...and this week's momentous events, 88 lines about 44 presidents.

In other news, having heard nothing, I'm assuming no callback for Winter's Tale. Not surprising, given the small number of women's parts and the number of people who are both better actresses and more in with the group than I, but still, it's always disappointing. I was proud of my monologue, though.

Not being called back does not necessarily mean not being cast -- sometimes they really have seen all they need to in the auditions. In any case, I'm not called back either, but I'm still holding out hope. (And being more in with the group really does count for very little. We tend to pretty consistently cast about half and half new vs returning people, and try very hard not to show favoritism unless it's a real dead tie between two performers.)

agreed - when i cast my one act last year, there were people i definitely *knew* i wanted to cast even without seeing them come back a 2nd time!

Fortunately, our own expectations about whether or not we'll be cast don't affect the actual casting. :-)

On Callbacks

Now I've wondered. Is it always assumed that if you don't get called back you don't get a part? In the shows I've directed I only do callbacks if I can't decide between people. But if I know why bother having a callback?

However in recent shows we've gotten messages like "Oh I didn't get a callback so I didn't think I was getting a part" This is even for people who want to be in the chorus. What's the expectation here?

On other times I've even cast people who weren't called back for that part simply because the other guys turned out to be duds. Or honestly, and actor is an actor whether he's playing person X or person Y.

Anyway sorry to rant, I just finished a set of auditions and casting was slightly painful.
