For CP auditions, you don't need a head shot or sheet music- just yourself.

I wore comfortable black pants and a t-shirt.

also, i don't know if this would be "cheating" but do they care if you branch out and talk to the other hopefuls?

Yoga pants are fine.


It's fine. You just have to be careful what is discussed.

A headshot is not necessary, neither is a resume, but if you have previous experience, it's in your own benefit to make it known.

3. I would say comfortably.
1. So everything is done by your weight?

2. Yes, but I read on the audition main site about the singing. I do want to sing, do they not do that at all?

3. Thanks!

1. No. Everything is done by height. But there are a few characters where weight is important. For the others, it isn't (to an extent).

2. That is not for CPs. CPs don't have any singing roles in entertainment. The only singing roles fall under Equity (which is FT/PT).

3. You're welcome.

1) Not everything. Only certain characters, like face characters. Otherwise, everything *is* done by height, and often your height can make or break you when it comes to a role.

2) Roles that involved singing, like 'Voices of Liberty' are not available to CPs, only FT/PT/Seasonal Entertainment CMs, and often, it's only Equity performers who get these roles.

Smile Hey Guys!

Hey everyone! Thanks for all the advice on the auditions.
I've applied for the Spring 09 Advantage CP. I've already had my interview and now I just have to wait for my audition. Is anyone auditioning in Chicago? If so, I'll see ya there!

Will they tell you what role you'd be put in should you choose to not wait to be called for character performer? For example, if my second choice is Character Attendant, would they let me know if I chose to not be a performer, I would be placed as an attendant until it fills?

If I decide to stay in the character pool and don't get called before I leave for Florida, will they extend an invitation to be in a role that I didn't choose on my role checklist? For example, if I don't put custodial on my checklist, but everything else is full, could they put me in custodial last minute?


Has anyone had any experience with this and had to be put into another role last minute? What roles were left?
