Callbacks are a time when the director can see specific students read for specific roles and get a better understanding of where he/she fits into the cast.  Simply because a student is on the callback list does not necessarily mean he or she will earn a part.  Also, if a student is not on the callback list, that doesn't necessarily mean he or she has been cut.  Only students listed on the callback list should attend callbacks.  You can find the callback list on the callback page.  It may be that callbacks won't be necessary.  In that case, the cast list will be posted after the second audition date.

The cast list will be posted after callbacks on the cast list page.  You should visit the production forms page to download the rehearsal calendar and obtain other information you need for cast and crew members.
