  • Spring awakening EPA @ Telsey @ other 07/04/2015  9:37pm

    Anybody know if it's worth going in if you're non-eq? I'll be a couple hours away, but I'll make the trek if there's a chance of being seen...any non-eq people tried for a Telsey EPA before?

    2460done

    It totally depends on the day and the Equity turn out. I've been seen at a handful of Telsey EPAs. If it's something you're right for, make the trek!

    myfairlady 07/04/2015  10:09pm

    ^ I agree. I've been seen at Telsey as a non-eq almost every time I tried. The one time I was not it was because the turnout for Equity was so high that even some of them were turned away.

    nevertoolate 07/04/2015  11:11pm

    Thanks for the help guys. Also, what time did you show up the day of the audition?

    2460done 07/05/2015  12:57am

    Time of arrival depends on at least two things - one objective; one subjective.

    1 - A show like this normally will have a high Equity turnout. On the other hand, it's July. Almost every EPA I've seen in the past 30-days has had such a low turnout that I showed up midday and was seen within the next 30 minutes.

    2 - how eager and worried are you that you will come a long way and not be seen? That suggests that - regardless of the above - you might want to give yourself some insurance by being there very early, signing up very low on the non-Eq list - which is not guaranteed to be honored but is most of the time. Were that an issue for me - and this is just me - I would be there at 7am.

    Telsey is one block from the Port Authority Bus Terminal (which also contains multiple subway lines such as A, C and E). The door where early arrival wait is the west door of the building (a smaller entrance).

    nevertoolate 07/05/2015  12:27pm

    I just looked at the breakdown. It says "hearing impaired actors who sing for various roles."

    That will narrow the field and improve the chances of being seen even for a late arrival. Of course - it's still down to you and how certain you want to be.

  • Phantom of the Opera @ other 06/20/2015  12:08pm

    Hello! I have a callback for Christine for Phantom of the Opera on the 29th, and it is my very first Broadway audition. (I sent in an audition video initially.)

    I am wondering, do any of you know what Dodgers Atelier Studio A is like? Are the acoustics okay?

    The appointment is with Musical Supervisor- David Caddick, Production Supervisor- Seth Sklar-Heyn, and casting. Do you know what these people are like?

    Also, does anyone have a guess as to how many people have been called back for this role/how many people are usually at the first callbacks for a Broadway show?

    Thank you very much in advance! :)

    thimblelina

    You should post this in Callback Corner. Also, Seth is a really cool dude. I wouldn't worry too much about the other stuff (acoustics, other people who have been called back) because it's all out of your control and the only thing you can do is prep your material. Break legs!

    thedip 06/20/2015  1:36pm

    ^^^^absolutely. Don't worry about everyone else. Easier said than done I know. But I can't imagine you being in the room to see the other ladies, unless I'm totally wrong. You worry about YOU and YOUR prep and what you bring to it. Everything else is out of you control, so there's no point in worrying yourself :) break legs!

    showbizdreamer 06/21/2015  9:12pm

    When did you send in your tape/how soon did you hear? I recently submitted and am waiting for a reply. Thanks!

    PLT311 06/22/2015  7:39am

    Seth is great, he's friendly and encouraging. David is a bit stoic and loves a crystal clear sound. Just go be you!

    singsing3 06/22/2015  7:58am

    Thank you very, very much, everyone! :)

    I sent in my video on April 24th. I was told that the deadline to send in a video was May 1, 2015, but that may have changed. I got notified of my callback by email on June 9th.

    thimblelina 06/23/2015  11:29am

    (I'm sorry for not posting in the right place. I'm new to this website.)

    thimblelina 06/23/2015  11:30am

    @thimblelina, congratulations on this! Might I ask how you learned about the request for video submissions? Was it through an agent or did you see it posted somewhere? Thanks!

    LaVieBohEmily 06/23/2015  11:52am

    @LaVieBohEmily There was a call awhile ago for submissions on BackStage! :)

    justaskin 06/23/2015  1:57pm

    Hi! There is going to be another audition (ensemble) in July, but I can't make it to NY during that time. Do you know if/how I can submit a video audition?

    thatgirlsings 06/27/2015  10:33am

    @thatgirlsings Usually, unless they put out a posting or a breakdown asking for video submissions, they won't accept them. But Phantom has a number of required calls throughout the year, both for the Tour and for Broadway (and it's the same casting team for both), so if you can't make it this time, there will be others!

    14ergirl 06/28/2015  10:40am

    Hey thimblelina! How did it go?? Did they just have you sing/read the material emailed or did they give you any extra material? I'm asking since I have a callback this week as well.

    Luckyclover4 06/29/2015  5:22pm

    @Luckyclover4
    I just sang Think of Me and did the scene. I'm not sure, but I don't think they had anyone sing Wishing. It went well! They are very nice. They didn't say anything either way about further callbacks/what happens next, so I'm very anxious about it. Congratulations on your callback! May I ask what day it is?

    thimblelina 06/30/2015  10:27am

    I'm wondering the same- I know the email said to bring your book of music JIC but I'd love to know if they've asked anyone else for other material! I'm going in tomorrow.

    SauronBareillis 06/30/2015  10:27am

    I was in today, and sang Think of Me and did the scene!

    jjsinger 06/30/2015  4:15pm

    Bump!
    Does anyone know when people might be notified about further callbacks?

    thimblelina 07/03/2015  6:10pm

    Dodgers is tiny and rough acoustics!

    SETH is awesome ;)

  • Saaang444 @ 07/03/2015  12:29pm

    I know that offers have gone out and are accepted for Potts and Wardrobe. But that is all I have heard for national.

    Saaang444

    Blatant this was supposed to be a response to a callback corner thread. Sorry for the useless clutter!

  • She Loves Me APPTS @ other 05/06/2015  11:51am

    Hey, I know agent breakdowns are out for the upcoming B'way revival. Has anyone received an appointment for this yet??

    fivesixseven8

    Bump. Has anyone heard of appts for ensemble? I'd been told they might just be making offers, and I'm wondering if that's true.

  • Disney Cruise Line @ Ripley Grier 520 06/22/2015  8:33pm

    I've never auditioned for Disney before and am curious about how they run - how early are girls thinking of getting there tomorrow?

    mathematical

    If you get there before 9:45 you'll definitely get seen. They don't honor unofficial lists but they shouldn't cut the list off before 10am.
    Get there by 9-9:30 and you'll still get seen before lunch...

    AnActor 06/22/2015  10:24pm

    Show up any time around 9-9:30 and sit close to th E front of the table so you can be first in line otherwise you will be in the back of the line. They also type first. Take girls of about 40 in at a time and usually keep about 6.

    whysocold 06/23/2015  7:29am

    Anyone there for the Disney audition yet?

    Smiled811 06/23/2015  7:33am

    Please don't recommend a table bum rush. It's rude for the people who get there earlier. We already have enough problems. Stay in line-we will all get to sign up in that order and then get seen.

    SansaIsMyHomegirl 06/23/2015  7:53am

    What's the line looking like?

    Little-one 06/23/2015  8:19am

    Just about 30 right now

    Sharksss 06/23/2015  8:33am

    What's the line looking like?

    Little-one 06/23/2015  8:36am

    It's starting to fill up but nothing crazy. It is summer after all

    Luckyclover4 06/23/2015  9:15am

    It's about 100 right now at 9:01

    cre09b 06/23/2015  9:20am

    Did they say what time they are closing the list?

    Newbie 06/23/2015  9:39am

    Are they doing callbacks in the room?

    Indie17 06/23/2015  10:00am

    Arrived 9:45...list is closed, looks like it had been for a while.

    ilovebroadway123 06/23/2015  10:15am

    are they giving callbacks in the room?

    mathematical 06/23/2015  11:09am

    Callbacks are given ITR

    Luckyclover4 06/23/2015  11:12am

    Anyone know if they'll see women at the men's call this afternoon time permitting?

    ilovebroadway123 06/23/2015  11:57am

    Just to clarify. whysocold you are correct, if it's merely a character audition. These calls are for singers, they do not type out at these. I think MAYBE they've done this once that I'm aware of because that call so SUPER crowded, but, that's a big maybe.

    showbizdreamer 06/23/2015  12:36pm

    People with audition appointments: are they giving callbacks ITR?

    actress9315 06/23/2015  1:23pm

    Anyone know if they'll see women at the men's call this afternoon time permitting?

    ilovebroadway123 06/23/2015  4:12pm

    Does anyone know when they will be making offers??

    singer5 06/30/2015  2:49pm

    I was told yesterday that we would be told within 3 weeks.

    Dancer95 07/02/2015  12:15pm

    I was just made an offer via email this afternoon.

  • 7 on the noneq list!

    jazzyingenuebestfriend 07/02/2015  9:21am

    Can anyone post who was in the room besides Howie?

    Crazykid 07/02/2015  10:34am

    Update on appointments?

    myfairlady 07/02/2015  10:37am

    Are non-eqs being seen?

    Daisym 07/02/2015  10:42am

    It's dead, emc were seen in 10:10 group, non eq will be seen very very soon. If anyone thinks of pianist name who was asst MD please post!

    Crazykid 07/02/2015  10:49am

    Just got seen as non-eq immediately. List is totally open. Gotta shout out another big compliment to the accompanist. Listened carefully to me and followed all my accents and vocal choice brilliantly. More of him!

    toloveanotherperson 07/02/2015  11:48am

    Yep, the accompanist's name is Mason Griffin and he is always amazing! I also got seen immediately as a non-eq.

    bwaylvsong 07/02/2015  12:23pm

    Mason Griffin was on piano, he's the assistant to the MD and I also thought he was wonderful.

    missstarlight 07/02/2015  12:27pm
  • It's an EPA, so women and men are not split up, but anyways, 6 on non-eq list. How's it looking on the Equity side?

    SansaIsMyHomegirl 07/01/2015  9:30am

    Open appts in virtually all time slots.

    BBrave 07/01/2015  9:55am

    Are they seeing non eq today? Love this show!

    Onefineday 07/01/2015  10:13am

    Yeah, any word on non-eq?

    Ohmy 07/01/2015  10:19am

    8 out of 9 non-eq already called at 10:15. Appointments open all day. Go get seen!!

    SansaIsMyHomegirl 07/01/2015  10:40am

    Great! Thanks so much.

    Ohmy 07/01/2015  10:45am

    Who is ITR?

    Luvs2Belt 07/01/2015  10:53am

    Howie Cherpakov and accompanist

    BBrave 07/01/2015  11:20am

    If anyone knows who the accompanist is, I'd love to know!

    kb 07/01/2015  12:48pm

    The accompanist today was Mason Griffin. He's an absolute doll!

    equitypoverty 07/01/2015  6:12pm

    Hey! Mason isn't on here, but he says
    THANKS!

    And I say: you can reach him at masongriffin4@yahoo.com for coachings, or . . . whatever.

    Hope everyone had a good callback today!!

    Has anyone heard anything for final call backs?

    KacyRose

    Nope :/

    whysocold 06/30/2015  11:11pm

    final callbacks are not until august, so emails will likely go out in a few weeks.
