This is what I was referring to as my “commitments” on Sunday. All the best to all the actors who auditioned – and to the playwrights and directors. I had a great time at my callbacks, a really relaxed and fun, creative environment – which is exactly how it should be. 🙂
Thanks to all the actors who attended the general auditions for New Ideas, and congratulations to those who were called back last week for individual plays. Sorry, actors: yet another week of anxiously waiting to hear stretches in front of you!
Each play’s director is now required to submit a list of their top 3 casting choices to the Artistic Directors of New Ideas by Jan 16. Conflicts (the same actor requested as #1 choice for two plays scheduled in the same week of the Festival, for example) will be sorted out at a production meeting on January 20.
We cannot offer roles to any actors until after that meeting. Hang on!
