Audition Update is moving. Click here to learn more.

Hello Everyone,

You’ve heard us talking about it all summer, and we’re finally ready to show you what we’ve been working on. I’m proud to announce that is moving to its new home on the Backstage Community.

What are the benefits of this new location? It’s anonymous, it's mobile-friendly, it’s easier to police spam content and fake accounts, and best of all, it has collapsed threads! In addition, our developer team will be able to make changes, fix bugs, and implement new features much faster and easier on this new platform.

You’ll notice there’s a banner across the top of the screen here advertising the new location. If you click through that link, it will bring you to the registration screen where you can create your account and automatically receive the “Veteran” flair for being an Audition Update user. Even if you already have a Backstage account, clicking through the link will grant you the flair automatically so everyone will know you’ve been here a while and know what you’re talking about.

We’ll be decommissioning this forum slowly over the coming weeks, so you should save any threads or details that you want to reference later at your earliest convenience.

We know this will really help to improve things here at Audition Update, and we want to thank you - the community - for being here with us through the whole process.

– The Backstage Community Team

    Please post updates about this EPA! Are they seeing non-eqs? Is it crowded??


    I seriously doubt you'll find anyone from the Bay Area posting here as this is an NY based site...LA calls rarely make it on here as it is, so Bay Area will be even less so, it's a much smaller community out there.

    also looking for info on this call regarding whether they are seeing non-eq. If anyone knows anything. Thanks!!!

    penguin439 10/16/2018  12:19pm

    No word on whether they’ll get to non-equity folks just yet. Monitor says late afternoon looks light so it’s possible. Over 50 names on the non-equity list that I know of. Likely there are more.

    Gradgirl27 10/16/2018  1:43pm

    Thanks for the update. Any news since then as to whether any non eq have been seen ?

    penguin439 10/16/2018  7:01pm

    Non eqs were seen. Not sure if all of them were/are though. #26 non eq seen around 3:45

    samuelseabury 10/16/2018  7:20pm

    Oh hey Bay Area peeps, thanks for responding!

    Showbizdreamer 10/16/2018  10:49pm

    hello, any news from today about the crowd size, and non equity chances?

    lamarckian 10/17/2018  1:57pm

    ^ seconding this, if anyone knows anything

    penguin439 10/17/2018  4:22pm

    Does anyone know if callbacks were given in the room? Has anyone heard anything yet? Also, does anyone know who was in the room at yesterday’s audition (10/16)? I couldn’t find the info posted, and the monitor seemed too stressed for me to bother.

    srp326 10/17/2018  10:01pm

    Are they asking for British rp?

    lamarckian 10/18/2018  12:58am

    What is today like for non eq list? Thank you!

    lamarckian 10/18/2018  10:39am

    lamarckian 10/18/2018  12:51pm

    Apparently Tuesday was the heaviest day and weds/thurs were both pretty chill. Curious if anyone will hear anything for awhile regarding callbacks etc as rehearsals don’t even start until summer 2019.

  • WSS Maltz Jupiter nyc appts @ 10/19/2018  2:38pm

    anyone who submitted to Bob Cline casting for West Side Story at Maltz Jupiter receive an nyc appointment yet?


    Not yet.. was wondering when we might hear

  • Jesus Christ Superstar (National Tour) @ Actor's Equity Center 10/19/2018  11:21pm

    The casting call says to 'please note any guitar / instrument skills'... does this mean we can/should bring/play our instrument/s in the audition as part of our piece? Or bring a piece with sheet music and our instrument separately? Or not bring an instrument at all?

  • Jersey Boys @ other 10/19/2018  12:02pm

    Has anyone received appointments yet for this audition coming up on the 24th?


    I got mine a couple of weeks ago!

    FamousEmcBoi 10/19/2018  12:44pm

    Received an appt yesterday.

  • MacBeth 10/22 - 10/24 @ Actor's Equity Center 10/19/2018  10:38am

    Any thoughts on likelihood of non-eq getting seen on any of these days?


    I'm also wondering if there's a chance these were cancelled as the Playbill ad was removed?

    tvingerson 10/19/2018  6:42pm

    I got seen at their last epa. And yes I believe it’s still on as it’s on the board in equity but you could contact the company to be sure I guess

  • Anna Karenina @ The Denver Center @ 10/18/2018  8:47pm

    Posted this in the Callback Corner as well but realized it may be more suited for here:

    Has anyone heard from their agents/Harriet or Gama about appointments? Thanks!



    OneLoveOneHeart 10/19/2018  12:03am

    I heard back from Harriet about taping since I’m out of town

  • From Here To Eternity ECC @ Ripley Grier 520 10/19/2018  6:09am

    List is taped outside! 3 on men's, 1 on women's. They're currently splitting one piece of paper (men's on left, women's on right), so if/when someone arrives with another piece of paper, if you wouldn't terribly mind copying them into separate pieces (to increase the odds of unofficial being taken) that would be amazing!


    Didn’t bring paper, otherwise I would have!

    lmkaboutthisaudition 10/19/2018  6:19am

    Didn’t bring paper, otherwise I would have!

    lmkaboutthisaudition 10/19/2018  6:23am

    Bump for list numbers

    mishi3 10/19/2018  6:52am

    10 men’s, 3 women’s last I checked. Is there any reason why there is also an unofficial list for the men’s ECC at Pearl?

    Human1stDancer1025th 10/19/2018  7:23am

    Someone probably thought the call was there. But if there are all these different lists, and no one separates the men and women on two pieces of paper, they probably won’t accept it, so if someone could do that, that would be really nice!!

    lmkaboutthisaudition 10/19/2018  7:29am

    Lists are separated!

    lmpren 10/19/2018  7:40am

    thank you to whoever separated the mens and womens! all the names were transferred right?

    5678kick 10/19/2018  8:40am

    Bump for confirmation that names were transferred?

    michy 10/19/2018  9:08am

    All names from single sheet on Ripley-Grier were transferred!

    lmpren 10/19/2018  9:42am

    Can someone post how many nonunion folk signed up and if they're closing the list?

    Pipe down 10/19/2018  9:51am


    5678kick 10/19/2018  11:58am

    Did noneq guys get seen?

    lizzardsnblizzards 10/19/2018  2:36pm

    Monitor said at lunch that noneq men started to be seen around 11:30 this morning.
    Can someone keep us posted here about noneq women? I’m running over shortly!
    Thank you!

    dobbykat 10/19/2018  2:40pm

    Non-eq women are being seen! I think they called through around 17 on the non-eq list.

    lmpren 10/19/2018  3:15pm

    What time is the list being closed?

    dobbykat 10/19/2018  3:20pm

    It looks like they closed the auditions early. I just got to the room and no one is here.

  • Dirty Flirty 30 @ Nola Studios 10/19/2018  4:37pm

    Anyone know what time check in for this is starting?? Slash will they be accepting an unofficial list?

  • Dance of Death @ Actor's Equity Center 10/19/2018  8:06am

    In case anyone is going for this one only handful on non union list as well, no word on if non union are being seen. I have heard this theatre has seen non eq in past.


    Also sent upstairs , only like 3 people on non union list none seen yet.

    Rosecat 10/19/2018  9:36am

    All non union on this list called (only one of three present)

    Rosecat 10/19/2018  9:47am

    Have they said anything about seeing non-eq when they come back from lunch?
