If you know house codes, I advise against disclosing them publicly. Universal will fire employees for sharing the information.
Glad to hear they brought back house codes! It wasn’t as fun being assigned to “House 4” last time.

"All puppeteer positions have been filled." Well goddamn, congrats to all the puppeteers that are going to scare and entertain the hell out of me this year!! Can't wait to see what y'all do.

(House 4 was the code.)

Universal is unlikely to ever shift back to public-facing code “names” again.
Ah, gotcha. That’s unfortunate because there was a lot of excitement and a sense of camaraderie around those code names.

Lol one year we knew every name ahead of time it was kind of crazy
The names were on call sheets at the auditions. So people who were never Universal employees would gain access to them, and share them publicly. Then they started giving them out when casting calls were made. And people would talk to see where their friends were and they would leak in spurts. So, if they don’t do code names there’s nothing to leak.

I just remember one year (21 maybe?) where all the names were on the permits or something and we knew all the names waaay ahead of time lol

There were the Sports codenames in 2019 that were used a little bit backstage, if very sparingly. I suppose those would be the last ones as of right now.

Maybe a dumb question but does anyone who's worked the event before know what time you usually have to show up for your shift? Im pondering the idea of Auditioning but im a college student don't know if Id be able to do it if the clock in time is like 3pm or something that early lmao.

Depends on where you’re cast and what cast you’re on. Cast calls are split by 45 minutes with cast A arriving (and typically leaving) first. You’re typically required about an hour to 90 minutes before your first set. So, if you’re cast A and your first set is at 6:00, your call is around 4:45 pm. If you’re cast B and your first set is at 7:45, then you call is around 6:30 pm.
