Q&A: SNL rehearsal schedule? When does cast/musical guest rehearse (days and times?)?

Question by *Samantha*: SNL rehearsal schedule? When does cast/musical guest rehearse (days and times?)?
My friend and I are in new York Friday-Saturday and we want to visit the NBC studio tour. We love SNL and would love to know when is best to take a tour to see the SNL cast and musical guest.

Also, it would be cool to see jimmy Fallon, so I’m guessing that’s best on a friday.

My friend there is always a tour of the NBC Studios in New York. Therefore, you can go there anytime. Tours starts at the NBC Experience store, which is located on the ground floor of the GE Building (aka 30 Rockefeller Plaza).

In regards to Jimmy Fallon’s show. Tickets for “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” are available by calling their ticket office at (212) 664-3056. Please call for availability.

Generally, tickets are booked about one month in advance from the actual date of taping.

You can request up to four tickets, and all audience members must be at least 17 years old. You may only book tickets once every six months, and you may not book tickets with any other groups of people.

In addition, information about last minute ticket openings will be advertised through Jimmy’s Twitter updates at http://twitter.com/#!/LateNightJimmy.

For standby tickets, arrive no later than 9:00 a.m. on the morning of the taping under the “NBC Studios” marquee on the 49th Street side of 30 Rockefeller Plaza.

Only one ticket will be issued per person. All standby tickets not handed out at 9:00 a.m. will be placed at the NBC Studio Tour Desk on the second floor of the NBC Experience Store in Rockefeller Plaza.

Please note that a standby ticket does not guarantee admission.

To get to Rockefeller Center, take the “B”, “D”, “F” or “V” lines (Orange Line on the subway map) to 47th/50th Street.

I hope this information is very helpful.

Good luck
