Callbacks - dismissed before other contenders?
Last night I was at a callback - one of the 4 contenders for the part
They dismissed me and another guy early, keeping 2 of the others, who were also reading for other parts (but stated that they needed them to read more for the part all 4 of us were auditioning for for some scenes). Previously, one of the guys got to read for the part 3 times for the same scene because they did the scene 3 times to alternate contenders for other part(s). I only got to read once for that scene.
They said "this doesn't mean we're not considering you or that you're not cast".
I asked "do you not need us to sing?" and they said "no, we've heard all we need from you guys at the initial audition, thank you!"
So, was this just them being nice? what are the chances I got the part? if one is dismissed early but there's still others that are kept for the same part you're going for? Does this mean they don't need to see anymore from you because they're certain they aren't casting you?
Any input is appreciated
