A few things to note about live casting calls:
- Take a non-returnable recent photo of any size that can go with your application. Write your name and contact info on the back of it.
- You do not need to print the application off the website – They will have a shorter one for you to complete at the casting call.
- Come dressed to impress (but wear comfy shoes) & dress weather appropriate.
- Casting producers will do their best to see the first 500 people in line. Lining up is not allowed prior to three hours before the start of the casting call.
