Read below if you would like some more information.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN YOU GET A CALLBACK?
Woo Hoo! It means that you probably prepared and worked really hard for your initial audition. The casting director/production team liked what they saw in your initial audition and are interested in seeing you again. This is a good thing!
If you get a callback, you did something the casting director/production team liked and/or you have exactly the “right” look or personality for the role. Or perhaps you perfectly captured the essence of the character or brought something unique and interesting to your audition.
When you don’t get a callback it does not mean that you did not do a good job in your audition. It may be that you were not right for the particular role being cast or just that some others were more right for that role. At Theatre 360 there are times we do not call people back but they are still cast.
DON’T CHANGE ANYTHING UNLESS INSTRUCTED TO DO SO
Something to remember about a callback is that they probably liked the way you looked and your performance in your previous acting audition, so you should try to repeat your look and what you did as closely as possible. This means you should wear exactly the same clothing and even fix your hair the same way. You want to give them what they got in the first audition.
Sometimes you will be given some additional instructions with the callback information. You might have additional or different sides for the callback or a specific change to your appearance or your performance that they want. In that case, you want to follow whatever additional instructions you are given. For example, you might be told to be less angry or not to act like you are cold in a particular scene, or you might be told to put your hair in a ponytail or to not put your hair in a ponytail. But don’t change anything unless you are instructed to do so.
HOW WILL YOU HEAR ABOUT A CALLBACK AFTER AN ACTING AUDITION?
At Theatre 360 we will post the callback list on our website an hour or two after the initial audition. In some cases we will let you know at the time of the callback, and where to find your sides for the callback the next day. Go to Theatre360.org then click on PRODUCTIONS on the Navigation Bar and click on CALLBACKS.
The list of students called back will include important information regarding preparing for your callback the next day. It is in your best interest to make sure you have enough time to prepare the material sent, in most cases it is learning a part of a song; or delivering sides to a scene; there are times where you will have multiple parts to read and/or sing for – we really encourage you to make the time to you feel confident to make choices and strut your stuff at the callback.
For professional auditions you may hear about a callback at the end of your audition, or shortly after your audition, or later the same day, or the next day or a couple of days later, a week later, or even a month or more after your audition. While there is no steadfast rule on this, you are generally notified of a callback within a few days for television show episodes, within a week or two for commercials, and for big roles in movies and television series, it tends to vary quite a lot, but it usually takes longer.
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 for a particular role. There may be five people or there may be twenty-five. It all depends on the production.
WHEN WILL THE CALLBACKS OCCUR?
- At Theatre 360 our callbacks are the day after auditions.
- For professional auditions sometimes a callback will occur the same day as the initial audition (most often when episodes of a television show are being cast). Sometimes you will need to return the next day or a couple of days after you are notified of the callback.
All the callbacks might be on one day, as is often the case for commercial callbacks or theatre callbacks or episodics; or the callbacks might be spread out over a period of time, as is often the case for casting for a lead role in a feature film or television show. You may even be called back multiple times for a single role, as is often the case for bigger roles in feature films and television shows and often for theatre as well.
WHO WILL BE IN THE CALLBACK AUDITION?
- At Theatre 360 callbacks you’ll see the production team: For a musical the Director, Choreographer, Musical Director, Stage Manager, and Producer. For a play the director, stage manager, and producer.
- For professional callbacks; there will often be more people present than were at your initial audition. It is common for directors and producers and other people involved in a project to be at a callback. So don’t be surprised when you walk into the room and see four or five or more people there to observe your audition and you.
- And remember! While getting a callback is a great thing, you still have to do the work, prepare, and be gracious, appreciative, and professional. A sincere and heartfelt thank you to the casting team, receptionist, and anyone else involved from the auditions through the casting process is classy!
Tips for a successful callback from our friends at PlayBill.com:
- Show-up to the callback prepared. Read the play/musical, and if you have had a script or side, be familiar with it. Or be ready to cold read.
- Directly before the callback audition, do relaxation exercises, meditation, or whatever tools you use to get centered and slowed down before working.
- Breathe. Remember that this is another opportunity to work. Avoid focusing on getting the part. Instead, focus on the work!
- Avoid looking at other actors, or at least cut off any dialogue you want to have with yourself about them. Without getting over-serious or totally unapproachable, stay focused on YOU. Others may try to talk or engage you. DO NOT let your concerns about seeming nice or likeable to anyone get in the way of what you need to do before you go in the audition room.
- Pay attention to what you are feeling. Use whatever is there to create. Find a connection between what you are feeling and who the character you are auditioning for is.
- Make sure to keep moving physically every few minutes or so. Stay loose.
- If you notice you want to impress the people you are auditioning for, take some deep breaths and focus instead on giving the best you can, for you.
- Most important, believe you are worthy of and deserve the part. Fight off all other voices. Give yourself a few callbacks to study yourself and get it right.
