The article offers information on the role of monitors in the audition of the Actors' Equity Association. In order to become a Equity Monitor one has to be a member of the association's union for at least one year. Around 12 to 15 monitors work in a given region, and they try to cover for one another when one has an audition. Monitors are guaranteed a slot for themselves in the auditions they are working.
