Independence Day marks the vacation period from acting. Projects are usually on hiatus, auditions are down, reps and actors alike take vacations. In about two weeks, the new acting season begins. Auditions start to trickle in between mid July and the end of August, when episodic season takes off, followed by winter holidays and the traditional pilot season. There are always exceptions. For now, enjoy the holiday if you are celebrating and your time off otherwise, then get ready for the new year of acting.
