it's kind of weird that their doing open auditions, cuz, didnt the show begin as an actors equity thing?

i'd so try out too, but i'ts not in my area. plus, i'd only be of age for the last one, since my 16th birthday is two days before the NY audition....and living in the Bay Area wouldnt help too much with that

1 year off

Do you think that even though im 16 and the audition is for 17-21, they might let me audition anyways? could that would really suck if i was off by one year. and i could pull off being 17

My guess...

is that the theater is more concerned with getting people *just* out of high school or able to get a GED, given the intense performance schedule, moreso than your ability to play one year older.

It's a new show. I'd say add them as a friend on myspace (where they blog about stuff like this), and keep watching the website for future auditions. They will happen.

Age and such

They don't care too strictly about young age and 16 is fine for boys. I'm 15 and a girl and they don't care. There is a 15 yo girl in the cast already. There are a few more still in highschool. They don't want you to play older because 14 and 15 are the ages of the characters. They want older people because some parts cannot be played by anyone under the minimum ages. I'm sure they would mind 22 or 23 year olds much if they look young enough at the audition. Also the first round wasn't Actors Equity because most of the highschool kids and a couple of the older ones didn't have an equity card of course.

Do add them as a friend for more info though!

Hope this was helpful.
