- Hey everyone-
Some of you have been asking about the way callbacks will be structured. Here's what I know:
We will warmup and do some stretching and then do a little movement work--kind of like a follow the leader type thing. For the rest of the time we will do some improv, some musical Improv, and work through a sketch. You will be emailed the sketch on the night of auditions (Monday) so that you and the other people in callbacks will have the same amount of time to look over it. You are also welcome to stop by late at auditions on Monday and pick one up. We expect the sketch to be memorized by the callback.
All people invited to the callback will stay for the whole three hours. We do not know how many people will be at the callback. No decisions will be made at that time. We will then set up individual meetings with non-TC members that we would like to talk more with (so no individual meetings for you!). The final casting decision will be made after the close of these meetings.
You will be notified by phone sometime between the callback and Friday at 5 PM. Friday at 5 will be when the cast list is made public.
Less that 24 hours to memorize a sketch. Nice. My weakest point. Of course I assume they're doing it to get rid of me. I know that's not the case, but it feels that way-- and it also jacks the terror quotient up about 90% higher.
I like the fact that we don't have to go through interviews again, but I don't like the fact that we don't get an answer until the final decision is going to be made. Other folks who are getting cut will know right then cause they won't get an interview.
And to top it all off, we'll be told by 5 PM on Friday. The day and time I'm leaving for my birthday ski weekend. Oh yea, this will turn the whole weekend into a huge bundle of fun.
