At least 10 people were in line at 11pm.
Any update ??
Update: it's still too early to be lined up.
Any updates on how many people are waiting on line right now?
I say about 40 and no unofficial list 😒
Y'all all gon be sick as hell.
How many people are lined up already?
Besides the few crazy people who slept here, it's not terrible. There are about 50 ppl at 4 am.
How bad would it be looking to get there by 6ish? This weather is def gonna kill my voice if I'm standing outside forever lol
I'm here it's about 5am - line is half way between 6th and 7th Ave so I would say over 100 people
Still no unofficial right?
No unofficial. Definitely over a hundred people. Trying to remain positive........ But this is rough y'all
Does anyone know if Chelsea is planning on letting anyone in before 10am?
I think so. I think they open at 8:30.
So apparently we have two lines going. One towards 6th and one towards 7th.... This is going to be a disaster.
There aren't two lines guys, no worries 😊
O hell no. Over night?!?!?! in the rain to sing?!?!? Calm down brown ppl. u know we pull in at most 2 hours before the audition time, Not 12 hours!!!! Lord have mercy on your chords.
Any updates for today?
There were about 7 on the EMC list at 9:20
Bump for updates
Any one know who is in the room?
Bump for non-eq information
Bump for non-eq
BUMP for appr availability
It's wide open they've seen almost every non eq
I know someone's asked already, but: who was in the room? Can't remember his name--not Daniel Swee
Anyone know if these auditions run through the rest of the week?
Does anyone have a link to original the EPA audition posting?
there was 3 of them. and yesterday was the last.
usual if I search the same of the play backstage and 2016 the call comes up. hope that helps
So is there any word about what is going on at non-Hamilton calls today?
Do they usually do callbacks for this?
Went to the open call in LA today, just checking if anyone got callback appts and if it was an immediate invite or an email!
Yes. Two of my friends, both male, just got emails.
They said it looks like general men's sides.
Hope that helps!
Bump. --- even though I don't know what that means. Did I use it right? Lol
Thank you Bethie!
Helps a lot!
No idea what the bump means lol
How early did you get there? How many people? I'm going the call in NY and want to know how early I should get there!
bump pushes the topic up to the top of the list so it can be seen on the main page.
I'd get to the open call at 4am (or you will be VERY VERY sad...)
