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

    Wondering how much/what from the packet those who are having 1st appointments off of AA submission are being asked for ITR today, thanks! (Prepared the packet, would just love a lil heads up.)

    Leading Lady 05/03/2018  9:45am

    Bump on what they were asking for ITR

    Badandboujee 05/03/2018  12:35pm

    On the websites it specifies what to prepare like “Prepare this cut, this side.”

    Smactor 05/03/2018  1:11pm

    OverTheMoon 05/04/2018  6:23am

    I know there are more appointments today so maybe there won't be CBs till after today? Idk! Fingers crossed for all!

    panforever 05/04/2018  9:06am

    for those of you who had your CB appts yesterday, did they generally end up having y'all perform everything mentioned in the packet?

    janisjoplinmanuel 05/04/2018  9:15am

    janisjoplinmanuel I sang one of the songs and did both of the requested sides for the team.

    Badandboujee 05/05/2018  8:22pm

    Agent Email with Callback just received

    LITTLESINGERGIRL 05/05/2018  9:15pm

    Anyone else get agent callbacks? Wondering how much longer I have to keep checking my email so obsessively...

    panforever 05/06/2018  11:03am

    Agent email just received with callback for Wednesday

    Actor55 05/06/2018  12:02pm

    Yasqueen 05/06/2018  9:53pm

    Any CBs out for Lauren?

    janisjoplinmanuel 05/06/2018  11:03pm

    Bump on Lauren CBs

    panforever 05/07/2018  7:48am

    does anyone know what roles they are REALLY looking to replace? so many of the cast members are posting about going back in 10 weeks for the next leg that it is hard to figure out what these callbacks really mean...

    openspace14 05/07/2018  9:49am


    KnightErrant 05/07/2018  10:06am

    Received a callback for Lauren over the weekend

    Thatblondebitch 05/07/2018  10:48am

    From my understanding this call isn’t for the Asia leg, it’s for the next US leg that rehearses in November

    CheeseSandwich 05/07/2018  11:04am

    Lauren callback just received

    Fizzy14 05/07/2018  11:59am

    Are Angels getting callbacks?

    GeneKelly101 05/07/2018  9:33pm

    GeneKelly101 05/09/2018  11:23am

    Bump on female swing?

    forthememoir32 05/09/2018  11:43am

    Anything after today’s callbacks?

    Fizzy14 05/09/2018  4:21pm callback was given after my appointment on Monday. I did more material with the associates yesterday than at my initial appointment.

    CompletelyForgettable21 05/09/2018  4:32pm

    Bump on final callbacks after this round of CB

    singinggirl101 05/09/2018  4:43pm

    Just received a call from my agent with a final callback.

    Thatblondebitch 05/09/2018  6:09pm

    Bump for pat, female swing etc final callbacks ?

    singinggirl101 05/09/2018  7:08pm

    Final CB for Pat/Marge (didn't know Marge was in the tour- please let me know if anyone has info there). Does anyone know what song the movement call is to by chance? Studying the music to get it in my body helps in my movement. ;)

    Leading Lady 05/09/2018  7:25pm

    @leadinglady when did you hear about your CB??

    singinggirl101 05/09/2018  7:25pm

    Any final CBs out for Lauren?

    panforever 05/09/2018  7:54pm

    Bump. Anything heard this morning?

    Fizzy14 05/10/2018  11:01am

    Bump? News? Updates?

    panforever 05/10/2018  2:50pm

    I don’t think we’re going to be hearing anything after tonight, unless you don’t already have an appointment for tomorrow! Today’s movement call was just to get an idea of our personality and such that they said they weren’t making cuts. I’d assume that we’ll just see them tomorrow!

    singinginthecorner 05/10/2018  3:22pm

    @singinginthecorner do you know what roles were in the room today?

    panforever 05/10/2018  4:22pm

    @singinginthecorner more specifically as in do you know if it was just ensemble? Principals? Everyone?

    panforever 05/10/2018  4:25pm

    From what I gathered it was a bit of everyone :) leads, supporting, and ensemble.

    singinginthecorner 05/10/2018  7:34pm

    @singinginthecorner Thanks so much for the info! Break legs tomorrow!

    panforever 05/10/2018  7:39pm

    Anyone from todays Angel callbacks get an email for CB's tomorrow (Friday) or is it just Principals?

    LeggyLad 05/10/2018  8:02pm

    Okay y’all, the sex is in the bump after the weekend. Post with any info on offers being sent out!

    singinginthecorner 05/14/2018  12:44pm


    Texas_Gal2011 05/15/2018  9:07am

    Give it time, y’all - the cast hasn’t even been to Asia yet. Who knows when they’ll get the offers for next leg. I think it could be a couple months, honestly.

    CheeseSandwich 05/15/2018  10:32am

    I received an email stating I am in High consideration for the Tour(November-June) awaiting final approval from Creative team.

    WIsleeper 05/15/2018  7:05pm

    Congrats! Mind if I ask which track? I wonder if that means the current cast got their American leg renewals then..

    CheeseSandwich 05/15/2018  10:53pm


    WIsleeper 05/16/2018  2:37pm

    Did anyone else receive an email like this? Angels?

    KnightErrant 05/18/2018  12:17pm

    Just received an email that stated I'm still in consideration and that they are still finalizing the current cast.

    Texas_Gal2011 05/18/2018  12:40pm

    Same! Break legs all!

    CheeseSandwich 05/18/2018  2:06pm

    Bump for offers!

    KnightErrant 05/29/2018  11:22am


    KnightErrant 05/29/2018  1:14pm

    Last email I got like two weeks ago said end of June/beginning of July we'd hear, if anything!

    BananaCan'tDoTheSplits 05/29/2018  9:10pm
