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

    Was anyone else asked to sing 3 8 bar cuts when in the room!? I did and I don’t know if that means anything

    Jennasan 04/05/2018  1:42pm

    Not 3 cuts but I was asked to do another song after I did my 8 bar cut. No idea if it means we'll get called back, but it can't be a bad thing that they wanted to hear more from you, especially when they were so busy.

    EeeZee 04/09/2018  10:21am

    Did anyone with a prescreen email receive and appointment confirmation yet after emailing their availability last night? I went to the open call if that helps.

    Twinkle 04/09/2018  10:06pm

    loverlee 04/10/2018  7:27pm

    Work session for Tevye scheduled this week. Email says auditions for "team" will be week of 4/16, with CBs the week of 4/23.

    ThaDudeAbides 04/10/2018  7:30pm

    Any cbs/work sessions for Perchik or Motel? Thanks!

    MR123 04/11/2018  2:14pm

    I have a work session/cb for Perchick this week

    FrederickDouglas 04/11/2018  4:31pm

    Can anyone who had a work session today or yesterday give an idea of what to expect? Like who is ITR, did you do all the material you were given, was it really a "work session" or did you just do your stuff and go?

    ellespeaks 04/12/2018  5:03pm

    Nothing for Motel?!

    bwaylvsong 04/12/2018  6:30pm

    Some people are getting adjustments, others are singing/reading and that's it. There was at least one person in for Motel while I was there, and a few Perchiks. I sang and read all that they told me to prepare.

    ThaDudeAbides 04/12/2018  7:06pm

    Jason and Andrea were in the room, plus a female reader.

    ThaDudeAbides 04/12/2018  7:07pm

    Nothing yet for "adult" women? Golde/ Yente / Granda Tzeitle?

    EeeZee 04/12/2018  8:42pm

    Callbacks for second round are April 16/ aka Monday? So we would hear this weekend?

    Jennasan 04/12/2018  9:46pm

    Thanks, ThaDude!

    bwaylvsong 04/12/2018  11:30pm

    Did anyone get a cb after the female dance open call?

    Mananayaw 04/13/2018  8:52am

    Gyoza 04/15/2018  9:52am

    So I’m assuming if we haven’t heard we are no longer in consideration?

    Jennasan 04/15/2018  8:08pm

    does anyone know who from creative will be ITR on Monday? or any information relating to who will be there?

    star2bwanab 04/15/2018  10:31pm

    I’m guessing callbacks are out, but maybe not. I still haven’t heard anything about any ‘adult’ women roles (Golde, Yente, ensemble).

    loverlee 04/15/2018  11:00pm

    I haven't heard anything about Tevye/Lazar CBs, either.

    ThaDudeAbides 04/15/2018  11:04pm

    EthanTheEmu 04/17/2018  12:45pm

    I guess none of the old farts auditioning for Tevye/Lazar/Golde/Yente/etc. are on here. (except for two of us)

    Has anybody seen anyone going in for these roles at callbacks this week?

    ThaDudeAbides 04/17/2018  6:42pm

    ellespeaks 04/19/2018  8:23pm

    A new thread was created for "final callbacks", but the info is more revealing (and puzzling) than just that.
