It is time for me to say goodbye. Please go to this post on the Bitching Post for a very important announcement.
Has anyone been given an appointment through their agent yet?
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
Thank you! This is wonderful news for non-union! :)
Thank you wonderful Michael!
They've sent the non-eq people upstairs!
Update on non eq?
Bump to that^
Have any Non-Eqs been seen?
They've seen about 10 non equity. You'll probably get seen if you come
Yes, lots of non-eqs have been seen. Jamie Anderson joined and then replaced Michael Cassara behind the table. The accompanist Eugene Gwozdz was excellent. Go and get seen in a very warm room!
I was seen immediately as non eq at 11:30. It's wide open!
I signed up at lunch and I've already been seen! Looks wide open still!
UPDATE: we were able to see all EMC and non-Equity performers who came in today. Whole new day tomorrow, we encourage you to come in and sing from your book - even if the tracks in this show don't seem like a slam dunk for you... it's our busy season and we'd rather see people than sit in an empty room.
www.facebook.com has the details
Anyone have more info about this audition? It's not on backstage. Are sign-ins at 9:00am or does it start promptly at 9:00am? Should we be prepared to dance at 9:00? Anyone have info or experience at a past call?
THIS! Does anyone know? I've heard in the past it was sign-in by 9 and not too crazy?
I have the feeling that it will not be too hectic since it's quite a specific show and also since it's not even posted on backstage... PLEASE if anyone knows anything, share!!!
People who have appointments tomorrow for Johanna and Anthony. Has anyone asked how much to sing? The email said to "prepare a song from the show if possible". Does that imply the whole song?
What theater is this for?
I know this will probably get lost amongst the 18 Hamilton posts, but can somebody keep an eye and post any updates? Thanks.
Slow...Lots of equity spots available. Got here at 7:15am, was #4. I think everyone is at the Hamilton auditions 😀 Lol
Please update on appointments and who's ITR. Thanks.
Earliest available appointment just now was 11:30 AM.
Thanks. How many EMCs signed up? Called?
Are they seeing non-eq? Thanks!
Shave they said anything about non-equity?
As of 15 minutes ago, 15 EMCs were signed up, none called
released non-eqs until after lunch
As of a few minutes past 12, it was up to 17 on the EMC signup list, with none yet called.
bump on appts/alts thanks!
Any update on non eq? TY!
No news for non-eqs yet other than that they are accepting drop-offs.
Have they seen any EMC yet?
Bump...any EMCs called? Thx
Non-eqs officially dismissed. Still accepting drop-offs.
Any EMCs called?
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.
is there a moderator yet?
Any updates on what's happening inside the studio?
how's the line looking outside?
They have us waiting in two rooms..there was some confusion over whether they were honoring an unofficial list which had been started
.but they said they were not honoring it...we are waiting to get numbers but people are just in here willy nilly
Is there any word as to when/whether they are letting more people up?
I would guess that no one else will be let up until sign up begins at 10 or even after everyone up here gets numbers.
Just saw Bethany from Telsey!
So there are still a lot of people outside? Any signs of being let up or are they waiting until sign up begins to see how much space they have? Thanks soldiers!
Line is still wrapped around 6th ave. I was there promoting the new app Bookster! If you haven't checked it out yet, try the free trial. Break legs today everybody!
Has the sign in process begun inside?
Can anyone tell us when they start sign-in and if you all get any info on what will happen with people still outside? wondering if they're capping the line/seeing more than 100 people lol
bump de bump bump.
Any and all updates appreciated from those in the room where it happens!
Currently at the back of the line. It's wrapped around 6th going up 27th street still. Haven't heard anything from inside
Hi guys, I got here around 10:30am. Decided...yes I need sleep and to come with a well rested voice. The line was wrapped around...so from 26th St going up 6th Ave...wrapping around 27th St...then curving back down 7th Ave to 26th St. They let people in and the line is slowly moving. Still outside. The people toward the front when I got here were from the 8am arrival group. Midway on 27th St there is a female intern/moderator handing out a white half sheet of paper with #s. She was up to about #696. I'm toward the back to estimate I would be maybe #1000 by the time she reaches us. More people behind me.
Any updates from INSIDE?
Line is moving much faster now. Moved about 1 block in under an hour.
it's crazy in there! I was number 117 and finished about 30 minutes ago. they have 4 auditon rooms running with groups of 10 at a time. auditons are running through 6pm
They extended auditions through 6pm? So they will be seeing through all the numbers currently in line then?
all the signs up on the doors say the auditons are running to 6pm. they are doing some callbacks in the room and some by email tonight. Callbacks are on Thursday
are they still letting people in for this?
UPDATE: I got my #! Number 1052. The lady came around outside about half hour ago. She said if you have a number you will definitely be seen. I am outside on 27th St but the line is moving. They extended the audition time.
also they are doing acapella 1 verse and chorus
What number are they on inside and outside? They've stopped giving numbers correct?
Whoever got all that pizza in line…..god bless you
Are they still letting people sign up if they're extending it to 6?
Has anyone received an email with Thursday callback information yet? Are they for sure sending emails tonight or is everyone finding out in the room? Thanks xoxo
i didn't get anything yet...but they are extending it to 6pm. and there were more than 1100 ppl in line...I doubt we'll hear anything tonight. if anything we'll hear by tomorrow morning!
15 alternates here so far
Bump! How's it looking?
Are they seeing non eq?
I was 5 on alternates and got seen around 10:40 if that helps? They have separate alt lists for theater/ film and TV. Moving pretty well!
What number are they on for alternates?
bump. I don't remember seeing this posted. how late is the call? are they accepting drop offs from the alternates they don't get to?
#1 on EMC list...a ghost town for full card too.
could someone post who is in the room?
are they seeing non-eq?
Any unofficial females list started?
This is at NOLA correct?
Does anyone know how many girls are signed up at fireside so far?
Just got here (12:30) and am 62 on the female noneq list.
They saw all the boys and finished early.
There seems to be a steady stream of girls showing up.
What are they doing? Any updates?
I see on the backstage audition calendar that there are auditions at the end of this week. I'm not a backstage member, so I can't view any of the info. Have looked at playbill for the info, but can't find it. Is this audition info posted anywhere for free?
