This is another in my continuing series of questions and answers from a correspondent named Ann. I had written to her previously:
But, yes, if people call to ask you to audition, you do need to make the audition; or they’ll stop calling you.
Her follow up questions were:
Ok, that makes sense. But when are the auditions usually held? Mornings? Days? Evenings? Is there any leeway given to Moms with kids?
And my reply:
Auditions are normally held during business hours Monday through Friday. Of course, is writing that, I’m talking about the kind of auditions you go somewhere to record (casting agent, production house, etc.). The auditions from a web site like Voice123.com, as I think you know already, come in when they come it. Rarely, if ever, are ‘in person’ auditions held at any other time. And if there’s any leeway given for Moms with kids, I don’t know about it. If you’re calling to be at a casting agent for an audition at 2:00 PM on a Thursday, you’d probably better plan to be at the casting agent’s office right at 2:00 PM on Thursday, if you want a shot. Of course, when they call to schedule you for the audition, and the time requested doesn’t work, you can see if it’s possible to schedule for a different time slot; but that’s not always going to be possible.
