Getting Cast but not a Callback?

Postby CourfeyracNroll » Thu Sep 10, 2015 8:57 pm

I recently auditioned for my school's fall play. (Specifically, Wednesday and Tuesday of this week.) Call backs were posted today, and I didn't make the list. Although I don't feel particularly good about my audition, I was wondering how common it is to get cast without having a callback?

Thanks for your feedback! :mrgreen:

Depends on how your director works. I was always trained to only call back if I was unsure after the audition, otherwise you're just wasting their time and yours, but equally many directors especially at an amateur level call back everyone they're interested in. Good luck!

Thanks for your reply!!
Unfortunately, I didn't get cast, though I am going to be in charge of costumes and makeup for the show. :mrgreen:
But good to know for future reference! :)
