"Thank you for attending the auditions for the “New Testament” production last month! We had the privilege to audition 1,138 people in our Utah-based auditions and 1,564 others based elsewhere in the United States, Canada, Europe and South America.
This e-mail is to let you know you have made the FIRST-CUT and are currently being considered as an EXTRA or Featured Extra. This means:
(1) You have the physical characteristics we are looking for; but, based on your audition, are not being considered for a speaking role.
#2 was about growing my hair, not sure that's possible actually. I'll have to think about that.
(3) Even though you have made it through the first cut, this does NOT guarantee you a role as an Extra. This will depend greatly upon your schedule and our various needs day by day."
Another snippet from the e-mail- "...As we do not yet know if you have a role, let alone which role it may be..."
Time will tell I guess... :)
