I keep seeing two different deadlines for this. Some sites say July 1st and other say June. Can you help clarify?

On the notification letter I got from AFTRA, the deadline was June 3rd for the New York region. I know Los Angeles Region has different submission period.

If you look at the audition, rehearsal, and showcase dates:

Auditions: June 9 – June 24
Callbacks and Scene Selection Process: July through August
Rehearsals: Sept. 9 – Sept. 19
ABC TALENT SHOWCASE: Sept. 20

there's no way July 1st is the deadline - as it's way passed the audition period.

yeah, I agree. I think different regions have different deadlines. I think LA is July 1st. Thanx!
