Note: All of this is covered on some level in the Actor FAQ, which is on the website.
This does not replace the second confirmation email you will receive at the end of this week.
#1: Let us Know if you Won’t Show.
We’re looking forward to seeing you all this Saturday, however, statistically speaking, we won’t.
Many of you won’t show up.
We understand there are numerous reasons why you may not be able to make it to the audition this Saturday and that’s fine. In fact, we hope it’s for some great reason like you’ve got a paid gig somewhere. The key thing is, whether you have a guaranteed space or a standby space, let us know if you won’t show. A quick email to email@example.com and you make another actor’s day.
Remember, if you have a guaranteed space, do not show up and DO NOT CANCEL, you will be on our mud list. That means you don’t
get to audition at any Stonehenge for at least the next three years. If you
have a standby space, we still want to know if you have to cancel. We will make a note of it if you do not show and don’t let us know. Over 500 actors tried to sign up for 192 spaces. If you’re not going to use your space, let us know.
#2: It’s okay to be late
There’s any number of good reasons why you might be late. The Metro may be swamped with people off to see the cherry blossoms. Parking may be abysmal. We want you there in one piece ready to audition. Don’t stress about things you can’t control.
Mind you, it’s not great to be late. First off, you’ve lost your space. You need to be there fifteen minutes before your audition time. That’s when we call that audition time. If you’re not there at the check-in desk when we call, odds are you’ve lost your space. We don’t judge, we just move on.
If you are late, we will try and fit you into a standby space and, at the very least, distribute your headshots and resumes. However, it’s best not to be late.
#3: Have the right number of headshots
You will get the exact number of headshots/resumes needed in the second
confirmation email later this week. The number will also be listed on the Team J blog (this blog) around that same time.
Make sure you’ve counted your headshots beforehand so you’re handing us the correct number. Extras usually find their way to the trash.
Thanks for reading. We look forward to seeing you Saturday.
