What’s the difference between an Equity audition and an “OPEN” audition?

Equity Principal Auditions (EPAs) and Equity Chorus Calls (ECCs) are auditions at which all Equity members are seen on an equal basis. In New York, Chicago and Los Angeles, EPAs and ECCs are run by Equity audition monitors.

At an OPEN audition, Equity members and non-Equity actors are seen on an equal basis. Equity neither runs OPEN calls nor provides Equity audition monitors for them. The producer runs all aspects of an OPEN call and is not bound by Equity’s audition procedures.
