callbacks. It is also possible to be cast in the shows listed below, even without having received a
callback.

All callback information can be found in the Google Drive Folder:

Please note that we will email the address you provide on the google form. Double-check to make sure that it is correct.

MARIAN CALLBACKS
Tuesday, November 19th from 6:15p-10pm

“Due to fact that that callback time is limited, and I am not able to read sides for
all of the roles being cast. This means that I am still strongly considering several people for
various roles even though I did not call them back.

The script is still in the office if you would like to look at callback scenes earlier (pages are listed
in the google drive), and hard copies will be available at 5:45 pm at the callback space.”
–Alexis Black

Sidenote: If the sides mention “They kiss”, we will be using placeholders such as breath or
