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

    Anyone at these appointments and can say if they are running on time or behind? Also what their asking for? They didn’t reply to my email so I wasn’t sure if it’s just a cold read or if they need other stuff.

  • Macbeth EPA @ Actor's Equity Center 10/21/2018  11:57am

    Any news on whether they're seeing non-eq/ what the list looks like?


    I believe this call is tomorrow, not today.

    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?



    Arealniceclambake 10/20/2018  10:54am

    unless they specifically say they only want sheet music why not bring your instrument if it can accompany you? if it's to cumbersome just make sure you've highlighted your ability on your resume.

    Tecoloteseesall 10/20/2018  4:25pm

    Are there appointments out for this yet

    Jdance 10/20/2018  10:17pm

    ^ I have not noticed this show come out in the agent breakdowns yet, so I assume there are no appointments out.

    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.

    Showbizdreamer 10/16/2018  8:48am

    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  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.

    penguin439 10/20/2018  7:20am

    Wouldn’t callbacks need to be ASAP, since the NY/London casting team that flew out here will go home?

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

    DannyAlmonteis27 10/20/2018  8:52am

    Does anyone know where the info for this is? I can’t seem to find it

  • 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
