All auditions are conducted on Zoom (or Google Meet).

Two to three days before your audition date, you'll receive an email with: Your specific audition time (to the nearest hour), the Zoom link (or Google Meet link), script sides and other useful information.

If you cannot make your appointed day/time, please send us an email letting us know. We usually have people on a waiting list, and your slot can be given to one of them. If you're a "no-show" for your audition, we will likely not schedule you for any future auditions you might sign up for.

Webcams are not needed. We're only interested in your voice.

When you first log in, you'll land in the Waiting Room. Sit tight. We'll get to you and everyone else as quickly as possible.

When you enter the Zoom (or Google Meet) session, we'll do a round of introductions, then ask some questions. Based on your answers, we'll pick the sides for the characters we want you to read. This general discussion before your audition will also include answering any questions you might have.

Please note that we don't "cattle call" our auditions. Other actors auditioning that day will not be in your session with you. We work one-on-one with actors in this regard. The only exception is if we want you to read a scene with another actor to gauge how compatible you are as those characters. This is called a "chemistry read," where we look at the chemistry between you and other actors.

We'll start the audition by having you read the sides we've chosen. You may be asked to do a side over. This doesn't mean you gave a bad performance. It usually means the producers and directors present want to try a different approach and see what kind of range you have.

When your audition is over, we'll see if you have any additional questions, and we'll give you an idea of our time frame for notifications. Then, you'll be returned to the Waiting Room. From there, simply close your browser to exit the session.
