SCHEDULE: Auditions each day run from 10AM - 6PM. Organizations are expected to arrive by 9:45 AM, to sign in and get settled. Late arrivals may not be able to enter until the next 10-minute break. Note: Auditions may be extended until 7pm to accommodate more performers. Please plan to stay until 7pm.
YOUTH: Youth auditions (singing & non-singing) will take place from 10-11AM on Sunday 4/5. Those who are not considering youth performers may come in for the 11AM start of non-equity non-singing auditions.
BREAKS: There will be 10-minute breaks at the end of each hour, and a lunch break from 1-2PM each day.
ATTENDEES: You are allowed TWO auditors in the room at a time per ticket. You may sub people in throughout the day, but in order to comply with capacity of the space, we will require that only 2 people be in the auditions from your organization at a time. If you MUST have more people in the room from your organization, please purchase the audition add-on at our store.
HEADSHOTS & RESUMES: Each ticket is granted ONE headshot/resume per auditionee. If you would like to purchase an additional set of headshots/resumes, or if you are not able to attend the auditions but want access to the headshot/resume database, you can head to our store. After the auditions, we email you a spreadsheet of ALL the actors who attended along with links to digital versions of their headshots and resumes!
FOOD: Coffee, light breakfast, and lunch will be provided.
QUESTIONS? Email firstname.lastname@example.org
1. All theatres must provide AEA a full and complete casting notice for this audition at least 3 weeks prior to the date of the StageSource Auditions, emailed as a word document to: email@example.com
a. This casting notice should contain all information for the audition, such as the date, time, location, appointment procedure, preparation instructions.
b. Must also include a full list of all the theatre’s creative team who will be in attendance at the StageSource Auditions
c. Must include a complete breakdown of the upcoming season shows for which these auditions are being held for the theatre. This includes for each show (keeping each bit of information with each show): Title of Show, Writer’s name, Director’s Name, Musical Director and Choreographer’s name if appropriate, rehearsal/production dates, listing of all roles available (and those that are CAST) in each show and character descriptions.
2. For all theatres operating under the AEA NEAT or LORT Agreements, these StageSource Auditions may count toward one of the theatre’s required Local EPAs and the casting notice must include all shows in the upcoming season. Theatres operating under other AEA contracts should refer to their agreement to see if they must provide information on the whole season, or if they are permitted to use these StageSource auditions for a show-specific audition.
3. For NEAT and LORT Theatre, no audition concession is required for participation in the StageSource Auditions.
4. Theatres operating under all other AEA Contracts must request an audition concession in order for this participation to count toward any portion of the theatre’s required AEA auditions.
a. This request must be submitted to Andrea Murray, the Audition Center Director (at: firstname.lastname@example.org) ASAP so that there is proper time for her to forward such request to the appropriate committee for review and determination.
b. The concession request should reflect exactly what the theatre is requesting pursuant to its requirements under the AEA agreement (for example, an SPT Theatre would like to request a concession to hold 2 days of Local Seasonal EPAs in lieu of separate show-specific EPAs, and one of which would be fulfilled through participation at the Stage Source Auditions). Theatres should review their AEA Agreements to know their current audition requirements and what they are requesting as part of the concession.
c. The concession request must also contain a full breakdown of the entire season shows and roles available (with descriptions)
