We'll have the following time set aside specifically for walk-ups:
Saturday, November 30th @ 1:00 - 1:45p
Auditioners will be seen on a first-come basis during that time.
In addition to having that time, we should have the occasional slot open up throughout the two audition days based on slotted auditions' timing and any no-shows. Those fill-ins will also be seen on a first-come basis.
We will do our best to see walk-up auditions but nothing is guaranteed.
Check out Backstage's fantastic 21 Things That Make Casting Directors Happy in the Audition Room.
1. Accept the invitation with grace and enthusiasm. You were requested to be here as our guest.
2. Come to work and not to please or get our approval.
3. Enter with certainty. Don’t give up your power as soon as the door opens.
4. Play on a level playing field. We’re all figuring it out. Together.
5. Make no excuses whatsoever. Leave your baggage outside. Better yet, at home.
6. Make the room your own. It will make us so much more comfortable.
7. Ask questions only when you truly need answers. “Do you have any questions?” is usually another way of saying: “Are you ready?” You aren’t required to have one.
8. Know your words and understand what you’re talking about. You don’t have to be totally off-book, but if you’ve spent quality time with the material, you’re going to know it.
9. Do your homework on the project. This includes knowing all the players and the show or film’s tone and style. Read all the material you can get your hands on.
10. Make choices and take responsibility for the choices you make.
