They aren't yet. They are currently letting internal regulars (people who work part-time or Full-time for Universal that auditioned) know that they are being looked at for certain roles and that they need to turn in certain forms by Friday. I'm not thinking they will be hiring too many people externally this year, but i'd say those auditions should happen by late July/Early August if they are going to happen.Anyone heard any news or update on public HHN scare actor auditions?
I've been thinking the same that there might not be any. I think they don't want to hire anyone from outside right now. Hiring people means giving free admission when they need people to buy APs and such. Plus, with less scareactors this year, it's probably not really necessary.I haven't seen much pointing to there being any external auditions this year. Internal people have been getting cast as of last week, but as of yesterday quite a lot of veteran actors have also been getting full out rejection emails, which I'm fairly certain is not a thing that happens normally. They usually just don't email you if they don't want you.
If there was any year to stick to smaller casts and internal talent, this would be it. I definitely recommend you keep looking at the Uni auditions website over the next month or two just in case it pops up, but I'd also be prepared for them to just not happen this year. There's really no predicting it.

Looks like, if you measure between 5'4" and 5'6"...well son, you're just plain out of luck this year. Every other height? Come on in!!!
That’s how they cast. The roles are sized with a couple of inches based on the costumes. Obviously, they’ve already cast all the roles that are that height.Looks like, if you measure between 5'4" and 5'6"...well son, you're just plain out of luck this year. Every other height? Come on in!!!
Seriously though, did no one read this before they put it out?
Three inches really makes that much of a difference? What if you just stand a little straighter, or slump down a bit? If you're 5'5", you could probably pass for 5'3", or 5'7". It just seems oddly specific to me.That’s how they cast. The roles are sized with a couple of inches based on the costumes. Obviously, they’ve already cast all the roles that are that height.
EDIT - Whoever drafted that was likely working off a character sheet and was checking blocks. It’s completely normal.
It’s the difference between wearing your pants like high-waters or them dragging on the ground, and it’s the difference between a midriff and a night shirt.Three inches really makes that much of a difference?

I have yet to hear back. I've seen someone on twitter who did an external audition say she got accepted, so. Playing the waiting game still.Has anyone heard back after the external audition?
