‘Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?’ Auditions

leave a comment

Being on a game show might sound a little cheesy, but I know an actor who won thirty thousand dollars on ‘Millionaire’ and it allowed him to start pursuing his acting career full-time which he still does to this day.

You used to be able to sign up strictly to audition, but with audience seats proving harder to fill, now millionaire wannabes must sit through several show tapings before taking the test.  Consider it a warmup… a long, long, fidgety warmup.

The test is 50 questions multiple choice scantron-style.  If you pass the test, you are immediately led to be interviewed.  If you pass the short interview, you are immediately taken to be interviewed on tape.  Or so I hear.  I’ve taken the test six times, passed three, and not made it past the first interview (perhaps because I kept steering the conversation toward the movie ‘Quiz Show’ I don’t know).  The actor who won the thirty thousand dollars said NOT to mention you’re an actor during the interview, but I know another actor who did, and he eventually made it onto the show.  Still, if you have a day job, maybe just stick with that to be safe.

Here is a link to the page to get tickets and audition:  http://dadt.com/millionaire/tickets/form.html  Note the ‘People Auditioning in Party’ field right above the ‘Submit’ button.

I think shows are only taping this year through November so don’t waste any time to SPIN. THAT. PYRAMID!

Heery Casting in Philly

leave a comment

I received this through Jagger’s List.  I have never worked with Heery since I live in New York, but if you know any actors that live in the Philadelphia area it might be worth checking out.  If it isn’t, let me know to save other lives!

 

Heery Casting holds a monthly general audition for new professional actors on the last Monday of every month. The general audition is for consideration for principal work.
This is NOT for background work.

We limit the number of actors seen to allow ample time to see everyone fairly.

To be considered for the general auditions, please email a current picture in .jpg format only and resume in .pdf format only to: heerygeneralauditions@gmail.com. Please DO NOT send any links to your picture/resume or links to videos. They will NOT be opened.
Be sure to include in the body of your email: your name, phone number, and union status.

The next open call will be on MONDAY, AUGUST 26, 2013, with email registration closing by MONDAY, AUGUST 19, 2013.
If selected, you will receive an email with your specific appointment time by Friday, AUGUST 23, 2013.

For your appointment, please bring with you 2 (hard copy) copies of your professional picture and resume (with resume attached to the back) and a 1 to 2 minute monologue prepped at performance level.

We do NOT see children under age 18 at the general auditions. Children are only seen through an appointment made by an agent or Manager. Also, adult actors with professional representation may also be seen by a private appointment time made by their respective agent or manager.

Some advice:
* The general auditions are only for talent who are ready to compete in a professional market. Your presentation should reflect that.
Professional pictures in .jpg format only
Professional resume in .pdf format only
1-2 minute monologue ready at performance level
If you do not have these basic tools ready, please do not submit until they are ready.

* Auditions are held at our studio in PHILADELPHIA. Please do not submit unless you are able to travel to Philadelphia for auditions and jobs. All talent is considered “local” for the Philadelphia area.

Submissions from each month will be archived. If you are not selected this month, you will need to re-submit for consideration for another month’s general audition.

Please, NO PHONE CALLS to our office.

Our address is 2618-22 East Cumberland Street, Phila., PA 19125
