I've spoken to some of you who were planning on attending this upcoming "Mary Poppins" audition in New York. Just so everyone is aware, this is an Equity audition, which means there is little or no chance that anyone who is not in the Union will be able to audition. You will have to wait around all day to see if they will see any non-Union performers at the end. Just wanted to make sure everyone knew that.

Isn't this audition with adults? I agree with Julie. We have friends who have been auditioning for equity shows in New York City and they are not being seen because they don't have their equity cards. The best way is to get an appointment or wait until they have a children's call only.
