What to wear? An outfit that allows you to move, but is still all-dark and professional.
What will you do? You will be given scenes to perform with different people. It is a COLD reading which means we do not expect you to be memorized, but we still expect to see character in your face, voice, and gestures.
What is the purpose of a "callback?" We are seeing how well you take direction along with your chemistry with certain actors/actresses.
If you are NOT on the Callback List, do not freak out! You could still be in the show; wait for the official Cast List.
