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

    The admin isn't actively monitoring the posts. If you want to complain about a particular post, thread, orposter, you need to email them at

    ...and that's why they're useless. It's very easy for them to ignore private emails. If they're going to call themselves an admin, they should be actively monitoring the site that they own.

    I totally agree that they SHOULD be actively moderating the site, but they're not, so saying "Hey, Admin!" isn't helpful. The admin DID say in an earlier thread that if anyone has a complaint about a particular post or thread, to email him at So if you do that, at least there's a CHANCE they'll do something, or at least take a stand on whether there's a TOS and rules, or whether this is a free-for-all.

    (Didn't Tom once say he was planning to start a "new" Audition Update-type forum, since his non-compete clause had expired? What ever happened with that?)

    I think this site was meant to empower the underdog, to some degree, but letting those of us in the EPA/open call world share information and opinions. The hateful exchanges here are disturbing to me and makes me wonder what demons need to be confronted on both sides of the casting table.

    Wow... some of you surely should consider seeing a therapist!!!

    Noodles your posts reek of misinformation, inexperience, and entitlement. Check yourself before posting in a public forum, or prepare to be called out.

    Late to the party, but just to clarify, I will be frequently monitoring AU and removing posts that violate our Community Guidelines as I see them. If you want to report any thread or post in particular, please send them to (And yes, we respond to all emails that are sent to us). Thanks for your patience through this and let's try to be civil, folks.
