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

    Hi friends quick question,

    I recently got my equity card but haven’t received the actual card. My email says “welcome and you will receive your card in the mail in 2-3 weeks” it has my member Number and I have paid completely. Do I have to go get a temporary card every time I go to an audition before I get my actual card in the mail or is this email sufficient?

    Thank you!!


    Get a temp card. So much easier! And they can do it in a second cause it’s literally like a post it lol

    Hold on to your temporary card until your official one comes. Works everytime and they print it out right at the membership department. I joined in Oct was told I would recieve mine by early Dec and it never came. I had them re-issue me one again and I just got my offcial card today.

    Yes, get a temporary card.

    No, the office won't be open on Monday for the holiday.
