Actors' Equity Association

Only active, paid-up Equity Members will be seen. THESE AUDITIONS ARE ONLY FOR AEA MEMBERS WHO ARE NOT SIGNED CLIENTS OF ANY AGENT. Please do not sign up to audition if you are currently signed with an agent. See Breakdown for more information.


Prepare ONE brief song [whatever you do best: rock, country, musical theatre (contemporary or traditional), etc.]. Self-written pieces, opera & operetta are not appropriate for AAAs. No monologues. Bring sheet music; accompanist provided. Bring THREE sets of your stapled-together picture/resume


Actors' Equity New York Audition Center
165 West 46th Street
16th Floor
New York, NY 10036


Equity-franchised agents expected at this session from The Talent Mine, Plaza 7 Talent, and The Price Group.


Each NYC-area AEA-franchised agency will attend at least one AAA session (either musical or dramatic) per year. Approximately 30 AAA calls will be held annually.


An Equity monitor will be provided.
Performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are encouraged to attend.
Always bring your Equity Membership card to auditions.


Auditions are sponsored by Actors' Equity Association. Provided free of charge as a benefit of Equity Membership. AEA thanks the National Association of Talent Representatives (NATR) for its assistance in the development of this program.

14-Agency AAA Sign-up Limit: So that a greater number of interested Equity Members will have the opportunity to be seen at Agent Access Auditions, only Equity Members who have already been seen by 14 agencies or fewer at 2010 AAA sessions may be signed up for this audition. This policy replaces the previous 5-AAA limit. See separate notice titled "14-Agency AAA Sign-up Limit" for more information.

Modified Equity Principal Audition procedures will be in effect for these Agent Access Auditions:

> There will be no evening sign-ups. SIGN-UP WILL BEGIN AT 8:30 AM on audition day. Sign-up will end at 9:30 AM or when all 54 slots have been taken and 50 alternates have been signed up, whichever comes first.

> As at Equity Principal Auditions, Equity cannot guarantee that any alternates will be seen.

> Only active, paid-up Equity Members will be seen. Bring your Equity Card to sign-up.

> The Equity Auditions Department Office Service Window is open from 9:30 AM – 10:30 AM and from 1 PM – 2 PM only. Because the window will open after sign-up ends and close before auditions begin, Equity staff will not be able to provide “day passes” to Members who have lost or forgotten their Membership Cards. Be sure to replace your lost card before audition day!

> The Audition Center will close at 5:30 PM, and will re-open at 6:30 PM (only for those who have signed up for this AAA). As at EPAs, check in with the Equity Monitor at least 10 minutes prior to your scheduled audition slot.

Performers of all ethnic and racial backgrounds are encouraged to attend.
