Stonehenge XIV: Lottery Results Sent

Emails have been sent to the several hundred actors who registered for Stonehenge XIV (aka Stonehenge 14).

If you registered, check your email, including spam filter if needed.

Every actor who took the plunge and clicked on the “Stonehenge XIV Actor Registration” project on Stonehenge Casting was sent an email.

For all of you actors, this is an important reminder: by signing up for this audition, you are agreeing to do your part to make the Stonehenge Auditions run smoothly. That means you have and read and understand everything in the Stonehenge Auditions Actor FAQ. In case you’re wondering what you’ve agreed to, here’s that link again.

Here are some key points you want to remember:

You are 18 years of age or older and you can legally work in the United States
Yes, this should be obvious considering these are both part of the terms and conditions to register on the Stonehenge Casting website. But just in case you are younger than 18 OR can’t legally work in the U.S., you have to let us know — and you have to cancel.

You are able to audition on Monday, September 28th
Again, we would hope this would be obvious, but some emails we’ve gotten from actors make us wonder. The first audition slot is 10:00am and the last audition slot is 5:45pm. We’ve done our best to accommodate any conflicts you listed. If you have any conflicts come up between now and September 28th –or even during September 28th– you need to cancel.

You will have 50 Headshots and Resumes in the correct format at the audition
Every Stonehenge Audition, some actor doesn’t have enough headshots and resumes and doesn’t get to audition. We’ll confirm the number of headshots in the final email. It may be less than 50. It will not be more than 50. If you cannot have 50 headshot/resumes in the proper format (see the FAQ), you have to cancel.

You will be at the check-in desk THIRTY (30) minutes before your audition time
30 minutes before your audition time IS your call time. If you can’t be on time, be early.

So, in other words, if you have a 10:00am slot, you’re there at 9:30am. If you have a 3:15pm slot, you are there at 2:45pm. This does not mean parking your car around 2:45pm nor being somewhere in the building at 2:45pm. When your name is called, you need to be there or you lose your slot.

The auditions will be held at the Source Theater in Washington, DC. Expect traffic to be bad and Metro to be plagued with demons. Plan accordingly.

You will pick a suitable monologue
What you choose for your monologue and how you present it in an appropriately non-theatrical style is part of your audition. While Stonehenge Casting is open for all sorts of performers, Stonehenge Auditions are specifically for actors looking for film and video work (again, see the FAQ).

You will cancel if you cannot attend for whatever reason 
We know life happens and we don’t care what reason you have to cancel (though we hope it’s a good reason, like getting a great paid gig). Whatever the reason, you need to cancel. That simply means you sent an email to stonehenge@teamjabberwocky.com with your name and timeslot.

We look forward to seeing you at the Henge!

Stonehenge Lottery Results Sent, Plus Some Reminders

Almost 300 actors registered for slots at our Fall Stonehenge in Baltimore. We were very excited to see so many actors new to Stonehenge registering (and getting audition slots), so in part we want to share a few reminders.

First, everyone who registered received an email telling them whether they had an audition slot or not. If, for some reason, you did not receive an email, please check your spam filter. If you still find nothing, give us a shout at stonehenge@teamjabberwocky.com.

Secondly–and this is something we’ve found is peculiar to our Charmhenges aka henges in Baltimore–is that our our actors drop off in the afternoon. We’re not about to allow walk-ins, we’d just suggest the existing stand-bys be a bit more patient. Naturally, if all of you follow this advice, some of you still won’t audition, but before you all go into wondering if this is reverse psychology or reverse reverse psychology–we just think you should show up.

That leads to our final point, which is to definitely let us know if you can’t make it. Just shoot a quick email to stonehenge@teamjabberwocky.com and let us know you have to cancel. You don’t need to give a reason and actors can and do email us the day of–as emergencies can be sudden.

Remember, if you have a guaranteed space and don’t let us know, you get on the Mud List, which means you don’t get to audition at any Stonehenge for three years. Nowadays, that means missing out on nine (9) Stonehenge, an average of 180 different filmmakers, and an average of 450 roles being cast.

Go for the good karma and send us an email. We’ll see you at a future henge!

Lottery Results Emailed!

Over 280 actors registered for Stonehenge IX over the past two weeks. We conducted our lottery earlier today and have now sent out emails to everyone who registered.

Just to reiterate: if you registered for Stonehenge, you have been sent an email, whether or not you got a slot.

If for some reason you have not received an email–and with spam filters, that is a possibility–send us an email at stonehenge@teamjabberwocky.com.

Remember, that if you cannot attend for whatever reason, please shoot us a quick email to cancel your slot. There’s several people on the waitlist that would love to audition.

For those of you who were not selected, the next Stonehenge will be in late March/Early April 2010–and we’ll be returning to Washington, DC, so hopefully we’ll see you there!

Stonehenge VI (DC, 3/29) Actor Lottery Results Emailed

352 actors registered for the lottery in hopes of getting a slot at the next Stonehenge. There are only 192 spaces–so a little more than half of you should now be polishing up your monologues.

Actors with a guaranteed or standby space were sent an individual email. Actors on the waitlist or who were not selected will be sent a general email. If you need more information about the four different statuses, check the FAQ.

Because “Lottery Results” is a phrase unfortunately sometimes used in the subject lines of spam emails, look for “Stonehenge VI Actor Selection” in the subject line.

Remember this is a lottery–actors’ names were drawn at random from the pool of 352 and assigned slots in the order they were drawn. Actors were placed in timeslots if there was space available. If guaranteed space was not available, actors were given the closest available timelot so long as it did not conflict with stated restrictions. After that, all the standby spaces filled up.

If you are unable to attend during your timeslot, please let us know as soon as possible at stonehenge@teamjabberwocky.com. We’re happy to move you to a new timeslot, but that will mean being on standby for that new timeslot as all available spaces are filled.

As will be mentioned in your email, actors MUST arrive 15 minutes before their assigned timeslot for check-in or they forfeit their space. Plan on bringing AT LEAST 40 headshots/resumes. The exact number will be sent a day or two before the event.

Check back as this blog for regular updates.
