What Does It Mean When You Get a Callback?
It just means that the production team needs to see more from you. It is neither a good thing nor a bad thing. It does not mean that your child did not do well at their audition.
When will I know if I got a Callback?
Either the director will let you know at the end of the audition, or a group email will be sent out to everyone she wants to see over the weekend.
What should do to prepare for my callback?
Usually at callbacks, you will be asked to sing something from the show— the team will let you know what you will be singing. You will also be asked to dance, so dress comfortably! If you have long hair, bring a ponytail holder in case you need to have your hair out of your face. You will probably be given some “sides” from the script to read along with other people also auditioning. Bring bottled water (no glass bottles, please) to stay hydrated. Remember that your audition/callback should start AS SOON AS YOU WALK THROUGH THE DOOR. Are you being attentive and cooperative? Are you following directions well?
How Soon Will You Hear About a Callback After an Acting Audition?
MMT will send out the cast list before the 1st rehearsal!
How Many People Get Callbacks?
Sometimes there will be only a handful of people who receive a callback, but sometimes there may be a rather large number of people called back. There may be 10, there may be 30!
Who Will Be in the Callback Audition?
MMT does closed auditions, but our callbacks are open to all who are called back. You should expect to meet the Director, Music Director, Vocal Director, and Choreographer.
